Tom Hanks Will Build a Robot for His Dog in Sci-Fi Thriller Bios
Tom Hanks is attached to star in a hot new sci-fi project called Bios, which is currently being shopped to studios, with several potential bidders eyeing the project. Among them are Legendary, Warner Bros. and Studio 8, but whichever studio lands this project, they're expected to get to work rather quickly, with production being eyed to start in the first quarter of 2018, after the busy schedule of Tom Hanks starts to clear up.

The script was written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell, which is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The story centers on a robot built by its ailing creator (Tom Hanks) to take care of his beloved dog, as he starts to fade away. Along the way, this robot learns about love, friendship and the meaning of human life. No further details were given about the story, or how many other characters still need to be cast. Still, given

Elizabeth McGovern Says ‘Time and the Conways’ Is a Coping Mechanism for Today’s Dark Times (Exclusive)

Elizabeth McGovern Says ‘Time and the Conways’ Is a Coping Mechanism for Today’s Dark Times (Exclusive)
After six seasons playing Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, on Downton Abbey, Elizabeth McGovern is once again the matriarch of a wealthy British family of the early 1900s in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of J. B. Priestley’s Time and the Conways. Revived for the first time since its 1938 debut, the play is a time-jumping story that is filled with optimism and hope as the family celebrates one daughter’s birthday in the present and unimaginable transformations as they face their bitter realities 19 years later. But after watching McGovern perform onstage, which just so happens to mark her first time back on Broadway since playing Ophelia in Hamlet 25 years prior, it’s clear that Mrs. Conway is anything but the seemingly perfect, presentable and understanding mother that the actress embodied on the ITV series.

“I’m finding it a little bit frightening how easy it is for me to understand this mother. I’m not sure

‘The Commuter’ Trailer: Liam Neeson Experiences the Horrors of Public Transit

If this year feels a little peculiar, it might be that there’s no new Jaume Collet-Serra film, an occurrence that hasn’t happened since 2013. Thankfully, one is just around the corner this January with The Commuter. While the title might hint at a docudrama about the horrors of the Mta, the film actually finds the director once again embracing B-movie thrills, and now a new trailer has arrived.

The film presents Neeson’s character with a question of morality: for $75,000, will he uncover a person with seemingly evil intentions on his train? Judging from this new trailer, he goes along with the plan and Hitchcock-style entertainment unspools. Also starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Jonathan Banks, Elizabeth McGovern, and Sam Neill, see the trailer and poster below.

New trailer for Liam Neeson’s The Commuter

“You have until next stop to decide. What kind of person are you?”

That’s the thinly veiled threat made to Liam Neeson’s travelling salesman by Vera Farmiga’s butter-wouldn’t-melt blackmailer in the latest trailer for The Commuter. Jaume Collet-Serra’s action film is shaping up to be the best high-speed transport game of cat-and-mouse since Speed, and whilst the last director/star collaboration may have been more non-starter than Non-Stop, Serra is coming off the back of the terrific Blake Lively and seagull movie, The Shallows, so hopes are high for some high-octane fun.

Liam Neeson in The Commuter Trailer: One Little Thing

Never play dare with Vera Farmiga. This just a hunch on my part, informed by the first trailer for The Commuter, in which businessman Liam Neeson meets a stranger on a train (Farmiga) who suggests he do "one little thing," which then leads to death, disaster, and dodgy CGI, and the promise of more. Jaume Collet-Serra directed; he's worked with Neeson before on Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night, and with Farmiga on Orphan. He's done a fine job of crafting pulse-pounding thrillers, even when the material veers towards the ludicrous, so I'm hoping for more of the same when The Commuter opens in theaters on January 12, 2018.

The Commuter Trailer #2 Has Liam Neeson Back in Action
Just over a month after the first trailer arrived, Lionsgate has released a second trailer and a new poster for The Commuter, featuring Liam Neeson in what was originally thought to be one of his final action roles, since the actor hinted last month he's retiring from action movies. He later clarified in another interview that he isn't retiring from action movies, adding that he'll keep, "doing action movies until they bury me in the ground." While it at one point seemed that The Commuter was the end of the Liam Neeson action movie era, fans will still have many more Liam Neeson action movies to look forward to.

The film stars Liam Neeson as an insurance salesman on his daily commute who is drawn into a dangerous game where he must uncover the secret identity of one of his fellow passengers or face the consequences.

Second Trailer for Train Thriller 'The Commuter' Starring Liam Neeson

"Most of us ride this train every day. We nod, we say hello, but how much do we really know about each other?" Lionsgate has debuted the second trailer for the action-thriller train movie starring Liam Neeson, titled The Commuter. From the same director of Non-Stop (the airplane movie) and The Shallows, this movie is basically Unstoppable (the train movie) meets Non-Stop (or even Source Code). Neeson plays an insurance salesman who gets mixed up in a criminal 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. This looks like it has tons of action and will be intense to watch, I'm intrigued. Enjoy. Here's the second trailer (+ new poster) for Jaume Collet-Serra's The Commuter, direct from
