Jackie Chan goes full on pissed off Liam Neeson in the trailer for THE FOREIGNER!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Now this looks promising. Jackie Chan is going full on Liam Neeson/Taken in his new movie about a father who loses his daughter in a terrorist attack and is hunting down those responsible.

What I love about the footage so much is that while the tone is more serious than your typical Jackie Chan vehicle you still get his unique brand of action on display. You don't lose the little details that make Jackie Chan so iconic despite him venturing into some darker waters. Plus you gotta love the Man With Special Talents With Nothing To Lose revenge thriller subgenre, which has a storied and quite badass history (I highly suggest tracking down the Alain Delon crime flick No Way Out, aka Tony Arzenta, which is my personal favorite example of the genre).

Check out the trailer below:



Looks good, right? It's also pretty neat that Pierce Brosnan is the mysterious man with the info Chan needs, reteaming him with his GoldenEye director Martin Campbell. This is the kind of B-movie I can really get excited for! What about you?
