Frank Grillo Revives ‘The Raid’ Remake With Joe Carnahan

Watch a 5-Minute Samurai Film from Gareth Evans
There’s something oddly charming about small-scale, off-the-cuff vanity projects from major filmmakers. Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing didn’t radically reimagine the Bard’s original text, but the context of production lent the film an immediately likable vibe. As le…

'The Raid' Remake Eyes 'Expendables 3' Helmer Patrick Hughes

'The Raid 2' Trailer: The First Bloody Footage
Gareth Evans' first 'The Raid 2' trailer gives us more than a little perspective on his highly anticipated sequel to his martial-arts film success. As our leading man, Rama (played by Iko Uwais), prepares to infiltrate a crime syndicate, he's already showing us a little of what&a…
‘The Raid 2′ Details Emerge: When Does It Take Place?
