A funny thing happened on the way to Liam Neeson’s latest blockbuster smash. Let’s all just live inside the trailer for “A Walk Among the Tombstones” for a moment, shall we?
Neeson plays a former cop turned private investigator tasked with finding his client’s wife’s murderer and, we assume,
punching him a ton bringing him to justice. And, of course, he’s a haunted soul himself. All this to the strains of a creepy cover of “Black Hole Sun.”
We can’t really say enough about the peek at this latest outing, which not only includes Neeson’s signature scowl, but also him showcasing one of those particular skills of his. This time, he punches through a plate glass window and keeps going until he hits the guy in the face. Slow clap, everyone. Peak Neeson.
Something tells us that this is not the same Liam Neeson who once counseled, “We need Kate, we need Leo, and we need them now.”
The trailer is available in HD on Apple Trailers.
“A Walk Among the Tombstones,” based on the novel series by Lawrence Block, is due out in September.
