Writer/director Paul Haggis took home two Academy Awards for his efforts on Crash, the Best Picture winner that examines racial/class tensions in modern Los Angeles through a series of inter-locking stories (note: that’s not at all related to the twisted erotic drama Crash by David Cronenberg); in the time since then, however, Haggis’ output has fallen more within the vicinity of straight-forward genre fare, like his Iraq war drama In the Valley of Elah and script work on James Bond adventure Quantum of Solace and the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 video game.
Third Person, the upcoming movie written and directed by Haggis, is the filmmaker’s return to the inter-weaving narrative thread structure of Crash. It features three stories about couples that are separated by geography (each lives in New York, Paris, and Rome, respectively), but connected through ...

Set in Paris, Rome and New York, Third Person follows three different love stories, all connected with each other in some way. Michael (Liam Neeson), Sean (Adrien Brody) and Rick (James Franco), the three main male characters, are leading very different lives, each with their own problems. However as each story unravels, secrets are unveiled and relationships come under scrutiny, testifying to the complications of life.
The trailer doesn’t give too much away about each character’s story, however it does leave us wondering how the plot will link the individuals together. A release date for the Us hasn’t yet been confirmed, however it will be released this month in Italy and Belgium, and Japan later this year. »

His Crash still polarises and he’s back with another sweeping drama, Third Person, that extends the canvas to global dimensions and boasts a cast including Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco and Mila Kunis. Heck, even Kim Basinger turns out for this one. Watch the new trailer below.Neeson plays a novelist who leaves his wife (Basinger) to shack up with Wilde’s character in Paris. For the writer, it’s an autumnal romance that could have far-reaching consequences, a predicament that Franco and Kunis’s warring ex-couple are already facing in the second plot thread. That pair, an artist and actress respectively, are vying for custody of their six year-old son.The third element sees Adrien Brody involved with a Roma woman (Moran Atias) whose daughter has fallen into »

Michael (Liam Neeson) is a writer whose latest manuscript has been refused, so he flies off to Paris to rethink his life, leaving his wife (Kim Basinger) behind in the States.

In Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Neil DeGrasse Tyson proves that not all TV CGI is inherently cheesy. Throughout the series' first five episodes, he acts as a modern-day Ms. Frizzle — zooming around the galaxy in his "Ship of Imagination," a Wall-e-inspired vehicle that has the magical properties of an upgraded Magic School Bus and serves as an update on Carl Sagan's original "Ship of Imagination." Cosmos will likely soon find its way into the middle school canon, and hopefully the young people of America will find DeGrasse Tyson as charming as I do. Here's my evidence:In episode one, he actually causes the Big Bang. He creates all of life while wearing some really cool sunglasses. Do you love your pet dog? Thank Neil. In episode two, he fought off a wolf (à la Liam Neeson in The Grey), therefore taming it, furthermore creating dogs (with a little help from evolution, »

Liam Neeson has expressed his support for New York’s horse-drawn carriages before, but now he’s taken his stance to the New York Times’ opinion pages in an April 14 editorial.
Horse-drawn carriages have been a constant in Central Park for years, but recently a movement has begun against them for the sake of the horses’ health and safety. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio promised to close the industry in his campaign, and remains committed to the issue. And Neeson isn’t happy about it.
“It has been my experience, always, that horses, much like humans, are at »

The first trailer for Third Person is finally here. The movie premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013, and on Tuesday, the Japanese trailer made its online debut. Director Paul Haggis' latest effort does not yet have a U.S. release date. The film stars Mila Kunis, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Liam Neeson, Moran Atias and Adrien Brody. The interwoven drama tells the story of three couples and takes place in New York, Paris and Rome. In New York, Julia (Kunis) has been charged with attempting to kill her son. She denies doing so, but in the meantime, her son ends up living with his father, Rick (Franco), who is fighting for sole custody. In Paris, Michael (Neeson) leaves his wife »
Paul Haggis has had an interesting and varied career as both a screenwriter and a director. He’s had some hits, including winning an Oscar for his 2004 film Crash, and some misses, but he always makes an interesting film. His latest directorial effort, Third Person, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and despite an excellent cast, it has still not managed to get a U.S. release date. It does, however, have an international trailer.
The film centers around three couples across the world; or rather, in three iconic capital cities: New York, Paris, and Rome. James Franco and Mila Kunis are a young couple in a nasty battle over their son; Adrien Brody saves a stranger’s daughter from human traffickers; and Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde have an affair. I’m sure that all these stories are intertwined somehow, but the trailer does not reveal all the connections. »

Following a debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and a forthcoming slot at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, an international trailer for Paul Haggis' most recent directorial effort Third Person has arrived. Though the film doesn't have distribution in the United States yet, the star-studded cast that includes Liam Neeson, James Franco, Adrien Brody, Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde has made it appealing enough to get a release in Italy and Belgium this month and Japan later this year. Unfortunately, we're not looking forward to the film getting picked up for release in the Us, because this looks melodramatic, overwrought and cheesy as hell. If you didn't like Crash, this one won't be for you. Here's the international trailer for Paul Haggis' Third Person from Vlicious! (via The Playlist): Third Person is written and directed by Paul Haggis (Crash, The Next Three Days) and follows three stories in Paris, »
