“The Raid’s” Ass Kicking First Teaser is a TFI Perfect 10
On the heals of a sensational world premier at TIFF last weekend, “Raid” producers have followed up with this jaw-dropping red band teaser. Setting and premise be damned, all this crazy couple of minutes offers is one mind-blowing kung-fu set piece after another, with a score from Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park that keeps pace. Sony Pictures picked “The Raid” up for domestic distribution, so stay tuned… more to come.
“The Raid,” an Indonesian film, is about an elite SWAT police squad that raids a drug lord’s building in the projects. In the tradition of rock stars turned film score composers, a la Trent Reznor, Sony reports that Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Joe Trapanese will compose a totally new, original score for the film’s US release.
