The Foreigner (2017) Chan,Brosnan

Post by saltysam »

Trailer for this Jackie Chan/Pierce Brosnan movie is out......it actually looks very promising, something i haven't said about a Jackie movie in a long time.

Saw the trailer earlier today.

I hope it's a rare return to form for Jackie (albeit in a more serious mode).

It does look good - reminded me of Crime Story a little bit.

I watched Foreigner the other day. I thought it was fantastic. I wish Jackie Chen would do more movies for the western audiences nowadays. He's still got it!

Good buy, especially since the UK has been shafted.

Unusually for a Universal title this is Region A locked . It's coming out in Germany next month but doubt there will be english subs for the scenes at Chan's restaurant with his member of staff.

Probably because of the staggered multi-platform distribution.
Also, I think Universal are only the US distributor, and didn't have a say in the matter.

Probably not. I'll keep an eye out for the US release to go down in price.
I just watched it a couple of weeks back, so no rush to see it again.

I think the opening took about 1min 40 secs from start to finish while it scrolled through the various companies involved in this one. Many fingers in pies here :)
