Watch: The Trailer For ‘Taken 2′ Has Been Released


Back in 2008, Liam Neeson enjoyed surprising success with a little known action film titled Taken which ended up taking the US box office by storm! OK, maybe not “by storm”, but it did well enough to warrant a sequel (which, to be honest, doesn’t really mean much because there are a lot of crappy sequels out there … but I’m digressing). This October, Liam Neeson and his on screen family (Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace) will return to the action that was started in Taken with the sequel film Taken 2. Click below to check out the trailer in full.

OH man, this looks good. I remember when Taken was released here in the US back in ’08. If I recall correctly, the movie studio didn’t have high hopes for the film so they released it first internationally, hoping to make some money there before it got released here in the US. My guess is that they attempted to make back as much money as possible in foreign markets first before the film could “flop” here at home. Taken was such an exhilarating and entertaining movie, I wasn’t at all surprised that it found an audience here. Taken 2 looks just as good. As long as they keep the action at a high level and they don’t worry too much with the story, I think this movie will do just fine. I’m very much looking forward to seeing Neeson in action again this Fall. Any Taken fans out there? Are you excited for Taken 2?

    Taken was amazing, I hope this is just as awesome

  • Sarah

    Not really a movie that needs a sequel but I loved the first one and this one looks just as bad ass

  • Loved Taken and I can’t wait to see this one! It looks great!

  • BCDanielle

    I watched the mistake of watching this movie with my dad. Bad idea!

    Love it. When did Liam Neeson become such a bad ass? I love all the action movies he’s been doing lately

  • Sfmom

    Yeah! I think it will be hard to totally recapture the brilliance of the first one…but still. Liam Neeson is amazing. In the first, the most compelling moment was his conversation on the phone with his daughter (“they’re going to take you”). Same thing in The Grey…there’s a moment where he tells a guy “you’re going to die” and talks him through his last moments of life. Liam Neeson is the man you want telling you those things you don’t really want to hear but know are true. Sympathetic, tender but also believable, crushingly honest and a total bad ass. Definitely looking forward to this movie.

    Totally looking forward to this sequel! I certainly enjoyed “Taken” far more than I expected to, and Liam Neeson surprisingly delivers quite well as an action hero. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for round 2!
