Liam Neeson and Joel Kinnaman star in the first Run All Night trailer
With the Taken franchise presumably coming to an end this weekend, Liam Neeson is going to have to jump start a new franchise if he wants to keep up his action guy persona. I don’t know if his latest, RUN ALL NIGHT, is franchise material, but it looks like it’s right in the same wheelhouse as TAKEN, NON-STOP or A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES. I like Liam Neeson in these action roles and I think he pulls them off pretty well, but it’d be nice to see him in a quality drama again. Check out the trailer below and see if you want to run all night with Neeson.
The film follows an experienced mob hitman who’s son witnesses a murder. When the mob boss decides the son needs to be killed, the hitman and his son go on the run. Does that sound like something you’ve seen before? ROAD TO PERDITION was the first thing that came to mind, but after watching the trailer, I don’t think anyone is going to confuse this with Sam Mendes’s amazing film. RUN ALL NIGHT stars Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, Vincent D’Onofrio and Common. The Jaume Collet-Serra directed film hits theaters on April 17th.
