A Walk Among the Tombstones trailer

It seems like a film adaptation of Lawrence Block‘s novel A Walk Among the Tombstones has been in the offing for a very long time. We’ve seen Block’s Matt Scudder character on film before, played by Jeff Bridges in Eight Million Ways to Die. But now Liam Neeson takes on the character for an adaptation of Block’s 1992 novel.  Scott Frank directs, and this adaptation looks as if it will be very faithful to the tone and grim purpose of Block’s novel. It’s pretty bleak stuff, with Neeson-as-Scudder hired to help a less than upstanding guy find the men who killed his wife. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

Third Person trailer

If Valentine’s Day (or Love Actually, or New Year’s Eve, or He’s Just Not That Into You) were reimagined as a brooding drama instead of a fluffy comedy, it might look kind of like Paul HaggisThird Person. The drama follows three intersecting tales, each featuring a couple at a crossroads.

In Paris, a recently separated novelist (Liam Neeson) and a clever journalist (Olivia Wilde) are engaging in an affair. Over in Rome, an American businessman (Adrien Brody) is maybe being duped by a beautiful local (Moran Atias). And across the Atlantic, two exes (Mila Kunis and James Franco, giving us the Oz the Great and Powerful reunion we didn’t ask for) are battling over parental custody in New York City.

The first Third Person trailer has just hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.

Taken 2 side

Taken transformed Liam Neeson from respected dramatic actor to white-hot action star in 2008. But that transition could’ve come a lot sooner had Neeson accepted a certain job in the ’90s.

In a recent interview, Neeson revealed he’d turned down the iconic role of James Bond in what turned out to be Goldeneye, for the most un-Bond-like of reasons. Find out why after the jump.
