Note: Please be advised that the trailer included with this news announcement is not appropriate to view at work.
The first one was stunning in its ferocity and fight sequences, once the action picked up. I'd expect this one to continue in the same tradition! The trailer looks amazing and agree, cannot wait for this to come out on Blu-ray soon enough!
