"Chloe"

The international trailer for the new erotica thriller Chloe, from director Atom Egoyan and starring Amanda Seyfried, Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson, has already set the tubes ablaze. Now there's a version a family network can show...

"Clash of the Titans"

The timeless -- and oft told -- Greek myth of Perseus leading the humans in a war against the gods stars Sam Worthington in this 3D remake of the embarrassingly campy 1981 film.

As bad as it was, Liam Neeson is totally stoked for a second helping of "Clash of the Titans."

"I've only read half of the script and there is still some work being done - they're on script 10 - but I think it's going to be some kick-a** stuff and a very human story to it," he told the Belfast Telegraph.
 
Lest you think the man's lost his marbles, if you read between the lines, there's a tacit acknowledgment of the first film's--ahem-- shortcomings.

"We will start next March. I'm very much looking forward to it. It's a whole revamping, you know."

Yes, "a whole revamping." Let's hope so. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times brilliantly likened the film to a "pop-up book." If only it had been that interesting.

Neeson also vowed to do yet another sequel, this one for a decidedly better, if still not great, film.

“And yes, there’ll be a 'Taken 2,' before these limbs give up on me,” he vowed.

Neeson's been working a lot lately, with tomorrow's release of "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," mark his sixth release of the year: "Chloe" was almost very god, "Clash" was a disaster, nobody saw "After.Life," "The A-Team" was OK, but didn't find an audience, and "The Next Three Days" was just awful.
 
Maybe Neeson needs to learn how to say no.
