Director J.A. Bayona isn’t yet a household name, but don’t expect that to last much longer. He was the first person to cast Tom Holland, our new Spider-Man, in a leading role. His next film is the sequel to Jurassic World. And his new movie, A Monster Calls, opens wide on Friday.
With the holidays right around the corner, odds are you are feeling a bit stressed out. Maybe you’re busy at work, or worried about shopping, travel, world events, and a million other things. Well, let the sweet, soothing sounds of Liam Neeson make it all better.
Though A Monster Calls is about a child and a talking tree, it’s more layered, emotional, and powerful than most movies starring adults. The film is a tale of loss, filled with life lessons anyone, children included, will find challenging and heartbreaking.
Whether or not J.A. Bayona’s new film A Monster Calls ends up being any good, we can say one thing for sure: it’s going to be beautiful. And, let’s be honest, if this trailer is any indication, it’ll probably be exceedingly good, too.
A truly great fantasy fairy tale movie is a rare thing. In the ‘80s, films like The Dark Crystal, The Neverending Story and Labyrinth made the cut. Guillermo del Toro’s early films, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, are worthy additions. And next year, we may need to add a new one to the pantheon.
Darkman — the tale of a sweet scientist who becomes a vigilante, hiding his scarred face behind bandages and masks — came out in 1990, showcasing the talents of up-and-comers Sam Raimi and Liam Neeson. It was the perfect blend of superhero tale and monster movie. And it’s only gotten better with age.
When did this happen? When did every week bring news that another actor was appearing in Ted 2? By the end of the year, dead people are going to announce their cameos.

The movie version of William Gibson's ground-breaking book Neuromancer is apparently moving forward — the production company GFM Films put up a page devoted to the film, including this piece of new concept art.
If you had any doubt that Battleship wasn't going to be popcorn-binging highly watchable summertime garbage, let these eight clips from the movie convince you.
Every summer, there's at least one huge-budget film that squanders $200 million or so on boring action, unfunny jokes, weird racial stereotypes and bloated special effects sequences. And apparently this summer, it's officially Battleship. The "wet Transformers" movie has come out a whole month early in the U.K., which…

Plus, find out what's it like working with Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes on an action flick. Some spoilers ahead!
Without a doubt, the most underrated ghost movie on this planet is the delightful comedy/horror flick High Spirits. The film follows a group of misfit hotel employees (led by Peter O'Toole) who try to attempt to save their ancient castle hotel by advertising it as the most haunted castle on the emerald isle.
Watch Liam Neeson make his big holographic debut, as the new narrator for the The War of the Worlds musical, replacing the voice of Richard Burton.

It doesn't have Samuel L. Jackson, but it's got Brooklyn Decker and explosions. Well played! And Liam Neeson is pretty much always bad ass, even in bad movies.
Qui-Gon Jinn may be dead, but he's not gone. Liam Neeson is bringing back the Master Jedi on Star Wars: Clone Wars by voicing the CG character (who appears in Obi-Wan's visions). Watch his return now!
On paper, the indie flick After.Life sounds terrific. Liam Neeson plays an undertaker who may be crazy, or may be a supernatural creature who helps the restless dead like Christina Ricci accept their fates. Unfortunately it feels rote. Spoilers!
If everyone thinks you're dead, what's to stop Liam Neeson from burying you alive? At least that's what this mad-scientist funeral director tries to pull with Christina Ricci, after she wakes up. Check out After.Life's first trailer.
