Jackie Chan is 63-years-old, but this trailer for director Martin Campbell’s The Foreigner is proof that he can still kick a whole bunch of ass. The movie sort of looks like a spin on Taken, with Chan as a businessman whose daughter is killed in a terrorist attack, but instead of immediately getting revenge on the people behind the bombing, he quietly mourns and repeatedly asks a British government official played by Pierce Brosnan for help identifying the attackers. Unfortunately, Brosnan seems to have been in on it, and Chan goes on a full-on rampage once he puts that together. The trailer doesn’t specifically show Chan beating the snot out of Brosnan, but it definitely won’t be a fair fight whenever it goes down.

The Foreigner is based on Stephen Leather’s novel The Chinaman (changing the name seems like it was a good idea), and it will be in theaters on October 13.
