2012 is all over and the Mayan prophecy killed us all. Luckily, we at Planet Fanboy slipped this into our system prior to the day we all died, so the cockroaches have something to read as they feast on our corpses. So pull up a seat, Scritchy and Scratchy, and learn about the year that was.
2012 opened nicely. Qui-Gon Jinn looked death in the eye and slowly let death win in "The Grey." But he did it in a very picturesque way while reciting poetry in his head, so it made for a terrific movie.
George Lucas finally let loose with his "Red Tails" project and it wasn't very good but we all got to shrug our shoulders and say "well, that is absolutely the last time George Lucas will make any news this year." Get More »
The year 2012, or, as we like to call it, the beard 2012, is drawing to a close. Awards nominations are being handed out left and right, top 10 lists being written and superlative statements being made all around. It felt only right that we here at NextMovie draw up our own list, one honoring the best examples what we feel was 2012's most ubiquitous accessory: facial hair.
So here, it is, our salute to the greatest flavor savers, 'staches, soul patches and beards that graced the screen this year, broken down by month.
Liam Neeson in "The Grey"
We're not sure whether the beard makes the eyes or vice versa, but can we just say that we shiver in awe of their combined effect? Neeson's character in the film may have a way with killing wolves, but we're only human — and we are slayed. Get More »
"Liam Neesons straight killed a robot boat!"
You may have heard the term for Hollywood's current favorite action subgenre: "Neesploitation." And there are no bigger fans of Neesploitation flicks than Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Get More »
All too often, the scariest part of Halloween is coming up with a brilliant, budget-friendly costume — especially if you've waited until the last minute again (really, when are we going to learn?).
But now that All Hallows Eve is almost upon us, there's no avoiding this monster-in-the-house any longer.
That's why NextMovie has prepared a simple list of easy-to-assemble ensembles sure to save you from squandering your precious Saturday afternoon in line at the local Halloween pop-up shop.
Liam Neeson has played thoughtful and sensitive in movies like "Kinsey," or romantic in "Love Actually," but we love him best when he's slinging swords or kicking butt.
Since he's reprising his role of ex-CIA man Bryan Mills in this week's rip-roaring sequel "Taken 2," we thought we'd refresh your memory on just how big of a badass this 60-year-old Irishman really is before you watch him blow away Albanians for two hours. Get More »
They're practically the same age, with names so similar they give dyslexics seizures, and both have played love interests of Julia Roberts. But Dermot Mulroney and Dylan McDermott are not the same person. We swear.
The two actors have both had steady careers, with Mulroney sticking mostly to character roles on the big screen ("Zodiac," "J. Edgar") while McDermott found fame on the boob tube starring in hit shows like "The Practice," "Dark Blue" and Ryan Murphy's current FX series "American Horror Story." Get More »
This week: Liam Neeson protects a pack of plane-crash survivors in remote Alaska from a pack of territorial wolves in the survival thriller "The Grey."
Also new this week is the teen sci-fi hit "Chronicle," Glenn Close in male drag in "Albert Nobbs," the exorcism horror flick "The Devil Inside," and the Blu-ray debut of the comedy "Road Trip." Get More »
In a development that would seem to upset the (super)natural order of the world, wolves defeated werewolves at the theater this weekend, as "The Grey" topped "Underworld Awakening" to take the top spot on the box office chart.
According to Hollywood.com, "The Grey," which stars Liam Neeson as a badass who survives a plane crash only to be attacked by packs of hungry wolves, pulled in a better than expected $20 million. That handily beat out last week's champ, "Underworld Awakening," which came in second with a strong $12.5 million.
For the full box office roundup, including figures for new releases "Man on a Ledge" and "One For the Money," check out Hollywood.com.
Imagine if Jack London of "Call of the Wild" fame wrote the screenplay for "Night of the Living Dead" and you're halfway to getting the nailbiting suspense of "The Grey."
In a complete 180 from his silly studio outing "The A-Team," writer-director Joe Carnahan takes Liam Neeson and throws him into the starkest landscape imaginable: the snow-blitzed Alaskan wilderness. Neeson's tough survivalist and a ragtag group of plane crash survivors are pitted against a pack of snarling gray wolves with a taste for human flesh -- and if the men can put their differences aside, they might just live to see another day ...

The new Twitter-exclusive trailer for Liam Neeson's upcoming survival epic "The Grey" has just dropped online and all we can say is, we're pretty sure the hashtag #soilyourdrawers has just been taken.
Good thing wolves don't have opposable thumbs. Get More »
