Video: The first official trailer for Taken 3 is here

“They’ll find you and they’ll stop you.” Whoa, whoa, whoa Forrest Whitaker, didn’t you read the script from the first movie?

“They’ll find you and they’ll stop you.” Whoa, whoa, whoa Forrest Whitaker, didn’t you read the script from the first movie?

We’re not sure how much of a demand there was for a third instalment in the Taken series and we’d also wonder about its longevity considering that the bad guys are running out of people to take, but Liam Neeson is back for the final part of the trilogy, Tak3n, that will hit cinema screens early in the new year.

Today, we got our first glimpse of what’s in store and the tables have turned somewhat as Neeson’s Bryan Mills is falsely accused of a murder that hits close to home and goes on the run to find the real killer and issue his own particular brand of justice.

Forrest Whitaker joins the cast as Inspector Franck Dotzler, the man leading the chase to find Mills, and from what we can gather, the latest episode in the series doesn’t waver too far from the formula that has managed to attract such a cult following in the first place.

Tak3n is due for release in Irish cinemas on January 8, 2015
