First trailer for Taken 2: watch now

Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills is back

Taken 2 has released a first trailer online, in which former CIA man Bryan Mills finds his family under threat once again from another posse of Albanian kidnappers... and this time, it’s extremely personal.

Rade Serbedzija plays the father of one of the goons offed by Mills in the first Taken film, and it's he who orchestrates the attack on his family. This time, it’s his wife (Famke Janssen) they snatch, and Mills is every bit as angry as he was last time.

Fortunately his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) manages to evade the kidnappers, but she still ends up in the firing line when Mills enlists her to help him save her mother.

Take a look at the new trailer, below...

The first movie was big, dumb fun of the highest order, and the formula here appears to conform to the “if it ain’t broke” school of thought. It’s almost as if Mills has gone on holiday to Istanbul in search of trouble, such is the ease with which he clicks back into neck-snapping gear.

Directed by Olivier Megaton from a script co-written by Luc Besson, Taken 2 will open in the UK on 5 October 2012. Having enjoyed his dalliance with a pack of ravenous wolves, it’s time for Neeson to return to what he does best: kicking Balkan backsides.

What do you make of the new trailer? Tell us below!

      Looks just like the first, which is no bad thing. The big man from Norn Iron is bringing it once again. #BOOTSTOASSES

      Trailers can look awesome, but director Olivier Megaton ruined the Transporter franchise with number 3, and despite Colombiana having a cool trailer, the film was not. Man cannot direct action.

      It wouldn't be much of a film, no-one would be bothered enough to come rescue you.
