THE RAID 2: BERANDAL Gets A U.S. Release Date!
The Raid 2: Berandal is all the hype among martial arts action cinema fans. If you have been keeping up with the updates, you have already seen the teaser for the upcoming thriller that succeeds its 2011 predecessor and are looking forward to what the sequel has in store, courtesy from its producers over at Merantau Films and XYZ Films.
Sony Pictures Classics and Stage 6 Films announced today that they will release THE RAID 2 in the United States on March 28. The film will have its World Premiere at the upcoming 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Written and directed by Gareth Evans, THE RAID 2 picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.
THE RAID 2 was produced by Ario Sagantoro for Merantau Films, and Aram Tertzakian and Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films. The film was executive produced by Rangga Maya Barack-Evans for Merantau Films, Irwan D. Mussry, Nick Spicer and Todd Brown on behalf of XYZ. Matt Flannery (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) and Dimas Imam Subhono served as cinematographers with Joseph Trapanese (THE BOURNE LEGACY), Aria Prayogi (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) and Fajar Yuskemal (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) scoring the picture.

@David O, I don't know why you support people pirate movies. If many people like you, then the creative people will lost the motivation to provide the good movies, and then we lost the best entertainment.
