Final Trailer For The Commuter Speeds Off The Tracks

The final trailer for Liam Neeson's The Commuter is a glorious, off-rails train wreck—and we mean that as a compliment. 

The latest PG-13 action-thriller from the Schindler's List star is finally showing its true colors, with this trailer delivering on the goods in the way the previous two, more restrained trailers haven't. 

This one still runs through the plot—someone on this train doesn't belong, got it. $100,000, got it. Kill somebody or your family dies, okay. The difference is, this trailer breathlessly speeds through that opening plot setup to get to all the stuff we really want to see.

Hostages! Close-quarters knife and gun fights! 65-year-old Liam Neeson rolling around on the train tracks, at imminent risk of being squashed by what appears to be a train flying through the air! "I'm done playing games," snarls Neeson, with all the fury of an unassuming insurance salesman just trying to get home from work with his back against the wall.

The Commuter is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously directed Neeson in the action-thrillers Unknown, Non-Stop, and Run All Night. In addition to Neeson in the lead, it stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Jonathan Banks, Sam Neill, and Shazad Latif. All told, it looks like it has more than everything it needs to be another jewel in the "Old Man Action" era of Liam Neeson's distinguished career.

The Commuter arrives in theaters on January 12, 2018. Check out the subway-inspired poster (and astoundingly punny tagline) for the movie down below.
