First Trailer: Martin Campbell’s “The Foreigner”

STX Entertainment have premiered the first trailer and poster for “The Mask of Zorro” and “Casino Royale” director Martin Campbell’s new action thriller “The Foreigner” which opens October 13th.

David Marconi adapted the screenplay from Stephen Leather’s novel “The Chinaman”. Jackie Chan plays a restaurant owner in London’s Chinatown who sets out to track down the rogue IRA radicals responsible for his beloved daughter’s death.

He soon finds himself forced to push his moral and physical boundaries beyond limits to overcome the mysterious foreign power (Pierce Brosnan) standing between him and the truth. The tone of this revenge tale is said to be darker than we’re used to seeing either of these actors in.

The project also marks a re-teaming of Brosnan and Campbell who previously worked together on Brosnan’s iconic debut as James Bond in 1995 “Goldeneye”.
