Liam Neeson Faces an Explosive Dilemma in the ‘Retribution’ Trailer


Pop quiz, hot shot: In the first full trailer for the film “Retribution,” Liam Neeson finds himself facing a dangerous situation when he discovers a bomb in his vehicle. Set to hit theaters on August 25, this Lionsgate release, directed by Nimród Antal, is a remake of the 2015 Spanish-language thriller with the same name.

The trailer introduces us to the protagonist, Matt Turner (played by Neeson), who is driving with his kids when he receives a call from an unknown individual. The caller reveals that there is a bomb planted in the car and warns Matt that it will detonate if anyone tries to exit the vehicle. This revelation sets off a high-speed chase throughout the city as Matt tries to figure out how to defuse the bomb and protect his family.

In the trailer, Neeson calmly relays the situation to his loved ones, stating, “Honey, something’s happened. There’s a man who has put a bomb in the car. Under our seats, there are pressure triggers.

We can’t get out. The car will explode.” However, as the tension escalates, we see Neeson’s character lose his composure when the caller claims to be in control. He vehemently responds, “No, you’re not! You hurt my daughter, you son of a bitch. I will kill you.”

Directed by Nimród Antal and written by Chris Salmanpour and Andrew Baldwin, “Retribution” evokes memories of the 1994 hit movie “Speed,” which also involved a high-stakes situation with a bomb, this time on a bus. The film features an ensemble cast, including Matthew Modine, Noma Dumezweni, Jack Champion, Lilly Aspell, and Embeth Davidtz. The project is produced by Andrew Rona, Alex Heineman, Jaume Collet-Serra, and Juan Sola.
