The Foreigner (2017, D: Martin Campbell) -- S: Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan




Quote:
The Foreigner is based on the book The Chinaman by Stephen Leather about a humble restaurant owner (Jackie Chan) in London’s Chinatown who is forced to push his moral and physical boundaries to track down the group of rogue Irish terrorists responsible for the death of his beloved daughter after the justice system fails him.

Quote:
Piece Brosnan will play Liam Hennessy, a former IRA member-turned-government official.


Some set stills:








There's no trailer yet, but this promo reel for Jackie's upcoming movies has some footage from the movie. It appears around the 1:00 mark.



Expected to be released September 29th.

So basically this sounds like an Asian/UK version of Death Wish. Haven't seen Jackie in a serious/gritty role in a long time. Probably the most recent was The Shinjuku Incident.

Martin Campbell. Sold. Shoots action movies for adults - without all the ADD camera movements.

I'm so sick of all these rogue Irish terrorist movies.

I'll see this just because Martin Campbell and Brosnan are working together again.

Would be cool if Brosnan was actually playing an older version of the same character he played in "The Long Good Friday."

Maybe we could even find out what actually happened...

Spoiler:

to Bob Hoskins character at the end of that movie.

The first trailer.

Looks pretty good. Although I didn't really like the use of rap music in the trailer.

Interesting to see Chan finally playing (and looking) his age. I figured they'd try and turn him into some kind of former mainland Chinese commie supersoldier in light of Chan's political affiliations over the past decade, so there's some relief that they've at least kept the character's Vietnamese origins from the book.

Damn, they look old and tired in those pix. If I want a geriatric action picture, I'll go see EXPENDABLES 4!

And given all the terrorist acts in England lately coming from a completely different quarter, isn't this kind of, umm, inappropriate?

Yeah I like that we're seeing a dark and violent Jackie Chan for a change.

I didn't realize that Chan's character is supposed to be a Vietnamese immigrant as Brian T mentioned. I watched the trailer again and did notice the Vietnamese passport.

Lots great. Haven't see a Jackie Chan flick in a long time and I love Brosnan and Campbell. I'm in!

Re: The Foreigner (2017, D: Martin Campbell) -- S: Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan

Seems like an interesting project. Maybe not an urgent viewing experience, but definitely one to check out in the future. Brosnan looks cold as ice in this flick -- enjoy seeing him in a more villainous role. It also feels like the first time I've seen Chan playing a much older type of character and family man. Hopefully there will be some clever psychological head games played between Chan and Brosnan to go along with all the hot blooded action.
