Much in the same way that John McClane continues to have extremely bad days that involve having to thwart all manner of terrorist, it now looks like Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills is doomed to have to deal with kidnapping over and over and over again. In this trailer for Taken 2, he and the family take a vacation to Istanbul. But before they can take in the food and culture, they’re attacked by the dad of the bad guys from the first film. Jeez. You electrocute one Albanian sex trafficker to dust and indiscriminately murder the rest of his ring and suddenly YOU’RE the bad guy.

If those sex traffickers had real dads, this vacation would have gone off without a hitch.

Guy Pearce Is Captain Sarcastic In ‘Lockout’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/guy-pearce-is-captain-sarcastic-in-lockout-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/guy-pearce-is-captain-sarcastic-in-lockout-trailer/#comments Fri, 27 Jan 2012 14:00:08 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=243841 Admit it. This movie was written while drunk.

When the president‘s daughter is held hostage in an outer space prison, there’s only one man who can save her. But he’s a loose cannon. <—— Actual dialogue from this trailer. Possibly written while drunk?

Maggie Grace plays the president’s comely daughter who happens to be hanging out at an off-Earth prison when the inmates take over. And the only non-Liam Neeson guy who can save her is Guy Pearce. A wise-crackin’, butt-smokin’, one man wrecking machine whose gonna astronaut his way in and get her off that floating crowbar hotel. Lockout looks completely ridiculous. But also completely awesome. It’s the Con-Air sequel we’ve always wanted. Give me all the tickets.

In space, when you drop the soap, does the soap float in mid-air?

Casting Round-Up: Penelope Cruz, Thandie Newton, Jay Baruchel, And Maggie Grace http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-penelope-cruz-thandie-newton-and-jay-baruchel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-penelope-cruz-thandie-newton-and-jay-baruchel/#comments Thu, 07 Apr 2011 00:45:45 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205801 Woody Allen, Tyler Perry and David Cronenberg will direct them. In different projects, though I'd be curious to know what the six of them would accomplish together.

It’s time for another casting round-up, cowpokes. We sat ourselves down in front of studio lots, waited fer critters (celebrities) to walk out, hog tied ‘em, and asked them what parts they got. Here’s what y’all need to know:

PENELOPE CRUZ will team up with director Woody Allen once again, this time on a film set in Rome. There are no plot details yet, but the computer program I wrote says the odds are very high that it won’t be as good as earlier Woody Allen movies. (EW)

THANDIE NEWTON will play opposite Tyler Perry in his next film Good Deeds, which Perry will write and direct as well. The film is about a successful businessman who must choose between his rich fiancée and a down-on-her-luck single mother. Even if it’s bad, Newton can take comfort that it can’t be worse than Norbit. (TheWrap)

JAY BARUCHEL will join Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, and Paul Giamatti in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. Pattinson plays a billionaire who loses everything he has in one day, including his new wife. Bad things happening to Pattinson, I can get on board with. Baruchel plays the original founder and conscious at Pattinson’s company. (Deadline)

MAGGIE GRACE will star alongside Liam Neeson in Taken 2, produced by Luc Besson. And yes, the will-he-or-won’t-he-tension of whether Neeson would take on Taken 2 has been resolved in the affirmative. Eight-time “Namey” award winner Olivier Megaton will direct. (Deadline) (Collider)

CBS Films has dropped a new red band trailer for Faster. It’s directed by George Tillman Jr. and stars Dwayne “Don’t Call Me The Rock Anymore” Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino, Maggie Grace, and Moon Bloodgood.

Looks like there are plenty of brutal head shots as an ex-con drives, I’m going to assume fast, throughout the city knocking off the gang members that killed his brother ten years prior. Why anyone would ever f*ck with Dwayne’s family is beyond me. I would just assume once he’s let out of prison I’m dead.

Check out the NSFW trailer after the jump…

Maggie Grace To Catfight Kristen Stewart In ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/maggie-grace-to-catfight-kristen-stewart-in-twilight-breaking-dawn/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/maggie-grace-to-catfight-kristen-stewart-in-twilight-breaking-dawn/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Someone tell this girl how chairs work. Take off your press-ons, ladies. Things are about to get rowdy. Taken takee Maggie Grace has been cast as Bella's nemesis Irina in Twilight: Breaking Dawn. My girlfriend hasn't updated me yet on the next installment so I'll let Deadline do the honors: Irina is a member of the Denali coven, considered cousins to the Cullen clan as the only other "vegetarian" vampire group. When Irina blames the Cullens for the death of her lover, her actions set in motion a terrifying chain of events. And by terrifying they mean sparkly. The film is being directed by Bill Condon and released in two parts because that means more money. The first part comes out November 18, 2011 and the second part November 16, 2012. After that, Twihards dismember a highly populated metropolis.

Maggie Grace Joins Luc Besson’s ‘Lockout’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/maggie-grace-joins-luc-bessons-lockout/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/maggie-grace-joins-luc-bessons-lockout/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Space prison is much like Earth prison. Maggie Grace and Luc Besson last worked together on Taken, which Besson produced and co-wrote and Grace starred in as Liam Neeson's stupid daughter who shares cabs with strange Frenchman just because they smile at her. Now Deadline reports that they're reteaming for Lockout, a film with one of the coolest loglines I've heard in a long time: Guy Pearce is attached to play a man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. He's offered his freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter (Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates. He has to save her from a space prison riot? Awesome! Prison riots in general kick-ass, as evidenced by Face/Off, but imagine what one would look like with zero-gravity, once the device in the film that sustains gravity inevitably gets shut off. If they cast Charles S. Dutton, who's familiar with space prison from Alien 3 and Earth prison from real life, this film is sure to blow up bigger than Taken. I can hear Guy Pearce saying the lines now... "I will find you. And I will kill you. In space." Good luck.

The Faster teaser trailer has Tokyo drifted onto the scene. It’s nice to see Dwayne Johnson shedding his tooth fairy wings and picking up a gun. He should only kick ass from now on and stop these movies where he gets into embarassing situations with nine-year-olds.

The film follows an ex-con who sets out to avenge his brother’s death after they were double-crossed during a heist years ago. It also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Maggie Grace, Moon Bloodgood, and Carla Gugino. That’s a whole lotta sexy for one movie. The women must have joined together at some point to fend off Billy Bob’s forceful advances.

Faster skids into theaters Novembe 24, 2010.

Check out the teaser after the jump…
