The brand-new trailer for Taken 2 was unveiled on Thursday, and it looks like we're in for much more of the same Liam Neeson revenge action that made the first installment so popular this time set against the beautiful backdrop of Istanbul!
Much of the original's cast and crew with the glaring exception being Olivier Megaton replacing previous director Pierre Morel has returned for Taken 2, which finds retired CIA Agent Bryan Mills (Neeson) on vacation in Istanbul with his wife (Famke Janssen) and daughter (Maggie Grace). Mills is soon forced back into action, however, when his wife is taken hostage by a revenge-seeking father (Rade Serbedzija).
Check out the trailer below, and don't miss Taken 2 when it hits theaters on Oct. 5.
