    Wow, it looks amazing! Can’t wait to watch the final result. PS: What webpage did you get that pack of stills from?

  3. Alex says:

    By the way, do you think this film is going to be as amazing as “The Raid” saga was? By seeing the new pictures and posters, I hope so.

    • ToryK says:

      I wouldn’t come at it with that mindset. I think they’ll be similar in some areas, but overall, I think they’re gonna be different beasts.

    Oh man Julie Estelle, what a beauty! Trailer looks insane. Cant wait for this. Maybe we see a blu-ray version from Asia before movie hits US theatres. Yeah!

  5. HKFanatic says:

    The trailer looks insane, stylish, and violent – but also quite indebted to the look and feel of “The Raid 2.” I hope that the Mo Brothers are able to inject enough of their own aesthetic to help differentiate this from “The Raid” series. I mean, “Macabre” is still one of the best horror movies of the last sixteen years, in my humble opinion. And I think dropping Iko Uwais into the middle of a scenario like “Macabre” would be more interesting than just a simple retread of “The Raid 2.”

    • ToryK says:

      I agree with you, actually. Putting Uwais in a gory action-horror movie would be bonkers. I also think Edwards and the Mo Brothers may have a bit of a Tarantino/Rodriguez thing going on – trading/sharing vibes/ideas/actors. This may be an evolution of that. But I’m with you in hoping that the Mo’s bring their own tone and aesthetic to the proceedings.

  8. True iko fan says:

    This is NOT Japanese!! And why would you think it is? Iko Uwais and his entire team and cast are Indonesian. And it’s filmed in Indonesia. Just like the raid 1 and 2. If your gonna write and article you might wanna know what your talking about first.

  9. True iko fan says:

    NOT JAPANESE….its Indonesian. Google it

  10. True iko fan says:

    I’ll take a note from trump and admit no wrong doing. We should be playing American only trailers and build a wall around Japan before they attack us again.trust me

  11. Jimmy P says:

    Why oh why can’t they release this on blu-ray? Lionsgate pulls this kind of crap all the time with their foreign film pick-ups. I guess that I will just have to import it.

    • Yeah, I’m really surprised. They need someone new to market their release of this movie. I would have used the key word “RAID” all over its cover, etc. Word on the street is that Arrow Video has the Blu-ray rights. Just waiting for the official word.

      • Paul Bramhall says:

        If Arrow Video has the Blu-ray rights then I’d definitely pick this up! A Lionsgate DVD-only release feels like it would be a disservice to this movie. Arrow would probably deliver some gritty extras as well.

        • Kung Fu Bob says:

          Agree with you both. Not mentioning THE RAID on the packaging? Huh? Huge marketing FAIL. And further, Lionsgate is screwing up with not only the DVD-only thing, but I am pretty sure I’ve picked up a few of their releases where the only English subtitles were the ones for the hearing impaired, including such distracting subs as “Music cue here” and “Engine makes a loud sound”. Lazy. I’ll definitely be ordering the (hopefully extras-laden) release from Arrow. They are putting it out in the UK on June 5th, which is fine with me as I own a multi-region player. I hope they release it as an R1 Blu-ray here in the states though for real fans that only have regular players. But I don’t think that’ll happen if Lionsgate has it for DVD…

  12. Paul Bramhall says:

    So Arrow are giving it a UK Blu-ray release? Perfect! Every day I’m more & more thankful that I put that extra bit of leg work in to make sure I purchased a multi-region player for both DVD’s & Blu-rays, it really makes all the difference. Shall add it to my existing Arrow pre-order of ‘Wolf Guy’ & ‘Doberman Cop’. “Sound of wallet rustling.”
