Third & Final Trailer for Train Movie 'The Commuter' with Liam Neeson

"You're trying to set me up." Lionsgate has debuted the third and final trailer for the action-thriller train movie starring Liam Neeson, titled The Commuter. This trailer doesn't waste time setting up the story or the first conversation, it just gets right into it and shows some of the action. From the same director of Non-Stop (the airplane movie) and The Shallows, this is about solving a crime on the train. Neeson plays an insurance salesman who gets mixed up in a conspiracy on his daily train commute home. Vera Farmiga, a "mysterious stranger", sits with him for a chat and things get very interesting. The cast includes Patrick Wilson, Killian Scott, Jonathan Banks, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern, Florence Pugh, and Damson Idris. I am still curious about this, but really not expecting much with this January release date. Here's the third & final trailer (+ poster) for Jaume Collet-Serra's The Commuter,

Apparently Sam Neill Has A Role In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom seems as conscious of living in the original Jurassic Park‘s shadow as Jurassic World did. That awesome first trailer showcased the original ‘hero’ T-Rex, now battle-scarred after tangling with Indominus Rex at the conclusion of the last film, and also gave us a glimpse at the return of Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm, the ‘rock star’ chaos theorist famous for realizing that life, uh, f-finds a… way?

Now, the rumor mill is saying that Malcolm and the Rex might not be the only familiar faces we’ll see in the film, as Mr. Sunday Movies, who has a good reputation for accuracy on these things, is reporting that Sam Neill is due to make a surprise appearance, with a source claiming that the actor was spotted arriving in a blacked out SUV on set.

We can surmise from the trailer that there’s some

Sam Neill Returns as Alan Grant in Jurassic World 2 Cameo?

Sam Neill Returns as Alan Grant in Jurassic World 2 Cameo?
It looks like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has quite a few surprises in store, including a possible cameo from one of the franchise's most beloved characters. A new rumor suggests that Sam Neill may have a small scene in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, once again reprising his role as Dr. Alan Grant. For now, this needs to be regarded as mere rumor, but there's reason to believe this one has some weight to it. The news comes from Mr. Sunday Movies, who made the reveal in a recent YouTube video posted to his channel. Here's what he had to say about it.

"So this email I got, it's not somebody who I know personally, so take this with some granule of salt. This person who was working on the soundstage, where some of this film was shot, said that Sam Neill rolled up in a blacked out BMW at the time that this was filming.

Peter Rabbit Trailer #2 Introduces a New Kind of Hero

Peter Rabbit Trailer #2 Introduces a New Kind of Hero
Sony Pictures has released the new trailer and poster for Peter Rabbit, which offers much more footage than the first trailer released back in late September. In the original stories by author Beatrix Potter, the beloved rabbit had quite the rivalry with Mr. McGregor, which is certainly put on display in this trailer, but there is quite an interesting twist. This trailer offers our first look at Rose Byrne's character Bea, who may in fact be author Beatrix Potter.

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm,

Duh - Here's Why Thor: Ragnarok's Bootleg Thor Looks Just Like Chris Hemsworth

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Disney While that buzzy Thor: Ragnarok cameo might have totally distracted you in one of the new Marvel movie's earliest scenes, there's another cameo (or two) that we need to talk about. Obviously, Thor: Ragnarok spoilers ahead. RelatedWhat Those 2 Postcredits Scenes in Thor: Ragnarok Mean In the aforementioned scene, Thor has just come home to Asgard post-battle to find his father Odin and the kingdom just chillin' and watching a play that tells the tragic story of what happened to Loki. Not only is something amiss (turns out Loki is masquerading as Odin, hence the Loki-worshipping play), but the theater actors are all weirdly familiar. Yes, the guy who plays Loki is Matt Damon, but who is that chunk of man meat playing Thor in front of the real Thor - who looks just like Thor?! Answer: it's Luke Hemsworth!

Kevin Feige explains how Matt Damon’s Thor: Ragnarok cameo came about

Minor spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follow…

A few weeks before the release of Thor: Ragnarok, it was revealed that Matt Damon would be making a brief cameo in the Marvel blockbuster, and as we’ve now seen, Damon takes on the role of an Asgardian actor portraying Loki in a play alongside Luke Hemsworth as Thor and Sam Neill as Odin. Speaking to Collider, Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has discussed the origin of the scene, and how Damon came to be involved.

“There was an idea in the script phase,” said Feige. “I don’t remember if it was our writer, Eric Pearson’s or if it was Taika Waititi’s or if it was our executive producer, Brad Winderbaum to bring the audience up to speed on the fact that everybody thinks Loki is dead. So that when it was revealed that he was Odin, it would make some

Ragnarok Director Taika Waititi Wants Thor 4 To Kick Off With A Jurassic Park Reunion

From Hunt For the Wilderpeople to What We Do in the Shadows, Taika Waititi is known and loved for his tongue-in-cheek humor, but with Thor: Ragnarok, things got meta.

Leading up to the film’s arrival, we learned that Waititi had welcomed a raft of A-list actors for what would become an Asgardian stage play starring Luke Hemsworth (Thor), Matt Damon (Loki), and Sam Neill as the all-wise, all-powerful Odin. It’s a fun and refreshing spin on the ol’ Marvel cameo, and there’s even been hushed rumors that Matt Damon could return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future.

Stick a pin in that one for now, though as Taika Waititi has detailed his incredible pitch for the opening scene of Thor 4. Should the opportunity arise (and we’re inclined to believe it will), Waititi has said before that he wouldn’t think twice

Marvel Boss Hints At Possible McU Role For Matt Damon Beyond Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok is a bright and breezy adventure teeming with big-name cameos, but if there’s one actor that arguably stole the show – the Asgardian stage show, that is – it’s Matt Damon.

The Jason Bourne actor had been linked with Ragnarok for months leading up to the film’s November release, though it was only when Taika Waititi’s rip-roaring adventure opened in the United Kingdom that we got confirmation: Damon plays the part of Loki, God of Mischief, in an Asgardian play.

Co-starring Luke Hemsworth (Thor) and Sam Neill (Odin), the scene in question is a hilarious stroke of genius from writer-director Taika Waititi, who spent just as much time poking fun at the Thor mythos and the overarching McU as he did with the actual drama. But at least according to head honcho Kevin Feige, Marvel fans may not have seen the last of Matt Damon’s Asgardian superstar:
