The new action-thriller with star Liam Neeson (Taken 3, A Walk Among The Tombstones) is opening in theaters tomorrow from director Juame Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Orphan). The two filmmakers have worked on several previous projects together, including Unknown (2011) and last year’s Non-Stop; this time out Neeson stars as mob-hitman Jimmy Conlon, who is approached by his long-time friend and mob-boss, Shawn MaGuire, when the former kills the latter’s son and wants to exact justice in a game of you-killed-my-son-so-I’m-gonna-kill-yours. The story comes from screenwriter Brad Ingelsby (The Dynamiter, Out of the Furnace) and co-stars Oscar-nominee Ed Harris (The Abyss, Apollo 13), Joel Kinnaman (Safe House, RoboCop), Boyd Holbrook (The Skeleton Twins, Gone Girl), Bruce McGill (Cinderella Man, Lincoln), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Men In Black). Check out the trailer here on MADE, then see it in theaters this Friday.
Fans of the hit series Breaking Bad on AMC can now tune in for the new spin-off drama Better Call Saul from writing partners and Breaking Bad creators Vince Gilligan (The X-Files, Hancock) and Peter Gould (Double Dragon, Too Big To Fail). The series stars Emmy-winner Bob Odenkirk (Saturday Night Live, Nebraska) back in his role of Saul Goodman in the time before the character was Saul Goodman. Instead we see him as Jimmy McGill, a young lawyer trying to make ends meet but lacking in the confidence and self-assurance of Saul Goodman. Also back from Breaking Bad is Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, the former cop-turned-muscle-man under the employee of Gus, plus new-comers Rhea Seehorn (Whitney, Franklin & Bash), Patrick Fabian (General Hospital, The Last Exorcism), Michael McKean (Clue, Planes Trains & Automobiles), and Michael Mando (The Far Cry Experience, Orphan Black). The series is already three episodes in, so you should check out On-Demand if you need to catch up, then tune into AMC on Monday nights at 9pm/central.
