A Walk Among the Tombstones

We've seen Liam Neeson get into plenty of action in Taken, the wretched Taken 2, Unknown and Non-Stop earlier this year. Now he's toning it down a bit, but sticking with the thriller genre in A Walk Among the Tombstones. The film is based on Lawrence Block's novel of the same name, featuring Neeson as recurring character Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. In this particular tale, he's helping a heroin trafficker hunt down the men who kidnapped and murdered his wife. It definitely has a more serious tone than Taken and seems to work.

Here's the first trailer for Scott Frank's A Walk Among the Tombstones, originally from Apple:

A Walk Among the Tombstones

A Walk among the Tombstones is written and directed by Scott Frank (The Lookout). Liam Neeson plays Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last. Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of NYC before they kill again. Universal releases the film on September 19th this fall. Well?

    I really hate how Liam Neeson is the go-to guy for every terrible-to-mediocre generic action movie. He's too good for that.

      I want you to listen to me very carefully. I don't know who you are, and frankly I don't care. But I have a very *specific* skill set. I will find you. And I will smear my sweaty balls across your face.

        @trey....dude. that was fucken funny. thanks for the laugh.
    • Seems as if he's thrown in the towel and does movies just for the cash. Reminds me of Val Kilmer. Let us hope Neeson's future projects aren't just for the straight to DVD market

      He is too good for it but he will never be out of work. He must just like doing these movies.

    Interesting trailer. Interesting take on Soundgarden, too.

    Beautiful Black Hole Sun cover. Great trailer. I want to see this.

    As much as I love seeing Neeson play a misunderstood, burdened with personal tragedy kind of character trying to do the right thing while the world is against him, it is just getting boring. But as long as we do watch it I guess he will have the job. The gray was great, more stuff like that would be refreshing.
