Lionsgate Studio is sharing the trailer for the new action thriller Retribution, starring Liam Neeson. The film, written by Christopher Salmanpour and directed by Nimród Antal, is a remake of the 2015 Spanish film El Desconocido, and also stars Noma Dumezweni, Matthew Modine, Lilly Aspell, Jack Champion, and Embeth Davidtz.
The film follows Matt Turner (Neeson), a father of two who receives instructions from a mysterious caller who has rigged his car with bombs. The trailer shows Matt attempt to track down the caller – after he himself is accused of being the bomber. According to an official film synopsis, “When a mysterious caller puts a bomb under his car seat, Matt Turner begins a high-speed chase across the city to complete a specific series of tasks. With his kids trapped in the back seat and a bomb that will explode if they get out of the car, a normal commute becomes a twisted game of life or death as Matt follows the stranger’s increasingly dangerous instructions in a race against time to save his family.”
Retribution opens in theaters August 25; take a look at the trailer – here.
