The “Liam Neeson Beats People Up” film movement continues with Unknown, the trailer to which has just been released by Warner Bros. After taking on slave traders in Taken and scenery in The A-, Team, Neeson now turns his fists towards identity thieves. January Jones (Mad Men), Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds), Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) and Aidan Quinn (In Dreams) also star in the thriller, helmed by Jaume Collet-Serra ( Orphan). Check out the trailer after the jump.
Liam Neeson vs. Aidan Quinn. For me this is the equivalent of “You Had Me at Hello” or “I’ll Have What She’s Having” or “This is the Start of a Beautiful Friendship.” The man who almost played Lincoln vs. the man who played President Grant in that film no one saw or liked (cough Jonah Hex cough). Mano–a-mano. Face to face. I’m not being facetious when I say this is the fight I always wanted to see on film that I never realized I actually wanted to see. It almost makes me believe divine forces were at work.
Unknown hits theaters February 18, 2011. Click to Yahoo! Movies for HD.
