Director Gareth Evans has released a new image from The Raid 2 showing that the sequel will be no less violent and gory than the original. In the tweet, Evans says that the image is from a shootout that they filmed yesterday. Filming is set to go for over 100 days, and they’ve been rolling cameras since the end of January. If Evans is willing to tweet out this kind of gory image, it’s likely this is just the tip of the blood-soaked iceberg that will make the original pale by comparison.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Raid 2:
Picking up right where the first film ends, The Raid 2 follows Rama (Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.
