StudioCanal have released a new trailer and first image for The Commuter – the latest action-thriller thriller from director Jaume Collet-Serra, which reunites him with his Unknown and Non-Stop star Liam Neeson, who appears in the film alongside Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Sam Neill.
Liam Neeson plays an insurance salesman, Michael, on his daily commute home, which quickly becomes anything but routine. After being contacted by a mysterious stranger, Michael is forced to uncover the identity of a hidden passenger on his train before the last stop. As he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, he realizes a deadly plan is unfolding and is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy. One that carries life and death stakes, for himself and his fellow passengers.
The Commuter is relased in cinemas on 19th January 2018. »

Despite a big-screen pedigree that includes such critically acclaimed films as “Schindler’s List” and “Love Actually”, Liam Neeson will forever be associated with “a particular set of skills” honed by his character in “Taken” and its two sequels.

Liam Neeson is retracting recent comments he made about retiring from action movies because he’s getting too old. The actor had suggested at last week’s Toronto International Film Festival that he’s done being an action hero and will turn back to dramatic roles once again.

“They’re still throwing serious money at me to do [action movies]. I’m like: ‘Guy’s I’m sixty-f******-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go: ‘Come on,’ ” Liam Neeson recently said about his late-career resurgence as a man with a very special set of skills. Whether or not that means he’s going to punch his ticket on action flicks remains to be seen, he’s got at least one more coming with “The Commuter.”
Co-starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, and directed by Neeson’s go-to action dude Jaume Collet-Serra (“Unknown,” “Non-Stop,” “Run All Night“), this actually plays like “Non-Stop” but on a train, with the story centering around a mild-mannered dude who gets caught up in a criminal’s complex plans.

3.11 La Serpiente
Fear The Walking Dead isn't a universe that allows happy endings. Sure, you might get a few happy moments here and there, and between seasons anything is possible, but on a macro level, nothing's going to work out for anyone, and everyone's going to die miserably. After all, these are a bunch of people who are trying to scratch out a living in an inhospitable desert, an arduous process even before the whole zombie apocalypse outbreak. However, La Serpiente ends on a strangely pleasant note. Daniel and Strand have a handshake and an understanding of mutual benefit. Madison's gotten the water needed to keep the peace and keep the ranch alive. »

I don’t really know what it’s like to be an actor and even less what it’s like to be an aging actor, but I have to wonder what made Michael Keaton take this role in American Assassin. He signed on to play this role after being nominated for an Oscar for Birdman and having wrapped production on The Founder, so he had done two big meaty acting roles in a row and he chose…this. Maybe the money was too good (and he didn’t know he would sign to be The Vulture a month later), maybe the phone just isn’t ringing off the hook for older actors if you aren’t in the Clooney-tier. American Assassin is a bad movie and it makes Keaton look like a dime store Liam Neeson. He should be doing better things than this, everyone in this movie should. Movies »

2008 was a monumental year. No, not because England were absent from the Euros, but because this was when Taken first saw the light of day, introducing us to the character of Bryan Mills and in turn taking Liam Neeson‘s career into a new dimension. Now however, the Irish actor has decided to turn his back on making action movies, citing his age and a desire to take on serious roles as the key reasons.
Despite this, Neeson claimed at the recent Toronto International Film Festival: “They’re still throwing serious money at me to do this stuff”, adding “I’m like: ‘Guys I’m sixty-f******-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go: ‘Come on.”
Who knew nine years ago that the Ulsterman would become synonymous with the genre, almost a byword for ‘action’ itself? Well, as he has deemed it “all a pure accident”, certainly not the man himself. »

The commute from the suburbs to the big city just got deadly in the first trailer for The Commuter, with Lionsgate also releasing the first photo and the rather Hitchcockian first poster. This marks the fourth collaboration between Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra, who have previously worked together on Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night. This trailer may be somewhat bittersweet for die-hard Liam Neeson fans, though, when you take into account the news that dropped earlier today.

Liam Neeson has enjoyed a long and varied career as an actor. He made his stage debut in 1976 and then began appearing in films and television shows. His notable supporting role in John Boorman's Excalibur (1981) brought him increased attention, as did his turn in The Bounty (1984) opposite Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins. From there, the sky was the limit. He began snaring lead roles, such as in Sam Raimi's action movie Darkman, but it was his performance as Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List that elevated him to the top ranks, earning him an Academy Award nomination. He easily moved between heavy-duty dramas like that and blockbusters such as Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and Batman Begins. Yet it was his starring role in...

Liam Neeson is “taken” with the action genre no more. The unlikely action star is retiring his particular set of skills and turning his back on the action genre a few months past his 65th birthday.
