Spotlight: Liam Neeson - The Unexpected Movie Star

Liam Neeson in The Grey
This weekend, audiences will get the chance to see Liam Neeson fight a pack of hungry wolves in order to say alive in “The Grey” from director Joe Carnahan. Though he has become a worldwide action star with films like “Taken” and “Unknown,” 15 years ago the Irish-born former amateur boxer was better known for dramas like “Schindler’s List” and “Michael Collins.” That’s not to say he takes the craft of acting any less seriously now than he did back then. He is still as talented and charismatic as ever, only now he seems to be having a lot more fun.

So how did Neeson go from being a serious ...

Two Jews' Review 'The Grey' And Feel The Power Of The Wolf (Video)

The Grey
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: It takes a lot for a film to truly scare me.

The story is simple. A group of sup...

'The Grey' Slammed By Wolf Conservation Group

The Grey
Liam Neeson's new survival thriller The Grey has come under fire from officials at an animal conservation group, who claim the movie's portrayal of wolves as violent killers is "fantasy".

The Schindler's List actor plays part of a group of men stranded in Alaska after a plane crash and forced to survive on their wits as a pack of wolves hunts them down.

However, the winter wilderness drama has failed to impress chiefs at Wolf Conservation Center.

Managing director Maggie Howell tells the New York Post, "Wolves don't hunt humans - they actually shy away from them."

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
I loved last week’s Steven Soderbergh movie “Haywire.” It’s a visually stunning picture with cool music, and a strong, sexy female protagonist to boot. For elaboration on my thoughts, check out my review, if you haven’t already.

Dropping into theaters this week is the frosty Liam Neeson thriller “The Grey,” the high-rise standoff “Man on a Ledge,” the Glenn Close period piece “Albert Nobbs,” the Katherine Heigl action comedy “One for the Money,” the historical drama “In Darkness,” and the foreign drama “Declaration of War.”

Look out later this week for my interview with “Man on...

Moviemaker Joe Carnahan urged Liam Neeson to channel his grief over the death of his wife Natasha Richardson for an emotional scene in new movie The Grey.

In a crucial scene, his character pens a heart-wrenching letter to his loved one - and Carnahan suggested Neeson should think of his late wife Richardson to summon up the appropriate emotions.

He tells Empire magazine, "There's a letter that Ott...
