Check it out below. Plot: Based on the first novel of a trilogy by Tom Rob Smith, the story is set in the Stalin era of the Soviet Union. An idealistic pro-Stalin security officer decides to investigate a series of child murders in a country where supposedly this sort of crime doesn't exist.

The new movie is directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and is set to hit theaters on April 17th. Poster: (click to enlarge) »

Child 44 looks like it will promise moody drama and solid turns from such respected acting types as Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy. We’d put good money on the first trailer making its way online soon, especially since the poster for the film has arrived via Hitfix. Adapted from the first of a book trilogy by Tom Rob Smith, Child 44 finds Soviet police officer Hardy investigating a serial killer who is targeting children. But as he digs deeper into the case, his own government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him. Rapace is playing his conflicted wife and Gary Oldman is the chief of police eventually assigned to who investigate Hardy.Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is behind this one, working up a tale of paranoia, treachery and crime that is loosely based on real events. With Richard Price handling script chores and Joel Kinnaman, »
Thanks to HitFix, we’ve got a look at the first poster for Child 44, director Daniel Espinosa’s (Safe House) adaptation of Rob Smith’s 2008 Soviet-era crime thriller Child 44, which stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Gary Oldman…
In a country ruled by fear, no one is innocent. Stalin’s Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security officer Leo Demidov, a war hero who believes in the iron fist of the law. But when a murderer starts to kill at will and Leo dares to investigate, the State’s obedient servant finds himself demoted and exiled. Now, with only his wife at his side, Leo must fight to uncover shocking truths about a killer-and a country where “crime” doesn’t exist.
Child 44 is set for release on April 17th in the UK, »

With Taken 3 kicking all sorts of box office ass at the moment, it seems as though the public hasn't had enough of Liam Neeson's particular set of skills. If you're one of those moviegoers who contributed to the Taken 3 bonanza this past weekend, then you're probably going to like this trailer for Run All Night. In Run All Night, we see Liam Neeson's Jimmy Conlon squaring off against Ed Harris' Shawn Maguire. The two men are friends who've turned enemies after Neeson kills Harris' son to protect his own. Now it's up to Neeson and his son, played by Joel Kinnaman, to stay ahead of Harris' goons, crooked cops, and any one else that stands in the way of the duo surviving a rather perilous night in New York City. After watching the trailer for Run All Night, it looks like the project brings an »
Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass.
But when Jimmy’s estranged son, »

Nice timing, this. The same day Liam Neeson hits theaters in Taken 3 comes the first trailer for his next shoot-‘em-up. In Run All Night, the late-blooming action hero plays an over-the-hill hitman once known as the Gravedigger. Now better at draining whiskey bottles than his victims’ lifeblood, he is forced to get back in the game when his son (Joel Kinnaman) becomes a target. The erstwhile Gravedigger must choose between his crime family and the real family he abandoned years ago. “I’m coming after your boy with everything I got,” the hitman’s longtime best friend and mob boss (Ed Harris) tells him. “And when it’s done — and it will be done — then I’ll let you die.” Vincent D’Onofrio, Bruce McGill, Genesis Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, Holt McCallany and Common co-star in the R-rated film helmed by Jaume Collet-Serra — who directed Neeson in last year’s airborne actioner Non-Stop. »

Reuniting with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Sera, Liam Neeson once again wheels out his action movie bad ass shtick for Run All Night, playing a former hit man given one night to save his son from the mob. There is a bit of promise here from the below. Not from Neeson, the ship has sailed when it comes to him playing the aging bad ass, but some good support from Joel Kinnaman and Ed Harris, and some decent action. But then there is the rendition of "O Danny Boy" that caps the trailer, raising the cheese factor up a hundredfold. Check it out below. Released: 17th April (U.S.)/ 1st May (Irl/U.K.) »

From all accounts, Taken 3 is a terrible movie. I'm refusing to see it because I absolutely hated the second one so much, and I think director Olivier Megaton is one of the worst directors working today. I've written before about how I'd like to see Liam Neeson branch out from his action niche and try something different, but if he's going to keep making films in which he's the grizzled badass, at least they won't all be directed by Megaton.
Neeson reunited with his Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra for Run All Night, a new action film that pits Neeson against a mob boss played by Ed Harris. There are shades of Lucky Number Slevin in here (an underrated film I love), and the trailer indicates that the addition of Joel Kinnaman as Neeson's character's son will provide a bit of variation in the action formula this time around. »

Yesterday, Fargo made some huge casting announcements for its second season. The FX anthology series, which had already snagged Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst for lead roles in Season 2, has now cast a trio talented actors to join them, as it is official that Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, and Jean Smart will be playing major characters. Wilson will star as the younger Lou Solverson (who was originally played by Keith Carradine in Fargo Season 1), “a clean cut Minnesota State Patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband to his wife and father to four-year-old Molly.” (I’m a big fan of Wilson but, like Hitfix’s Dan Feinberg, I’m really disappointed that Fargo didn’t go with The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman.) Meanwhile, Danson will play Hank Larsson, “the Sheriff of Rock County, Minnesota. An unflappable WWII vet who… »

Liam Neeson returns to grizzled, fatherly-action-star character form in the trailer for Warner Bros.' Run All Night. Neeson plays a mob hit man, Jimmy Conlon, and gets entangled in a mess when he kills the son of best friend and mob boss, Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), while protecting his own estranged son, Mike (Joel Kinnaman). The title of the film comes into play as Jimmy runs all night shooting up mobsters to keep Shawn from getting to his boy. As the trailer shows, once Eminem starts singing "Cinderella Man," things get really hard, really fast. Run All Night will »

The action movie centres on a hitman (Neeson) who goes head-to-head with his former boss to protect his family and estranged son.
Run All Night opens in Us cinemas on April 17 and May 1 in the UK. »
At the ripe old age of 62, Liam Nesson shows no signs of slowing down. Following the breakout success of Taken back in 2008, the Northern Irish star has swapped brooding dramas to become a bona fide action star. And judging by the explosive new trailer for Run All Night, that trend looks set to continue unabated.
Reuniting with director Jaume Collet-Serra — who helped cement Nesson’s action hero credentials through Unknown and last year’s airborne thriller Non-Stop — the actor’s latest outing will have him step into the shoes of “The Gravedigger,” an iconic hitman who soon finds his past catching up with him thick and fast. And one figment that appears to be causing the most concern is Ed Harris’ Shawn Maguire, who leads the charge to target Nesson’s son, played here by Joel Kinnaman.

After we reported on the first images being released, we now have our first look at Neeson in action (isn’t he always) in his latest thriller Run All Night.

With "Taken 3" hitting theaters this weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer from Liam Neeson-starring action thriller "Run All Night," which marks the actor's third collaboration with Spanish-born director Jaume Collet-Serra ("Unknown" and "Non-Stop").
"Run All Night" follows a Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past -- as well as a dogged police detective (Vincent D'Onofrio) who's been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years.

This weekend, moviegoers around the country will undoubtedly line up for Liam Neeson in the third (and supposedly final) "Taken" film - and while those moviegoers wait for "Taken 3" will be given an extra jolt of Neeson-related ass-kickery in the form of the new trailer for "Run All Night." And it's really, really cool.
In "Run All Night," Neeson plays a former hit man (his nickname was "The Gravedigger," so you know he was good) who intervenes when a killer is sent to murder his son (Joel Kinnaman from the "Robocop" reboot). That puts him in the crosshairs not only of his gangland former employer (Ed Harris), as well as a squadron of crooked cops (led by Vincent D'Onofrio). So that's the incredibly catchy synopsis: one night, Neeson and his estranged son against killers, thugs, and crooked cops. It's going to be awesome.
"Run All Night" marks the third »
