Liam Neeson admits Taken franchise has run its course

The first Taken was an experience. Somehow all of the stars aligned and made the whole thing so badass, that we're getting a sequel. Admittedly the sequel has an intriguing premise (bad guys are angry and Neeson for bein...

Trailer: Taken 2

Liam Neeson doesn't take kindly to people who don't watch Taken 2 trailers, and says so himself in his introduction to this latest one. It's a wonderfully silly touch, and hopefully signals that the previous movie's (very) d...

Flix for Short: 'Taken' with a Real Dad

Remember that cool looking trailer for Taken 2? This is ten times better than that. Actually, Taken with a Real Dad is better than the Taken franchise will ever be. The awesome people over at Captain Hippo took the semi...

Trailer: Taken 2

Taken was a hysterical French critique of President George W. Bush's foreign policy and perceived xenophobia, told through the international language of relentless violence and sex emperors. It was very much of its time, wit...

Liam Neeson is back for Taken 2: The Takening, and here's your first look at him demonstrating his mad skillz. Set a year and a half after the first film, Neeson explained the set up of the sequel to Entertainment Weekly:

I've taken a job over in Istanbul looking after a sheik who is there, and afterward I discover that my wife's going through a very bad time with her new husband. So I suggest she and my daughter come over for a few days and hang out with me in this amazing city. And then... [laughs] all this s**t happens, of course.

One of the s**t things that happens involves the vengeful father of one of the human traffickers who got killed in the first film. It's a nice inversion that should be interesting to see unfold. No doubt the vengeful father also has a pet wolf that is the daughter of one of the wolves from The Grey.

Taken 2 comes out October 5th. Get ready for joint snaps, testicle-rupturing kicks, throat chops, and hammer blows from a large Irishman's closed fist by viewing the images in the gallery.

Taken 2: Take Harder coming Oct. 12. Other films dated

No, it's not actually called Taken 2: Take Harder. I just wanted to come up with a movie title more ridiculous than this one. Anyone who is a fan of Taken has been waiting quite a while now for the sequel to get off the groun...
