‘The Raid 2’ Set for U.S. Release on March 28

Sony Pictures Classics-distribbed Indonesian sequel to premiere at Sundance

Sony Pictures Classics and Stage 6 Films will release martial-arts sequel “The Raid 2” in the U.S. on March 28, two months after its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

Sony Classics used the same pattern two years ago for the original “The Raid” with a Sundance showing and a U.S. release in March 2012.

Both films star Iko Uwais and were written and directed by Gareth Evans. The film was produced by Ario Sagantoro for Merantau Films, and Aram Tertzakian and Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films.

The Raid 2″ starts where the first film ended, with Uwais’ character going undercover and infiltrating the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.

“The Raid: Redemption,” which had a $1 million budget, grossed $4.5 million in the U.S. with Sony Classics handling as part of a $15 million worldwide cume.
