Liam Neeson is at it again, killin’ those bad guys in a variety of dimly lit locales. You’d be forgiven for mistaking the debut Run All Night images for photos from one of the many other movies in which Liam Neeson kicks ass indiscriminately, but the premise offers a slight twist to the roles for which he’s now become known. The entire movie takes place over the course of 24 hours, as Neeson plays a Mob hitman nicknamed “The Gravedigger” who turns protector when his estranged son (Joel Kinnaman) witnesses a hit and becomes a target of The Family. The thriller marks Neeson’s third film with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra, and promises a showdown between Neeson and Ed Harris’ Mob boss. The first trailer arrives this week, so check back soon for our first look at footage.
In the meantime, take a look at the first Run All Night images after the jump. The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Common, Holt McCallany, and Beau Knapp. Run All Night opens in theaters on February 6th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Run All Night:
Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass.
But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself…at the wrong end of a gun. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right.
