The first trailer for Netflix’s action movie The Ice Road has landed, showing off Liam Neeson and Laurence Fishburne as ice road truckers on a perilous journey.
A diamond mine has collapsed in northern Canada, and Neeson and Fishburne take up the call to deliver an essential piece of equipment to rescue them. The only thing is they have to cross a slippery, scary 300-mile ice road to get there, and they only have 30 hours. At the same time, their mission is being sabotaged. None of it’s good, but if the Taken franchise has taught us anything, it’s to never bet against a man with a particular set of skills, whether those skills are murdering people to save your daughter or driving a truck across ice.
The Ice Road is scheduled for release on Netflix on June 25. It’s written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, who is no stranger to action movies. He wrote Die Hard: With A Vengeance and Armageddon, while he directed 2004’s The Punisher.
The film also features Benjamin Walker, Amber Midthunder, and Marcus Thomas.
The Ice Road’s story is fictional, but ice roads are real. Known for being dangerous, ice roads inspired the History Channel’s reality TV show, Ice Road Truckers, which ran for eleven seasons until it ended in 2017.
There is also a ice road trucking game called SnowRunner, and it just came to Xbox Game Pass so you can check it out with your subscription.
In other Netflix news, the company has announced that Jenna Ortega (Scream, The Fallout) will star in the titular role for its upcoming Tim Burton-directed Wednesday Addams series.
