News About "The Commuter"

In the trailer for The Commuter, Liam Neeson's character is approached by a stranger (Vera Farming) while he is riding the train to work. Using her pretty face as a way to start a conversation, the woman asks the man, "What kind of person are you?" Using phycology, she baits the businessman by offering him money -- and then blackmails him into doing her bidding. Her question is an interesting one. Why does he entertain her proposal? What would you be willing to do for money? Why does she gain power over him? What would you do if she approached you? What kind of person are you?
