    The Grey—movie review

    Liam Neeson is one of those actors who validates a film by his mere presence in it. Sure enough, he brings gravitas and credibility to this survival thriller set in the snowy wilderness of Alaska. I wish he’d also brought along a better script.

    Joe Carnahan Wants Liam Neeson To Play Blake Morrow In 'Nemesis'; Old 'Dark Knight Rises' Rumor Gains New Heat

    To call Oscar winner Liam Neeson's recent surge of genre material something new would be to forget that many years ago, he starred in Sam Raimi's "Darkman" as the titular hero, and also suited up for George Lucas' "Star Wars" prequel trilogy. The only thing that has c...

    Review: 'The Grey' Pits Stock Characters Against Cartoon Wolves

    It wasn’t long ago that Liam Neeson was considered a prestigious name in film. Though his early career was peppered with genre roles, “Schindler’s List” put him on the map as an awards-friendly leading man. But in the past few years, Neeson has reinvented himself once again, into the hardest of men,...

    'Wrath of the Titans' Trailer Debuts

    Warner Bros, not content to merely satisfy fanboys with the awesome new "Dark Knight Rises" trailer, has also unleashed a new tease for a sequel that almost no one demanded: "Wrath of the Titans," the follow-up to 2010's abysmal 3D "Clash of the Titans" remake. And while we're not necessarily excite...

    Ricky Gervais Returns As Globes Host; Celebrate With This Liam Neeson Video

    Hard to believe, but now that Ricky Gervais has been announced as the returning host,  The Golden Globes are much more relevant than the Oscars – in the worlds of media and television if not film. Bringing Gervais back after his irreverent turn last time was always an inspired idea, but c...

    Nick Cassavetes Replaces Liam Neeson In Reshot 'Hangover 2' Cameo

    So far what we've seen from the highly anticipated sequel "The Hangover Part II" hasn't impressed in the slightest. The first trailer feels like a warmed-over rehash of everything from the first film but simply transplanted to Thailand. But if anything, Todd Phillips is determined to get the small role of the Bangkok tattoo artist right. First he had planned for Mel Gibson to take the part, but objections from the cast (mostly Zach Galifianakis) put the kibosh on that. Next, Liam Neeson was called up, but as Phillips readies the film for a Memorial Day release on a tight schedule, he still didn't have the scene he wanted and now someone else ...
