News: Liam Neeson Will Find Them And Kill Them Again In Taken 2 Trailer And Brief Featurette

Posted in Movies, Trailer with tags , , , , , , on September 2, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

Okay, I admit it. I was a little late to the Taken party. I finally got my stupid ass around to watching the action thriller a few weeks ago, and my God it did not disappoint. Liam Neeson is ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills. His young daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) ventures off on holiday overseas to France much against his will, and such is the way in these things, badness happens and his daughter is kidnapped. Mills, using his particular set of skills, brutally and efficiently tears his way through the Paris underworld in order to rescue her. It is fierce, violent, and fantastic. Anyway, luckily for me, Taken 2 is out soon and here’s the trailer. Continue reading

News: Seven Psychopaths Red Band Trailer And Posters

Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges was the perfect mix of gangster thriller and pitch black comedy, and the director’s re-team with Colin Farrell seems to be in very much the same vein. The last trailer for Seven Psychopaths was brilliant but lacked the edge of McDonagh’s features, will the red band version of the trailer provide it? Let’s take a look.

Sony’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo didn’t exactly set cinema screens alight with its box office performance earlier in the year. It did enough, $232 million in global box office, to have people working on the follow-up The Girl Who Played With Fire (writer Steven Zallian is busy typing away) but Sony seem in no rush to get it made.

I’ve been on a bit of an action movie bender lately. Among the more forgettable, throwaway titles, I watched The Expendables, the movie that brings together an entire generation of action movie stars, and Taken, where Liam Neeson plays and ex-CIA agent who’ll go through anybody and anything to rescue his kidnapped daughter. These two titles got me thinking – Exactly how many people have these walking holocausts killed altogether? Continue reading

News: Fox Pass On Joe Carnahan’s Daredevil, Rights Head Back To Marvel

Posted in Movies, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

Last time we talked about Daredevil Fox Studios were in talks with director Joe Carnahan. They wanted to get the film into production now in order to retain the rights to the character and not have them revert to Marvel. The Grey director produced some sizzle reels for his vision of The Man Without Fear, but Fox didn’t really like what they saw and decided to pass. With it now looking impossible to get the film into production by the October deadline, it seems Fox have given up and decided to let the rights go back to Marvel.
