STXfilms has released the first trailer for The Foreigner, the action thriller being directed by Casino Royale‘s Martin Campbell and starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan. It certainly feels like a departure for Chan, who has made a fine career of playing good guys with smiles on their faces even when jumping out windows and hanging off ledges. This time Chan plays a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when his teenage daughter is killed in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. He is relentless in the search for the terrorists, and he is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan) whose own past may hold clues to the killers’ identities. David Marconi wrote the script based on Stephen Leather’s novel The Chinaman. The film is set to be released October 13, 2017.
Check out the trailer below.
