It’s looking like another somewhat dreary week in terms of the quality of new releases, as we have two more action films that are a little lacking in the plot development department. So, buckle your seatbelts (that joke will be funnier later when you see what movies came out today, I promise), and let’s get to it.
thewrap.com – Liam Neeson has taken time out of his promotional tour for “Non-Stop” to film a small role in the “Entourage” movie. The actor was photographed on set filming a scene with Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold and director Doug Ellin’s signature casting move — gorgeous extras. Neeson likely plays himself in the movie, which is currently filming in Los Angeles, though the context in which he’ll appear remains unclear. 1 week 3 days ago via jackiechan
cinemablend.com – In 2011, Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra teamed up with Taken's Liam Neeson for the mystery thriller Unknown. It was a promising collaboration that had the pair eager to reunite. So when producer Joel Silver presented them a script about a harried air marshal sucked into a mysterious terrorist plot aboard an international flight, it seemed the perfect opportunity. 1 week 5 days ago via donnieyen

The Lego Movie won't kick off its wide release until this weekend, but it's already benefiting from some terrific word of mouth (and a growing stack of positive reviews), and execs at Warner Bros. have apparently already seen everything they needed to see before greenlighting a sequel.

Neeson will return for a third installment in the Bryan Mills' skills saga (for a reported $20 million paycheck) which saw him rescue his kidnapped daughter in Pierre Morel's 2008 original, only to be taken himself in Olivier Megaton's 2012 follow-up. 4 weeks 6 days ago via jetli
