After a welcome reprieve in August, the 2014 box office woes returned in September.Overall domestic box office totaled just $513 million, which is down 11 percent from last year. More importantly, this was the lowest-grossing month at the box office in six years (dating back to September 2008).The abnormally low total can be chalked up to a dearth of content early in the month. As Above/So Below and The November Man were weak late August releases, and the major studios entirely avoided the first weekend of September; the only movie to open wide on that date was Freestyle Releasing's The Identical, which has taken in less than $3 million total. By the time the studios got back in to the game on September 12th, the damage was already done.The month's top performer was The Maze Runner, which tallied $60.2 million through its first 12 days. The young-adult adaptation started with a strong $32.5 million, »

In Taken 3 or Tak3n, Liam Neeson is forced to once again use his special set of skills only this time it’s to prove his innocence and find the man who wronged him. In this first trailer for T3ken we learn that Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is a trained sniper and explosive expert among the […]
Is Hollywood's fascination with the older male asskicker a new thing? Its resurgence certainly seems to be. I know there were Death Wish sequels in the '80s; and before that, I know John Wayne kept shooting at people long past the age most people stop. Unforgiven took the form and turned it into meaningful criticism. Et cetera, et cetera. But this thing that's going on now, where Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills and/or Denzel Washington works at Home Depot but secretly kicks ass? It feels new. And it feels like it has something of a surly, selfish purpose. I mark the start of the operation at around 2007, or Live Free Or Die Hard (sometimes called Die Hard 4). We could also,...

The first official trailer for Taken 3 (or TAK3N as they're calling it) has hit the internet and while the previous movie may have tempered your interest in the franchise, this one looks like it could be pretty darn good. Come inside to check it out!
Honestly, after Taken 2, I can say that I had no real interest in a third outing. While I loved the first film, it seemed the idea had run its course and Taken 2 was largely lackluster. It had some interesting moments, but the energy and fun from the first film was absent. TAK3N may have brought it back:
What I love most about this trailer, is how they've increased the stakes a great deal. The first two films' tension relied on the threat of what could happen to his loved ones if he failed. Within this trailer we already see that his ex-wife (who »

The first trailer has arrived online for Tak3n, in which Liam Neeson reprises his role as family man / professional badass, Bryan Mills. Things are looking particularly dire for Bryan this time out, with his wife (Famke Janssen) having been brutally offed, and all the evidence seeming to implicate him as the culprit. However, Mills is not a man to go quietly, and it isn’t long before he’s on the run from the authorities, while simultaneously trying to take his revenge on the real killers. Take a look at the new trailer, below… ...

In A Walk Among the Tombstones, Roché stars alongside longtime action-vet Liam Neeson and Downton Abbey heartthrob, Dan Stevens, but he wants fans to know that Neeson’s presence does not make this another Taken. “Everyone thinks that a Liam Neeson movie about someone who got kidnapped is Taken, but this is a totally different kind of movie,” Roché told uInterview in an exclusive video interview.
Roché currently stars as Mikael on The Originals, and, while his character in A Walk Among the Tombstones is a drug dealer, he is far from the super villain Roché plays on TV. “I’m supposedly a bad guy – in the film – I play this Russian drug dealer whose daughter gets kidnapped. »

Back in 2008, the Pierre Morel directed and Luc Besson produced (and co-written) Taken gave Liam Neeson a surprising career resurgence as an action hero. Not to mention, it was pretty awesome to say the least. Olivier Megaton’s Taken 2 in 2012 was not nearly as awesome and was just more of the same, but a worse version of it. Megaton, Besson, and Neeson are back for Taken 3, which is being referred to as Tak3n (yep, that’s what’s on the poster). Before the groans start, the trailer for the film actually looks kind of badass. No one is taken, at least not in the trailer, there is no foreign country in sight, and Neeson’s character, Bryan Mills, looks to be in a very different situation than in his previous outings. It is probably best to remain cautiously optimistic on this one before it is released on January 9, 2015. Watch the trailer below. »

Is an intro really necessary here? It's "Taken 3." No, Forest Whitaker and Liam Neeson haven't remade "The Fugitive," and I certainly haven't seen "Taken 3;" but watching the below trailer, "The Fugitive" (itself based on the 1960s television series of the same name) immediately came to mind, although this time with Whitaker playing the character Tommy Lee Jones originated on the big screen, and Neeson as Harrison Ford's Dr. Richard Kimble. "Taken 3" is set for a January 2015 theatrical release. Watch: »

Because Liam Neeson is the new Charles Bronson, he doesn't need a wife. Her only use is being disposed of, so he can exact his unique form of justice with his special set of skills avenging her death... At least that's what appears to be going on in the trailer for Tak3n (yup, that's the way they want us to write Taken 3 for now at least) - the latest in what is essentially a new Death Wish series. And I have no problem with that whatsoever.Liam Neeson is back as Bryan Mills for another bullet ballet, mofos. Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace also return, along with director Olivier Megaton and Forest Whitaker. I cannot wait....

Liam Neeson and his particular set of skills are back in Tak3n (or Taken 3), the third installment in an explosive franchise that helped reinvent Neeson as the badass action star he was always meant to be. The first trailer for the sequel (due in theaters on January 9) has busted its way online, and you can check it out below. We're definitely feeling a vibe that's like a cross between Jason Bourne and Harrison Ford's The Fugitive, as this time around Neeson's Bryan...

Liam Neeson is one wanted man! In a new trailer for Taken 3 released Tuesday, the 62-year-old actor finds himself in hot water after his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) is found murdered in her bed. Before cops are able to arrest Neeson in the family home, the ex-cia agent breaks free, leading to a massive manhunt across Los Angeles County. "There are things I've done in my life and I was always ready to face the consequences to protect my family," Neeson says in the sneak peek. "My first priority is to protect the only one I have left." That special someone is his on-screen daughter (Maggie Grace) who somehow avoids being taken in the latest film. The first installment »
Just when things were on the up for Bryan Mills, it all goes pear shaped when he’s framed for the murder of his ex-wife (Famke Janssen). It’s enough to put a downer on anyone’s day.
Liam Neeson stars as Mills in the third instalment of the Taken franchise, Taken 3. And it looks like he’s going to have to use all of his wits to get out of this one. The story picks up with Mills on the run from the law while trying to find out who’s really responsible for the murder (sounds a bit like The Fugitive doesn’t it?). You can see the trailer below:

Now Bryan Mills must use his "special set of skills" to protect the only family he has left -- his daughter Kim -- and his name when he becomes a prime suspect in his wife's murder. Forest Whitaker also stars in the third installment of the action-packed flick, as cop Franck Dotzler. We do love seeing the "Non-Stop" star in action -- are you excited to see "Tak3n"?
