Recently, Liam Neeson threatened you into submission so you would watch his new trailer for Taken 2. Then, the first featurette went online that showed off retired CIA operative Bryan Mills’ “skills and kills.” Today, we’ll continue the rhyming scheme with a new behind-the-scenes stunt featurette that highlights the sequel’s “thrills and spills.” Imagine my surprise when I found out Neeson wasn’t actually killing all the people in the movie. I still wouldn’t want to piss him off though.
Taken 2, from director Olivier Megaton, also stars Famke Janssen, Maggie Grace and Rade Serbedzija. The sequel hits theaters October 5th. Hit the jump to watch the new stunts clip.
The following clip takes you behind the scenes of some of the stuntwork in Taken 2, along with commentary from cast members (via Machinima):
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.
