[Trailer] TAK3N

Liam Neeson is back again in Taken 3 or better put TAK3N and boy he’s pissed.

TAK3N

Tak3n has a cast consisting of  regulars, Maggie GraceLiam Neeson & Famke Janssen with Forest Whitaker being the newcomer on board. Check out the trailer below;

STORY: Ex-government operative Bryan Mills finds his life is shattered when he’s falsely accused of a murder that hits close to home. As he’s pursued by a savvy police inspector, Mills employs his particular set of skills to track the real killer and exact his unique brand of justice. :D

ANALYSIS: The trailer says it all. This sequel of Taken is going to fuel an adrenaline rush. Could feel it already from watching the trailer. Seems Liam Neeson is going to go encore for this and adding Whitaker to the mix certainly makes this worth looking forward to.

Can’t wait to see it when it hits the cinemas on the 9th of January, 2015.

So tell me, what do you think of the trailer folks? Share your thoughts with me in the comments box.

[News] Liam Neeson Joining The Cast of Ted 2

Neeson might be threatening people perhaps?
Neeson might be threatening people perhaps?

Here’s hoping that Liam Neeson and Seth MacFarlane‘s upcoming film project is more successful than their last effort together.

 

In his tweet, MacFarlane noted that both Neeson and recently confirmed cast member Morgan Freeman had been on the set to film this week.

Neeson, who currently stars in A Walk Among the Tombstones, played the villain in MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West, which flopped earlier this year. Ted, released in June 2012,grossed $549.4 million worldwide.

Ted 2 stars Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried. Universal releases the film June 26, 2015.

[News] Bryan Singer Will Direct X-Men: Apocalypse

As expected, Bryan Singer has officially been confirmed as the director of X-Men: Apocalypse.

He weirdly looks like Cumberbatch

This will be the fourth film Singer has helmed in the franchise, following this summer’s mega hit X-Men: Days of Future Past. While Singer has been tweeting about the project for over a year, there was some speculation that the he might lose the gig in the wake of his recent legal troubles, in which plaintiff Michael Egan alleged that Singer sexually assaulted him when he was underage. The charges — which you can more read about in Robert Kolker’s recent New York feature — have since been dismissed, albeit in such a way that they can be refiled in the future.

Happy he’s back in The Chair for this project…

[News] Colin Farrell Confirms His Starring In True Detective Season 2

Colin Farrell is your new “True Detective.”

colin farrell

After weeks of speculation, the “Saving Mr. Banks” actor has confirmed he’ll be starring in Season 2 of the HBO crime drama, telling the Sunday World: “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.” He then added: “I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.

The network still hasn’t confirmed Farrell’s casting.

“True Detective” Season 1 starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey and was directed by Cary Fukunaga, who won an Emmy for his work on the show. It was additionally nominated for four more Emmys including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Harrelson and McConaughey.

Farrell is the first actor to be cast in “True Detective” Season 2. Contenders for the role opposite him including “Mad Men’s” Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams. Creator Nic Pizzolatto is once again writing all eight episodes, though Fukunaga will not be returning.

True Detective Season 2 is slated to premiere next summer.

[News] Maze Runner Makes It To The Front

The Maze Runner jumped out to the front of the pack on Friday with $11.25 million.

Maze Runner Cover

Otherwise, business was relatively quiet: A Walk Among the Tombstones and This is Where I Leave You fell a bit short, while No Good Deed and Dolphin Tale 2 fell hard going in to their second weekends.

Playing at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner debuted to more than twice as much as recent young-adult misses likeThe Giver ($4.75 million) and The Host ($5.3 million). Still, it only opened to around half as much as March’s Divergent ($22.8 million), which puts it squarely in the middle of the young-adult range.

A closer comparison is last November’s Ender’s Game, which opened to $9.8 million on its way to a $27 million weekend. If The Maze Runner follows Ender‘s pattern, it will finish the weekend with just over $30 million (a very good result).

Opening at 2,712 theaters, A Walk Among the Tombstones took second place with $4.7 million. Among Liam Neeson movies, that’s less than half of Non-Stop‘s $10.1 million, and is also noticeably lower than The Grey‘s $6.5 million. For the weekend, Tombstones should wind up with around $14 million.

This is Where I Leave You
opened in third place with an estimated $3.9 million. On the same weekend two years ago, Warner Bros. got a similar result from Trouble with the Curve ($4.2 million), which also had a family drama angle to it. For the three-day weekend, This is Where I Leave You will likely earn less than $12 million.

After leading the way last weekend, No Good Deed plummeted 67 percent to $2.95 million. That’s a steeper drop than The Call (57 percent) and Obsessed (64 percent) at the same point. For the weekend, No Good Deed could wind up below $9 million.

Dolphin Tale 2
rounded out the Top Five with $2.14 million. That’s off 50 percent from last Friday; in comparison, the first Dolphin Tale only dipped 32 percent at the same point. Dolphin Tale 2 is now on track to earn less than $9 million this weekend.

Guardians of the Galaxy
added $1.38 million on Friday (off 35 percent). On Sunday, Guardians will pass Iron Man 2 to become the fourth highest-grossing Marvel Cinematic Universe title.

A Friday estimate for Tusk is not currently available.

Weekend Projections

1. The Maze Runner – $30 million
2. A Walk Among the Tombstones – $14 million
3. This is Where I Leave You – $11.5 million
4. No Good Deed – $9 million
5. Dolphin Tale 2 – $8.5 million
6. Guardians of the Galaxy – $5.5 million
