Liam Neeson is back in action and on the warpath killing lots of people in the trailer for his new action-thriller Blacklight. All Liam Neeson wants is a normal life, but the danger of unchecked power pushes him to the edge, and then his family disappears. As you might imagine, this pisses him off, and nothing will stop him from bringing the violence and pain.
In the film, “Travis Block (Neeson) lives and fights in the shadows. A freelance government “fixer,” Block is a dangerous man whose assignments have included extracting agents out of deep-cover situations. When Block discovers a shadowy program called Operation Unity is striking down ordinary citizens for reasons known only to Block’s boss, FBI chief Robinson (Aidan Quinn), he enlists the help of a journalist (Emmy Raver-Lampman), but his past and present collide when his daughter and granddaughter are threatened. Now Block needs to rescue the people he loves and expose the truth for a shot at redemption. Nothing and no one is safe when secrets are hidden in BLACKLIGHT.
The film comes from Briarcliff Entertainment and CEO Tom Ortenberg said that Blacklight is “a timely action thriller with a ‘ripped from today’s headlines’ feel to it from start to finish. It is an honor to be working with the incomparable Liam Neeson for the sixth time and to be partnering again with friends Myles Nestel and multi-hyphenate filmmaker Mark Williams.”
Blacklight will be released in theaters on February 11th, 2022.
