Director Gareth Evans has been hard at work in post-production on the highly-anticipated sequel to The Raid: Redemption, The Raid 2: Berandal. While it isn't quite clear when the movie may hit theaters, the first banner has been released, featuring the entire cast. The sequel takes place about two hours after the events of the first movie, and the director teased that it will feature a fight scene with four people fighting inside a speeding car. Gareth Evans also sent out a series of tweets yesterday where he reveals some intriguing information about the action sequences and when we can expect the first trailer.
Teaser trailer sent for VFX work & grading. Scoring done. Sound mix next. Aiming at putting it out around 7/11 Nov if all goes smooth.— Gareth Evans (@ghuwevans) October 18, 2013
Saving a bunch of stuff for the main trailer hopefully end of December early January.— Gareth Evans (@ghuwevans) October 18, 2013
Not planning to put too many clips out there - seems a lot of films these days are showing way too much before they even release.— Gareth Evans (@ghuwevans) October 18, 2013
We have 17 action sequences in the film - so there’s going to be a lot fresh material unspoiled by any teaser or trailer we release.— Gareth Evans (@ghuwevans) October 18, 2013
At most both combined would equate to 3mins 30s. Last I checked - the action alone clocked in around 1hr 5mins mark.— Gareth Evans (@ghuwevans) October 18, 2013
