Also arriving is a new photo of Russell Crowe as villain Inspector Javert who is out to ruin the life of Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) in Tom Hooper's adaptation of "Les Misérables." The strong cast includes Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Sasha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter, and in the recent pages of Empire, Hooper promised he is not going for camp, and that "Les Miserables" will be a straight-up drama. That's probably a good thing in the end.

Another grizzled old-timer on the hunt is Liam Neeson who returns as cult favorite Bryan Mills in "Taken 2." The sequel switches things up a little as shit hits the fan when Mills and his ex-wife (Famke Jansen) are captured by the the father of one of the guys Mills killed in the first film, forcing his daughter (Maggie Grace) to do her father proud. Rest asssured, we don't doubt there'll be some Neeson badassery, with our interest lying in how they'll top the phone exchanges from the first film.

Neeson goes bananas on October 5th while "Les Misérables" will hit theaters December 14th for what we assume will be another Oscar run for Hooper, the Academy Award-winning director of "The King's Speech."

    I figured Liam Neeson was about to shoot him for making everyone forget about the version he was in. (Yeah, I know he wasn't Javert, but when the hell is there gonna be a picture of Geoffrey Rush holding a gun on someone?)
