Neeson is joined in the film by Dan Stevens, Boyd Holbrook, David Harbour, Mark Consuelos, and Astro. ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ hits cinemas on September 18th.

An unlicensed private detective, Matt gets help from his former colleague and a homeless 17 year-old artist, TJ (Astro.) Operating just outside the law to track down the monsters responsible, Scudder stops just short of becoming one himself.
