Liam Neeson spotted out in Tribeca, New York City
Things are finally quieting down for Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson). After the ex-special forces operative tracked down and returned his daughter (Maggie Grace), then his wife (Famke Janssen) following their captures, Mills is now settling into a normal life in Los Angeles. But when his wife is suddenly murdered by an unknown villain, Mills finds himself accused and ends up on the run from the LAPD. Inspector Franck Dotzler (Forest Whitaker) heads up the investigation against Mills and orders him to give himself up. But Mills is not going down until he looks for his wife’s murderer, finds them, and kills them.

Liam Neeson returns for 'Taken 3', but it will be the last movie in the series.
Liam Neeson will reprise his role as retired CIA agent Bryan Mills in a third instalment of the Taken movies - set for January 9 - and the Irish actor has confirmed that it will be the final movie in the series.

This time, Mills is the hunted prey after he's framed for the murder of someone close to him.

Although the plot isn't particularly original, a darkly internalised tone makes this low-key thriller oddly compelling. It may be the usual serial killer nastiness, but it also pays attention to earthier themes like morality and the futility of revenge. Meanwhile, Liam Neeson is able to combine his more recent action-hero persona with his serious acting chops this time. And writer-director Scott Frank infuses the film with moody grit, quietly subverting each cliche of the genre.
The action picks up eight years after Matt (Neeson) stopped drinking and quit the police force, following a shootout that went horribly wrong. It's now 1999, and New York is in the grip of Y2K paranoia. Matt is working as an unlicensed private detective who uses word-of-mouth to find clients. So Matt is intrigued when one of his 12-step friends (Boyd Holbrook) introduces his brother Kenny (Dan Stevens), a wealthy drug trafficker whose wife was kidnapped and then murdered even though he paid the ransom. As Matt digs into the case, he realises that the two killers (David Harbour and Adam David Thompson) have a left a string of similar victims in their wake, and that the murders are connected. Meanwhile, Matt takes in homeless teen TJ (Brian "Astro" Bradley), an observant kid who helps him work piece together the clues. And together they try to figure out where the killers will strike next.
This story unfolds with a remarkably gloomy tone, combining horrific violence with introspective drama. This mixture can feel rather jarring, especially as it wallows in the nastier side of human existence. Every character is tortured in more ways than one, with lost loves, physical afflictions and internal demons. Even the smaller side roles are packed with detail, including Olafur Darri Olafsson's creepy cemetery worker and Sebastian Roche's frazzled Russian mobster. All of this adds texture to the film, a welcome distraction from the grisly central plot, which is never played as a mystery, but rather as an inevitability.

The movie based on James Dashner's novel looks set to beat Liam Neeson’s ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ for the box office top spot.
The Maze Runner is predicted to top the US box office this weekend, with estimated earnings of $24million. The young-adult thriller opened on Friday (September 20th) to mixed reviews, but it seems US moviegoers have chosen it this weekend over Liam Neeson’s latest offering, A Walk Among the Tombstones.
Dylan O'Brien leads the cast in The Maze Runner
Starring Dylan O'Brien of ‘Teen Wolf’ and ‘Skins’ Kaya Scoderlario, The Maze Runner is hoping to cash in on the popular young adult market, which made millions for franchises such as the Hunger Games and Twilight.
On the eve of the release of 'A Walk Among Tombstones', Liam Neeson has spoken about working with U2's Bono on a new movie.
Liam Neeson has revealed that he and Irish musician Bono have been working on a movie idea for six years. The actor and U2 singer who have been friends for many year are developing a story inspired by the Irish show-band phenomenon of the Seventies.
Liam Neeson in 'A Walk Among Tombstones'
"We chat, or with him [Bono] a lot of the time I just listen," Neeson told the Independent ahead of the release of his new movie A Walk Among Tombstones, "He's a wonderful man. He's got an idea for a script which we've been working on for the past six years."

Liam Neeson has scored with another taut thriller.
It's difficult to knock Liam Neeson and the transformation for his career. He wasn't Matthew McConaughey. He wasn't being typecast, particularly. He wasn't getting bogged down with romantic-comedies, or throwaway thrillers.
Liam Neeson in 'A Walk Among Tombstones'
Stellar turns in Les Miserables, Michael Collins, The Endurance and Gangs of New York led to an incredible Oscar-nominated in performance in Kinsey. And then a formulaic, French produced action movie came along, Taken. Based on a script by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, the movie starred Neeson as a retired CIA operative from their elite Special Activities Division who sets off to track down his teenage daughter after she is kidnapped. It made almost $200 million more than its production budget and proved Neeson still had the on-screen presence to delight as a Hollywood leading man.

Which films were on the brink of a completely different lead star?
With Robert Downey Jr fitting so perfectly as likeable irritant Tony Stark, Christian Bale slipping so easily into the tortured billionaire psyche of Bruce Wayne and Daniel Day-Lewis transforming himself into the epitome of Abraham Lincoln, it's hard to believe that for all of the above roles, there were some serious previous contenders. But contenders there were and some of the not entirely savoury.
Tom Cruise as Iron Man
The pint-sized action hero made it his mission impossible to kick ass as IMF agent, Ethan Hunt, but could he have romanced Pepper Potts in quite the same way as Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man? It seems like we very nearly found out with Cruise at one point in serious contention to play the arrogant but entertaining genius.

Matt Scudder gave up his high-flying job with the NYPD after accidentally shooting dead a civilian while chasing away a group of criminals trying to rob the bar he was drinking in. Now working as an unlicensed private detective, this recovering alcoholic is enlisted by a man who wants Matt to find the kidnappers who took his ransom and murdered his wife. These kidnappers are no amateurs, however; they very meticulously choose their victims and it isn't long before they discover that Matt is looking for them. He may be used to taking down some pretty ruthless criminals, but he's never faced anything like this before and is constantly feeling as though he is one step behind his opposition. To nab criminals like these, he can't work within the law himself - but will that turn him into something he's tried so hard to avoid?

After the success of Ted, Seth MacFarlane gives himself his first leading-man role in this hilarious but overlong comedy-Western. The film is clearly a passion project, as it reveals MacFarlane's love of the genre with knowing jokes in between the usual gross-out humour. But it also feels stretched rather thin, and would feel even funnier with a zippier pace and tighter story.
In 1882 Arizona almost anything can kill you. Albert (MacFarlane) is a sheep farmer who has very little respect in his tiny frontier town. His girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) has just dumped him and taken up with smug Moustachery manager Foy (Neal Patrick Harris). And his best pal Edward (Giovanni Ribisi) has issues of his own, determined to wait until marriage to have sex with his fiancee, the town's most popular prostitute Ruth (Sarah Silverman). Then a stranger rides in: Anna (Charlize Theron) is trapped in a marriage to the local outlaw Clinch (Liam Neeson) and needs a place to hide. And in Albert she finds the kind of nice guy she thought didn't actually exist in the West.
MacFarlane's most clever decision was to surround himself with terrific actors who can effortlessly play both comedy and drama. As a result he just about gets away with a performance that doesn't stretch him at all. Theron is especially good, bringing an offhanded humour to her scenes that grounds the entire film. She may roll her eyes at the bad jokes while laughing openly at the good ones, but she stays firmly in character, which makes her scenes with MacFarlane and Neeson crackle with all kinds of romantic energy.

Love is never uncomplicated and when a third person gets involved, it can make things even more difficult. Michael is an award-winning novelist who has left his wife for a much younger lover. He is in Paris finishing his latest book which eerily seems to reflect his own personal problems which get more intense by the day. Meanwhile, a dodgy businessman named Scott travels to Rome to get involved in a fashion design scam only to meet an attractive young woman named Monika. She reveals that she has finally been given the chance to see her daughter again but when the money she needs to see her is apparently stolen, Scott finds himself embroiled in a much deeper con. Then there's Julia, a former actress who has been refused contact with her child and is going through a serious legal battle to be able to hold her son again.
Continue: Third Person Trailer
Albert is a rather introverted sheep farmer who tries at all costs to avoid confrontation with the occasional gun-toting outlaw who may pass through the small Arizona town in which he lives. His reluctance to engage in any kind of combat has cost him his girlfriend, but on the upside, he's still alive - which is more than can be said for a large percentage of townspeople. There is danger is every turn and Albert is feeling a little low in confidence - that is, until the arrival of the town's feisty new resident Anna. She wants to show him how to aim and fire a loaded pistol and, generally, how to win a fight, which is just as well because one man is on his way over with the intention of dominating the town with his formidable reputation. Unfortunately for Albert, he's Anna's estranged husband and, with Albert having spent so much time with her, it is starting to look like he's finally run out of luck.

The Prophet has been in development for two years and Roger Allers, Salma Hayek and co. are finally (almost) ready to unveil the fruits of their labor.
Salma Hayek took to Cannes to show and promote The Prophet this weekend – her own creative baby, based onKhalil Gibran's philosophical novel. Hayek is producing the film, with Roger Allers co-directing with a long list of creatives, including Tomm Moore, Joan Gratz, Joann Sfar, Bill Plympton, Paul and Gaeton Brizzi, Michal Socha, Nina Paley and Mohammed Saeed Harib, each of whom was in charge of a separate thematic section of the animated flick.
Salma Hayek has a personal attachment to The Prophet.
As its producer, Hayek is very dedicated to The Prophet, not least because it’s a pet project of hers and one she associates with her childhood. She talked about it at Cannes, where the film had an in-progress screening this week.
Is James Cromwell playing 'The BFG'?
Oscar nominees Liam Neeson and James Cromwell are the early favourites to land the lead role in Steven Spielberg's The BFG. Towering Hollywood star Neeson is available at 6/1 with Paddy Power, while Cromwell - a character actor of the highest quality - is the frontrunner at 2/1.
Will James Cromwell Play The BFG?
Elsewhere, the UK's very own Stephen Merchant is in with a shout at 10/1, while Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams is at 20/1. David Hasselhoff could resurrect his acting career and is a 50/1 shot - which would be ridiculous - while Premier League football Peter Crouch is 250/1.

When this South African animated adventure embraces its unique setting and characters, it's visually stunning and a lot of fun. But it also tries to force everything into a trite Hollywood formula, unnecessarily adding clunky songs, goofy comedy sidekicks and big action set-pieces. Still, there's enough fresh storytelling and lively humour to keep us engaged, and some spectacular animation too.
It's set in the Great Karoo desert, where a herd of zebras has fenced off its own watering hole. But as a drought sets in, bullied half-striped zebra Khumba (voiced by Jake T. Austin) becomes worried about the animals outside. When he hears about a mythical pond that can restore his stripes and supply water to everyone, he leaves his best pal Tombi (AnnaSophia Robb) to take an epic trek across the desert. Along the way he picks up a variety of goofy travelling companions, including a hyena (Steve Buscemi), buffalo (Loretta Devine) and ostrich (Richard E. Grant). But he's also hunted by the vicious half-blind leopard Phango (Liam Neeson), who blames Khumba for his own hot-tempered misfortunes.
The animators far surpass the simplistic script with imagery that takes the breath away, from expansive landscapes to cleverly designed characters. And as the wacky sidekicks continually try to push the film over into slapstick silliness, the startlingly violent Phango reminds us of the darker side of nature as well as some deeper African cultural issues. This mix sometimes feels jarring, but that works in the film's favour. As do some inspired comical gags involving, for instance, a nutty sheep (Catherine Tate), a gang of hilariously agreeable meerkats and a herd of dumb-jock springboks.

NO dogs were saved
Remember when John Malkovic saved the life of a man who managed to slit his throat in the street? Well, it was reported that Liam Neeson apparently saved a stray dog when kids were throwing stones at it. This, however, has been denied by the star.
Liam Neeson didn't save a dog. He didn't save a dog.
Reports suggested the Non-Stop actor came across “Three gangbanger wannabe types who were throwing rocks at a stray they’d cornered up against a trash bin,” a source told ShowbizSpy.com.
Who would pass up the chance to be James Bond?
Who wouldn't want to be James Bond? Well it turns out there are a few in Hollywood who just weren't that enamoured with putting on a suit and become 007. Liam Neeson has just confessed that he turned down the role in order to marry wife Natasha Richardson, but what other Hollywood stars also gave Bond a no and WHY?

Liam Neeson's 'Non-Stop' topped the box-office during Oscars weekend.
While all eyes were on the 86th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday evening (March 2, 2014), box-office boffins were tapping away on their calculators to figure out who had reigned supreme at the theaters. Liam Neeson's latest thriller Non-Stop - which received decent to middling reviews last week - was top of the shop, taking $30 million between Friday and Sunday.
Liam Neeson in 'Non-Stop'
Neeson plays an air marshal who must stop a string of murders on an international flight. It's pretty standard fare from the Irish actor, though since Taken, Neeson has found that there's a huge appetite for his action-thrillers.
Continue reading: Forget The Oscars, Liam Neeson's 'Non-Stop' Has Topped The Box-Office
'Non-Stop' isn't the best film you'll ever see, and, surprisingly, not the worst...
Stripping down Non-Stop into the ingredients that make it gives a good indication as to what you should expect: Liam Neeson. Air Marshal. Crazed terrorist demanding money. 40,000 feet in the air. Gillian Anderson. Bomb. Cryptic text messages.
Liam Neeson doing what he does best 'bemused proffesional'
Sounds bad, no? Well it is, but – according to a bunch of critics – not as bad as you might think. We had this pinned down as a 13% stinker on Rotten Tomatoes, but would appear as though the review-aggregating site has totted the reviews up to the sum of 59%, at the time of writing anyway.
It's rushed, implausible, convoluted and immensely fun, say critics.
We already know that Liam Neeson is good under pressure – or his characters are, anyway. Now we’re about to see what happens when you put the man up in the air. In his latest film, Neeson plays an air marshall on a non-stop flight, which (of course) gets hijacked. The critics are already (mostly) in love with Non-Stop and with Neeson’s performance in particular.
Believable this is not, but the critics are in love anyway.
“Non-Stop is a crisp, efficient thriller that benefits greatly from the intangibles Neeson can be counted on to supply,” says the LA Times’ Kenneth Turan, noting the tangible urgency in Neeson’s acting, as well as Jaume Collet-Serra’s expert direction.

With a premise not much more believable than Snakes on a Plane, this slickly made thriller entertains us from start to finish by never flinching once. It may be utterly ridiculous, but it's played with full-on dedication by a gifted cast and a filmmaker who knows how to ramp up tension out of thin air, so to speak. Yes, it's utterly idiotic, but it's so much fun that we want a sequel even before this film crashes to the ground.
Relapsed alcoholic Air Marshal Bill (Neeson) has far too much personal baggage as he heads to work on a trans-Atlantic flight. Still grieving over his daughter's death as he drinks a bit of coffee with his whiskey, his hopes of a quiet flight are soon dashed when he receives an in-flight text threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes if he doesn't pay a huge ransom. So he kicks into action-man gear. But things start getting seriously surreal as he struggles to find anyone on the plane who doesn't look shifty. He seeks assistance from steely stewardess Nancy (Dockery) and too-helpful passenger Jen (Moore). But everyone begins to wonder if Bill might be the real villain here.
Filmmaker Collet-Serra packs the screen with red herrings, as all of the passengers fire wary glances at each other, moan about the general chaos of the flight and do all of those stupid things that make air travel so tiresome. The only thing missing is a screaming baby. Not that you'd hear it above the crazed panic this cat-and-mouse situation induces. It's so frantic that we barely have time to wonder how someone could get on a plane with a briefcase full of cocaine. Or a bomb. So we just hang on as the turbulence escalates.

The actor finally finds the courage to open up on the death of his wife.
Liam Neeson has broken his silence five year after the tragic death of his wife Natasha Richardson in an emotionally raw interview on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper. Richardson, the English actress, died on the 18th March 2009 after she hit her head in a skiing accident in Quebec. The Taken star was the one who made the agonising decision to turn off her life support as she lay brain dead.
Liam Neeson Has Spoken About The Death Of His Wife, Natasha Richardson.
In the interview, Neeson guides Anderson around his upstate New York home and talks about the intense grief he has suffered in the aftermath of his loss. The 61 year-old film star also shared what must be one of his most painful memories, Natasha's final phone call to him after she'd had her accident. "I spoke to her and she said, 'Oh, darling. I've taken a tumble in the snow.' That's how she described it," Liam said.
Inventive visuals and a seriously deranged script make this animated adventure far more enjoyable than we expect, especially as it brings out the childish creativity in everyone watching. Filmmakers Lord and Miller are experts at finding offbeat comedy in the most surprising places (see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs or 21 Jump Street). And this movie is often jaw-droppingly entertaining.
It's set in a Lego city where construction worker Emmet (voiced by Pratt) follows instructions to the letter. Like everyone else, he has been lulled into complacency by President Business (Ferrell), whose inanely catchy pop songs (the insanely hummable Everything Is Awesome!) and mindless TV shows (Where Are My Pants?) keep people from thinking creatively. He's also concocting an insidious plan involving a secret weapon called the Kragle. Then Emmet inadvertently discovers the Piece of Resistance and is declared "The Special" by the underground rebel alliance led by Wyldstyle (Banks) and Vitruvius (Freeman). With help from Batman (Arnett), a patched-up pirate (Offerman) and a groovy kitty (Brie), they go off-grid to save their civilisation, pursued by the president's vicious enforcer (Neeson).
As the story spirals from the city to the Wild West and Cloud Cuckoo Land, it develops an insane, free-wheeling tone that can't help but spark our imaginations. And the sassy 3D animation adds to this by evoking surreal stop-motion classics like Gumby or The Magic Roundabout while referencing other movies and playing merrily with iconic characters. Hill, Smulders and Tatum turn up as a trio of frustrated superheroes, while Daniels and Williams offer a bit of Star Wars silliness. All of the vocal cast members dive into their characters with energy, bringing out the warped humour and pulling us into the action and even some emotional moments.

There's high anticipation for release of 'The Lego Movie'.
Danish company The Lego Group have partnered up with Warner Brothers for the first feature length Lego film, The Lego Movie, set to hit the big screen in 2014.
A child's imagination is what made Lego blocks what they were. They could make a spaceship, a Wild West shootout or even a pirate ship come to life; well, maybe for a few hours until the few remaining pieces left out were embedded in a parent's foot. Now it has reached a safer place for adults as the loveable figures make their way from the toy box onto the big-screen in 3D animation comes Warner Brothers production: 'The Lego Movie'. With a highly admirable voiceover cast of Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum and Elizabeth Banks, the film looks ready to be a 2014 BLOCK-buster sensation.

Albert is one of the more lucky men living in his doomed Arizona town, mainly because he hasn't yet died; quite a feat for a sheep farmer who can't fire a gun in a time where outlaws rule the West. After one failed confrontation on his part, he is promptly dumped by his girlfriend, but this doesn't prove to be a bad thing when an extremely attractive and feisty new resident shows up in the town. Albert agrees to show her around her new neighbourhood, while she decides to help him man-up and learn how to gun fight properly. It's just as well because he soon finds himself facing mortal peril at the arrival of her ruthless outlaw husband - and he's not the only one who'd rather avoid confrontation this time. With his new friend's encouragement, however, he tries to step-up and take charge of the situation - let's just hope his luck hasn't run out by now.
Following the success of his live action directorial debut 'Ted', 'Family Guy' creator Seth Macfarlane is back with western comedy 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' in which he stars, directs and co-wrote with Alec Sulkin an d Wellesley Wild ('Dads ', 'Ted', 'Family Guy'). The movie is set to be released in the UK on June 6th 2014.
Albert is a sheep farmer who, unlike most men in his small Arizona town, is unable to handle a gun and tries to avoid confrontation at every opportunity. He gets dumped by his girlfriend for his spinelessness - but as a passive individual, he's still one of the luckiest guys in his neighbourhood having so far avoided death. This is a town where the residents are constantly in danger at every corner, but Albert finds his inner strength at the arrival of an attractive and feisty new resident who is willing to death him how to fire a pistol and stand up to his adversaries. And it's just as well when a dangerous outlaw shows up and starts to try and run the town, revealing that he is the husband of Albert's new female friend. Could his luck be up this time?
Behold! The exciting new "punny" posters ahead of the western comedy's release.
A host of pun-tastic and risqué posters has been released ahead of the release of Seth Macfarlane's new comedy western, A Million Way To Die In The West. Starring Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, Liam Neeson, Charlize Theron, Giovanni Ribisi, and MacFarlane himself, the movie certainly pulls no punches when it comes to rounding up a killer cast.
MacFarlane Plays a Sheep Farmer Who's About To Receive The Courage Shake-Up He Needs When Charlize Theron Rolls Into Town.
As well as directing, co-writing and producing the comedy, Seth also takes on the role of cowardly sheep farmer Albert. After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend (Seyfried) leaves him for another man. However, the farmer hadn't counted on a mysterious and beautiful woman (Theron) riding into town, who helps him find his courage.
Surly is a short-tempered purple squirrel who's beginning to worry as the cold winter approaches and he has managed to store hardly any food for hibernation. The city streets offer little in the way of nourishment and so, desperate, he starts to search elsewhere. When he meets the town's other animals; including Buddy the rat, the self-important Mole, Grayson the grey squirrel and some rather intellectually challenged gophers; he discovers the world of Nutlantis in the form of Maury's Nut Store. The animals agree to accompany Surly on a food heist that could keep them cosy all winter, but in order to do so they have to get past the menacing owner and his slobbering pug, Precious. How to rob a nut store isn't the only thing that Surly finds himself learning though, and he starts to realise just how great the benefits can be working in a team.

As always, there are far too many sequels, spin-offs, remakes and reboots clogging the cinemas, but some of them might actually be good. Of course, release dates are subject to change...

The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.
If you stay in a cardboard box - like Solid Snake - then everything should be fine.
S**t. We’d better stock up on tinned butter beans and thick socks; we might be down here for a while. A study released in the December edition of Pediatrics states that PG-13 films feature gun violence 2.6 times-an-hour, which is way more than R-rated films.
Liam Neeson holding a gun on someone, and not even in a film
This means the ratings are a bit off, probably. But it could mean an army of 12-year-olds – clad in Finding Nemo pyjamas - will take to the streets armed to the nines with the most advanced weaponry known to western civilisation. As law-abiding citizens, we just have to hope it doesn’t come to that.

Liam Neeson doing what he does best: railing against bad guys.
Those with even a teensy fear of flying should click away now because new Liam Neeson thriller exploits just about every aeroplane-based fear there is, including terrorists, fire, a hurtling plummet and a killer on the loose.
You ready? Well Neeson plays Bill Marks, a US federal air marshal whose job it is to protect our skies but ironically hates flying. He boards a plane from New York to London and gets settled down in his seat next to Julianne Moore when his phone goes off, despite his supposedly secured network. He checks the message and it reads an eerie "Hello Marshal."
Bill Marks is a U.S. federal air marshal who ironically can't stand plane journeys. His hatred for flying is only about to get a lot worse when an anonymous person breaks through the secure network on his phone to send him a threatening text explaining that they're going to kill a person on the plane every twenty minutes unless $150 million is transferred to an offshore account number. With the crew sceptical that anything's amiss and insisting that no-one could get away with murder on a 6 hour flight between the States and the UK, Bill is forced to search for the culprit alone - but time is running out as the first victim is discovered. When it is revealed that the account number is actually in his name, news spreads across the world that he has hijacked the flight and he is forced to defend himself while keeping everybody else from being harmed.
This high-action mystery thriller will have you on the edge of seat this winter with an almost impossible to believe cat and mouse chase. 'Non-Stop' has been directed by Jaume Collet-Serra ('Orphan', 'Unknown', 'House Of Wax') and written by Ryan Engle ('On a Clear Day') and John W. Richardson and Christopher Roach in their feature screenwriting debuts. It is set to be released in the UK on February 28th 2014.

The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.
Check out the colourful trailer below
When Khumba – a zebra with a lack of markings – is born into a superstitious herd, his fellow species think it’s a bad sign. And, much to young Khumba’s detriment, a potentially deadly drought soon follows his birth. But instead of letting his fellow zebras vilify him, he attempts to find a watering hole.
Hey, it's Khumba
In doing so, he meets a wide range of brilliantly funny, scary and loyal characters along way. There’s Phango, the dangerous leopard who controls the waterholes and terrorizes the animals in the Great Karoo, played by Liam Neeson.
Khumba is a young zebra who was born missing half of his stripes. Following his birth, there came a deadly drought threatening the survival of the herd and killing his mother. To his superstitious peers and his father, Khumba's unusual appearance is an extremely bad omen and he is eventually driven to run away from the herd to find water and acceptance elsewhere, leaving his only friend in Great Karoo, Tombi. On his travels, he meets a motherly wildebeest named Mama V and her wacky friend Bradley the Ostrich who are willing to travel with him and protect him from the ills of the wild, namely Phango the Leopard whose presence is a threat to every other creature in Great Karoo. He also meets Mantis, who reveals a map that could lead them to a waterhole - or will it instead lead Khumba to find his stripes?
'Khumba' is a heart-warming animated flick about that timeless message of accepting people's differences. It has been directed by Anthony Silverston in first direction, who co-wrote the screenplay alongside previous writing partner Raffaella Delle Donne ('Zambezia'). It was nominated for a Cristal award for best feature at the 2013 Annecy International Animated Film Festival and has already been released in the US.
Ron Burgundy compares a Dodge Durango's horsepower to that of an actually horse before insulting it and challenging it to a staring contest in the new clip from upcoming 'Anchorman' sequel 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'.
