Liam Neeson is back on track (literally), and he means business. Find out more about his new off-the-rails action thriller…

Ever since Taken, we’ve all become a little bit obsessed with no-nonsense Liam Neeson. Does anything make us happier than to see him getting angry on the phone? We think not.
Thankfully, the gods of Hollywood have obliged, sending the brilliant new release, The Commuter, our way. In it, Neeson plays Michael MacCauley, a former cop commuting in the New York area. During one of his routine evening journeys, a stranger asks him for an unusual favour and, as you’d imagine, there’s a mystery to solve before the train gets to the last stop – with lots of people’s lives in the balance. (And yes, we can confirm that animated phone conversations do feature.)
Behind the camera is director Jaume Collet-Serra, the mind behind thrillers and horror flicks including The Shallows, House Of Wax and Orphan. He and Neeson make quite the pair, with Collet-Serra having already directed the actor in three thrillers: Unknown, Run All Night and Non-Stop. Elizabeth McGovern of Downton Abbey stars as MacCauley’s wife, alongside The Conjuring couple Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park). Now, that’s a cast we wouldn’t mind taking a long train ride with…
So why wait? Hop on now and see where the journey takes you!
