Although The Raid might be getting an American remake, we've still got plenty to look forward to in the original Indonesian version of the franchise.

Gareth Evans has just debuted a new poster for the sequel of arguably one of the best action movies of recent years. Check out the Australian poster for The Raid 2: Berendal below:

As I said above, last week we heard the news that The Raid was the latest foreign movie property to get the US makeover. What's more, it seems the Hemsworth brothers (three of them to be precise) were being eyed up for the movie.

Personally, I'm not sure if Hollywood can pull of the same style as the Indonesian original, especially considering The Raid primarily used stunt actors and not the 'professional' box office bait the Hollywood remake will invariable use.
