Original Australian Artwork and Local Trailer Released for 'The Raid'

On February 10, 2012, an original poster created by Madman Entertainment for the upcoming release, The Raid, was released. The film is scheduled to hit Australian cinemas on 22 March 2012. In addition, a local version of the trailer was also created.



Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building's lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission. Director Gareth Evans (Merantau) and rising martial-arts star Iko Uwais reunite in this adrenaline-fueled action film.

The Raid recently screened at Sundance and has generated incredibly positive responses from media overseas - "Incredible...Exhilarating...Viewers will wonder how the amazing battle that just ended could possibly be topped. But it is, again and again." - Robert Koehler, Variety.

    1. I saw your enthusiastic Tweet Russell. Great to hear. I am jealous you got to see it already, but really looking forward to it now. It has come out of nowhere, really.

  4. I'm curious about this as it's set in my hometown, but not sure I can stomach all that violence and mind-numbingly fast cuts! Glad that a film from my country is getting all kinds of buzz though.
