Universal Pictures Liam Neeson‘s recent career resurgence as a mature action star has been moving along at a fast clip these past few years, and one constant through films like Taken, Taken 2 and Non-Stop (aside from the fisticuffs, respectable budgets and boffo box-office) has been his characters’ penchant for talking tough on a cell phone. The talk mostly consists of warnings, threats and promises for the evil-doers on the other end of the line, but it has quickly become part of his invincible hard-ass repertoire. A Walk Among the Tombstones challenges that persona in many ways.

Although the trailers and other marketing materials being utilized to sell "A Walk Among the Tombstones" will have you believing that it's another run-of-the-mill Liam Neeson thriller, it is not. The movie is intricate and beautifully done, with one of the finer Neeson performances in recent memory and a twisty- turny crime movie plot (based on a Lawrence Block novel of the same name) and nary a superhero in sight.

Briefly: After scripting the successful reboot of Godzilla this past summer, Deadline reports writer Max Borenstein has been brought back to Legendary Pictures to script Godzilla 2, which has already been given a release date of June 8th, 2018. That's pretty far out, mainly since director Gareth Edwards has a Star Wars spin-off to direct before he returns to the King of Monsters, but it's good to hear that Legendary is getting Borenstein to work on the script right away.

Joe Carnahan shot a film called Stretch last year, with Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Patrick Wilson, and Brooklyn Decker in the cast. Originally set to be released by Universal, it’s not your average studio movie — for instance, that’s Chris Pine in the film, above. Pine’s character is a billionaire who has a shady deal in mind, and recruits the main character of the movie, a chauffeur played by Patrick Wilson, to drive him around as he gets things in motion. Carnahan himself has said it’s a weird movie, and it has gone through a bit of a weird phase.
Rawwwwwwwwr! This summer saw "Godzilla" come stomping back into theaters under the stewardship of "Monsters" director Gareth Edwards, to enormous success: the film made $200 million domestically, and over $500 Million worldwide, immediately launching a new franchise (the second film is due for release in 2018, once Edwards is done with his "Star Wars" spin-off, which, like his first two movies, will hopefully focus on two monsters trying to fuck each other). But the film got a more mixed reaction from critics and audiences.
