I first discovered this French thriller back in December (watch that trailer) and have since been crossing my fingers, hoping that it would somehow make it to America. Another new full trailer for Taken has arrived, courtesy of the official website (taken-lefilm.com), and it brings a new sense of excitement to the table. Liam Neeson stars in this movie co-written by Robert Mark Kamen (of The Transporter) and Luc Besson (of The Professional) about a father who goes on a manhunt after his daughter is kidnapped in Paris. Not only is this trailer cut amazingly well, but this movie just looks awesome.
Why the hell isn't this coming out in the US in February?! How long we do have to wait for this! Fox sadly has the US distribution rights - so I beg them, please bring this over here soon! Or else I'll have to fly to France myself in the end of February just to see this.
Watch the full trailer for Taken:
Taken is directed by Pierre Morel, director of District B13 and long-time cinematographer, and is co-written by Robert Mark Kamen (Kiss of the Dragon, The Transporter) and Luc Besson (The Professional, La Femme Nikita, Fifth Element). The film does not have a US release date set by Fox, but is arriving in France in February 2008. The newest poster for Taken is featured below.

User comment: By: Richardyeah woogie that theyre going to take you part was like wtf! but i guess he knows huh he must have given her instructions on how to lead him to her, wow it looks so awesome, i cant wait, in fact i wanna like find it on dvd or something since it probably wont come out here forever.
User comment: By: woogieWow, didn't see the "they're going to take you" after she hid under the bed part coming at all. This movie is going to be great. How can you go wrong with a story like this? The past works of the writers say enough about the quality of this film.
User comment: By: Andreas ClimentWow, the trailer looks really good. I can't wait to see this! Feels a bit like Oldboy in a good way =)
User comment: By: RyanLooks really good but kinda confusing.

I love the way Liam acts while talking on the phone and the cutting back to him in fights and utilizing his "skills". From the way it looks, it looks like they've taken his daughter portrayed by Maggie Grace (from Lost) whom I almost didn't recognize at first with the dark hair to some sort of slavery ring or such. The fact that Luc Besson's name is on this along with Liam Neeson has me very excited to see this! I can't wait for North American release date for this one! Gotta love the French filmmakers sometimes! They can come out of the woodwork and just kick some serious ass! - By the way, the poster is brilliant!
