In a recent interview with MTV, Liam Neeson said that when he read the script for his surprise hit “Taken” a few years ago he thought it would make a decent B-movie, but more importantly, it would allow him to do some physical action stuff. Turns out, the movie became a massive hit. “Taken” has a lot of similarities with Neeson’s “Unknown”, and obviously the producers would love for you to keep thinking that, given how similar “Unknown’s” poster looks to “Taken’s”. Not entirely sure if the two films are THAT similar, but “Unknown” certainly looks intriguing by itself. Check out five clips from it below.
Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife (January Jones) suddenly doesn’t recognize him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired, and on the run. Aided by an unlikely ally (Diane Kruger), Martin plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he’s willing to go to uncover the truth.
Starring Liam Neeson, January Jones, Diane Kruger, Frank Langella, Aidan Quinn and directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.
