Though Liam Neeson has propelled many an action thriller to big box office numbers, his gritty noir A Walk Among the Tombstones was not what you’d call a big hit – and that’s a shame, considering that the hard-boiled detective story is a much better movie than Unknown, Taken 2 and Non-Stop added together. Luckily, for those of you who missed it in theaters, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has just announced that it will be bringing A Walk Among the Tombstones to Blu-Ray on January 13th next year.
The Blu-Ray will include a 1080p resolution transfer and a DTS-hd Master Audio 5.1 track. Additionally, a DVD, Uv digital copy and iTunes-compatible digital copy will be included on the release. Special features include:

Bono flies high on stage, but on Wednesday the U2 frontman got quite the scare while flying to Germany.
The rear door of the Learjet 60 private plane fell off while Bono and his four friends were in the air, German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation told ABC News. "The Learjet lost a door where the luggage was put in," official, Germout Freitag, said. "There can be many reasons for this incident. Either something broke on the door or the door wasn't closed properly. Those are the usual problems that occur."

But like a U2 show, the flight must go on! The plane, which departed from Dublin, Ireland, landed safely with no injuries.
While a door flying off a plane while in flight seems super-scary (have you seen Air Force One?!), it's not as bad as it may seem in the movies. "What happened here is very unusual, but they were »

The Drop, 2014.
Directed by Michaël R. Roskam.
Bob Saginowski just tends bar, keeping himself to himself as gangsters use his bar as ‘The Drop’ to funnel cash between gangs in the course of a night. But when the bar is robbed, he gets caught between good guys, gangsters and a pitbull named Rocco.
The Drop, the screenwriting debut of crime novelist Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River), might not reach the heights of either of those films, but it’s an entertaining, slow burning crime drama, with a great central performance by Tom Hardy.
Set in the bowels of Brooklyn, where there seems to be more bars than stools for folk to sit on, it’s a low key drama, where every character is hiding something shady about their past. But it’s Tom Hardy’s character, »

Director: Paul Haggis
Running Time: 213 minutes
Synopsis: Third Person tells the interconnecting stories of three couple’s relationships; (Neeson) an award-winning author has just left his wife and is shacked up with his young adulteress (Wilde), (Brody) finds himself involved in a kidnapping drama in Italy, whilst (Kunis) is an ex-soap actress trying to regain custody of her young son.
Those expecting a sweet and sugary romantic drama obviously don’t know Paul Hagis. The mind behind Crash and Million Dollar Baby obviously wasn’t going to produce anything that the audience could just ‘switch off and watch’. Third Person instead challenges the viewer to digest a multitude of tough topics.
What helps Third Person stand out from the rest is the way in which the ensemble cast all rally together to produce something magical. Each »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 7th to Sunday 2nd November 2014…
Interstellar may have failed to top the U.S. box office chart, losing out to Disney’s Big Hero 6, but it had no such competition here in the U.K., with the sci-fi epic debuting in first place with £5,378,220 and giving director Christopher Nolan his fourth-biggest opening on these shores after The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight and Inception.
Interstellar was the only newcomer to crack the top ten this past weekend, but Mike Leigh’s latest Mr Turner enjoyed a solid second weekend, climbing up to second place from its seventh-placed opening last week and pushing its total gross to £2.6 million, overtaking Vera Drake to give Leigh his highest-grossing film to date.
Number one this time last year: Gravity
1. Interstellar – £5,378,220 weekend (New)
2. Mr Turner – £1,014,433 weekend (2 weeks)

Maureen O’Hara, now 94, took time to fondly remember the Hollywood greats from her past such as John Wayne and John Ford. Legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki said he was just happy to be in the same room as Maureen O’Hara. Masterful screenwriter Jean-Claude Carriere gave a moving tribute to Hollywood’s “forgotten” writers. And Harry Belafonte, winner of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, galvanized the industry crowd by asking them to aim higher.
Yes, it was quite a night for the four honorees of the Sixth Annual Governors Awards of the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Quite a night. And the Academy got this awards season off to a roaring start with this blessedly non-televised celebration of the greats in this business who may not have always been given their due. It has also become a night for major schmoozing and networking among Academy voters and the huge numbers of Oscar hopefuls. »

Hollywood — The 6th annual Governors Awards were held in the Ray Dolby Ballroom in the middle of Hollywood Saturday night. Previously announced honorees Maureen O'Hara, Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière and Harry Belafonte were of course on hand as the room teemed with familiar faces from this year's Oscar race. Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Linklater, Logan Lerman, Michael Keaton, Jennifer Aniston, Patricia Arquette, Jean-Marc Vallée, Tilda Swinton, Oscar Isaac and Eddie Redmayne were just a few of the circuit's fixtures working the room, as the show has become a perennial stop on the Oscar campaign trail. "A Most Violent Year" director J.C. Chandor could be spotted talking over his upcoming Deepwater Horizon project with "The Gambler" star Mark Wahlberg. Clint Eastwood made his first appearance of the season with "American Sniper" around the corner (and was of course besieged upon arrival, ever the popular one). "Selma" director Ava DuVernay and »

Most big-budget action movies these days are just cartoons directed by bad animators. Somewhere between The Matrix and The Bourne Identity, the whole genre lost its brawl. You've seen one superhero defend his city from an airship armada, you've seen every superhero defend his city from an airship armada. Then there's John Wick. Simple story, not-so-simple thrills. The story: Someone kills an assassin's dog, and the assassin (Keanu Reeves) wants vengeance. The thrills: The movie constructs action scenes with patience and delicacy, filming in steady shots that track the careful choreography of Reeves' punch-shoot rampages. John Wick was directed by a stuntman, »

"It's game time!"
Of all the changes Bravo's late-night series Watch What Happens: Live has seen through the years — adding an audience, scoring big-name guests and airing nightly, among others — one thing that has remained constant is host Andy Cohen's love of games. Whether it's "Plead the Fifth" with Lindsay Lohan, messing around with a Real Housewife or getting an A-list celebrity like Liam Neeson to suck helium, viewers watch Cohen not only have a (sometimes drunken) blast with guests, but get them to reveal juicy scoop or drop some major shade.
