We threw out a bit of craziness for the Non-Stop review, and not just because Shane bizarrely asked me what I thought of the movie just before we went on the air. We switched the time of the show around, apparently much to the chagrin of some listeners (who are all awesome), and the movie actually tested our ability to know what the heck was going on. That may stem from the fact that we didn’t have much in the way of serious expectations going in.
Liam Neeson had us, and the oddest thing for us was how well the film managed a lot of the development it needed to get out, despite being stuck on a plane. It did a fair job with the suspense it needs, and most of it was just plain fun. The ending ruined everything for me though, because it was like we gave up, »

We've seen comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele get hilariously excited about A Good Day to Die Hard and Liam Neeson in Non-Stop, and their work on the hit Comedy Central sketch series has led to the duo writing a feature film comedy with Judd Apatow. Now they've got another feature film project in the works as THR reports Key & Peele have signed on to produced the gestating remake of the comedy franchise Police Academy. The project has been gestating since 2010, and "Tosh.0" director Scott Zabielski was once attached to be at the helm, but has since vacated the project, leaving the position open. In addition, Paul Maslansky, producer of the original franchise that contains a total of seven films that ran for 10 years from 1984 to 1994 and even had a couple of TV series. As of now, Key & Peele are just producing, but we hope that they'll end up having »

Leave it to Captain America to once again perform heroics, this time at the box office. Not only is the estimated $96.2 million of Captain America: The Winter Soldier the biggest opening ever for an April release, it is the biggest three-day opening weekend of 2014 so far, and worldwide the latest entry of the Marvel superhero franchise is doing even better, bringing in a grand total of $303.3 million. It has already made half of the money the last entry, Thor: The Dark World made in its entire run, and getting much better reviews as well. With that kind of money coming in, Noah did not even have a chance for weekend two: at an estimated $17 million, the big scale biblical epic still falls shy of making back its money domestically, though it has long since passed that mark worldwide. Divergent’s dip to an estimated $13 million weekend has not hurt it at all, »

Led by 300: Rise of An Empire and Divergent, the domestic box office totaled $801 million in March 2014. That's down three percent year-to-year, and off 15 percent from 2012's record $943 million.For the first quarter of 2014, domestic box office totaled $2.4 billion. That's up five percent from 2013, but down from 2012, 2010 and 2009.300: Rise of an Empire opened on the first weekend of March, and won the month with $101.4 million. That's nowhere close to its predecessor, which had earned $181 million through the same point (and much more when adjusting for ticket price changes). Still, it's doing strong business overseas, and should ultimately be a success for Warner Bros.In second place, young-adult adaptation Divergent earned just over $96 million in its first 11 days. That's not on par with Twilight or The Hunger Games, but is strong enough that Summit is going to move forward aggressively with their sequel plans.Mr. Peabody & Sherman wasn't far behind with $95.1 million. »

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, »

Action hero Liam Neeson apparently gave three street punks more than they bargained for when the trio decided to attack a stray dog in front of a horrified woman. The 61-year-old actor – who is currently wowing audiences as a tough air marshal in movie thriller Non-Stop – was jogging through Central Park in New York when he heard cries for help. It seems that Neeson is just as much of a hero off-screen as he is when in front of the cameras. According to reports, the three young thugs had cornered the unfortunate animal and were in the process of stoning it. A woman who witnessed them throwing rocks [ Read More ]

Liam Neeson's keeping it really real. The actor covers the April issue of GQ magazine, where he opens up about Woody Allen's family scandal, how he's been doing since tragically losing his wife Natasha Richardson in 2009 and raising their children. The "Taken" star is good friends with Woody's ex-wife Mia Farrow, and was actually working with the director the day Allen found out Mia had discovered some inappropriate pictures of his then-adopted daughter/now-wife. While he loves Allen as a director, there was one moment on set that Liam will never forget. Warning: Some explicit language ahead."There’s a scene where I’m going down on Judy Davis, right. Judy and I are in bed -- obviously covered up -- and as I’m going down, Judy’s having this monologue in her head. And the crew are all ready, and we’re waiting for Woody. No-show. »

Liam Neeson's been acting for nearly four decades, and in recent years, he's become a serious action star. In addition to many roles in the works, Liam's had multiple hits with action-packed thrillers, including Non-Stop, which took first place at the box office when it was released last month. Before his career turned him into a big-screen hero, though, Liam had a role in Woody Allen's 1992 romantic comedy, Husbands and Wives. Liam talked to GQ about working with Woody, sharing a revealing story about when Mia Farrow found out about his affair with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi, who is now Allen's wife. Liam's account is especially timely, given recent accusations that Woody abused Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter: "It was a good experience. There was a lull; a quiet came over the set when he came on. We were out at 4 in the afternoon. It was f*cking great. »

Liam Neeson: For horse-drawn carriages in New York City, against drugs and alcohol. In a revealing new interview in GQ, the Oscar-nominated actor-turned-action star opens up about several very personal issues, including the substance struggles that he battled over the last 15 years. As he explains to the magazine, he wasn't much into drugs before a motorcycle accident that nearly took his life led him to a dalliance with painkillers.

Not content with getting his political thrills by playing corrupt, Machiavellian Us congressman Frank Underwood in House of Cards, it seems that two time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey has officially agreed to portray former UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill in a feature film depicting his life. The biopic will be entitled Captain of the Gate and The Hollywood Reporter is stating that it will chronicle Churchill's "rise to power as he stood against the parliament to defend Britain and the world from Adolf Hitler's Third Reich."
On writing duties is Ben Kaplan whose recent work includes various World War II and Vietnam documentaries and also a Ronald Reagan biopic for the History Channel. No director has been attached as yet but Studio Canal, the production company behind Liam Neeson's recent action flick Non Stop is said to be backing it. The legendary Pm has previously been portrayed »

A month ago we learned that Lost and The Hobbit star Evangeline Lilly was in talks to take on the lead female role in Marvel's Ant-Man. It's now been confirmed that her deal has closed, and she's officially on board. Word on the net is she will be playing Hank Pym's daughter and Scott Lang's love interest. It would be pretty cool if she turned out to be Wasp though, she would easily fit the character. In the comics she is the daughter Vernon van Dyne and Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym was his associate. Who knows how it will all work out in the movie though.
The Wrap also reports that House of Cards and Non-Stop actor Corey Stoll is in early talks to join Lilly, Paul Rudd, and Michael Douglas in the movie. There's no word on who he will be playing in the film if he's cast, but »

After playing American politician Francis Underwood on Netflix's House of Cards for two seasons, Kevin Spacey has signed on to play British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the political drama Captain of the Gate.
Winston Churchill was Great Britain's Prime Minister between 1940 and 1945, where he rose to power after defying Parliament to defend the U.K. and the rest of the free world against Adolf Hitler's Third Reich during World War II. Winston Churchill also served as Prime Minister from 1951 to 1955, but this project will focus on his first term during the war.
Ben Kaplan (WWII in HD, Reagan) wrote the screenplay, with Sierra/Affinity producing and fully financing the $20 million project. StudioCanal, which recently produced Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson, is in talks to produce. Cameron Lamb is producing through his Lila 9th Productions company, alongside Zero Gravity's Damon Lane. The studio is currently searching for a director.
After being rumoured as in talks last month, The Wrap has now confirmed that Evangeline Lilly (Lost, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) has joined the cast of Marvel's Ant-Man, while the site is also reporting that Corey Stoll (House of Cards, Non-Stop) is also in early negotiations with the studio.
Ant-Man is set for release on July 17th 2015, with Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World's End) directing a cast that includes Paul Rudd (This Is Forty, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) as Scott Lang, Michael Douglas (Behind the Candelabra, Last Vegas) as Hank Pym. Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, The Conjuring) is also set to appear in an as-yet-unspecified role, while Michael Pena (End of Watch, American Hustle) is believed to be in line to play the film's villain. »

The cast of Marvel’s Ant-Man just got a little more talented. Corey Stoll, so excellent as Congressman Peter Russo on House of Cards, is about to join the project. According to Variety, he’s in negotiations for unknown role in the Edgar Wright film, which all ready has stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas onboard.
Stoll recently appeared in Liam Neeson’s latest action flick, Non-Stop, and earned raves for his performance in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris where he played literary legend Ernest Hemingway. His star is definitely on the rise.
Ant-Man, which Wright co-write with Joe Cornish, has kept its plot quite a secret up to this point so it’s anyone’s guess who Stoll might be playing. Other actors said to be in the running for roles in the movie that’s been described as a “heist film” are Michael Peña (whose excellent Cesar Chavez »
