Yup, if you like seeing Liam Neeson save the day all over again, Hollywood sequel machine is currently cooking up ‘Taken 3′ and judging by the box-office trend, we might be seeing a fourth and fifth film, assuming Liam Neeson isn’t wheelchair bound by then, of course.
We should note that the first two films in the series have earned roughly $600 million and considering the combined production budget for the films was $70 million, that’s an amazing return for the big-dogg-producers.
As for Maggie Grace, let’s hope this latest script calls for a vacation scene featuring Maggie showing off her bikini body. A bedroom scene would also go a long way in keeping die-hard ‘Taken’ fans entertained.
The annual television festival 2014 PaleyFest is currently going down in Los Angeles, which included a “Lost” 10th anniversary reunion over the weekend at the Dolby Theatre. I know we already featured her in our daily Catwalks, but seeing how she was the hottest one at the event, we had to shine a spotlight on the unappreciated actress. Needless to say, Hollywood producers & directors need to get their act together and cast this chick for upcoming blockbusters! I don’t care if she’s 30 already, damn it! She looks exactly

Produced by & starring the one & only Brad Pitt, “Killing Them Softly” is the latest film by director Andrew Dominik. The film, which already has a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is based on the 1974 novel “Cogan’s Trade” by George V. Higgins.

Besides Brad Pitt, the deep cast also features Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, and Richard Jenkins. The story revolves around a “professional enforcer Jackie Cogan (Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high-stakes, mob-protected poker game.” (Wiki)

Just like the 15 other premieres over the past few days, “Twilight – Breaking Dawn 2” held a fashionable screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in lower Manhattan. The event was hosted by The Hollywood Reporter & Samsung Galaxy in conjunction with The Cinema Society, so it’s nice to see the film is raking in some cash from other avenues besides just selling tickets at the box-office. The numbers haven’t come in yet, but the ‘Twilight’ finale will probably set a few records before it’s all over. Yay for all the producers who just got a little bit richer. Bastards.
So, did anybody catch the movie last night or what? In the name of creating useless filler, we’re obligated to ask…
