Romance and anger collide in 'Third Person' trailer -- VIDEO

Paul Haggis, Oscar-winning writer and director of films like Million Dollar Baby and Crash, sticks with romance in his latest, Third Person.

The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, and Moran Atias, and is set in New York, Rome, and Paris. Everyone is paired off, and everyone is connected — think Love Actually, but dramatic. (Or Crash, minus racism?)

The film doesn’t have a release date for the U.S. yet, but premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the international trailer — complete with lots of Japanese title cards! — below:

Fox sets 'Wolverine' and 'Fantastic Four' release dates through 2018

It’s never too early to make movie plans. Especially when you’re a studio with a billion-dollar franchise at stake. 20th Century Fox, which has only recently cast its new Fantastic Four and has another X-Men movie out this summer, has announced release dates for Fantastic Four II, the next Wolverine standalone — and a mystery third Marvel film.

The rebooted Fantastic Four, with Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Miles Teller reportedly aboard, is scheduled for June 19, 2015, but Fox has already penciled in a sequel for July 14, 2017.

Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, who stars in this May’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, will return in another standalone movie, targeted for March 3, 2017. His last solo effort, 2013′s The Wolverine, grossed $414.8 million globally. That film’s director, James Mangold, is attached to the next sequel as well. (Another X-Men all-star movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, will open May 27, 2016.) READ FULL STORY

Critical Mass: Does Liam Neeson's 'Non-Stop' crash or soar?

January and February are traditionally regarded as dumping grounds for Hollywood’s lesser movies — the time when studios release the films not good enough for Oscar season and not promising enough for the summer box office. But with a surprising string of winter action hits, beginning with 2009′s Taken, that window might also be termed Neeson Season. “Neeson’s imposing 6’4” frame, haunted eyes, and knack for snapping limbs like celery stalks have elevated throwaways such as Unknown, The Grey, and Taken 2 into something more than the sum of their parts,” writes EW’s Chris Nashawaty. “They may not all be memorable films, but they’d be utterly forgettable without the high-gloss patina of a class that he gives them.” Twenty years after playing Oskar Schindler, the 61-year-old Irish actor is the star of his own B-movie sub-genre, and in Non-Stop, he gets to take the gimmick to new heights.

Neeson plays Bill Marks, a sad air marshal whose transatlantic flight from New York to London is interrupted by a text message threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes unless $150 million is wired to an offshore account. Everyone is a suspect, including Marks. Might it be the pretty businesswoman with the window seat, played by Julianne Moore? The macho NYPD cop played by House of Cards‘ Corey Stoll? The other air-marshal on board, played by Anson Mount? Or is it one of the other dozen or so possible suspects? Suspense!

Reuniting Neeson with his Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra, the film also stars Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery as a skeptical flight attendant, with 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o also making a before-she-was-famous appearance.

Click below to see what some of the nation’s leading film critics are saying about Non-Stop before buckling in for Neeson’s latest.

Liam Neeson in 'Taken,' plus 'Speed,' plus 'Flightplan' = 'Non-Stop' trailer -- VIDEO

non-stop.jpg

Liam Neeson, whose last major movie airplane ride literally fed him to the wolves, takes flight again for Non-Stop, his latest kick-ass action movie. Here, he plays a U.S. Air Marshal flying from New York to London who is either being set up by a devious fellow passenger or is simply certifiably crazy.

His Unknown director, Spaniard Jaume Collet-Serra, is behind the camera, but what makes this bumpy thrill ride somewhat tantalizing is the eclectic supporting cast. Julianne Moore has to be flying first-class, of course, and her character might know more than she’s letting on. But then there’s Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery, and 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o as the flight attendants. House of Card‘s Corey Stoll gets tasered! Flying the plane is Linus Roache, who Neeson bragged about killing in Batman Begins! Karma at 40,000 feet, Neeson!
