Liam Neeson introduces a new internet-only trailer for Taken 2, the film that features the continuing exploits of Neeson’s former black-ops character, whose family is once again the target of foreign tough guys who have a preoccupation with violence. And the trailer really pushes the idea that these movies are exploiting our human trend towards creating endless cycles of violence — you hurt my people, so I hurt yours, and you hurt mine again, and it never, ever ends.
From a movie producer’s standpoint, that’s a great thing — endless sequel possibilities! — but how will that play out in the film, when we as an audience want to watch some cheap, bone-cracking thrills? The thrills here look pretty good, too, but in the end will we all feel like we’re a part of that cycle of violence? Probably not, but follow Liam Neeson’s instructions and watch this trailer to begin the process of finding out. Read More »

You’re about to get a glimpse into the process of three projects in radically different stages of development. First there’s Neuromancer, based on the 1984 cyberpunk novel from William Gibson, which is in the early stages of pre-production.

It’s been quite some time since we got an update on Vincenzo Natali‘s adaptation of William Gibson‘s sci-fi novel Neuromancer, but if today’s news actually pans out it definitely seems worth the wait. Liam Neeson and Mark Wahlberg have reportedly just received offers for the lead roles, though it should be noted that nothing’s locked down at the moment. And even if and when it is, it’ll still be some time before we see the pair hacking into cyberspace, as the same story says the film is on track to hit theaters in 2014. More details after the jump.
