In case you need more of Liam Neeson saving the day, he has a new action thriller out in April with Ed Harris that will sure catch your attention. Run All Night pits Neeson against Ed Harris, friends who become enemies when Neeson’s son is involved in the murder of Harris’ son. Harris is bent on revenge, and Neeson is once again on a mission to save his offspring, played by Joel Kinnaman. Genesis Rodriguez, Common, and Vincent D’Onofrio also star in the movie, which seems to have a bit of a futuristic/sci-fi edge to it. (What is it that Common is wearing?)
Watch the new trailer and read the official synopsis of the film below:
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes the action thriller “Run All Night,” starring Oscar nominee Liam Neeson (“Schindler’s List,” “Non-Stop”), Joel Kinnaman (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), Vincent D’Onofrio (“The Judge”), and Oscar nominee Ed Harris (“Pollock,” “The Hours”), under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (“Non-Stop”).
Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass.
But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself…at the wrong end of a gun. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right.
“Run All Night” stars Neeson, Kinnaman, D’Onofrio, Bruce McGill (“Ride Along”), Genesis Rodriguez (“Identity Thief”), Boyd Holbrook (HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”), Holt McCallany (“Gangster Squad”), with Common (“Now You See Me”) and Harris.

The film is produced by Roy Lee (“The Departed”), Brooklyn Weaver (executive producer, “Out of the Furnace”), and Michael Tadross (“Gangster Squad,” “Sherlock Holmes”), with John Powers Middleton (TV’s “Bates Motel”) serving as executive producer.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Martin Ruhe (“The American”), production designer Sharon Seymour (“Argo”), editor Dirk Westervelt (“Journey to the Center of the Earth”), and costume designer Catherine Marie Thomas (“The Heat”).
