Ready or not, the Entourage movie is coming. The latest trailer has arrived, boasting parties, booze, yachts and lots of famous faces. It’s like a Where’s Waldo? of cameos in there, from Bob Saget to George Takei to Liam Neeson to…Bob Saget. But enough name-dropping, already. This movie also has a story to tell, and that story is about Vinnie Chase, director.
Liam Neeson may act like a total badass when he's in movies like ‘Taken’, but he's not above poking a little fun at his new tough guy persona. The actor appeared in a new Super Bowl commercial for Clash of Clans and delivered a monologue that sounds as if it were taken (no pun intended) from one of his shoot-em-up action movies.
The former CIA operative turned full-time rescuer of his perpetually kidnapped family at the center of the ‘Taken’ series is famous for—as he put it to the men who took his daughter in the first film—a “particular set of skills” that make him “a nightmare” for bad guys. Here now is a partial list of the particular skills Bryan Mills—played by the 62-year-old Liam Neeson—displays in ‘Taken 3’:
Who would've thought that Liam Neeson would become a bad boy action star? Our favorite dad is back when "Taken 3" is released in theaters on Friday. I fully expect it to be big on action, explosions and Liam kicking butt.
It’s interesting that Universal is promoting ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ a film that is not funny, as a comedy. I suspect it has a lot to do with the human carnage we witness on screen being unbearable to watch, so the only way to desensitize an audience’s eyes to what they're about to witness is to somehow convince the viewer that what their about to see is a comedy – even though there is not one laugh to be had.
