Three years ago, Taken became a runaway box office success off the strength of a movie trailer featuring Liam Neeson intoning a throwdown soliloquy destined to be memorized in fraternity houses for generations. You see, Liam Neeson has a very particular set of skills. Skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for anyone who wants to threaten his family. The trailer for Taken 2 confirms that this time around, Neeson’s wife gets kidnapped on a trip to Istanbul, leading to roof-jumping and the decimation of the entire Albanian mob. “What are you going to do?” asks Liam Neeson’s daughter. “What I do best,” he says. Can’t wait for Taken 3: The Albanian Stole Grandma! Watch the trailer:
