We've all got jobs we'd rather not remember -- that summer working the French fry bin at McDonald's, that bad internship at our mom's company -- and even mega Hollywood success doesn't prohibit a superstar like Liam Neeson from feeling that exact same pain. The actor has had bad, strange jobs, too, but nothing that could quite compare to his very first movie role.

Director Scott Frank Wants You to Know 'Walk Among the Tombstones' is Not 'Taken 4'

Scott Frank, the director of ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones,’ wants you to know that, even though his movie stars Liam Neeson, this is not, as he puts it, ‘Taken 4.’ (Technically, ‘Taken 3’ hasn’t been released yet, but it’s probably safe if we skip ahead. The point is still taken.) And he’s right – a mystery set in 1999 against the backdrop of Y2K (of all things), ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ has a slower, brooding, almost noir feel to it that is not at all anything like, say, ‘Non-Stop.’ Yes, I can see why Frank wants to get the word out.

Liam Neeson stars in 'A Walk Among the Tombstones,' which is finally coming to the big screen and now there's a trailer to prove it. After a decade in development (at one point Harrison Ford and Joe Carnahan were attached), screenwriter/director Scott Frank is bringing the Lawrence Block novel to the big screen, and fortunately he has the perfect star for the material.

'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Review: The Most Important Movie Ever Made

It’s interesting that Universal is promoting ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ a film that is not funny, as a comedy. I suspect it has a lot to do with the human carnage we witness on screen being unbearable to watch, so the only way to desensitize an audience’s eyes to what they're about to witness is to somehow convince the viewer that what their about to see is a comedy – even though there is not one laugh to be had.

It's hard to not find something to admire about the new 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer. After all, director/star Seth MacFarlane could have rode the massive success of 'Ted' down far more accessible and surefire avenues, but nope, here he is, making an uber-violent western comedy. Even if you don't find his sense of humor humor amusing, you've got to cut him some slack for stepping far outside of Hollywood's comfort zone.

The world is a little more terrifying than usual these days. With Russian forces occupying Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the internet has already started throwing around references to World War III. Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to take something that has us terrified and make us laugh instead. The show's solution? Bring in Liam Neeson.

Straight Tooken: How Liam Neeson and an Older Generation Became Action Superstars

Since its inception, movies have starred the beautiful people. Young people. The kind of people you simply wouldn't see on every street corner. It's such a Hollywood cliche to discuss the film industry chewing up young stars and spitting them back out once they start to get up there in years, but it's only a cliche because it's happened enough times to take on truth.
But, there have been times in cinematic history where youth and beauty have taken a backseat to age age and experience. Every so often, we stop caring about traditional movie stars and start embracing something the folks who look like they've taken a beating. Sometimes, the older folks start to take over the spotlight and right now, we're living in the age of the Old Man Action Hero.
But why now?

'Non Stop' Review

The opening shot of 'Non-Stop' has Liam Neeson pouring whiskey in a coffee cup and stirring it with a toothbrush. He then reaches out to a photo of a young girl to stroke it with his fingertips. After this the phone rings and the caller ID reads 555. In other words, three of the biggest movie cliches, all in about sixty seconds.

We've been obsessively tracking 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' follow-up 'Star Wars Rebels' that we nearly forgot that the former's season 6 "Lost Missions" will hit Netflix in their entirety this March! To that end, the final season trailer has arrived, chock full of new 'Star Wars' mythology to pore over, including the major return of Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn!
