WIN! Tickets to an exclusive screening of A Walk Among the Tombstones & QA with talent from the film - this Monday in London!

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, August 29, 2014

A Walk Among the Tombstones & QAAre you ready for the return of Matt Scudder and a little stroll through the tombstones? If you read the Establishing Shot you'll no doubt be aware that I have been waiting a long time for A Walk Among the Tombstones.

I enjoyed his first venture onto the big screen when Jeff Bridges played him in the 1986 crime thriller 8 Million Ways to Die. Ever since I heard there was a script kicking around that would bring Scudder back to the screen I have been eagerly awaiting his return - and Scott Frank's A Walk Among the Tombstones does not disappoint. Until the week of it's release I'm not supposed to delve into opinion on it - but it's fair to say that I was sitting on the edge of my chair the whole way through the film and loved it! It was a real visit to the Noir side of town with the cast bringing the characters of author Lawrence Block's dubious underworld to life.

Comparatively speaking I would say it shares much with Jonathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs but rather than focus on the horror film aspects it plays out in the tradition of a classic Film Noir narrative. Don't get me wrong its chilling but without having to be explicit. On an emotional man seeking redemption level it didn't quite work for me but as a hard boiled detective tale I was all over it and Liam Neeson was born for these type of roles. I can't wait for him to collaborate with Scott Frank again and bring another Frank Scudder tale to the big screen if he survives A Walk Among the Tombstones, that is.

A Walk Among the Tombstones is sure to please fans of the crime genre. So we are proud to be able to bring our readers the chance to go along to an exclusive screening of A Walk Among the Tombstones this Monday in Central London AS WELL AS a QA session with talent from the film after the screening. Who'll be there? Well your guess is as good as mine but I'm hoping for Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, Astro and Director Scott Frank.

Formerly a detective with the NYPD, now a recovering alcoholic haunted by regrets, Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson) has a lot to make up for. When a series of kidnappings targeting the city’s worst drug criminals escalates to grisly murder, the circuit’s ruthless leader convinces Scudder to find the culprits and bring them to bloody justice. Working as an unlicensed private detective, Matt sees what the police don’t see and treads where they most fear to. Operating just outside the law to track down the monsters responsible, Scudder stops just short of becoming one himself.

Based on the best-selling book by Lawrence Block, A Walk Among the Tombstones, is released in UK cinemas on 19th September.

A Walk Among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson (Non-Stop, Unknown, Taken, Taken 2, The Dark Knight Rises, The Grey, The A-Team), Dan Stevens (The Fifth Estate, Downton Abbey), Sebastian Roche (Safe House, Fringe, Supernatural), Boyd Holbrook (Out of the Furnace, Behind the Candelabra, The Host, The Big C) and is directed by Scott Frank.
