If this pattern keeps up it will become "spooky trailer" week here on Buzz, starting with yesterday's preview for The Happening. Today I present the trailer for Taken, starring Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Lost's Maggie Grace. I have high hopes for this thriller as it was co-written by Luc Besson, the mind behind one of my favorite movies, The Professional.
Taken follows Neeson's character Bryan, whose daughter (Grace) goes on a fun, innocent trip to Paris with her friend. The scary stuff starts when Bryan gets a panicked call from his daughter as she's being kidnapped.
At first I thought this might be another run-of-the-mill ransom movie, but then Bryan informs the kidnappers that he does not have money, but rather a set of "skills" that makes him a "nightmare for people like them." Scary!
Taken opens in France on February 28, though there's no information yet on a U.S. release date. To check out the trailer, read more.
