“Enjoy the violence,” Gareth Evans recently told a Los Angeles audience prior to a screening of "The Raid 2," and it seems his fans certainly are. While the relentless "The Raid" put Evans on the map, "The Raid 2" looks to obliterate it, with a supersized, two hour plus serving of madness and mayhem and maiming that won't be finished after this flick. Indeed, Evans has long talked about the movies being part of a trilogy, but he's going to take a breather before returning for one last punch-fest with "The Raid 3."

The Raid 2

“Enjoy the violence,” Gareth Evans recently told a Los Angeles audience prior to a screening of "The Raid 2," and it seems his fans certainly are. While the relentless "The Raid" put Evans on the map, "The Raid 2" looks to obliterate it, with a supersized, two hour plus serving of madness and mayhem and maiming that won't be finished after this flick. Indeed, Evans has long talked about the movies being part of a trilogy, but he's going to take a breather before returning for one last punch-fest with "The Raid 3."

“They’re going to have to wait a while. I don’t want to do it for three years, maybe. I do have a concept in mind,” Evans revealed to Variety. “If this one is two hours after ‘The Raid’ finished, ‘Raid 3′ starts three hours before ‘The Raid 2′ finishes. So you go back in time a little and then branch off for a different story.”

So, what will do he in the interim? He wants to head to Hollywood or England, and make one of the projects he has development, which includes the heist flick "Breaking The Bank" over at Universal.

But until that is sorted, "The Raid 2" is coming on March 28th. A 10-minute behind-the-scenes featurette is below along with a new poster.
