When your writer had the chance earlier this year to chat with directors Gareth Evans and Timo Tjahjanto about their utterly bonkers contribution to the V/H/S/2 horror anthology, I also made sure to ask the former about The Raid 2: Berandal, Evans’ then-shooting sequel to his 2011 instant action classic The Raid: Redemption. Evans’ reply? “It’s been crazy.”
To be honest, given that The Raid effectively took the rulebook of action movie crazydom, blasted it with a shotgun, set it on fire, and then threw it from the top of a skyscraper, that wasn’t a particularly enlightening response. But now we can all enjoy a more generous taste of the lunacy to come, thanks to a teaser trailer for R2:B, which you can check out in all its hyper-violent glory below.
