2 hours ago

When we first get to know who Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills really is in Pierre Morel's Taken, it's basically because he's delivering his resume over the phone to a bunch of kidnappers. We all know the line: "If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you." Well, with Taken 3 on the horizon, 20th Century Fox has taken it to the next level by actually giving Bryan Mills his own LinkedIn profile. Set up with the profile name "BryanMillsSecurity," the page is fully filled out to sell Bryan Mills as one hell of a professional ass-kicker.

In a recent public Q&A session at Facebook.s California headquarters, Zuckerberg discussed the 2010 film, and its embellishment of certain elements. He was also upset because he found the film quite hurtful.

However, Peter Jackson isn.t only making waves for his final Middle-earth adventure. He.s also creating a bit of tension in the movie-making world for accusing modern movie makers of using too much technology. Yep. You heard me correctly. Peter Jackson is calling out others for using too much technology. Here.s what he said in a recent interview with Movie Fone. I don't really like the Hollywood blockbuster bandwagon that exists right now. The industry and the advent of all the technology, has kind of lost its way. It's become very franchise driven and superhero driven. I.m not even sure where to start with this. Jackson has made his fortune by bringing a giant franchise to life. Even more than that, his latest endeavors with The »

Why Night At The Museum 3 Is Actually The Touching Sendoff Robin Williams Deserves

19 December 2014 8:37 AM, PST

Very few of us get the opportunity to script our own farewell. David Chase and Vince Gilligan did it with their own brilliant television programs. Stephen Colbert did it last night. And the late, great Robin Williams pulls it off beautifully with Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb, which you can start seeing today. This column will talk openly about Night at the Museum, so bail now if you want to avoid all spoilers. Our own Mike Reyes mentioned this in his review of the third and final Night At The Museum chapter, commenting that director Shawn Levy and co-stars Robin Williams and Ben Stiller "end the film with an emotional finale that closes out the series in a bittersweet manner." Williams returns to his role of the wax-figure Teddy Roosevelt, who comes to life each evening to help museum security guard Larry (Stiller) on a series of »

This Music Teacher's Tribute To Star Wars Is The Greatest Holiday Lights Show We've Seen

19 December 2014 8:31 AM, PST

We.ve now reached the stage where there are so many Star Wars homages out there that it.s almost impossible to be impressed by anything new that tips its hat to George Lucas. beloved series. However a music teacher from San Francisco has managed to do just that with his very own Star Wars music Christmas lights show. It simply needs to be seen to be believed. I know, it really is quite remarkable, isn.t it? And all the credit for this rather wonderful nod to Star Wars belongs to Tom BetGeorge. When he.s not busy trying to blind his neighbors with the power of Christmas lights, Tom BetGeorge is a music teacher at the Conservatory of Vocal and Instrumental Arts in Oakland and the Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont. He also clearly really, really likes Christmas too. So much so that he choreographed 100,000 lights to seamlessly »

19 December 2014 7:17 AM, PST

Think about it. By this time next year, you will already have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Probably multiple times. We.re now less than one calendar year away from having a new Star Wars movie in theaters, and to recognize that incredible fact, J.J. Abrams and his cast recorded this very special "Thank you" vid from the Pinewood set of Star Wars 7. The video is a culmination of a fundraising effort J.J. Abrams started months ago to drive awareness and funds to Unicef. Those who contributed were competing to earn a walk-on part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In fact, when this dude found out he won the raffle of a lifetime, it looked a lot like this: Abrams says in the video that in addition to a $1 million contribution made by Walt Disney to start the fundraiser, Star Wars fans raised an additional $4.6 million »

A Pissed Off George R.R. Martin Says He'll Screen The Interview Himself

18 December 2014 9:22 PM, PST

It's not every day that an author gets involved directly with the affairs of a film that doesn't involve their own work whatsoever. Every now and then you'll see someone like Stephen King buy out showings of a film like 28 Days Later so he can make sure the house is packed with moviegoers who wouldn't normally seek such a film out. When an author does something like this, it's because they either believe in the message or they see something redeemable in the film's release into the open. The latter is exactly why George R.R. Martin is offering to screen The Interview at his own cinema in Santa Fe. That, and he's seven books past being fed up with how Sony abandoned the film. On Martin's personal Live Journal page, he launched a post entitled "Corporate Cowardice." As you would come to expect from the man who created the »
