20th Century Fox finally released a new Taken 3 clip from Olivier Megaton‘s action sequel starring Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, an ex-CIA operative and all-around badass whose family has really had a rough time these last few years. By now we know all about Mills’ “particular set of skills,” but it seems Franck Dotzler (Forest Whitaker) doesn’t quite know what he’s up against yet. Hit the jump to check out the clip and to take a look at the new poster. The film opens in theaters on January 9, 2015.
I like the idea that Mills’ horrifically violent actions have consequences. I like that they’re raising the stakes by killing off Lenore (Famke Janssen) right off the bat. I love that they’re shaking up the formula and not actually having someone get taken. There’s not a lot to be gleaned from this new clip, but I am genuinely excited about this new poster because it bills the film as Taken 3, not the abhorrent Tak3n they were floating around earlier this year.
But how many times can his family get kidnapped?
Then his daughter can be killed so he will avenge her. But what if she going to have children of her own? Here it gets interesting.
