If you live in the Los Angeles area and are looking forward to director Gareth Evans’ action sequel The Raid 2, you might want to pay attention. We’ve been provided with tickets for an advance screening of the film in Los Angeles to give away to a few lucky readers, which includes a post-movie Q&A with Evans. The film picks up directly after the events of the first pic, as rookie cop Rama (Iko Uwais) must go undercover in the criminal underworld to protect his wife and infant son after his raid of a gangster-ridden high-rise has attracted the attention of some very bad and very powerful people. Matt was effusive in his praise of the film after he saw it at Sundance, so if you liked Evans’ first pic and would enjoy seeing that type of martial arts prowess on an epic scale, The Raid 2 is unlikely to disappoint.
Hit the jump to find out how you can enter to win tickets for the screening on March 13th, but please be advised that this contest is only open to people that live in the Los Angeles area. The Raid 2 opens in theaters on March 28th.
In order to win seats for the screening and Q&A, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and include THE RAID 2 Screening Giveaway in the headline. You also need to have “liked” Collider on Facebook. Winners will receive 2 tickets for the screening (you and a guest).
This giveaway will be open until March 10th at noon PST. Also, only one entry per person. Once the giveaway ends, we’ll look over the entries, make sure you’ve liked us on Facebook, and randomly pick out the winners. It never hurts to mention why you think you deserve to win.
The advance screening of The Raid 2 will be held at the Harmony Gold Theatre, 7655 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles 90046 on March 13th at 7pm.
People that win tickets need to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m. If you’re not in your seat by 6:45pm, you run the risk of losing it, which brings me to this point: if you don’t happen to win tickets but want to attend the screening, just show up at the theater. There will be a standby line for folks that will have the opportunity to get into the screening in the event that there are empty seats, which is very likely.
If you have any questions leave a comment below and we’ll be happy to address them.
