Remember those rumors that “Taken 2″ would turn the tables, with instead of the daughter being “taken”, it would be the father, Bryan Mills this time around and it would be up to Maggie Grace’s character to save the day? That didn’t really seem to be true when the first trailer for the sequel landed, but as you can see from this shorter French trailer, that plot point was indeed correct. Or at least, it was for a while, since I doubt if Mills is going to spend the entire movie being taken. What kind of movie would that be, after all?
In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter.
Starring Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Rade Serbedzija, Leland Orser, Luke Grimes, and directed by Olivier Megaton.
Taking it back to the bad guys October 5, 2012.
