TOP MOVIE NEWS: FRIDAY 6 JULY
New Trailer for Taken 2,The Amazing Spider-Man Trilogy Confirmed
The original was supposed to be a straight-to-TV movie that Liam Neeson did because he fancied spending a bit of time in France.
Then, somehow, the cheap thrills and bad-ass Neeson really appealed to everyone and it did really, really surprisingly well.
Whether a sequel can pull off the same accidental brilliance remains to be seen, but it's certainly gunning for the same sort of thing. Exactly the same things actually.
We've still got Neeson playing a retired CIA agent, crying daughters, kidnappings and guns. There are a few changes. This time it’s Neeson and his wife getting kidnapped, rather than their daughter. Oh, and they're in Istanbul.
See the new international trailer below.
The Amazing Spider-Man Trilogy Confirmed
We've known there would be a sequel for a while now, but it has now been officially confirmed that Marc Webb's Spidey reboot is to be a trilogy.
The news was announced on the film's official Facebook page. Earlier this week director Webb said: "Movies like this tend to have sequels, [though] ultimately the audience will tell us if they want one. But I kind of thought it was an interesting thing to anticipate those storylines and think about the backstories and how we can parlay those into an ongoing story."
That means (we hope) two more doses of Andrew Garfield and potentially Emma Stone too.
