10 GIFs That Prove Neil DeGrasse Tyson Rules the Cosmos

15 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Neil DeGrasse Tyson proves that not all TV CGI is inherently cheesy. Throughout the series' first five episodes, he acts as a modern-day Ms. Frizzle — zooming around the galaxy in his "Ship of Imagination," a Wall-e-inspired vehicle that has the magical properties of an upgraded Magic School Bus and serves as an update on Carl Sagan's original "Ship of Imagination." Cosmos will likely soon find its way into the middle school canon, and hopefully the young people of America will find DeGrasse Tyson as charming as I do. Here's my evidence:In episode one, he actually causes the Big Bang. He creates all of life while wearing some really cool sunglasses. Do you love your pet dog? Thank Neil. In episode two, he fought off a wolf (à la Liam Neeson in The Grey), therefore taming it, furthermore creating dogs (with a little help from evolution, »

Box Office: Can 'Oculus' Producer Jason Blum Succeed Outside His Horror Comfort Zone?

14 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no surprise that the one-two punch atop this weekend's box office chart was the second weekend of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (with an estimated $41.4 million) and the debut of family cartoon "Rio 2" (estimated at $39.0 million), but the real drama lay in the fate of the No. 3 movie. That was horror film "Oculus," which rode a wave of positive buzz and even critical kudos to a third-place debut estimated at $12.0 million, enough to beat this weekend's other new wide release, Kevin Costner's sports-management dramedy "Draft Day" (No. 4 with an estimated $9.8 million).

Much of the credit for success of "Oculus" will go to producer Jason Blum (whether he deserves it or not), since Blum is by default the leading auteur in horror movies today, even though he doesn't write or direct them. As a producer, he's hit on a formula that turns micro-budgeted horror movies into profitable franchises, »

Blum On Carnahan's "Stretch," "Jem" Movie

3 April 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Grey" and "Smokin Aces" director Joe Carnahan's controversial new drama "Stretch" was pulled from the release calendar a while back with many wondering when we will ever get to see it.

The story stars Patrick Wilson as a chauffeur whose new ride is a devious billionaire (Chris Pine). Their night together leads to increasingly dangerous encounters. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Ray Liotta also star.

Universal had planned a wide release but essentially dropped the movie soon after scheduling it. The film's producer Jason Blum has now spoken about the release date incident and says there is a chance it could end up at Toronto this year. He tells Collider:

"What happened with it was that all of the movies that we make, we don't announce and date them wide until they're finished. We got ahead of ourselves with Stretch and dated the movie.

Last Action Heroesc Has the Macho, Action Genre Hit a Low Pointc

1 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't quite know how to describe the genre I'm referring to with this post (BoxOfficeMojo doesn't even have a category for it), but suffice to say I'm particularly targeting the films made popular by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone back in the '80s and more recently it seems Jason Statham had a lock down on things. Now, however, it only seems Liam Neeson can really generate any box-office juice with his cinematic fisticuffs, otherwise it has to be an ensemble or nothing. I ask because ever since Schwarzenegger made his way back to movies after playing Governor for eight years, he's seen The Last Stand, Escape Plan and this past weekend's Sabotage tank at the box office. Similarly, Stallone has seen Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan and Grudge Match bomb at the box office and Statham has seen a string of non-starters including Killer Elite, »

Liam Neeson Reveals He Turned Down The Chance To Play James Bond

11 March 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Liam Neeson has carved out a career in his late 50s and early 60s as an ass-kicking, take-no-prisoners action hero in "Taken," "Taken 2," "Non-Stop," "Unknown" and "The Grey," with "Run All Night" in the can and "Taken 3" shooting, this renaissance might have come earlier in his career. Speaking with Hull Daily Mail (via Dark Horizons), Neeson reveals he was pursued for one of the most famous franchise stars in the history of cinema—James Bond. This would have been in the era after Timothy Dalton, where a number of contenders were looked at for the role that eventually went to Pierce Brosnan. So why did Neeson bow out? "I was heavily courted, let's put it that way, and I'm sure some other actors were too," he explained. "It was about 18 or 19 years ago and my wife-to-be [Natasha Richardson] said, 'If you play James Bond we're not getting married!' »

Liam Neeson Has a Very Good Reason for Not Playing James Bond

11 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Liam Neeson has made a name for himself in recent years as the go-to tough guy for action-packed blockbusters, including "Taken," "The Grey," and most recently "Non-Stop." But while Neeson's success in that genre marks a bit of a latter-day career revitalization for the formerly more-serious star, the actor has revealed that he once had a shot at one of the biggest action franchises of all time: "James Bond."

In an interview with the U.K.'s Hull Daily Mail, Neeson said that in the era when Pierce Brosnan ultimately landed the 007 role, Neeson himself was in demand for the part -- but according to the actor, he had one very important reason for turning it down.

"I was heavily courted, let's put it that way, and I'm sure some other actors were too," Neeson said. "It was about 18 or 19 years ago and my wife-to-be [Natasha Richardson] said, 'If you play James Bond we're not getting married! »

Tsr Blog: ‘Non-Stop’ and Why It’s Safe for Movie Planes to Crash Again

7 March 2014 11:43 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Through films like Flightplan, Soul Plane, and White House Down, it has taken over a decade for Hollywood to arrive at Non-Stop.

Showing the vitality of Liam Neeson carrying a gun and a broken heart, Non-Stop recently gave the new action hero one of his biggest box office weekends so far. Involving an air marshal using a particular set of skills to hunt and kill someone threatening his plane (to paraphrase Taken), the film may seem like a generic Neeson actioner. But while his character might be a composite of previous roles, the anxiety he tackles within this film is fresh. Considering its box office success (and my mother’s intense experience in watching the movie), Non-Stop works efficiently as a thriller in 2014 because it provides viewers with imagery of in-flight chaos not seen since before 9/11. It is also the indication of a natural progression for how Hollywood films are »

Box office preview: '300: Rise of an Empire' battles 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' for first place

6 March 2014 1:23 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

After a modest February, things should start picking up across the board at the box office as we enter March. This weekend, Warner Bros. and Legendary’s macho sequel 300: Rise of an Empire debuts against DreamWorks’ animated family pic Mr. Peabody & Sherman. Clearly neither are going after the same audience, and both are primed to hit decent $30 plus million debuts, but the Greeks versus Persians sword-and-sandals epic is going to win the weekend and redeem the genre from Pompeii’s and Hercules’ poor 2014 box office showings.

Here’s how things might play out:

Weekend Box Office: Liam Neeson Flies Non-Stop to Number One, Frozen Banks A Billion

2 March 2014 4:37 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

People love to watch Liam Neeson fighting to get out of impossible situations. Taken, Taken 2, Unknown and The Grey all opened at number one. This weekend continued the tradition with Non-Stop banking $30 million for an easy number one. Second place went to Son of God which banked $26 million. That's a noticeably lower opening from the last feature film about Jesus, The Passion of the Christ, which debuted with $83 million back in 2004. After three weekends at number one The Lego Movie was finally toppled, dropping to third place. But adding $21 million to its total, the animated feature cruised past the $200 million mark. Frozen spent its 15th weekend in the top ten and is nearing the $400 million line in domestic sales. Internationally it passed the billion dollar mark, joining an elite group of just seventeen other movies to achieve that level of sales. For the full weekend top ten, check out »

Weekend Box Office: Non-stop Takes Off with $30 Million; Son Of God in Second with $26.5 Million

2 March 2014 9:09 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A rare fourth frame on top was not in the cards for The Lego Movie.  The animated hit fell to third place this weekend, surpassed by two radically different new titles.  In first place, Non-Stop is the latest thriller to star Liam Neeson and was expected by most to have a strong showing over this Oscar weekend.  What was not as expected was how close Son of God would come to shooting Non-Stop out of the sky.  Title Weekend Total 1.  Non-Stop $30,019,000 $30 2.  Son of God $26,500,000 $26.5 3.  The Lego Movie $21,015,000 $209.3 4.  The Monuments Men $5,000,000 $65.6 5.  3 Days to Kill $4,900,000 $20.7 6.  Robocop $4,500,000 $51.2 7.  Pompeii $4,300,000 $17.7 8.  Frozen $3,611,000 $388.7 9.  About Last Night $3,400,000 $43.7 10.  Ride Along $3,065,000 $127.1 Leading up to this weekend’s opening, few were sure where Son of God would land.  Fox said it was expecting around $15 million, which would have been a big win for a glorified TV movie.  Instead, Son of God brought in an estimated $26.5 million from 3,260 locations – topping the movie’s reported budget of $25 million. »

Weekend Box Office: 'Non-Stop' Tops 'Son of God' as 'Lego' Passes $200 Million

2 March 2014 7:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, Son of God failed to ignite the religious base with the same fervor as something such as Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, but considering it's a film edited down from a television mini-series, which is to say it's essentially the same as printing money, the $26.5 million it brought in for a second place finish this weekend is nothing to dismiss. In fact, it might not be done as it dipped only 2% from Friday to Saturday and it's not quite clear just how well it might end up doing on Sunday. Fox also has to love that "A-" CinemaScore, but what else would you expectc Taking #1, however, is the latest Liam Neeson actioner, Non-Stop, bringing in $30 million and an "A-" CinemaScore. Non-Stop is the second highest opening for one of Neeson's latest actioners, second only to Taken 2 ($49.5 million), but higher than The Grey ($19.6m), Unknown ($21.8m »

Friday Report: 'Non-Stop,' 'Son of God' in Close Race

1 March 2014 9:24 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Non-Stop and Son of God both did strong business on Friday, though the Liam Neeson thriller wound up with a slight edge.Playing at 3,090 locations, Non-Stop opened to an estimated $10 million. That's a drastic improvement over recent Neeson movies Unknown ($6.7 million) and The Grey ($6.5 million). For the three-day weekend, Non-Stop should finish with around $30 million.Son of God was no Passion of the Christ, though it still got off to an impressive start. The movie earned $9.4 million on Friday, which is more than Courageous, The Nativity Story and Fireproof earned in their entire first weekend. By Sunday, Son of God will likely have collected at least $27 million.After three weeks in the lead, The Lego Movie is going to have to settle for third place this weekend. The animated hit fell 39 percent to $4.4 million, which should translate to a $20 million weekend. So far, it has earned $192.7 million total, and it »

Box Office: ‘Son of God’ Earns Heavenly $1.2 Million in Late Night Debut

28 February 2014 11:18 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The box office experienced a divine bump on Thursday as “Son of God” prevailed over “Non-Stop.” The edited version of last year’s History channel miniseries “The Bible” opened to $1.2 million, proving that the faith-based community will indeed turn out if the marketing and the material is right. In contrast, “Non-Stop” which finds Liam Neeson pitted against a mysterious hijacker, opened to $720,000. Universal Studios, which is releasing the film, said “Non-Stop’s” initial results compare favorably to Neeson’s other action thriller “The Grey,” which did $150,000 in its late night debut en route to a nearly $20 million opening weekend.
