Sony Pictures Classics and Stage 6 Films have announced that they will release 'The Raid 2' in the US on March 28, 2014, not long after the film's World Premiere at the upcoming 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Red Band trailer below.

Written and directed by Gareth Evans, 'The Raid 2' picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.

This is the sequel to 2011's thrilling "The Raid: Redemption," which won plaudits from critics and a People's Choice Award in TIFF's Midnight Madness sidebar that year.

'Raid 2' was produced by Ario Sagantoro for Merantau Films, and Aram Tertzakian and Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films.
