Liam Neeson might be dismissive of the idea of a third “Taken” movie, but that doesn’t mean that the Irish actor is done with ass-kicking. 2013 sees Neeson reteam with his “Unknown” director Jaume Collet-Serra for “Non-Stop,” an airborne thriller which sees Neeson play an air marshall who receives a text message telling him that unless a $150 million ransom is paid, a passenger will die every twenty minutes. Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Nate Parker, Scoot McNairy and Corey Stoll are among the suspects, and a first look at Neeson in the film has arrived, courtesy of EW. Yes, it’s a man with a gun on a plane.
Elsewhere, another first look has arrived, of Halle Berry in Brad Anderson‘s “The Call.” The Oscar-winning actress hasn’t had much luck on the big-screen of late, but Anderson can be responsible for some decent genre flicks like “The Machinist” and “Transsiberian,” so let’s hope that this thriller, about an emergency operator who has to confront a killer from her past to save a young girl, proves to be a return to form for both of them. Abigail Breslin and Michael Imperioli co-star, and it opens March 15th.
Thirdly, because you’ve all been waiting for it, an official image from “Grown Ups 2,” the sequel to Adam Sandler‘s 2010 cash cow has arrived, demonstrating that once again Sandler was able to assemble his pals, including David Spade, Chris Rock and Kevin James, for the chance to make free money not doing an awful lot. It decimates your local theater on July 12th. Almost as terrifying a prospect is “Mama,” the Guillermo Del Toro-produced horror film that toplines Jessica Chastain, and opens next week. A bunch of new images from that film have arrived too, courtesy (like most of the above) of Collider, and can be perused below.
