After the news that Liam Neeson is to retire from the action genre, the trailer for one of his final foray in the arena, The Commuter, has been released.
From the director of The Shallows, Jaume Collet-Serra, the action thriller see’s Neeson doing the same old routine, the same routine he has been doing for the past 10 years. However, this time he is faced with a tough decision after Vera Farmiga crosses his path on his normal commute into work. Faced with bundle cash on offer, he is asked to do one little thing! Something that isn’t given away in the trailer but from the look on his face, it can’t be good.
The Commuter has a cast of Neeson, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern and also see’s The Conjuring’s Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reuniting in the thriller.
The film is set for a January 12th 2018 release in the US.
