10 Aging Actors Who Could Totally Pull Off An Action Comeback

13 April 2015 2:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate

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 »

First 'Ted 2' Clip: Wahlberg Schools Seyfried on the Law

11 April 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Iff Panama: Geraldine Chaplin a Firm Festival Favorite

11 April 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »

Movie Review – John Wick (2014)

10 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick, 2014.

Directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick.

Synopsis:

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, »

Keanu Classic: John Wick

10 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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. »

'Key and Peele' Recaps 'Game of Thrones': "The Dinkles Is My Jam!" (Video)

9 April 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Key and Peele's valets are moving on from "Liam Neesons" to their next obsession: Game of Thrones. The two overenthusiastic characters binged on the HBO series in preparation for Sunday's premiere and got to live through the shock of all of those character deaths. Much like their obsession with Neesons (Liam Neeson), the two had an assortment of names for the characters, including Ned Starks, the Kalisis, the Hound Dog, Tywon Lannisters and their all-time favorite — the Dinkles (Peter Dinklage).

Cool Videos: What about Ned Starks!? Key & Peele recap Game of Thrones

9 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The recurring valet characters on Comedy Central series Key & Peele have done a great job of sending up popular movies and shows. Last year, they teamed up with Liam Neeson to tease Non-stop and now they are back to do the same thing for Game of Thrones. While there are no cameos from the HBO fantasy series in the video, this uncensored sketch highlights pretty much all of the key events from all four seasons to date. So it goes without saying that if you are not caught up and are »

Ex Machina Asks If a Robot Can Think -- And Is She Coming On to You?

7 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Ex Machina is an egghead thriller with a scary selling point: Unlike Liam Neeson shooting up half of Boston, this actually could be taking place right now. It's a smart film about the shrinking divide between man and robot. It's also a hoot, an anti-comedy where all of the jokes double as threats, and vice versa. Ex Machina is the directorial debut of sci-fi screenwriter Alex Garland, who penned the better-than-it-should-be Dredd and the three-quarters-perfect Sunshine. If he didn't keep things so handsome and confident, it could play as camp. As is, it's the film version of an iPhone: small, expensive-looking, and a touch overhyped — plus an addictive sales pitch for whatever Garland makes next.

Star Wars Digital Edition Hitting April 10th Loaded With Additional Bonuses

7 April 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As the world prepares to completely lose its mind with the release of the new Star Wars film, it is obviously time to try to stir the pot as much as possible. That in mind, the previous films from the franchise are going to be released on April 10th in digital edition, and with some new bonuses to help sucker you in to the purchase.

They also come with the legacy bonus content, and put together, these are impressive releases. I don’t want to overly comment on how many sales the first three episodes are going to get, but if you need to catch up on the universe in general, this is your chance. And, since we’re looking at a new generation who need to get on board for the new film, this is the way to go.

Take a look at all the bonus potential below, and »

Kevin Connolly -- Everyone Wanted a Part in 'Entourage', Except for .... (Video)

5 April 2015 12:35 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Kevin Connolly says the "Entourage" cameo wish list was fulfilled with the exception of one Big star. Kevin was leaving The Nice Guy nightclub in WeHo Saturday, when we asked about the most elusive big star. Producers pretty much got what they wanted ... special appearances by Pharrell, Tom Brady, Liam Neeson, Calvin Harris, Jessica Alba, Ronda Rousey, Billy Bob Thorton and Haley Joel Osment. But one guy said no.  Hint ... he's big in physical stature, »

Third Person DVD Review

4 April 2015 3:14 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Paul Haggis

Starring: Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Olivia Wilde, James Franco and Kim Basinger

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 137 Minutes

Extras: Commentary with Paul Haggis, Jo Francis, Moran Atias, Laurence Bennett and Michael Nozik, “The Making of Third Person” and a Q&A with Writer/Director Paul Haggis

Originally released in the Us last year, Third Person finally arrives on DVD in the UK to the unsuspecting public and I must admit, I never heard of this until now but with Liam Neeson is in it – what’s not to like? There’s also Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis and Adrien Brody so what could possibly go wrong? The film tries to tell three stories about love, passion and betrayal consecutively. They’re set in New York, Paris and Rome, you could say these places are usually associated with romance but this is not the case in Paul Haggis’ film. »

Directors: Chad Stahelski, David Leitch

Cast: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palecki, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: John Wick (Reeves) is a retired hit man who finds himself drawn back into the dangerous world of organised crime after the local mob boss’ son Iosef (Allen) breaks into his home and murders his dog, a gift left to him from his recently deceased wife. 

In recent weeks we at Thn have been taking a walk down the memory lane of Keanu Reeves’ career in our series Keanu Classics. The series has looked at past victories Bill & Ted, My Own Private Idaho, Point Break, Speed and The Matrix. Since The Matrix though it’s all been a little quiet on the Keanu front. He popped up in Christmas 2013 release 47 Ronin briefly and then vanished again. All that is about to change this »

Pierce Brosnan Turns Action Star In The Trailer For ‘Survivor’

2 April 2015 11:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Pierce Brosnan is knocking on now, but that hasn’t stopped him from running away from exploding vehicles or chasing after female targets with a gun. No, the former James Bond has gone all Liam Neeson on us in a brand new trailer for the upcoming thriller Survivor for director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta). We have the first trailer for the summer movie below.

Starring Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil franchise) and Pierce Brosnan (Bond franchise), Survivor is a gripping thriller about State Department employee Kate Abbott (Jovovich), newly posted in the American embassy in London. Kate is charged with stopping terrorists from getting into the U.S. which puts her directly in the line of fire: targeted for death, framed for crimes she didn’t commit, discredited and on the run. Now she must find a way to clear her name and stop a large-scale terrorist attack set for »

Taken 3 Arrives on Digital HD Ahead of Easter Weekend

2 April 2015 9:24 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Liam Neeson makes use of his particular set of skills one last time in Taken 3, the third and final film about a man with incredibly bad luck and the killer instinct to overcome it. Though the Taken 3 Blu-ray and DVD release date is still a ways off on April 21, the Digital HD release is closer than you may think.

Fox Home Entertainment dialed back the clock nearly three weeks to deliver the Digital HD version of Taken 3 on April 2. That's today, so Taken 3 is now available to download and watch over the three-day Easter weekend.

Follow this link to Amazon.com where you can buy and immediately start watching Taken 3 on Digital in high definition for $14.99, or in standard definition for the same price. The choice is obvious.

I'll be back with a Taken 3 Blu-ray review closer to the April 21 release date.

Survivor Trailer: Pierce Brosnan Tries to Kill Milla Jovovich

2 April 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Pierce Brosnan is on a bit of an action kick as of late (possibly inspired by Liam Neeson?), and that continues in the first trailer for the thriller Survivor. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), the film stars Milla Jovovich as a Foreign Service Officer who, after being mysteriously framed for a terrorist bombing, finds herself the target of a ruthless assassin, played be Pierce Brosnan. The movie looks like it could be a fair amount of fun, and it certainly has an impressive ensemble bolstered by Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, and James D’Arcy. Brosnan’s already proved that he can handle action well, and with the recent release The November Man as well as the upcoming No Escape and the nutty-looking Urge, it's clear he's keen to play in all different types of genres while taking advantage of the popularity of the "older actor kicks ass" trend. »

Watch: Pierce Brosnan Is Trying To Kill Milla Jovovich In First Trailer For 'Survivor'

2 April 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Pierce Brosnan played James Bond from 1994 to 2005, so clearly he knows his way around action fare. Yet his latest attempts at trying to position himself as a Liam Neeson-esque aging action star haven't been working out. You probably already forgot about last year's "The November Man," and this coming summer he's got the pretty terrible looking "No Escape" with Owen Wilson, but first is "Survivor" which I didn't even know existed, and a new trailer has arrived. James McTeigue ("V For Vendetta," "Ninja Assassin") directs this film about a Foreign Service Officer who is targeted by a ruthless assassin while trying to clear his name after being framed for a terrorist bombing and to stop the real bad guys' actual plan. That sounds exhausting. Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster also feature in this movie that has no shortage of electronic gadgets and actors looking aghast. "Survivor" arrives in theaters. »
