Welsh born director Gareth Evans, will bring his hit Indonesian action film The Raid, back to Wales for a special event premiere involving 11 simultaneous screenings across the country on Wednesday 16th May.

Already touted as 2012’s best action film and receiving rave reviews from the press, The Raid has wowed audiences across the globe and introduced legions of action fans to the newest martial arts superstar, Iko Uwais.

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums stands an impenetrable apartment block; a safe house for the city’s most dangerous killers and gangsters and 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. When rookie cop Rama is the last man standing, he must fight his way to the top of the building to complete the mission and escape with his life.



The Raid is the winner of the 2011 Midnight Madness People’s Choice Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival, the Audience and Critics’ Choice Awards at the 2012 Jameson Dublin International Film Festival and was a sold out hit at the 2012 Sundance and SXSW Festivals.

The Raid also features an original score by Linkin Parks’ Mike Shinoda and Joe Trapanese (TRON: LEGACY).

The film will receive its red carpet Welsh premiere at the Cardiff, Cineworld on the evening of Wednesday 16th May and simultaneous preview screenings will be held at the following cinemas;
