Liam Neeson Returns on Shadowy New UK Quad Poster for 'Taken 2'
First they took his daughter. Now they're coming for him. He's back. Last week, Fox mailed out Father's Day cards (see mine here) for Taken 2, starring Liam Neeson as ex-CIA Bryan Mills again. Now we've got the first poster from the UK via Empire, hopefully this means the first official trailer is coming very soon, too. Taken 2 is indeed the sequel to the original badass action flick Taken with Neeson, reuniting the family on another thrilling kidnapping adventure, this time in Istanbul. It's a dark, shadowy poster, it looks pretty good, but certainly not an indication of the action intensity to come. I'm still looking forward to this anyway.
Taken 2 is a sequel to the surprise 2008 action hit starring Liam Neeson. In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills (Neeson) and his wife (Famke Janssen) are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter (Maggie Grace) in the first film. French filmmaker Olivier Megaton (of Colombiana and Transporter 3 previously) directs the film from a script by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (who both wrote the original Taken film and Fifth Element together); Besson is also producing. 20th Century Fox is bringing Taken 2 to theaters everywhere starting on October 5th this year. Excited yet?
