The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman film, is in production at the moment -– it’s due out in July next year.

2011′s Unknown (not to be confused with 2006′s Unknown) is one of those movies that easily translates into a thrilling trailer. You’ve got lots of action (car wrecks, things exploding, hand-to-hand combat), beautiful women (January Jones and Diane Kruger), and mysteries (Where is Liam Neeson’s passport? Why is Aidan Quinn pretending to be him? Is January Jones in on the con? Where did Frank Langella come from?!) In other words, while we have no idea if the full-length version will be as exciting as this snippet, we’ll probably be shelling out 10 bucks in order to find out. … Read More

Elizabeth Banks plays a mom who likes to over document her son’s life with digital photos/a convicted murderer. Russell Crowe is her devoted husband. After she tries to commit suicide at the prospect of spending another 20 years in prison, he decides that it’s time to learn how to use a gun and break her out. Liam Neeeson plays the ex-con who helps him come up with a plan. … Read More
Atom Egoyan’s new thriller explores themes of jealousy and passion with a European sensibility that puts a smart spin on the love-triangle trope.
Based on 2004 French film Nathalie, Erin Cressida Wilson’s subversive script follows a woman (Julianne Moore) as she hires a prostitute (Amanda Seyfried) to test the fidelity of her husband (Liam Neeson). As their encounters grow more intense, the lines between reality and fantasy blur and unexpected desires are awakened in all three. Universally strong performances anchor a wild story that ventures into the uncharted depths of human sexuality. … Read More
A first look at the new A-Team cast reveals an eclectic mix of actors rivaling the original. Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quentin “Rampage” Jackson are set to helm Joe Carnahan’s film adaptation. Or in other words, a veteran award winner, an up and coming star, an almost complete novice, and a certifiable lunatic. More on each them after the… Read More
