After the international trailer arrived, and was quickly removed, we finally get the full proper trailer treatment for director Olivier Megaton’s Taken 2. Liam Neeson is back as Bryan Mills, the man with a “particular set of skills” and this new trailer shows us exactly the kind of violent fun we can expect from the sequel.
I love the final moments where Mills talks to his new enemy, Murad (Rade Serbedzija) and the discussion goes something like this:
Mills: “If I kill you, your other Sons will come and seek revenge?”
Murad: “They will”
Mills: “Then I will kill them too”
Classic, and not only that, the trailer is filled with a fair amount of new footage, most of it involving Neeson beaten the crap out of people or casually killing them. How can Taken 2 go wrong I ask you?
Taken 2 arrives in UK cinemas 5th October.
The sequel will be directed by Olivier Megaton and will star Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen, Maggie Grace and newcomer Rade Sherbedgia is now joining the cast as Murad, the nasty villain of the film. In the original, one of the villains Neeson killed also had a Dad, and that man is Murad, and he has some special skills of his own. Murad has taken both Bryan Mills (Neeson) and his wife Lenore (Janssen) captive, and it is now up to daughter Kim (Grace) to free them. Clearly though we will get to see plenty of Bryan Mill’s skills too!
