The Raid teaser trailer

An early teaser trailer for Gareth Evans' The Raid has been unveiled online via MTV and it's a must watch. The Raid is an Indonesian action film about an elite SWAT police squad that raids a drug lord's building, which it takes place entirely in, and it's awesome.

I knew nothing about this film till yeterday when slash films started calling it "best action movies in years". Sony Pictures acquired the film during the Cannes Film Festival after only seeing a few bits of footage.

Sony has also announced that Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda will be creating an "an entirely new musical score for the ultra-intense action picture's" US release. check it out!

Official Plot Synopsis:

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the run-down apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building’s lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the sixth floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission. Starring Indonesian martial arts sensation Iko Uwais.
