Heading onto hundreds of screens in the UK – with an IMAX release too is Honest Thief, and here’s the trailer for the new Liam Neeson-headlined film.

One of the movies jumping in to fill the gaps left behind by the many big studio blockbusters that have fled into 2021 is the latest action thriller starring Liam Neeson.

It goes by the name of Honest Thief, and Neeson stars alongside Kate Walsh, Jai Courtney and Robert Patrick in the movie. It’s written and directed by Ozark co-creator Mark Williams, and the film will be getting a wide UK cinema release on October 23rd. Furthermore, it’s been announced too that the movie will be heading to IMAX screens around the country.

Here’s a trailer to give you a taste as to what’s in store…

And for the minute, we’ll leave you with the official synopsis for the movie…

Thrills and excitement are up for grabs in HONEST THIEF which tells the action-packed story of a career bank robber keen to turn himself in for the sake of love, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents.

Tom (Liam Neeson, Taken) is a lot of things, but two in particular: an infamous thief and a newfound romantic. His feelings for his new flame Annie (Kate Walsh, Greys Anatomy) have inspired him to right his past wrongs and leave behind his life of crime. Although he has always worked with integrity and precision, exclusively carrying out non-violent bank jobs, he does not want his relationship with Annie to be built upon lies. He resolves to turn himself in to the FBI and forfeit the money he has stolen in return for a plea deal and a clean slate. When he calls the Boston FBI field office to confess and set a meeting, Agents Baker (Robert Patrick, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Meyers (Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice) laugh it off as a prank.

They send their subordinates, Agents Nivens (Jai Courtney, Suicide Squad) and Hall (Anthony Ramos, Trolls World Tour), instead. The two younger agents are shocked to discover that Tom is the real deal and see Tom’s stolen money as their golden ticket to a better life. And so begins a cat-and-mouse game where good and bad become tangled but love always rings true.
