The junket for Cold Pursuit resulted in a watershed moment for its star. Liam Neeson went on the record with a story of race-motivated potential violence in the aftermath of learning about a friend’s rape. The interview went viral, and the movie Neeson was promoting at the time came second to the dialogue occurring in the wake of Neeson’s confession.
What is the Cold Pursuit release date?
Cold Pursuit is out in UK cinemas on February 22, 2019.
But in America, the movie has already had its debut, and it was not a good one.
Debuting on February 8, Cold Pursuit is officially the worst opening for a Liam Neeson action movie in nearly 30 years.
There are still more European countries awaiting Cold Pursuit like France and Germany.
What is the plot of Cold Pursuit?
Cold Pursuit’s official synopsis reads: “Nels Coxman’s quiet life as a snowplough driver comes crashing down when his beloved son dies under mysterious circumstances.
“His search for the truth soon becomes a quest for revenge against a psychotic drug lord named Viking and his sleazy henchmen.
“Transformed from upstanding citizen to coldblooded vigilante, Coxman unwittingly sets off a chain of events that includes a kidnapping, a series of deadly misunderstandings and a turf war between Viking and a rival boss.”
Cold Pursuit is based on the 2014 Norwegian movie In Order of Disappearance.
