Twentieth Century Fox and Yahoo Movies have just revealed the first international trailer for Taken 2. Director Olivier Megaton's follow-up to the 2009 sleeper hit Taken, this films finds star Liam Neeson (The Grey) reprising his role as Bryan Mills, a fearsome ex-CIA operative.
In the first film, Mills had to rescue his teenage daughter Kim (Maggie Grace, Lost) from a network of European human traffickers. Taken 2 reverses that equation; associates of the criminals that Mills killed tracking his daughter now hold Mills hostage, and only Kim and Mills' former CIA partners (Leland Orser, Saving Private Ryan, Jon Gries, Napoleon Dynamite, and David Warshofsky, Unstoppable) can get him back.
Taken 2's U.S. release date is scheduled for October 5th.
Looks a bit better than the first one, and that's not saying very much either. As brilliant an actor that Liam is, I personally never understood why the first one is so highly rated... pretty mediocre film. Just one guys opinion though.
Taken 3: After rescuing his daughter, then his wife and daughter, he must now rescue his entire family plus grandma plus pet cat. And he's running out of time because they've all been kidnapped by cannibals.
About it being PG-13: The first one was edited to get PG-13. The international version was uncensored. We didn't get that until the blu-ray. I have a feeling it'll be the same. Usually happens with Luc Benson produced movies. Columbiana and Lockout did the same thing.
" I know who you are, I know what you want, and if you kill my wife and attempt to kill my daughter, I will have to unleash my lifetime of skills on you. Skills I have learned after a very long career, skills like playing a master Jedi in Star Wars Episode I and damn it Zues in Clash/Wrath of the Titans, so don't fuck with me because I'm Liam Neeson, the baddest ass kickin' actor of my time "............
