‘Unknown’ Trailer Will Steal Your Identity

If someone made a movie that combined The Fugitive, The Game, and Taken, would that pique your interest? Of course it would. And, of course it will.

The new trailer for Unknown (which apparently isn’t called Unknown White Male anymore) shows a very confused, very pissed off, very revenge-fueled Liam Neeson as a man whose identity seems to have been stolen. The world that opens up is one of deception and conspiracy, and the coma he was in probably doesn’t add much to his credibility.

The bottom line: this trailer is intense and promises a complex film with plenty of asses being kicked.

Where I was interested before, I’m now on the edge of my seat for the beginning of 2011.

And check out that cast. Neeson is joined by January Jones, Frank Langella, Diane Kruger, and Aidan Quinn.

On a side note, that’s a perfect release time that evokes Taken and its success. From the look of the trailer, Unknown seems like it might be the same film with a dozen more layers added to the plot.

What do you think?
