THE RAID 2 Coming To U.S. Cinemas On March 28th!
Alright fans of cinema where hitting people in the face over and over again for the sake of entertainment is a great thing! You've been waiting to know when The Raid 2 Berandal is coming to a cinema near you. We have been sitting on this bit of news for a bit and we can finally reveal that date. Sony Pictures Classics and Stage 6 Films will be rolling out the highly anticipated sequel to Gareth Huw Evans international smash hit, The Raid Redemption, on March 28th. The film will have its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival where you can expect a quick response from our team on the ground during the fest.
"The Raid 2″ starts where the first film ended, with Uwais' character going undercover and infiltrating the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.
Expect the same basic release schedule. They'll start with the major markets first, watch the numbers, then roll out to more and more cities as the weeks progress. Do not fret if it does not come to you right away because they tried this approach last year and the film blew up and they basically threw away the schedule and tossed The Raid in all the cinemas after only a couple weeks.
This is going to be huge!!!
