Neeson takes revenge to next level

Liam Neeson's retired CIA agent character Bryan Mills returns to show off his "particular set of skills" again in the thrilling new trailer for Taken 2.

Hit action thriller Taken saw Bryan dashing around the streets of Paris, taking no prisoners as he attempted to find and save his teenage daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) following her kidnap while on holiday.

In the sequel, the father of one of the villains Bryan killed in Paris is out for revenge and kidnaps his wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) while the family are holidaying in Istanbul.

Liam returns to ruthless revenge mode, amidst the stunning backdrop of the Turkish city, leaving no stone unturned in the hunt for his wife.

Meanwhile, he sends daughter Kim to fend for herself on the run, to prevent her falling victim to another kidnap, while he attempts to save Lenore. Bryan tells his daughter: "This is not a game."

With a gun pointed at the head of one man, Bryan growls: "If I kill you, your other sons will come and seek revenge," before adding menacingly: "Then I will kill them too!"

The film is directed by Olivier Megaton and co-written and produced by The Fifth Element director Luc Besson, who wrote the first film.

The highly anticipated follow up to cult hit Taken is released in cinemas on October 5, 2012.
