Sony Pictures has released these five clips from Gareth Evans’ insane yet thoroughly awesome action flick ‘The Raid: Redemption.’ Planned to be the first film in a trilogy, ‘The Raid: Redemption’ has been massive hit on the festival circuit – winning the much coveted Midnight Audience Award at TIFF. The film stars Iko Uwais, Doni Alamsyah, Ananda George, Pierre Gruno, Yayan Ruhian, Ray Sahetapy, Tegar Satrya, and Verdi Solaiman, while Linkin Park‘s Mike Shinoda is on score duty. ‘The Raid: Redemption’ is released in cinemas March 23rd in the US and May 18th in the UK.

As a rookie member of an elite special-forces team, Rama (Iko Uwais) is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord from a rundown fifteen-story apartment block. But when a spotter blows their cover, boss Tama (Ray Sahetaphy) offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, rapist and thief in the building in exchange for their heads. Now Rama must stand in for the team’s fallen leader (Joe Taslim) and use every iota of his fighting strength – winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life.

‘The Raid: Redemption’ is written, edited and directed by Gareth Huw Evans, and stars Iko Uwais, Joe Taslim, Doni Alamsyah, Yayan Ruhian, Pierre Gruno, Ray Sahetapy and Tegar Satrya.  The film is produced by Ario Sagantoro and executive produced by R.

Mussry, Nate Bolotin and Todd Brown. ‘The Raid: Redemption’ is a production of Merantau Films in association with Celluloid Nightmares and XYZ Films.  The film is a presentation of Sony Pictures Classics.
