Oh, hey, Liam Neeson. We were just talking about you. As you all might expect, Run All Night stars Neeson as aging Brooklyn hitman Jimmy Conlon, who kills his former boss’ son to save the life of his own estranged offspring (Kinnaman). When the mob boss (Harris) puts a hit out on Jimmy’s whole family, it sparks a war on the streets of New York City. With one last shot at redemption, Jimmy is forced to evade the army of guns out to kill him, as well as a police detective (D’Onofrio) who may finally have his number after all these years.

 

CINDERELLA

Release date: March 13
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter

Having run out of Brothers Grimm characters to turn into busty, doe-eyed, cartoon damsels, Walt Disney Studios is now going back to the beginning of its catalog for live-action remakes of its most popular animated classics. The company’s reimagining began last year with the underwhelming Maleficent, picks up speed with this month’s bippity-boppity-boring-looking Cinderella and will reportedly continue with Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Ryan Gosling as Belle and Beast, respectively. Hey, girl. Kiss me before my rose dies. Or don’t. I’ll respect your decision either way.
