Liam Neeson famously told a Dublin radio show that he thought a second "Taken" sequel would stretch the limits of disbelief. "I don't think there'll be a 'Taken 3,'" he said after the release of "Taken 2." "[My daughter] can't get taken again. That's just bad parenting."
With the release of the trailer for "Taken 3," Neeson has been proven half-right: His daughter, played by Maggie Grace, isn't taken in the new film, but it does exist (and it looks spectacular). This time around Neeson's Bryan Mills gets framed for the murder of his wife. In an effort to protect his daughter from a similar fate, he must outwit bad guys and most government agencies (CIA, FBI and the Los Angeles Police Department). "I'm going to finish this," Neeson says in the trailer. At least until "Ta4en"?
"Taken 3," stylized as "Tak3n" in the trailer, is out on Jan. 9, 2015.
