The Foreigner (2017): Chan Takes on Brosnan & Terrorism
Jackie Chan proves that a father’s love for his family is unmeasurable in his latest movie.
For many years, Jackin Chan hasn’t allowed his age to get in the way of producing an action-packed movie. Although many of those films have been Chinese based that doesn’t take away from Chan’s ability to give a convincing performance. As for those films in the States, all were playful action with the exception of Rush Hour. Now we stray away from the light-hearted comedy/action and kick it up a notch.
Yesterday, the trailer for Jackie Chan returns with Pierce Brosnan in a new movie ‘The Foreigner’ by way of a trailer that’s full of action and many questions. Martin Campbell—the director who helmed Casino Royale (2006)—is taking those action directing skills to task with this film. The Foreigner’s plot synopsis is based on the book by Stephen Leather,
A humble London businessman Quan (Jackie Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love—his daugter—is taken away from a senseless act that’s likely politically motivated terrorism. In his search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.
The trailer is definitely worth the watch as you’ll get a sense of Martin Campbell’s work with action-thrillers. Here’s it is below:
Charlie Murphy, Katie Leung, Michael McElhatton, Orla Brady, Rory Fleck Byrne, Simon Kunz, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Stephen Hogan, Dermot Crowley, Dermot Crowley, Roberta Taylor, Bern Collaco, Mark Tandy, Lasco Atkins, and Dilyana Bouklieva also are starring in the film.
The Foreigner will be released in theaters on October 13th, 2017
