Pierce Brosnan played James Bond from 1994 to 2005, so clearly he knows his way around action fare. Yet his latest attempts at trying to position himself as a Liam Neeson-esque aging action star haven’t been working out. You probably already forgot about last year’s “The November Man,” and this coming summer he’s got the pretty terrible looking “No Escape” with Owen Wilson, but first is “Survivor” which I didn’t even know existed, and a new trailer has arrived.
James McTeigue (“V For Vendetta,” “Ninja Assassin“) directs this film about a Foreign Service Officer who is targeted by a ruthless assassin while trying to clear his name after being framed for a terrorist bombing and to stop the real bad guys’ actual plan. That sounds exhausting. Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster also feature in this movie that has no shortage of electronic gadgets and actors looking aghast.
“Survivor” arrives in theaters and on demand on May 29th.
