I don't have any money, but what I do have is a sequel, and a brand new trailer for it!
It may not have been a critical success, nor anything particularly special, but 2008's Taken certainly was a financial hit that was enjoyed by people all over the world. Now Brian Mills (Liam Neeson) is back for another round of action in Taken 2.
What happens in Istanbul, stays in Istanbul, but when retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) in the first film, he must use his "certain set of skills" once again to get out of his trickiest situation yet!
It may not have been a spectacular film, but there was something very cool about watching Liam Neeson running around Paris kicking ass in the original Taken film. Now that we have a sequel to look forward to this October, Brian Mill's biggest challenge won't be saving his wife, but ensuring that he can once again entertain the audience - or has the moment passed and will this be one film too far? We'll soon find out, but until then you can now whet your appetite with this brand new trailer...
Taken 2 is released in cinemas across the UK on October 5th 2012.
