Action-Packed ‘The Raid 2’ Dated For Home Video

Director Gareth Huw Evans reunites with star Iko Uwais for the sequel to their cult hit with the acclaimed, action-packed martial arts epic The Raid 2 (read our review), available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD July 8 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen, Rama (Uwais) thought he could return to his normal life. Instead, his success puts himself and his family in danger, forcing him to go undercover to bring down a nefarious and powerful criminal by befriending his son.

The Raid 2 also stars Yayan Ruhain, Arifin Putra, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusadewo, Julie Estelle, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamur.

The Blu-ray and DVD will include an English dub of the film as well as the original language version (Indonesian). The Blu-ray will also come loaded with extra content, allowing fans to immerse themselves in the making of the film, including more than 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes featurettes, as well as a deleted scene and filmmaker commentary. Gareth Huw Evans’ process of transitioning the story from the first film to the sequel is explored in the “The Next Chapter: Shooting a Sequel” featurette. In the “Cinefamily Foundation Q&A” featurette, Gareth Huw Evans, Iko Uwais and Joe Trapanese discuss the making the film. Exclusive to the Blu-ray is the “Gang War” deleted scene and two additional featurettes. Fans can take an inside look at the elaborate fight choreography in “Violent Ballet: Behind the Choreography,” and “Ready for a Fight: On Location” features the cast and crew on the challenges of filming in Indonesia.

    YES! This’ll mean I can do a double-feature-type-deal at home. -Curtains (1983) comes out the same day!!

  • ThunderDragoon

    I finally get to watch this. Woohoo!

  • Freaking loved it and already pre-ordered it. However, I was expecting more extras to be honest and a potential director’s cut. It seems Evans has cut quite a few character moments!

      doomas10, i’m surprised this isn’t a director’s cut/unrated cut too.

      • Fingers crossed for potential future releases!
