Official Trailer for Jackie Chan’s ‘The Foreigner’


The Foreigner is the new, highly anticipated, revenge-thriller, directer by Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale) which sees Jackie playing a humble London restaurant owner Quan, who seeks revenge after losing his daughter (played by Katie Leung) in a bombing carried out by rogue Irish terrorists.

The film looks to have a more serious tone compared to Jackie’s previous films and should allow him to have a more emotional and intense acting role. The Foreigner looks to be a cross between Taken and Man on Fire.
