Taken 3 cut to get a 12A rating in the UK

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox has cut Taken 3 to secure a 12A UK rating, as it did with Taken 2 and A Good Day To Die Hard...

Ah, here we go again. Taken 2 wasn't a great film to start with, but 20th Century Fox ordered cuts to its release to get a 12A certificate in the UK. The result? A major box office hit, one that not that many people seemed to like. And there were thus scenes where Liam Neeson appeared to simply hug people to death, as a clumsy cut chopped out the more 'cutting' bits of violence.

Taken 3 has now been classified by the BBFC, and sadly, 20th Century Fox has done it again.

It's a surprise to nobody that Taken 3 has been given a 12A rating in the UK (it's already been rated as PG-13 in the Us), but on initial submission, the BBFC advised Fox »

Watch: Liam Neeson Delivers a Holiday Beatdown with This Great 'Taken 3' Video

17 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you’re finding yourself not quite feeling the holiday vibe yet, maybe watching Liam Neeson crack some skulls to a punk-rock version of The 12 Days of Christmas while promoting Taken 3 will inspire your Yuletide spirit. Fox released this new promotional video titled The 12 Skills of Christmas to promote Neeson’s third turn as all around badass Bryan Mills. We're not sure how far they'll be able to take this franchise (will Mills battle an alien army next -- cause we'd watch that), but this new clip does a nice job showcasing all the ways Neeson is gonna kick the crap out of men much younger than him in the new film. Here’s the plot breakdown, just in case you couldn’t piece it together from all the mayhem in the video. “Liam...

New 'Taken 3' Trailer: Liam Neeson Shows Off '12 Skills of Christmas'

19 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's a new holiday trailer for the third installment of Taken 3. In it, Liam Neeson shows off '12 Skills of Christmas'. Check it out below.

Directed by Olivier Megaton, Taken 3 brings back ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time (don't count on it), Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.

I'm not a big fan of films like these, but I enjoyed Taken so much that I gave Taken 2 a shot. But as always, the sequels aren't quite as good as the originals, »

Listen To Liam Neeson's Taken 3 Jingle, The Bloodiest And Goriest Christmas Song Ever

21 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

From the looks of it, Taken 3 -- or Tak3n, if we.re really going with that . isn.t falling into the trap of taking itself too seriously. Case in point, Exhibit A: a seasonal jingle in which the 12 days of Christmas are replaced by brutal acts of physical violence Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) unleashes on the idiots who stand in his way. Check it out now: 20th Century Fox dubs this the "12 Skills of Christmas," piggybacking off of the very special set of skills Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) has displayed over the course of two Taken movies. The tag line for this third chapter swears that it.s the last, claiming, "It Ends Here." But really, don.t you think Neeson can be swayed by Sylvester Stallone to bring his act over to the Expendables series for some bone-crunching action-hero mash-up movie? I can tell you two dudes »

'Furious 7', 'Jupiter Ascending', 'Paddington' & Many More in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

22 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't remember the last time I had eight major titles to report on in an MPAA ratings bulletin, but today is that day with the most notable being the PG-13 for Furious 7 and all its "prolonged frenetic sequences of violence, action and mayhem", another PG-13 for Jupiter Ascending and its "suggestive content and partial nudity" and a PG for Paddington, which appears to be taking a small page out of Ted's book with some "rude humor". There's also the PG-13 rating for the much buzzed about (and worthily so) Selma from Ava DuVernay. In addition to that we have A24's Cut Bank starring Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer as well as their action thriller Son of a Gun starring Brenton Thwaites, Alicia Vikander and Ewan McGregor. Warner Bros. has a couple in the mix with Jaume Collet-Serra's reteaming with Liam Neeson after Non-Stop in yet another "aging hitman" movie, »

I've covered Liam Neeson's wily antics before, but now I'm really excited. Just in time for Hanukkah and Christmas malaise, Fox has gifted us with the "12 Skills of Christmas." It's Bryan Mills in full glory breaking necks, hacking phones, stealing guns from cops, reloading guns, exploding buildings and Liam Neeson not giving a fuck about all the laws he breaks in his quest for revenge. Is Neeson our successor to Charles Bronson? Will Tak3n be a great popcorn movie and a fun excuse to see some asses get kicked? Head to the theater on January 9 to find out.Here's the official synopsis:Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered.

Ring In The Festive Season With Taken 3’s 12 Skills Of Christmas

16 December 2014 10:29 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since he donned the leather jacket and grumbled down the phone with that by-now infamous dialogue, we’ve known that Liam Nesson’s Bryan Mills has a particular set of skills. Skills that make him a nightmare to people like you, me, and pretty much any human being who comes within ten feet of him that isn’t a family member.

Now, with Taken 3 looming on the horizon, that set of skills are primed to be put into use once again as Mills is forced to go on the run to protect the life of his daughter, and the latest snippet for the high-octane threequel pulls together a dozen of those moves to ring in the festive season. Because nothing says Christmas like Nesson kicking ass, right?

Bizarre, awkward and just a little bit bonkers, we’re not quite sure if the whole 12 Days of Christmas stint fits the mould of Taken 3, »

New Taken 3 Trailer Gives Us the “12 Skills of Christmas” Liam Neeson Style

16 December 2014 9:03 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first trailer for Taken 3 proves that we, as a people, want to keep punishing Liam Neeson so he can keep kicking ass.  This dude just cannot catch a fucking break.  But, luckily, he has skills (something I'm sure you're aware of) and 12 of those skills have now been highlighted in a new trailer that (somewhat awkwardly) pays homage to the "12 Days of Christmas."  Still, it's refreshing to see Neeson take on new life as an action star, even if we're entering the overdoing it phase in regard to the sheer amount of action output he's involved in these days.  Let's get him back in a drama at some point, just to mix things up. Hit the jump to check out a new Taken 3 trailer that will get you in the Christmas spirit and potentially reinvest you in Neeson's exploits to protect his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace).  Taken 3 »

With 20th Century Fox's action thriller "Taken 3" scheduled to hit January 9th, the studio has opted to give the film one last trailer with a special Christmas-themed, "12 Days of Christmas"-inspired online preview. The decidedly tongue-in-cheek clip celebrates all the spine snapping, testicle smashing, eyeball gouging, throat ripping, spleen imploding fun that comes with Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills character utilising his "special skills".

Watch: Liam Neeson Is Innocent In Clip From 'Taken 3,' Plus Shows Off His '12 Skills Of Christmas' & Signs Up For LinkedIn

15 December 2014 9:17 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, presumably "Taken 3" is the last stand for Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, but in this era of unending, forever unfolding cinematic worlds, we can't really count out another movie. After all, the actor himself had said he wouldn't do a third movie, and here we are just a few weeks away from "Taken 3" cracking more skulls in the theaters, and a new clip and other ephemera are here. So strap in, it's going to get bloody. This time around, Bryan is again on the run, but caught up in a "The Fugitive"-style plot where he's framed for the murder of his wife (shed a tear for Famke Janssen), and has to clear his name. On his tail is Forest Whitaker who is tasked with bringing in the former special agent, who carries with him a set of special skills. Speaking of which, a new promo "The »

Emma Stone & Her Astounding Peepers Star In ‘Birdman’, ‘Cabaret': Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

15 December 2014 8:56 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: It’s impossible to ignore Emma Stone’s eyes. At least until she begins speaking, but we’ll get to that. First, not to be reductive, but jeepers, creepers. Even, or especially, on a crummy December day, in office lighting at the taste-free conference room where we’ve met, them there eyes make me wonder: Are these the uncredited models for Tim Burton’s Big Eyes? No, those Keane urchins are all pupil, while Stone is all iris, heather blue leaning toward green.

Obviously, the camera loves them: Check out any scene in Birdman, where she plays Sam, the seen-it-all-including-rehab daughter of Michael Keaton, a washed-up movie star desperate to make a comeback in a serious Broadway play. Those eyes play altogether different roles in Sam’s scenes with Keaton, on the one hand, and Edward Norton’s strutting cock-o’-the-walk actor, on the other: In the former, they »

The 2014 Action Hero Power Rankings

14 December 2014 10:43 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some years are just great for certain genres, and this year was a great one for action. All across the board were films within different subgenres stepping up and delivering great action set pieces and characters. Consider the shot on the revolving tank gun revealing the totality of carnage in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, or the tight line between insanity and sharp focus with the home invasion scene in The Guest, the shot of Chris Evans plowing through several baddies with an axe in slow motion during Snowpiercer, watching Keanu Reeves dispatching thugs with slick gun-fu in John Wick, or literally any scene from the action opera The Raid 2. Take all that together in the same year (!!!!) and it’s clear to see we’ve been spoiled.

But all that aside, only one person can take the title of 2014’s Action Hero. Action Heroes are like Highlanders, »
