I need you to listen to me carefully … Liam Neeson is back in his role as Bryan Mills, the ex-CIA operative/stone-faced agent of justice, in “Taken 2.”
Yes, the first trailer for the sequel to the successful 2009 flick has arrived. Here, Mills and his family are on vacation in Istanbul, Turkey, when Mills’ wife (Famke Janssen) is taken (!) by the same guys who ran the prostitution ring his daughter was sold into during the first film. (Apparently they’re still upset about the unflinching swath of destruction that Mills wreaked on their associates, and are now seeking revenge.)
It should be no surprise that the seemingly invincible Mills is hellbent on getting his wife back, by threatening to do what he does best. (From the looks of the trailer, that means using guns, exploding cars, and lots of running through the streets of Istanbul.)
You can check out the trailer for “Taken 2″ (not “Taken Again” Or “Double-Taken”? C’mon!) above. The film hits theaters October 5.
“Ash of the Titans”
In this apocalyptic sequel, the Lava Titan reduces all of Olympus and earth to a giant pile of ashes. “Evil Dead” fans are massively disappointed that the film <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxJsN7tnBDE” target=”_hplink”>does not star this Ash</a>.
“Bath of the Titans”
After getting good and grimy for two whole movies, Perseus is in desperate need of a bath! Sam Worthington shows off his half-God bod at a local bathhouse. Clad only in a towel for the entire movie, he wonders why <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc3b7MP4pyw” target=”_hplink”>people keep offering him snails <i>and</i> oysters</a>. Watch out for the Kraken’s dramatic reappearance in the Olympic-sized pool.
“Cash of the Titans”
With the “Titans” franchise failing at the box office, Liam Neeson offers audience members cold hard cash in exchange for seeing the movie.
“Death of the Titans”
All bloated film franchises must come to an end: in this film, the Gods and Titans are pitted against each other in a “Hunger Games”-style contest. Who will survive? The odds favor warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) <a href=”http://news.moviefone.com/2012/03/21/female-archers-katniss-princess-merida_n_1370190.html” target=”_hplink”>who wields a mean bow-and-arrow</a>.
“Rash of the Titans”
Perseus must travel to the ends of the earth to find a cure for a nasty rash he picked up in the previous film.
“Sash of the Titans”
Who’s the fairest of them all? Enraged by Cassiopeia’s claims that her daughter is the most beautiful, the goddesses and mortals compete in a beauty contest to settle the question once and for all. Charlize Theron (hyped up on her “Evil Queen” stint) stars as Aphrodite, who turns into a giant sea monster and eats the hearts of all the competitors.
“‘Stache of the Titans”
In this installment, Zeus’s impressive mustache rebels and breaks free from his follicular-brethren. By Zeus’s beard, it takes an entire army to reunite the god’s facial hair.
