Liam Neeson Becomes the Taker in ‘Taken 3’ [WATCH VIDEO]
The actor who exudes so much badass yet elegant prowess on screen, Liam Neeson makes his return as Bryan Mills in the eponymous kidnapping film franchise, “Taken 3,” and he is out for blood because it seems he becomes the taker in this new installment. Read on to know more about the details of this scoop.
Speculations about a “Taken 3” movie have been circulating the web ever since the release of “Taken 2,” and Liam Neeson has been very diligent in denying the production for such installment. Two years later and we can’t help but say “Well done, Liam!” for hiding such a grand film in the works. He previously claimed that he will no longer be involved in another “Taken” movie, but well played, sir, well played. Finally putting an end to all those rumors is the recent release of the official trailer for “Taken 3,” and it seems more adrenalin pumping than ever. In the last two “Taken” films, Bryan Mills (Neeson) was bombarded with constant worry as the lives of his loved ones were put on sight, but on this new trailer, it appears as though he becomes the taker.
Just like any other tragedy introducing the trailer, it starts off with a peaceful piano instrumental that indicates how well things are for Byran Mills and his wife Lenore (Famke Janssen). Everything appears serene, and the next thing we see is Lenore dead on their bed. Of course, we all know that the peacefulness is just a mere introduction for the manifold tragedy that is about to unfold for the ex-CIA agent. Instead of the torments being focused on his family members, this time around, the sights are set on him as he is framed for the murder of his wife. Giving us more than what the previous “Taken” films had on Bryan Mills’ supremacy as a skilled manhunter, “Taken 3” magnifies how much of a dangerous man he truly is and to what extent he’s willing to do to protect the people he loves.
Plot twists though, its Forest Whitaker’s character who says the iconic line with: “The LAPD, the FBI, the CIA… They are all going to come for you. They’ll find you and they’ll stop you.” He then responds with a “Good luck.”
Based on Den of Geek’s take of the trailer, seems like the movie never failed to highlight how Bryan Mills is fully capable of turning anything to a torture device. See how things will finally come to an end as it opens in theaters on Jan. 9, 2015.
That concludes our scoop on the recently released “Tak3n” trailer. Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates on upcoming films.
