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.
