Universal Pictures has released the first A Walk Among the Tombstones trailer, poster, and images for director Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) dark crime thriller.  The film stars Liam Neeson as an alcoholic ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  Despite a pretty awful-looking wig on Neeson at the beginning of the trailer, this actually looks like a much darker, more interesting film than your standard “above the law” actioner.  Frank has a number of excellent credits as a screenwriter (Minority Report, Out of Sight), and I was a big fan of his previous directorial effort The Lookout, so I’m certainly looking forward to seeing what he’s put together here.  So far so good.

Hit the jump to check out the A Walk Among the Tombstones trailer, poster, and images.  The film also stars David Harbour and Boyd HolbrookA Walk Among the Tombstones opens in theaters on September 19th.

Here’s the official synopsis for A Walk Among the Tombstones:

Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as 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.  Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.
