[Trailer] Non-Stop Meets The Girl On The Train in The Commuter

- -

January and B movies have been a natural pairing for years at the box office and that trend looks to continue with The Commuter starring Liam Neeson. An action thriller in the vein of Neeson’s recent film Non-Stop crossed with Girl On The Train meets Source Code, The Commuter follows Neeson as the eponymous commuter who gets caught in a dangerous game of morality instituted by Vera Farmiga.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra ( The Shallows), The Commuter sees him reunite with Neeson after previously worked together on Non-Stop and Run All Night. To their credit, their previous collaborations have been box office successes with Non-Stop grossing 222 million worldwide against a 50 million-dollar budget and Run All Night clocking in at 72 million worldwide against a 50 million dollar budget which is to say that audiences clearly have an appetite for this type of film. To meet the demand, it seems that the duo has adhered to the same basic blueprint as their previous efforts; this time taking note of release date timing hoping to get to viewers against weaker box office competition.

The Commuter will mark the penultimate turn in the action genre for Neeson who stated his intentions to retire from the physically demanding roles in favor of more traditional dramatic roles. Is it likely to win any awards for Neeson or the studio? No, but you can be sure all parties involved will be laughing their way to the bank.
