Dailies | ‘Taken 2' Trailer: Liam Neeson Proves He's a Bad-Ass, Again

Liam Neeson returns in Olivier Megaton's "Taken 2," but this time, he's the one who's been nabbed

Liam Neeson continues his big-screen streak of bad-assery in "Taken 2."

The film follows retired CIA operative Bryan Mills (Neeson) to Istanbul, where his loving wife Lenore (Famke Jannsen) and daugther Kim (Maggie Grace) surprise him with a visit. 

Unbeknownst to the family, the father of Kim's kidnapper in 2008's "Taken," whom Bryan killed while rescuing her, is on a bloodthirsty quest for vengeance and retribution, and Bryan and Lenore are taken hostage. 

Heavy gunfire ensues as Bryan and Lenore try to escape, and an apparently not-so-innocent Kim tries to evade the kidnappers yet again.

For those who can't stand the suspense until the film's Oct. 5 release, here's a glimpse of "Taken 2" — with the inevitable "We're going to be taken" phone call, of course.
