Liam Neeson Ready to RUN ALL NIGHT in New Trailer for Action Thriller

Liam Neeson Ed Harris

If you thought Taken 3 would be the end of Liam Neeson‘s run as an action star, you thought wrong.

Run All Night, his third collaboration with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra–who may or may not finally make the live action version of Akira–is his new entry in the genre.

The two previous ones were easy entertainment popcorn flicks you throw on when you just want to see an older Irish gentlemen beat/shoot up some punks, This time though, we find Neeson as a washed out former mobster who has 24 hours to save his son from the mob boss he once considered a best friend, while being hunted by the police himself.

The pic is set for an April 17, 2015 release, co-starring Joel Kinnaman, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ed Harris, Bruce McGill, Genesis Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, Holt McCallany and Common. If you check out the latest film in the Taken series this weekend, you’re likely to see the following trailer in front of it.

Liam Neeson is The Man. Paycheck Neeson.

Nice touch with the gun. A hitman of his age would have grown up using a revolver and he remains sentimental over it….Maybe something new and not the same action stuff?

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.
