The domestic trailer for Jose Padilha’s Elite Squad: The Enemy Within is here and can be watched using the player below. Sequel to the 2007 film The Elite Squad, the movie is the all-time largest box office ticket seller and highest-grossing film in Brazil. It has been selected as the Brazilian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards.
In the film, opening in North America on November 11, the sprawling favelas that surround Rio de Janeiro are some of the most dangerous places in the world… and it’s Captain Nascimento’s job to take down the gangs that run them. Although his methods are violent, he’s very good at his job. When he’s promoted to a powerful government position, he thinks he’ll finally be able to finish the job – but instead finds out that he’s only made things easier for the dirty cops and corrupt politicians that are truly running the show.
