Liam Neeson continues to follow the footsteps of Bruce Willis by ending up in the wrong place at the wrong time in Taken 3, a twist on the previous two installments where Neeson's Bryan Mills finds himself on the run from the law for a murder he clearly did not commit, Fugitive-style. Give Neeson and reason to beat people up and he's instantaneously enjoyable to watch. Condense his butt-kicking to two action scenes in the film's latter half and something feels amiss.
With his international days of battling kidnappers behind him, Mills is trying his best to reconnect with his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace) and subtly rekindle a romance with his ex-wife, Lenore (Famke Janssen). After the film spends a half hour setting up the domestic situation that also involves a curiously large amount of time spent witih Lenore's new husband, Stuart (Dougray Scott), the brutal murder of Lenore sends »

The new film brings the action to Los Angeles as […] »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

The gang is back in the "Entourage" movie, which picks up about seven months after the series finale and finds everyone living a whole lot larger with Ari (Jeremy Piven) running a studio and Vince (Adrian Grenier) directing his first movie. That's Hollywood.
Last year, we were invited to "Turtle's Malibu beach house" set, where we chatted with stars Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, and director Doug Ellin. Here's the vital info we learned about the big-screen baller reunion, which hits theaters June 3rd.
1. Vince is now a director.
The movie is called "Hyde," a modern-day version of "Jekyll and Hyde," where Dr. Hyde is a Tony Stark-style genius chemist "with a dark side," according to production designer Chase Harlan. E is producing, Vince is directing, and Drama's got a small role. "The guys have a lot riding on this new movie, and because it's Ari's first movie at the studio, »

Nearly four years after the TV show ended its eight-season run, the "Entourage" movie is finally coming to the big screen. So how did the cast get back into the swing of things? "We started with this walk and talk, which we did a lot on the show," Kevin Dillon (a.k.a. Johnny "Drama" Chase) told us while promoting the film at CinemaCon. "Where you just leave the camera running and you're dong a three page scene without cutting. So they started us off with something difficult, and that kinda helped us get into the flow of it. Good ol' 'Entourage' walk and talk." So who were their favorite celebrity cameos? "Ronda Rousey," Grenier immediately answered. "Liam Neeson was awesome," said Dillon. "[And] the Gronk! I love the Gronk!" Which is a football player, as it turns out. Watch the full interview above for more on the film's »

As the name suggests, the so-called “geri-action” movie involves actors of the elder variety generally behaving in a way not befitting of their advanced years. Liam Neeson kick-started the trend by rebranding himself as an action hero with the Taken films and now everybody seems to be at it.
60-year-old Denzel did it with 2 Guns and The Equalizer, 71-year-old Robert De Niro did it with Killing Season and Grudge Match, and virtually everyone’s at it in The Expendables and Red franchises. Hell, even King of the Cockneys Michael Caine was blasting geezers away in Harry Brown aged 77.
The arthritic-fun doesn’t stop there. Some aging former A-listers who’ve fallen a tad out of favour are now trying to break back into Hollywood’s good books via action movies of their own. 61-year-old Pierce Brosnan had a go last year with The November Man, both Sean Penn (54) and »

We just haven't seen enough from Ted 2 yet! And it's only a few months away from hitting theater screens across the country this summer. But that all changes courtesy of the MTV Movie Awards, which has just debuted the first clip from the anticipated sequel. We also get to see Mark Wahlberg introducing this sneak peek while at a mini-golf course, as he torments his MTV host with the ball, trying to stuff it in his mouth.
The clip itself features both Mark Wahlberg and Ted, voiced once again by writer and director Seth MacFarlane. It also introduces a new character played by incoming love interest Amanda Seyfried. John Bennett and Ted have sought out the help of a lawyer, and the duo quickly spiral into a riff-off on law terminology. While the clip itself is somewhat short, we do get a sense of what we can expect from »
Panama – “I have to thank my wrinkles,” Geraldine Chaplin jokes in the lobby of the American Trade Hotel in Panama City as she prepares for the festival screening of the critically acclaimed “Sand Dollars” (“Dólares de Arena”). The film, which premiered in Toronto, has already won the hard-working actress, winkles and all, a number of awards including in Cairo, Chicago and Havana. Expect more to follow throughout the year.
Chaplin, who is making her second visit to the Panama Film Festival, is a big fan of film festivals in general and credits a festival for her involvement in “Sand Dollars.”
“I was at a festival, I think it was Lima, and I watched a film called ‘Jean Gentil’ that was directed by Laura Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas. I really liked the film, and it was a film that stuck in my head,” Chaplin explains. “I thought I would contact the »

John Wick, 2014.
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.
Since that fateful day when Keanu Reeves fired his gun in the air and yelled “aaaarrrrgggh” he’s become a regular in the action genre. He dipped his toes with Point Break. He experienced box office and pop culture success with Speed, before ending the century as Neo in The Matrix, arguably the most significant action movie of the last 20 years in terms of cult-following, pop culture reference and blue printing future action films (even if The Matrix pilfered from more sources, than films in turn have since aped The Matrix).
Whilst Reeves has often been dismissed as someone lacking in acting range, »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome. Our review is finally live so why not have a butcher’s at it once you’ve finished this feature.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. The man has made some brilliant movies over the years as well as the odd turkey. The interesting thing about a Keanu Reeves turkey though is that somehow you still enjoy it. For example, Johnny Menmonic and Chain Reaction are some of the silliest films – Mnemonic has a mind-reading dolphin for Pete’s sake – and yet we’re still completely charmed by Reeves and his old Ted persona. »
