The Foreigner Trailer

"Never push a good man too far." A trailer has debuted for the action film The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan in a serious role as a man who goes for revenge when the police do nothing to help him. This is the latest film from Martin Campbell, director of GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness, and Green Lantern; adapted from a book called "The Chinaman". Chan plays a father who tries to get revenge when his daughter is killed in an IRA bombing, leading him right up to the politicians involved. The full cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Charlie Murphy, Katie Leung, Simon Kunz, Rory Fleck Byrne, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Stephen Hogan, and Dermot Crowley. This seems like an quietly intense story of a man who goes to war against everyone when no one else will do anything. Footage looks great, I'm totally in for this.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Martin Campbell's The Foreigner, direct from YouTube:

The IRA took his family. The police looked the other way. Now he must get revenge. "It was important for me to do a role that was more serious, with a lot of emotion," Jackie Chan told USA Today. "To prepare, I imagined what it would be like to be the father dealing with that situation." The Foreigner is directed by New Zealand filmmaker Martin Campbell, of Criminal Law, Defenseless, No Escape, GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro, Vertical Limit, Beyond Borders, Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness, and Green Lantern previously. The screenplay is written by David Marconi; adapted from Stephen Leather's 1992 novel "The Chinaman". STX Entertainment will release The Foreigner in theaters starting October 13th later this fall.

  • Hahahhahahhahaha, what a load of shite.
  • It's always good to see Jackie doing his things, but the story is trite.
    • Why so?
      • Well, I see Blown Away, Bourne, Rambo and a fistful of other revenge movies in this trailer,
        • Bo
 think? The ole 'dead daughter' now I'm gonna get ya story. Alex's question to you is a bit that while watching it I kept thinking, 'jeez, isn't this a bit derivative'? Which of course, it is. Let me add the likes of Taken 1,2, & 3 to your list. But hey, a solid director, it's got Pierce Brosnan, with a bad haircut no less, and Chan who's better doing this kind of silliness when it's silly and funny. That seems to be missing here.

    Could be fun. Terrible choice of song for the trailer though.

    For once I'd like to see a "regular-guy-pushed-too-far" movie starring a regular guy, and not a martial artist/stuntman/action star....
    • shiboleth
      Well, that guy wouldn't last too long, would he? Films like these ones are possible only if they are also delusional. Unfortunately ...
  • shiboleth
    Well, that's a strange mix of director and actors. And Jackie's got too serious this time. He's getting old, obviously...
    Another STX production...I just wish Jackie Chan would make some awesome movie choices before his body gives out.

    Definitely looks entertaining. I like seeing Jackie do his thing without the silliness (which I do like) just once. Does have a slight Taken vibe but hey I liked Taken. Well the first one anyways. The second and third are hamster cage liner. Anyhow I'm interested in checking The Foreigner out.
    • twistys
      What is hamster cage liner?
  • It looks mediocre, but is it onley me who thinks pierce Brosnan always plays a badass dude in a great way? Seen allot of movies the last years with him playing the bad guy, and it's always him who makes the movie just fine and watchable.
