Director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop) makes their return for one of next year’s most anticipated movie releases with The Commuter, with three new images released this week teasing the film, and whilst they don’t give too much away about what we should expect from the flick when it hits the big screen, the pictures should serve to stoke the fires of excitement for big fans of the two leading stars. You can check them out below:
As seen in the pictures, Liam Neeson and Vera Farmiga lead the story, with Patrick Wilson and Sam Neill also starring in the motion picture. Neeson takes on the role of insurance salesman Michael, who’s enjoying his daily commute home but quickly becomes embroiled in one of the strangest journeys of his life.
Approached by a mysterious stranger, he’s tasked with uncovering the identity of a hidden passenger on the train before it reaches its last stop, and it soon becomes clear that if he doesn’t find out who’s behind the criminal conspiracy on board the train, the lives of everybody could be taken.
You can see the first trailer for the film below:
Produced by Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman, The Commuter is based on a screenplay by Byron Willinger, Philip de Blasi and Ryan Engle. Filming started on July 25, 2016 at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, before moving to New York City and having various scenes involving Neeson and co-star Elizabeth McGovern in Surrey.
Though it was originally scheduled to hit movie theatres on October 20 of this year, it was pushed back by a number of months and is now predicted to quickly become one of the biggest successes of 2018. We can’t wait to see how it does.
The Commuter hits cinemas across the UK on January 19, 2018, a week after its release of January 12 in the United States.
