This week: The former CIA agent played by Liam Neeson is the one who ends up being abducted instead of his daughter in "Taken 2," the hit action sequel that also features the return of Maggie Grace as Neeson's daughter and Famke Janssen as his ex-wife in a story that moves the action to Istanbul.
Maggie Grace is trouble. And we like that.
Maggie was stranded on a deserted island (and later "voted off," so to speak) on "Lost," haunted by an evil mist in "The Fog," kidnapped and sold into sex slavery (or at least drugged-up dancing) in "Taken" and taken hostage during a riot on a prison spaceship in "Lockout." And she looked really, really good in every single scenario.
Now Maggie's causing all sorts of drama (and war and death, perhaps) for the Cullen clan in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." Check out our collection of pics of this troubled young lady looking hot (and often bothered) throughout the years in movies, television and on the red carpet.
Judging by the clips and trailers we've seen so far, we can expect to see some serious vampire Bella (Kristen Stewart) action and get to catch up with the one and only Cullen coven. But, with a ton of other bloodlovers coming into the fold for the final film, Twi-hards should probably also brace for some new faces.
To help remind you who's who among the new coven vampires in "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," we put together this handy dandy little refresher guide. Get More »
In 2008's smash hit "Taken," Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) had to rescue his daughter, but, in "Taken 2," it's him who gets snatched up, and his one-and-only pride and joy Kim (Maggie Grace) has to get dad out of trouble.
Of course, Neeson gets more than his fair share of opportunities to tear a bunch of Albanian mafiosi a new a**hole, and show off some cunning tricks of the trade he didn't get to display on his first merry-go-round. Get More »
This week: Moe, Larry and Curly get reinvented for the 21st century in "The Three Stooges," an old-school slapstick comedy directed by the Farrelly brothers.
Also new this week is the sci-fi action thriller "Lockout" starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace, Mel Gibson in "Get the Gringo," Will Ferrell's Spanish-language comedy "Casa de mi Padre," the ensemble comedy "Friends with Kids," the quirky romantic dramedy "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt, and the Blu-ray debut of Gene Kelly in "Singin' in the Rain" in celebration of the film's 60th anniversary.

Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills, skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people who don't enjoy kick-ass action movies. And if you don't believe him, be warned: He will look for you, he will find you and he will entertain the hell out of you.
That's right: She has (officially) arrived. With "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" just a sliver over five months from its release date on November 16, Summit has released the first look at the young Mackenzie Foy as Renesmee, the vampire hybrid love child of Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson).
Too bad she's hiding behind Mommy, making it almost impossible to actually see her. Sigh. Get More »
"One of my favorites is the beautiful Franco Zeffirelli version of 'Romeo and Juliet' from 1968. Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey have such chemistry that I could watch that over and over again.
"When I was 13, I saw it about 20 times and would pause it on the 'dirty' parts. That's what Christian school does: 'Oh my God! They showed her topless. Pause!"
Maggie Grace might not see herself as an action-movie heroine, but you wouldn't know it by watching her opposite Guy Pearce in the new sci-fi thriller "Lockout." The 28-year-old actress moved to Los Angeles from Ohio after her parents' divorce and won accolades for her breakout role in the 2002 TV movie "Murder in Greenwich." That led to more TV roles -- including the part of Shannon Rutherford on "Lost" -- and memorable appearances on the big screen as Liam Neeson's kidnapped daughter in "Taken" and Irina the vampire in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1."
We sat down with Grace as she chatted candidly about the behind-the-scenes action on "Lockout," her "Lost" finale reunion, her preparedness for "Twilight" mania and how she got the nickname "Maggie Graceless." Get More »
Maggie Grace is in trouble again, but this time it's Guy Pearce rather than Liam Neeson who's sent to rescue her in the new sci-fi action thriller, "Lockout."
The "Taken" beauty plays the President's daughter (rather than Liam Neeson's ... okay, we'll stop), who just happens to be on board a maximum security prison in space when the prisoners riot and take over the place -- Pearce, looking rather comfortable in action-hero mode, is the disgraced government operative accused of a crime he may or may not have committed who's offered a clean record if he catches the next rocket to the big house and saves her.
