At INAFFF we premiered the extended trailer for THE RAID featuring a few extra bits of carnage and also a new piece of music by Fajar Yuskemal and Aria Prayogi (who also worked on the sound design for THE RAID while also composing the score for MERANTAU).

As promised, this version is now uploaded to Vimeo you can click the link or watch the embedded video below.

I promise I will answer your questions soon, most of which are about the delay of the Indonesian release. The reason I'm not saying much about that yet is that I'm waiting to having something concrete to tell you all.

As soon as I have something to announce I will. All I will say is that for those of you outside of Asia who usually are left waiting up to a year for a release, that's not the case this time...

Right, time to shut up now. More to come soon.

Apologies for the wait and my constant empty promises, but finally I've found some time to get back to the worlds worst kept blog and do some updates.

It's almost pointless me uploading this now seeing as it's already done the rounds considerably since the roller coaster that has been the last few months. But here it is anyway, a 720p HD upload of Sony's Red-Band trailer featuring music by Mike Shinoda and Joe Trapanese.
Right off the bat, this is a trailer for a film that has been made for adults. It is not intended for kiddos and contains a significant amount of blood and violence that could be seen as graphic and extreme, so you have been warned.

To quote Todd Brown ....
"Iko Uwais is a charming country boy no more....Twitch is proud to premiere the first trailer for The Raid and while the concept of the Red-Band trailer is unknown in Indonesia let's just say that this first trailer ain't going to get shown on theater screens there any time soon. Or ever. Loaded with a combination of technical fighting and raw brutality the trailer gives it to you straight: This is a movie about a group of men who must kill or be killed and a whole lot of them aren't getting out alive. And as hard as this might be to believe after you've seen the trailer let me tell you this: As crazy as things get this does not spoil any of the biggest moments in the film."

Now watch and please don't forget to comment below...

Alternatively, you can also see it direct at Vimeo. Will update with more soon as well as answer some of your questions.
