Nice timing, this. The same day Liam Neeson hits theaters in Taken 3 comes the first trailer for his next shoot-‘em-up. In Run All Night, the late-blooming action hero plays an over-the-hill hitman once known as the Gravedigger. Now better at draining whiskey bottles than his victims’ lifeblood, he is forced to get back in the game when his son (Joel Kinnaman) becomes a target. The erstwhile Gravedigger must choose between his crime family and the real family he abandoned years ago. “I’m coming after your boy with everything I got,” the hitman’s longtime best friend and mob boss (Ed Harris) tells him. “And when it’s done — and it will be done — then I’ll let you die.”
The first trailer for Chappie introduced us to the surprisingly adorable lead character, but the latest shows how rough life can be for a thinking, learning robot. The film — the latest from District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp — centers on a humanoid robot who gains sentience. And the new trailer shows the dark side of that development, as military forces attempt to put an end to the idea of an intelligent and aware machine, fearing what it might lead to. Based on these early trailers, Chappie looks like it will be a delightful blend of adorable and dark, but we’ll find out for sure soon enough — the movie is slated to premiere on March 6th.

Blumhouse Productions, with films like Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister under their belt, have since proven to master the art of micro-budget filmmaking that yield profitable turnaround, all while salvaging the genre film, which has increasingly lost its commercial popularity throughout the years.

Director Andrew Niccol who has given the world films like Lord of War andGattaca in the past presents the trailer for his latest, Good Kill, which finds a unique twist on the action/war genre.

If you thought the explosive conclusion to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” was an elaborate physical stunt involving Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, and three life-size hellicarriers crashing into Washington D.C. buildings, think again! I mean it looked good, but c’mon, Marvel isn’t going to build a billion dollar flying aircraft carrier and drive it into a skyscraper. You’re crazy.
