If you’re regular reader of The Shootening you’ll know I have a great big man-crush on Liam Neeson. I shan’t go about it, suffice to say I think he awesome. That said, I find his introduction to this new Internet only Taken 2 trailer a little cringeworthy. Take a look. Continue reading

The Bourne Legacy poster claims “There was never just one”. We know this. We’ve seen the Bourne trilogy. Those assassins sent to take Jason out after his memory problems? Pretty sure they’re all part of the programme. But hey, that’s just a silly poster. The film won’t make those types of mistakes… will it? Read on.

I’m not sure how but I’ve missed telling you all about Rian Johnson’s Looper. I mean this is right up The Shootening’s street – a sci-fi time travelling actioner starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis as the same character?!

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

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

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.

News: The Girl Who Played With Fire Will Not Be Out In 2013, Fincher May Still Direct

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.
