A new international trailer for Taken 2 has landed online. As with the other trailers, this teases exactly what audiences want from the sequel: another “taken” scenario in which Liam Neeson is forced to be a badass. The first film’s simple premise and international setting made for a fun actioner, and setting up the family members of all the men Neeson so quickly dispatched with in the first film as the sequel’s villains is an exciting angle.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer. The film also stars Famke Janssen, Maggie Grace, and Rade Serbedzija. Taken 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.
