You’ve probably seen him in lots of stuff: he’s been in a ton of great movies but he’s a bit of a chameleon and looks different in all of them. He’s one of those actors who, when his name pops up in the credits, you know you’re in for a good time when he’s onscreen.
So even though I would like you to stop looking, you pretty much couldn’t go to the movies anymore if you did.

If action cinema has taught us anything over the past few years, it’s this – don’t, under any circumstances, screw with Liam Neeson. Alas, the generic baddies at the heart of this fall’s dark crime thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones do exactly that and, in predictable fashion, pay for it dearly.
With Taken, its sequel, Unknown and Non-Stop under his belt, Neeson has a pretty winning formula for action fare – growl some threats, bark some commands and kick some serious ass. Whether this upcoming pic, less high-octane than high-atmosphere, will deviate from those three steps remains to be seen, but even it doesn’t, there are worse tickets to plunk down cash for than one that allows you to watch Neeson go through those same badass motions one more time.
At the least the new crop of images from A Walk Among the Tombstones reminds us that »

A couple of months ago, it was reported that Scoot McNairy (Argo, Non-Stop) had nabbed an unknown role in Zack Snyder's upcoming film Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Though her supporting role as a flight attendant in the Liam Neeson actioner Non-Stop was a bit of a bust, not giving the talented actress much of an opportunity to show off her dramatic chops, Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery still feels like she’s on the cusp of a major Hollywood breakthrough. Now, the actress has joined another promising project that should help her star rise even higher – indie thriller Queen of the Earth.
Dockery stars with Top of the Lake actress Elisabeth Moss in the psychological thriller, which will be directed by Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip). It centers on two women who take a trip to a remote beach house in hopes of escaping the daily grind and other pressures in their busy lives. Though they’re lifelong best friends, the pair eventually acknowledge the growing disconnect between each other, allowing their suspicions about one another to cross over into reality. »

Dockery and Moss will play two former best friends who retreat to a beach house to escape the pressure of their busy day-to-day lives. The pair soon discover how distanced and separated they've become from one another, leading to suspicion and isolation.
Dockery recently received her third Emmy nomination her role as Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey. She is in contention for the Lead Actress prize at this year's ceremony, »
Superheroes are usually looming, muscular, young and big - their voices boom with gravitas. So, the idea of 40-something comedic actor Paul Rudd playing a superhero that is small seemed interesting with a side of dubious. However, after seeing the funny side of superherodom in Guardians of the Galaxy, we're now all in for Ant-Man! Filming started today in San Francisco; it will also film in Atlanta.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.
The geriatric legends return for a third raid on the box office, but Sly and his pals both old and new have a tough mission to beat the turtles to top spot this weekend. The moviegoing audience for this film will likely be older, but with a more lenient rating than the R-rated “Expendables” 1 and 2, it will be interesting to see how much the pre-release leak of the movie online has sated interest among younger audiences, who could potentially have represented a new market for the franchise. »

When Bette Davis coined the phrase “Old age is no place for sissies,” she may as well have been describing the plot of “The Expendables 3.” Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the ensemble film features a cast of mature action vets who aren’t about to trade in their bullets for bifocals just yet. As the third entry in the popular franchise explodes into theaters on August 15, here’s a look at 12 films starring some of the toughest seniors in cinema.
Continuing his late-career reinvention as a post-middle aged action hero, Liam Neeson plays a federal air marshal who receives a series of threatening texts during a transatlantic flight. Trapping the 62-year old star in a confined location proved a wise decision as the modestly-budgeted thriller opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and earned over $200 million worldwide.
Arriving on September 26, this feature adaptation of the »

Some things are just different in the UK. Cigarettes are called fags, apartments are called flats, and apparently Anna, as it is known here in the States, is called by its original title of Mindscape. Check out the new trailer from across the pond.
The flick will be coming to UK DVD 25th August.
Mark Strong, in his first leading role in a feature film, plays John, a mind detective paid to enter people’s memories and uncover the reality behind their alleged crimes.
But what will he make of his new assignment, the brilliant but troubled teenager Anna, played with effortless panache by one of America's best upcoming talents - "American Horror Story's" Taissa Farmiga? As John enters her mind and becomes more involved in her sometimes brutal memories, he must decide if she is indeed the victim of unspeakable trauma or a very clever and manipulative sociopath. »

The arrival of The Expendables 3 leads James to the conclusion that, when it comes to being an action hero, age is just a number...
"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73 I have learned a little... a little about the real structure of nature, of animals, plants, trees, birds, fishes and insects. In consequence when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90 I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100 I shall certainly have reached a marvellous stage; and when I am 110, everything I do, be it a dot or a line, will be alive." - Hokusai, the Japanese artist who painted the famous 'Great Wave off Kanagawa' and kept on creating astounding art until his death at the age of 88.

Simon Pegg tries to find the secret to happiness in his latest film. He chats to us about its making, British cinema and more...
Simon Pegg is back in cinemas this week, in Peter Chelsom's Hector And The Search For Happiness. Ahead of that, the man himself sat down with us for a chat, that led to us - genuinely - being locked in a hotel room together for a minute or two.
It was not helped by us holding a packet of Love Hearts at the time. It's probably best you don't ask.
Anyway, we kept our professional composure, and this is what happened...
Given what a globetrotting movie this one is, how are your passport stamps looking?
It's ridiculously stamped now!

When the Wachowskis’ space epic Jupiter Ascending was taken off the summer calendar and slotted for next February, we had a feeling that the shift might mess up Warner Bros.’ previously laid plans for early 2015. Now, the studio has officially announced what it’s changing – the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night has been moved from February 6th (when Jupiter will now open) to April 17th next year.
Even if effects work hadn’t caused Warner Bros. to delay Jupiter, it was possible Run All Night still would have ended up moving forward. After all, Fox is releasing Taken 3, also with Neeson, next January.
Run All Night will mark Neeson’s third collaboration with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) penned the script, which centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to go up against his brutal, sadistic former employer (Ed Harris »

Heaven Is For Real, the faith-based movie starring Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly and Thomas Haden Church, had a strong run in theaters earlier this spring behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Now it’s making just as heavenly a debut on Rentrak’s weekly DVD and Blu-Ray sales and rental charts, topping one Top 10 and second only to Liam Neeson’s latest actioner, Non-Stop, on the other. The only other debut in the rentals this week was Tyler Perry‘s latest, The Single Moms Club, distributed by Lionsgate and coming home at No. 9. The rest of the rental chart is populated mostly by holdovers, including The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes […] »
There was some confusion at the Marvel Hall H panel this weekend, when the studio presented their Ant-Man test footage. Studio president and producer Kevin Feige announced that Evangeline Lilly will be playing Hope Van Dyne, which was also stated in their press release. She is actually playing Hope Pym, who eventually turns into a character known as Red Queen in the MC2 Universe. She is the daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, and its unclear why or how Marvel mixed the name up.
Here is the re-issued press release:
Lilly will play Hope Pym, the daughter of Hank Pym, while Stoll will play Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket, the antagonist of the film. The two join stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), along with director Peyton Reed, for the size-changing super hero’s first cinematic adventure.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige said:
"We’ve been fans of Evangeline for years, and couldn’t be more pleased that she’s agreed to join us on Ant-Man’s journey to the big screen. We look forward to audiences learning more about her character when she joins forces with Hank Pym and Scott Lang in 2015."
"Corey brings depth to every role he plays. As a major part of the Ant-Man ensemble, »

The big show in Hall H for this year's Comic-Con is all done, and the day closed out with the signature Marvel panel. While no new projects were announced, we did get some tasty footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron (more on that in our Marvel video blog coming soon). But everyone is already on board with the superhero ensemble sequel, and Marvel really needed to make some waves to show the crowd that Ant-Man could stand on its own. In order to win over the crowd, they brought the charming Paul Rudd and veteran Michael Douglas, not to mention confirming two stars who weren't officially announced yet. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige brought out Evangeline Lilly and revealed that she will be playing Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym (Douglas). And they also introduced Corey Stoll (Non-Stop), who is playing Darren Cross, a corporate figure who will »
