Liam Neeson had a very particular set of skills in the surprise 2009 hit "Taken," and the burly actor dusts them off once again for "Taken 2."
The international trailer for the "Taken" sequel has arrived with a second-verse-almost-same-as-the-first premise: After retrieving his kidnapped daughter from a bunch of thug-y Eurotrash in the first film, Neeson's Bryan must get his wife back. The twist? The thugs are seeking revenge on Bryan, an ex-CIA operative, because he killed all their sons during the first quest. As Justin Timberlake once sang, what goes around, comes around.
Directed by the awesomely named Olivier Megaton, "Taken 2" will be Neeson's fourth 2012 release. (He was previously in "The Grey" and "Battleship" and has a not-so-secret appearance in "The Dark Knight Rises.") It reunites him with original co-stars Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace, as well as a bevy of awesome one-liners.
1. ["What are you going to do?"] "What I do best."
2. "This is not a game."
3. "I will finish this thing. You'll just have to die."
"Taken 2" arrives in theaters on Oct. 5. Watch the international trailer above.
RELATED: Movies to watch with dad
You can't really have Father's Day without a John Wayne movie, so why not pop in "The Searchers"? Sure, it's much darker than Wayne's other Western favorites, but it's also The Duke's best film. Alternates: "Stagecoach" or "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance."
"No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die." The Sean Connery-led Bond films are standard issue Father's Day fare, and "Goldfinger" might be Bond's best -- a swingin' '60s romp of fast cars, beautiful women and fantastic one-liners.
Your dad might not be up for "That's My Boy," but he's certainly down for "Caddyshack," the ultimate snob-versus-slobs comedy set on the golf course. So you've got that going for you ... which is nice.
'A Little Princess'
The story of a little girl whose father goes missing in action in World War I, dooming her to a life of servitude at a New York boarding school. It's OK to shed a few tears on Father's Day.
Nothing like the love of a father turned into an animated fish-tale by Pixar to bring the family together.
'Field of Dreams'
"If you build it, they will come." The best baseball movie ever ends with a father-son catch that spans life and death. You'll cry. He'll cry. Then you'll throw the ball around.
'Father of the Bride'
The perfect film to remind your dad how good he has it -- or to give him a glimpse into what his life could eventually become...
Mr. Incredible: The type of dad who will do anything -- including fight a dastardly supervillain -- to save his family.
'To Kill A Mockingbird'
Atticus Finch isn't a superhero, but he's probably cinema's best dad ever. Enjoy!
Help is on the way! Robin Williams takes custody battles to the extreme in "Mrs. Doubtfire," which could have been sad like "Kramer vs. Kramer," but isn't. It includes a "run-by fruiting," after all.
'Saving Private Ryan'
If your dad was part of the Greatest Generation, there is no better film to watch on Father's Day.
Dads like two thing: Stephen King books and TNT. "Shawshank Redemption" combines both: It's based on a King short story and airs on TNT every other day. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things -- especially on Father's Day.
