20th Century Fox released a new trailer for Taken 3, or Tak3n or whatever clever play on the number 3 they’re using these days. After loving the original and being lukewarm on the sequel, I was prepared to hate this trailer. But I have to admit that I kind of like what it’s offering. While I certainly miss the days when Liam Neeson did serious dramatic work, few actors kick as much ass as Neeson these days. Bouncing, exploding police cars aside, there’s a lot to like in this trailer. Plus, the movie has a touch of The Fugitive added to the mix. I’ll be there.
Tak3n is set for release on January 9, 2015, is produced by 20th Century Fox, written by Luc Besson and Mark Kamen, directed by Oliver Megaton (no relation to the hydrogen bomb), and stars Liam Neeson, Forest Whitaker, Famke Janssen (briefly), and Maggie Grace.
