Cold Pursuit trailer: Liam Neeson and Laura Dern deliver a chilly revenge

Back in 2014 Norwegian black comedy In Order of Disappearance saw Stellan Skarsgard star as a man driven over the edge in pursuit of revenge. Cold Pursuit is a Hollywood remake of the film, with Liam Neeson taking over Skarsgard's role. As the synopsis below seems to indicate, it requires him to use a very special set of skills, which sounds quite familiar. Take a look at the trailer for Cold Pursuit above now to see more.

Quiet family man and hard-working snowplow driver Nels is the lifeblood of a glitzy resort town in the Rocky Mountains because he is the one who keeps the winter roads clear. He and his wife live in a comfortable cabin away from the tourists. The town has just awarded him “Citizen of the Year.” But Nels has to leave his quiet mountain life when his son is murdered by a powerful drug lord. As a man who has nothing to lose he is stoked by a drive for vengeance.

This unlikely hero uses his hunting skills and transforms from an ordinary man into a skilled killer as he sets out to dismantle the cartel. Nels’ actions ignite a turf war between a manically unpredictable gangster known as Viking and a Native American gang boss. Justice is served in one final spectacular confrontation that will leave (almost) no one unscathed.

Hans Petter Moland brings his Swedish film into English, with the supporting cast featuring Laura Dern, Emmy Rossum, Tom Bateman, William Forsythe and Domenick Lombardozzi.

Cold Pursuit opens in UK cinemas on February 22nd 2019.
