A Walk Among The Tombstones: First Trailer And Images Suggest Liam Neeson Needs A Different Set Of Skills

29 May 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Ever since 2008's Taken, Liam Neeson has excelled in playing mature action heroes "with a particular set of skills." In the upcoming A Walk Among the Tombstones, however, it looks like he will display a different skill-set. He's playing Matt Scudder, a former NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator. The character was created by the highly-accomplished novelist Lawrence Block and has been featured in a long-running series of books. In this big-screen edition, Scudder is hired by drug dealer Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) to investigate the kidnapping and murder of his wife. The first trailer looks like Scudder's investigation will take him to dangerous places and lead to encounters with dangerous people. Scott Frank (The Lookout) wrote the screenplay and directed. The movie...

Liam Neeson Is On The Hunt For Murderers In The First A Walk Among The Tombstones Trailer

29 May 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While you may not know writer/director Scott Frank by name, there's a very good chance that you're familiar with his work. In addition to writing the screenplays for great movies like Barry Sonnenfeld's Get Shorty, Steven Soderbergh's Out Of Sight, Harold Becker's Malice, Steven Spielberg's Minority Report and James Mangold's The Wolverine, he also made his directorial debut with the tightly-scripted, tense Joseph Gordon-Levitt thriller The Lookout. While that last film was all the way back in 2007, finally Frank is coming back with his latest directorial effort, A Walk Among The Tombstones, starring Liam Neeson. The movie won't be arriving in theaters until the fall, but from the look of this debut trailer above it can't get here soon enough. Based on the novel of the same name by Lawrence Block, A Walk Among The Tombstones stars Neeson as Matt Scudder, a former cop »

Liam Neeson Takes 'A Walk Among The Tombstones'

29 May 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Liam Neeson is back playing the role of giant badass once again in the suspense thriller A Walk Among The Tombstones. This time around the film appears to be more in the deadly serious vein (see The Grey) and less of the fun ride (see Taken), which suits me just fine. Check out the trailer:

Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-nypd cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the Pi learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last.

Trailer, Stills and Poster for A Walk Among The Tombstones Starring Liam Neeson

29 May 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal Pictures have released the first trailer and poster for A Walk Among the Tombstones, director Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) new dark crime thriller starring Liam Neeson.

Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling mystery novels, the movie will see Neeson play an alcoholic former cop in the movie, and his investigation into the kidnapping of a drug lord’s wife leads to him having to team up with a heroin trafficker in order to track down the men responsible for the crime.

From what we see in the trailer below, A Walk Among The Tombstones looks a lot darker than many of the other movies of this type that Liam Neeson has done recently, so it definitely looks promising.

Also below are some new stills for the movie, along with the official synopsis. Scott Frank also penned the screenplay and his impressive writing credits include Minority Report, The Wolverine »

'A Walk Among the Tombstones' trailer: Liam Neeson and 'Black Hole Sun,' together at last

29 May 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Liam Neeson really could use something like Scott Frank's "A Walk Among the Tombstones." The word "paycheck" is becoming synonymous with his name lately (not that things like "The Grey" and Martin Scorsese's upcoming "Silence" don't do a lot to mitigate this), but it would be good to see some serious, solid, consistent flexing from him again. In this adaptation of Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, Neeson stars as Matt Scudder, an ex-nypd cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law (naturally). He agrees to help find the people who kidnapped and murdered a drug dealer's wife and the story unfolds from there. Frank has worked wonders on the page in his time ("Get Shorty," "Out of Sight," "Minority Report") and his directorial debut, "The Lookout," was very well-received in 2007. I've been looking forward to this one for a while, »

Watch: Liam Neeson Takes 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' In Trailer For Action Thriller

29 May 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Yeah, we know, it's practically a routine at this point. Here's yet another movie, with yet another grizzled Liam Neeson, with more special skills that he uses to get the bad guys or whatever. But if there's one reason we're interested in "A Walk Among The Tombstones" it's this — Scott Frank. He's the writer/director of "The Lookout," and the pen behind "Out Of Sight," "Minority Report," "Get Shorty" and more, so we're hoping that this genre exercise is a bit of a cut above. And certainly the source material is pretty good, with the movie based on the novel by Lawrence Block, centering on private detective Matt Scudder, hired by a heroin trafficker (played by a very angry Dan Stevens) to find the men that killed his wife. Morals! But seriously, on the page, the character is a pretty great one with lots of big screen potential, so we hope they got it right. »

Liam Neeson on 'A Walk Among the Tombstones' in Thriller Trailer

29 May 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've seen Liam Neeson get into plenty of action in Taken, the wretched Taken 2, Unknown and Non-Stop earlier this year. Now he's toning it down a bit, but sticking with the thriller genre in A Walk Among the Tombstones. The film is based on Lawrence Block's novel of the same name, featuring Neeson as recurring character Matt Scudder, an ex-nypd cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. In this particular tale, he's helping a heroin trafficker hunt down the men who kidnapped and murdered his wife. It definitely has a more serious tone than Taken and seems to work. Here's the first trailer for Scott Frank's A Walk Among the Tombstones, originally from Apple: A Walk among the Tombstones is written and directed by Scott Frank (The Lookout). Liam Neeson plays Matt Scudder, an ex-nypd cop who now works as »

First A Walk Among The Tombstones Trailer, Poster, and Images Feature Liam Neeson Working Outside the Law

29 May 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released the first A Walk Among the Tombstones trailer, poster, and images for director Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) dark crime thriller.  The film stars Liam Neeson as an alcoholic ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  Despite a pretty awful-looking wig on Neeson at the beginning of the trailer, this actually looks like a much darker, more interesting film than your standard “above the law” actioner.  Frank has a number of excellent credits as a screenwriter (Minority Report, Out of Sight), and I was a big fan of his previous directorial effort The Lookout, so I’m certainly looking forward to seeing what he’s put together here.  So far so good.

Liam Neeson doesn't obey the law in A Walk Among the Tombstones trailer

29 May 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although the trailer for A Walk Among The Tombstones plays out like a gritty prequel to Taken, it's looking pretty sweet. Director Scott Frank, who gave us the underrated gem The Lookout, tackles this dark thriller based on Lawrence Block's series of mystery novels. The movie stars Liam Neeson who is once again playing outside the law; probably not even declaring his earning on his tax returns the little scamp. And good for him, otherwise we wouldn’t have an »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2007

4 February 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 6 Feb 2014 - 06:08

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...

For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.

I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.

Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »

From Hardboiled Hero to Hopeless Romantic: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Five Best Film Roles

31 January 2014 6:58 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This post is presented in partnership with Participant Media's new television network Pivot and its series "Hitrecord On TV," airing Saturdays at 10pm Et/Pt. Joseph Gordon-Levitt may be only 32 years old, but he's been acting on screen for a quarter century, having started as a child in television movies and guest roles. He's since evolved into a major film talent, impressing in both indies and blockbusters and making his feature directorial debut last year with "Don Jon," which premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. He recently made a return to the small screen with "Hitrecord On TV," a collaboratively made reimagining of the variety show now airing on Pivot. With Gordon-Levitt back on the medium that for many people provided an introduction to him as an actor, we thought we'd take a look at his work on the big screen to date with this list of our picks »
