U.S. trailer for Gareth Evans’s insane actioner The Raid has gone online. The film is apparently being billed as The Raid: Redemption here in the US, but it’s the same crazy action movie that’s had people buzzing for the last few months. Our own Matt Goldberg hailed it as “one of the best action movies in years” and Screen Gems is already hard at work on an English-language remake. The Indonesian pic boasts a simple premise: 20 elite SWAT team members must make their way up the treacherous floors of a criminal-infested highrise in order to get to the gang’s leader. As you can surmise, some ridiculous action sequences ensue and many of them are on full display in this US trailer. The film is the first in a planned trilogy from Evans, and he recently spoke to Steve at the Sundance Film Festival a bit about his plans for the follow-ups.
Little bit different trailer...still a lot of good fight scenes.
