First A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES Trailer, Poster, and Images Feature Liam Neeson Working Outside the Law

     May 29, 2014


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.

    Holy crap… don’t care if it’s Taken redux, that looks incredible.

    Just goes to show a good project never dies.

    This was supposed to have been made ages ago with Joe Carnahan and Harrison Ford. But Ford was at that point in his career where he abjectly refused to make a good movie, so he dropped out and the project folded.

    And I’m a huge Lawrence Block fan so I’m glad to see him get an A-list movie made from one of his books after the disasters of the past.

    looks good

    Looks amazing. Definitely seeing this.

  • Jamesy

    Looks like a follow up to Taken, but a lot darker…I dig it. That title though, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” would be a bad ass title for a Western movie.

  • Redjester

    So it’s ‘Taken’ and ‘Sin City’ mashed together into a single film…


  • Redjester

    In all seriousness, this looks better than it has any right to.

  • Faptain America

    So someone kidnapped Lady Mary, and Matthew Crawley hires Liam Neeson. It’s Taken Abbey series 3!

    • The Flobbit

      I award you no points for that shameful attempt at humor. Leave the room in shame.

      • Faptain America

        Clearly you’re fan enough of Neeson and Downton to get the joke.

    I don’t care what people say, I love Liam Neeson as an action hero. He can make lots of action movies, I’ll watch them. Take all my money, Liam!!!

    Watching the trailer it made me think it’s the new The Equalizer film.

    Looks great, but the trailer gives away too much…

    Wow. This looks fantastic. Loved the Lookout, too. Criminally Underrated Film. Can’t wait for this.
