When Niels (Neeson) and his wife (Laura Dern) loses their son to an overdose, Niels sends the family father on an act of wild revenge as he wants to find the shot callers behind the drug operation that has cost his son life.
It may sound familiar if you have seen a movie with Liam Neeson within the last 10 years, but contrary to Taken, ‘Cold Pursuit’ seems to be stuffed with humor. At least, it dominates the new trailer that sends one`s mind to the Coen brothers’ snow-white and Fargo.
‘Cold Pursuit’ is a remake of a popular Norwegian film called “Kraftidioten” (In Order of Disappearance) from 2014, written by the Dane Kim Fupz Aakeson. Furthermore, it is the same director, Hans Petter Moland, who has been allowed to direct the American version as well.
