New Trailer for TAKEN 2 Starring Liam Neeson

The first theatrical U.S. trailer for director Olivier Megaton‘s Taken 2 has gone online.  The clip starts the same as the first international trailer, but the second half goes a bit more into the plot, sets up the tone of the film, and showcases some of the fighting (ie. Liam Neeson kicking ass).  The story finds Neeson’s character as the target of revenge, as the family members of all those people he so swiftly murdered in the first pic are out for blood.  I like the idea of escalation and the endless circle of violence being explored in the follow-up, with Rade Serbedzija’s villain character telling Neeson that if he kills him, Neeson will just have more people after him that he’ll have to kill too.  It’d be nice to see his character wrestle with the consequences of his murderous streak, but I’m sure we’ll see plenty of badassness from Neeson as well.  All in all, Taken 2 looks to be a damn good time.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Famke Janssen and Maggie GraceTaken 2 opens on October 5th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Taken 2:

Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.
