Another New Trailer for Taken with Liam Neeson
I first discovered this French thriller back in December (watch that trailer) and have since been crossing my fingers, hoping that it would somehow make it to America. Another new full trailer for Taken has arrived, courtesy of the official website (taken-lefilm.com), and it brings a new sense of excitement to the table. Liam Neeson stars in this movie co-written by Robert Mark Kamen (of The Transporter) and Luc Besson (of The Professional) about a father who goes on a manhunt after his daughter is kidnapped in Paris. Not only is this trailer cut amazingly well, but this movie just looks awesome.
Why the hell isn't this coming out in the US in February?! How long we do have to wait for this! Fox sadly has the US distribution rights - so I beg them, please bring this over here soon! Or else I'll have to fly to France myself in the end of February just to see this.
Watch the full trailer for Taken:
Taken is directed by Pierre Morel, director of District B13 and long-time cinematographer, and is co-written by Robert Mark Kamen (Kiss of the Dragon, The Transporter) and Luc Besson (The Professional, La Femme Nikita, Fifth Element). The film does not have a US release date set by Fox, but is arriving in France in February 2008. The newest poster for Taken is featured below.
