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, »

Watch a Trailer in Which Sean Penn Pretty Much Plays Liam Neeson

12 December 2014 2:45 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The trailer for The Gunman, the big-screen adaptation of the bestselling novel The Prone Gunman by Jean-Patrick Manchette, has arrived. Sean Penn plays Jim, an assassin who decides he wants out of the business, but his organization isn't letting him go just like that. His big, bad boss (Javier Bardem) is pissed, and war between the two ensues. Things get real when Jim's girlfriend (Jasmine Trinca) is kidnapped and he has to go into full-on Liam Neeson mode. The film's director, Pierre Morel, also directed Taken, so the parallel isn't too far-fetched. The movie opens on March 20; get a peek with the trailer below, and then check out all the movie trailers for films opening in 2015! »

12 December 2014 11:29 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Liam Neeson is playing a hitman again? Ever since Neeson starred in “Taken,” Neeson has become the go-to actor for hitman thriller films. The latest film starring Neeson as a hitman, “Run All Night,” has Neeson once again fighting between the life of crime he’s led and his family ties. However, in “Run All Night,” which will come to theaters April 17, 2015, Neeson has to save his son, who is now a target. “Run All Night” and is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed “Non-Stop,” which features Neeson playing another kind of action star – an air marshal. The film also stars Joel Kinnaman, Vincent D’Onofrio and Ed  [ Read More ]

The Gunman Trailer: Sean Penn Begins His Liam Neeson Period

12 December 2014 10:16 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Gunman. Call it a prestige version of Taken. It even has the same director. The difference? In the place of Liam NeesonThe Gunman stars multiple Academy Award winner and very serious actor Sean Penn. Based on the first trailer, released today and presented for your viewing pleasure below, the story seems pretty similar. Penn plays a former killer whose past comes back to haunt him, leaving him with his back to the wall and a gun in his hand. Hard Cut to: he shoots his way out. Watch The Gunman trailer below: The hard sell for real nerds is director Pierre Morel. This guy has worked on some of the most electric and operatic action movies of the past decade. He was a cinematographer on the first two Transporter movies and Louis Leterrier’s Unleashed, he directed the French thriller District B13 and the first Taken film. He even gave us the radically insane hot »

It's Sean Penn vs. Javier Bardem in the action-packed trailer for The Gunman

12 December 2014 6:25 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

With Taken 3 looking like the last entry in the Liam Neeson franchise, we are going to need another aging actor used to critical acclaim to kick ass with a particular set of skills. Luckily, Sean Penn was willing to take a break from his humanitarian efforts around the world to wield some serious firepower for Pierre Morel in The Gunman. Co-starring Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, Idris Elba, and Javier Bardem, The Gunman has a cast that rivals any number of studio pictures and yet feels like »

Sean Penn As Action Star (?!) In The Gunman Trailer

11 December 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Let's not pretend. In 2014, it's very strange to see Jeff Spicoli as an action star. Sean Penn, now 54 years of age, stars in The Gunman as a spy who "must clear his name in order to save himself from the organization that he used to work for." The new trailer shows that Penn can deliver his lines with just as much gravity as Liam Neeson does in his action movies. He also runs a little and jumps around and shoots one or more guns, all while looking deadly serious. That (kinda) fits with the cinematic career Penn has fashioned over the past three decades, filled with deadly-serious roles that are far away from the formulaic appearance of The Gunman. To be absolutely fair, the movie...

First 'Taken 3' Clip with Liam Neeson & Forest Whitaker

11 December 2014 1:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) asks for two days to clear his name during a phone conversation with Franck Dotzler (Forest Whitaker) in a new clip from Taken 3. Unlike the original 2009 blockbuster Taken and the 2012 follow-up Taken 2, Bryan Mills isn't trying to rescue his loved ones, but instead is pulled into a Gone Girl-type scenario, where he is accused of the brutal murder of his ex-wife (Famke Janssen), shortly after they reconciled. As you can see in the clip below, Bryan Mills has no intention of turning himself in peacefully, as he begins his quest to prove that he didn't kill his ex-wife.

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, Mills must use his "particular set of skills" to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, »

New Clip And Poster Tease Liam Neeson’s Final Mission In Taken 3

11 December 2014 1:07 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox plans to send ex-cia operative Bryan Mills out with a bang in Taken 3, the last instalment of their action franchise. After the mediocre events of Taken 2, a third outing for the badass with a “particular set of skills” wasn’t a guarantee. Nevertheless, strings were pulled and we’re now celebrating Mills’ final hurrah next year with a new clip and brilliant one-sheet poster.

After the first trailer hit, opinion surrounding director Olivier Megaton’s second sequel in the franchise was positive. Effectively upping the tension tenfold, the story really does a number on poor old Mills by ruining his chances of a permanent reconciliation with his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen.) Why? Because she’s murdered (don’t worry, this is all in the official synopsis, so it doesn’t stricly count as a plot spoiler.) Framed for the killing, Mills goes on the run »

New Taken 3 Clip Starring Liam Neeson and Forest Whitaker; Plus New Poster

11 December 2014 12:26 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox just released a new Taken 3 clip from Olivier Megaton's action sequel starring Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, an ex-cia operative and all-around badass whose family has really had a rough time these last few years.  By now we know all about Mills' "particular set of skills," but it seems Franck Dotzler (Forest Whitaker) doesn't quite know what he's up against yet.  Hit the jump to check out the clip and to take a look at the new poster.  The film opens in theaters on January 9, 2015. Taken 2 was a mess, but the first trailer for Taken 3 showed a lot of promise.  I like the idea that Mills' horrifically violent actions have consequences.  I like that they're raising the stakes by killing off Lenore (Famke Janssen) right off the bat.  I love that they're shaking up the formula and not actually having someone get taken. »

Sean Penn Has Javier Bardem In His Sights In The Gunman Trailer

11 December 2014 12:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Pierre Morel launched Liam Neeson into the starry stratosphere in abduction thriller Taken, and that’s a formula he seems intent on continuing. His latest entry into the action canon, The Gunman, sees him switch out Neeson’s grizzled Brian Mills for Sean Penn’s hitman. The names may have changed, but the game remains the same, as judging by this first trailer there’s loads of weapons, explosions and sour-faced do-gooders.

Ahead of the film’s spring release, the debut of its trailer offers a by-the-numbers glimpse at what we can expect on the big screen. Penned by Pete Travis (Dredd) and based on the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette, The Gunman follows Penn’s Jim Terrier, an international assassin who longs to put his murderous days behind him. When his former organization vows to silence him on their exploits, they kidnap his girlfriend (Jasmine Trinca), prompting Terrier to »
