Taken – a sequel

February 1, 2010 Leave a comment

At a recent press conference for From Paris with Love , Luc Besson (the scriptwriter) was asked a few questions regarding his previous work on a little film – Taken. Given the films success the questions naturally moved onto the status of a second Taken film to which Besson exclaimed, “Yeah, I finished yesterday,” referring to the script.

Unfortunately there aren’t any more details, but I’m excited just by the prospect of more ass-kicking. The question is – what could Taken 2 possibly be about? This will obviously depend on whether or not Neeson returns to reprise his role as a former spook, bad-ass, over protective father. But either way, we can’t have another story about a dad trying to save his daughter from the sex trade.

A-Team – movie trailer

January 11, 2010 Leave a comment

One of our favourite series of yesteryear, the A-Team, is coming to the big screen this year. Due to be released in June, the film contains some pretty big names. Liam Neeson will be playing Hannibal, Bradley Cooper (from the Hangover) is Faceman, Quinton Jackson plays B.A. Baracus, our own Sharlto Copley plays Murdock and Jessica Biel stars as Lt. Carissa Sosa.

The film is being directed by Joe Carnahan (of Smokin’ Aces) and has another big name producing in Ridley Scott. The official trailer was released 2 days ago (sorry on the slow uptake) – click here to watch it. I can’t say that I’m super impressed after watching it. But let’s hope it turns out to be one of those trailers where they picked all the bad parts.
