The international trailer for Taken 2 just came out, and it looks like we’re in for much more Liam Neeson revenge action that made the first installment so popular, this time set against the beautiful backdrop of Istanbul.
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.
