The acclaimed non-stop action film ‘The Raid: Redemption‘ will get a shiny exclusive Blu-ray SteelBook in the UK.
Director Gareth Evans’ film has already won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Audience Award and Dublin Film Critics Award for Best Film at the Dublin International Film Festival, and the Silver Scream Award at the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival.
From the official film synopsis:
Deep in the heart of one of Jakarta’s most deprived slums stands an impenetrable high-rise apartment block. To most, it is 30 floors of Hell to be avoided at all costs and is considered a no-go area by even the bravest and most experienced police officers.
In a desperate bid to flush these violent criminals and their leader from their haven once and for all, an elite SWAT team is tasked with infiltrating the building and raiding the apartments floor by floor, taking out anyone who stands in their way. Once inside, it soon becomes terrifyingly apparent that the real problem at hand is surviving long enough to be able to get out again.
The artwork for the limited edition SteelBook is based on designs by award-winning comic book artist Mark Simpson, a.k.a. Jock. The anime-style design is quite nice on this one. Click the image below to enlarge:
