Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray Three seasons ago, Hell on Wheels was expected to be the next big thing on AMC, a historical drama that could make a bold statement at the network. Unfortunately, across its first three seasons, Hell on Wheels has not been a huge ratings bringer for AMC, and has had to deal with drama surrounding the loss of its showrunner. These obstacles have allowed the show to come out gritty and hardened, and seemingly ready to head into a new era. Early episodes of Hell on Wheels focused on Cullen Bohannan.s (Anson Mount) quest for revenge against the Union soldiers who killed his wife and child. The focus of the series has shifted during Season 3, and Bohannan.s priorities are all railroad-based. His competence as a boss and railroad manner doesn.t underscore the violent antics that have led him into »
Liam Neeson has become the go-to asskicker of late. Even more so than Jason Statham, audiences have responded to Neeson’s world-weary charms and commanding presence. So it should be no surprise that Jaume Collet-Serra’s Non-Stop was a modest hit earlier this year. Neeson stars as air marshal Bill Marks, who is forced to act when he’s contacted on an international flight to deliver a $150 Million ransom or a passenger will die every twenty minutes. My review of Non-Stop follows after the jump. The film starts by showing that Marks is a burnout, as it opens with him having a large covert drink and a smoke. As should be obvious because it’s a movie, the reason for his depression will be made evident during the film during a critical third act reveal. The film then introduces a number of the people on his flight. Before he boards »

In the season three finale of AMC’s Hell on Wheels, Elam (Common) went searching for kidnapped Cullen (Anson Mount) and stumbled upon a bear instead. Out of bullets, he was last seen losing that battle. Considering Common’s not in the first official cast photo released for season four (click here for the full version), fans might worry he’s off the show for good. Those who caught him photographed at the cast and crew’s season 4 kickoff dinner, though, may assume Elam’s back. Exec producer John Wirth confirms it: “He survives the bear attack, but I think »

Hell on Wheels returns Aug. 2, and the AMC Western—which parlayed Saturday night success into an expanded 13-episode fourth season—will have more than one new face. One that might surprise fans is that of Cullen’s young Mormon bride, Naomi. Originally played by Siobhan Williams, the character was introduced early last season when the railroad carved its way through her family’s Nebraska homestead. Cullen (Anson Mount) had sex with her once in the barn, but then had to hang her brother after her trigger-happy father blamed his son for killing of a member of the railroad police. In the season 3 finale, »

Title: Supremacy Director: Deon Taylor Starring: Joe Anderson, Dawn Olivieri, Danny Glover, Derek Luke, Evan Ross, Lela Rochon, Robin Bobeau, Anson Mount, Nick Chinlund, Julie Benz A polished technical package lends considerable emotional weight to “Supremacy,” a siege/hostage drama shot through with racial animus. Based on real events, director Deon Taylor’s movie connects largely on the strength of its solid acting and charged stakes, but suffers a bit from muddled plotting and a dramatically diffuse end game. A world premiere at the recent Los Angeles Film Festival in its L.A. Muse section, for films by up-and-coming filmmakers that either take place, were filmed in or inspired by the city of Los Angeles, “Supremacy” unfolds [ Read More ]

Liam Neeson may have launched his career with serious fare like Schindler’s List, but the moment Taken ignited at the box office, it became obvious that the actor had found his niche. Since that modern action classic, he’s led The A-Team, unraveled an assassination plot in Unknown, faced down wolves in The Grey and once again combatted human traffickers in Taken 2. The actor’s formula for these action flicks is pretty clear-cut. Neeson plays a gruff but likable badass, who’s hurtled into an impossible situation and forced to fight his way out, all the while maintaining his intrinsic dignity. The actor’s latest, Non-Stop, never tries to break away from that formula, though director Jaume Collet-Serra (who previously helmed Unknown with Neeson) does make a cliché-riddled ride enjoyable.
Quickly establishing a sense of claustrophobia and expertly handling a number of close-quarters action sequences, Collet-Serra proves capable »

Now available on Blu-ray/DVD, Non-Stop is a thrill ride that follows U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Liam Neeson), who receives a series of text messages that put his fellow passengers at risk unless the airline transfers $150 million into an off-shore account. As things escalate, everyone is a suspect, including the air marshal, himself. From director Jaume Collet-Serra, the film also stars Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Lupita Nyong’o, Scoot McNairy, Linus Roache, Corey Stoll and Anson Mount. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Anson Mount talked about how he got involved with the film, how many changes the script went through before they shot it, the duality of the character, the challenges of shooting a fight scene in an airplane bathroom, and how much he enjoyed working with Liam Neeson. He also talked about Season 4 of his AMC drama series Hell on Wheels, where the story is taking them this season, »

Liam Neeson is Bill Marks, federal air marshal on a flight to London.

I recently had the chance to speak with actor Ben Foster about his role as Matt "Axe" Axelson in the harrowing action-thriller Lone Survivor, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD today, June 3. During our chat, he also offered a few brief updates on two upcoming projects, the video game adaptation Warcraft and the Untitled Lance Armstrong Biopic, where he plays cyclist Lance Armstrong, who admitted to using performance enhancing drugs during his his reign as Tour de France champion.
Duncan Jones is directing the video game adaptation Warcraft, which producer Thomas Tull revealed earlier this month employs "next generation" technology in the lengthy post-production process. While Ben Foster wouldn't offer any details regarding the story or his character, he did echo Thomas Tull's earlier statement about how director Duncan Jones is pushing the envelope with the technology they are using.
"It's big (Laughs). I just saw what the Ilm guys have brought back, »
Whilst the impressive cast for the film has been known for sometime, this is the first information we've really had on one of the roles they'll be playing. Talking about his character with IGN, Foster says:
"The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He's a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer. He came up in a time protecting an area, and the way he protected this area was through magic. As peace returned to this land he took a break. He hung up his staff, so to speak, or let his guns get dusty.
We meet him as his friends are returning asking for his help in a battle. What's exciting about Duncan Jones' take »

While the main cast for Warcraft was revealed quite some time ago, with Paula Patton, Anson Mount, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Travis Fimmel, Anton Yelchin, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper and Ben Foster all taking on substantial roles in director Duncan Jones video game adaptation, none of the characters have been mentioned. Now, in an interview with IGN, Ben Foster confirms that he is playing the sorcerer Medivh in this fantasy based action adventure.
According to the World of Warcraft wiki: Medivh was the last Guardian of Tirisfal, an ancient line of protectors bestowed with great powers to do battle with the agents of the Burning Legion. He was corrupted even before birth, and possessed by the spirit of the demonlord Sargeras who used Medivh in his plan to conquer Azeroth. Medivh contacted the orcish warlock, Gul'dan, and together they opened the Dark Portal, which allowed the Burning Legion to begin its destruction of Azeroth. »
