The first trailer for the upcoming action-thriller “The Foreigner” was released Monday.
The film stars former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan and legendary Chinese actor Jackie Chan, the latter of whom racks up a massive body count in the action-packed trailer.
The plot of “The Foreigner,” according to IMDB, is, “The IRA took his family. The police looked the other way. Now he must get revenge.”
IMDB also states that the movie is based on the novel, “The Chinaman.”
The trailer sets up Chan as a desperate and lethal man hellbent on killing every single person responsible for the death of his young daughter. It has very much the same feel as the Denzel Washington movie “Man on Fire.”
Chan’s daughter in the movie is played by former Harry Potter star Katie Leung, who played the character of Cho Chang in several of the highly successful films. However, it’s safe to say this will be a large change of pace from the world of Harry Potter.
The film is currently scheduled to be released October 13.
