Boy this is…this is interesting. Liam Neeson has mentioned moving on from the older-dude badass thrillers his career has been associated with over the last few years (even though some have been really awesome), but he’s got one more coming out early next year. This time around he’s a snowplow driver tearing his way through a drug cartel in search of revenge for the death of his son.
This is actually a remake of a Norwegian film, In Order of Disappearance, that released back in 2014. It may sound ridiculous, but the trailer has me wanting to see just how ridiculous it gets. Plus, it’s always worth watching Laura Dern in just about anything:
COLD PURSUIT, an action thriller infused with irreverent humor, stars Liam Neeson as Nels Coxman, a family man whose quiet life with his wife (Laura Dern) is upended following the mysterious death of their son. Nels’ search for justice turns into a vengeful hunt for Viking (Tom Bateman), a drug lord he believes is connected to the death. As one by one each of Viking’s associates “disappear,” Nels goes from upstanding citizen to ice-cold vigilante, letting nothing – and no one – get in his way.
Cold Pursuit hits theaters on February 8, 2019.
