Article: First images from “Taken 2″ show off Liam Neeson’s particular set of skills

Liam Neeson’s 2008 action film “Taken” was a surprise hit when it arrived in theaters and introduced audiences to former special-ops agent Bryan Mills, a man with a “particular set of skills” that allowed him to rescue his daughter after she was kidnapped while traveling overseas.

It’s been pretty much confirmed in the past, but if you were in desperate need of some definitive proof, you now have it. Warner Bros has announced that Liam Neeson will be reprising his role as Ra’s al Ghul in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Of course, they didn’t just come right out and say it,…

Sneaky Previews: Beware the trailer for “The Grey”

Article: Sneaky Previews: Beware the trailer for “The Grey”

“The Grey” with Liam Neeson opens this weekend. It’s a good movie. I’m just not sure it’s this movie: When that trailer hit the Internet a few months ago “The Grey” quickly garnered a jokey reputation online as “The Movie Where Liam Neeson Punches Wolves.” I don’t really want to spoil the film for you,…

Article: New “Battleship” trailer is chock-full of aliens, explosions and Rihanna

Don’t expect a “You sunk my battleship” in this end of the woods. A new trailer for “Battleship” is part “Transformers,” part “Armageddon,” part “Independence Day” and part “Halo,” making the Peter Berg-directed flick looks like a big budget end-of-the-world romp that we can sort of get behind. It definitely shows a new aspect of…

George Lucas now editing his posters in addition to his movies

Article: George Lucas now editing his posters in addition to his movies

The changes George Lucas has made over the years to his “Star Wars” franchise are well-documented. Given that he just tweaked the films again for the new Blu-ray box set, I thought we wouldn’t be getting any more changes, at least for a little while. But the just released poster for the upcoming 3D version…

The first trailer for “Battleship” has finally arrived online, and it’s chock full of all the explosive, CGI action that we’ve been led to believe the 2012 film will feature. Based on the Hasbro naval combat game of the same name, “Battleship” is directed by Peter Berg (“Hancock”) and stars a long list of young…

Article: Liam Neeson Heads Into the “Unknown” (and “Hangover 2″)

Liam Neeson doesn’t have much luck in Europe. His daughter goes there in “Taken” and she gets taken, and he had to kill an awful lot of human traffickers to get her back. In the upcoming film “Unknown,” he travels to Berlin, and awakes after a car wreck to find his identity, well, taken, by…

Great moments in trailer failure: “After.Life.”

Article: Great moments in trailer failure: “After.Life.”

If your trailer can’t win a multiplex audience over — if, in fact, it incites active derision — you’re in serious trouble. Such proved to be the case this weekend with “After.Life,” the upcoming, oddly punctuated Christina Ricci-Liam Neeson horror movie (or whatever it actually is — it’s hard to tell). The “After.Life” trailer was…

Article: Investigating Sex with Atom Egoyan

Since his 1984 directorial debut “Next of Kin” and throughout his long and twice Academy Award-nominated career, Canadian auteur Atom Egoyan (“Exotica,” “The Sweet Hereafter”) has regularly and artfully explored familial and marital dynamics through the filters of disconnection, struggle and cultural identity — personal motifs that reflect his Egyptian birth to Armenian parents. However,…

What Lies Beneath

Article: What Lies Beneath

With its embrace of genre and slick production values, “Chloe” represents director Atom Egoyan (“The Sweet Hereafter”) and screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson’s (“Secretary” and “Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus”) most mainstream efforts to date. Cue the “not there’s anything wrong with that.” In fact, in many ways this chilly romantic thriller does provide…

Article: Clash of the Titans, horrible hard rock score, Muse.

The original 1981 “Clash of the Titans,” was an authentic fantasy, what we used to call an epic adventure, before that word was mangled by leet teenagers on the internets. Though It employed stop motion, it still managed to dazzle with it’s special effects at the time, especially where it combined techniques – as it…

Article: Did Jennifer Aniston and Liam Neeson sink a distributor?

2009 has been a year in which home video companies attempted to make a splash in the theatrical market and wound up doing a belly flop instead. While there doesn’t seem to be any permanent damage to Anchor Bay’s business from theatrical non-starters like Ashton Kutcher’s “Spread” after years of making a mint on DVD…

The Toronto International Film Festival starts next Thursday! September 10! Who’s excited?
