Sony Classics to Unleash ‘The Raid’ Next Spring

The Raid

There’s a movie out there that’s on a collision course with you, me and everyone we know. It’s called The Raid and it’s from director Gareth Evans, the guy who brought us the excellent martial arts film Merantau. He rocked the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness crowds a few months back and lit the internet on fire with a rockin’ trailer (which I just so happen to have included after the break). It’s been the most anticipated movie on my indefinite calendar since the project was announced.

Now there’s a bit more definition in this journey, as Sony Pictures Classics will now distribute the film in the spring. According to Deadline Jakarta, The Raid may make a pit-stop at Sundance in January, complete with a new soundtrack from Linkin Park, then debut sometime in the spring. After re-watching the trailer again (see below), I’m convinced that spring can’t come soon enough.

Watch the trailer for The Raid:
