First Taken 2 poster disappointly does not feature Liam Neeson killing anyone
We all know that Liam Neeson’s punch-happy character from Taken has a “certain set of skills” but they mainly involve sitting down in the first poster for Taken 2.
In what appears to be a rare moment of reflection, the poster shows a glowering Neeson awaiting his prey, with the tagline underneath reading: “First they took his daughter. Now they’re coming for him.” Surely “they” are aware that Neeson’s Bryan Mills character has punched everyone in Europe by this point?
For now, storyline details on the sequel remain sketchy but Neeson was in a talkative mood when speaking to Entertainment Weekly last month, explaining: “Having gone through the horror of the first film, and because of the success of retrieving his daughter, his notoriety has traveled and these major politicians and sheiks want him to be in their camp.
“He organises the security situation. He’s still retired from his special-forces group, but he takes private commissions.”
Also elaborating on the plot set-up for his punching shenanigans, Neeson added: “I’ve taken a job over in Istanbul looking after a sheik who is there, and afterward I discover that my wife’s going through a very bad time with her new husband.”
“So I suggest she and my daughter come over for a few days and hang out with me in this amazing city,” the 59-year-old star continued. “And then… [laughs] all this s**t happens, of course.”
Sounds good to us and thankfully the wait isn’t too long – Taken 2 will smack Irish cinemagoers in the face on October 5.
