Following the hostage-themed plots of “Taken” and “Taken 2,” “Taken 3” puts Neeson’s ex-operative character Bryan Mills in the eyes of the U.S. government when he is framed for the murder of his ex-wife (Famke Janssen). The suspicious death puts Mills on the run again to protect his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace), the only family he has left.
“Taken 3,” stylized as “Tak3n,” adds Forest Whitaker to the cast as police inspector Franck Dotzler, who leads the hunt for Mills. Olivier Megaton, who directed “Taken 2,” returns to direct the final installment in the series.
“Taken 3” bows in theaters Jan. 9, 2015.

Back in 2008, the Pierre Morel directed and Luc Besson produced (and co-written) Taken gave Liam Neeson a surprising career resurgence as an action hero. Not to mention, it was pretty awesome to say the least. Olivier Megaton’s Taken 2 in 2012 was not nearly as awesome and was just more of the same, but a worse version of it. Megaton, Besson, and Neeson are back for Taken 3, which is being referred to as Tak3n (yep, that’s what’s on the poster). Before the groans start, the trailer for the film actually looks kind of badass. No one is taken, at least not in the trailer, there is no foreign country in sight, and Neeson’s character, Bryan Mills, looks to be in a very different situation than in his previous outings. It is probably best to remain cautiously optimistic on this one before it is released on January 9, 2015. Watch the trailer below. »

Because Liam Neeson is the new Charles Bronson, he doesn't need a wife. Her only use is being disposed of, so he can exact his unique form of justice with his special set of skills avenging her death... At least that's what appears to be going on in the trailer for Tak3n (yup, that's the way they want us to write Taken 3 for now at least) - the latest in what is essentially a new Death Wish series. And I have no problem with that whatsoever.Liam Neeson is back as Bryan Mills for another bullet ballet, mofos. Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace also return, along with director Olivier Megaton and Forest Whitaker. I cannot wait....

Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, in Tak3n (aka Taken 3), whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.

The third time doesn’t seem to be the charm for Bryan who, having previously rescued both his daughter in 2008 and his wife in 2012, butchering a slew of kidnappers and thugs along the way, is once again faced with trauma. After his wife is brutally murdered, Bryan finds himself at the centre of a police manhunt who identify him as the prime suspect in her death after the real killers, who hold a pretty big grudge, have framed our hero for her murder in Taken 3 (or Tak3n, as it were).
We have the Taken franchise to thank for cementing Neeson’s ass-kicking dark hero persona. Sure, he fought Batman, commanded a submarine, and knew his way around a gun before Taken, but that 2008 film paved the way for the take-no-prisoners roles »

What if Doctor Richard Kimble was less a doctor and more an ex-cia operative with a "particular set of skills?" That seems to be, at least on the face of it, the direction the "Taken" series is going with the upcoming "Taken 3" (or "Tak3n" if you prefer). With the movie opening in January, the time has come for the first trailer to arrive. You can see up above just what returning director Olivier Megaton and Liam Neeson have in store for us come the new year. In short, the plot of "Taken 3" centers on Neeson's Bryan Mills going after the murderers of his ex-wife (Famke Janssen). The world, naturally, believes that Mills himself is guilty of the murder and Forest Whitaker is taking on the Tommy Lee Jones role, tracking Mills down. Because this is in fact "Taken 3" and not "The Fugitive," there doesn't seem to be a one-armed man in the new trailer, »

Blimey. Now we know why Team Taken – please don’t make us keep calling it Tak3n – were keeping quiet about the plot for the third outing of The Bryan Mills’ Special Skills ‘N’ Kills Jamboree – they’re going dark. Check out what we mean in the first trailer for the film, and beware first-act spoilers. In this one, Bryan (Liam Neeson) starts happy, in a good place with daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) and closer than ever to reconciling with ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen). But then something terrible happens: Lenore is taken away for good and Bryan is the prime suspect in her murder.Pursued by the CIA, the FBI and the police (seems like a lot of manpower to us, but then, this is Mills), across Los Angeles, he goes on the run to track down the real killers and introduce them to his particular brand of vengeful, rage-driven justice. »
Above you can enjoy the Taken 3 trailer (or Tak3n, I suppose), the third film in the Taken franchise starring Liam Neeson. This time it’s really really really personal — someone has framed him for murdering his wife (Famke Janssen) and is threatening to take out his daughter (Maggie Grace) as well. So now he is on the run trying to unravel this web of lies while being pursued by what sounds like every law enforcement agency imaginable. It’ll be here in January, directed by Taken 2 helmer Olivier Megaton. Gird. Your. Loins.

Following the first photos and plot details for Taken 3, 20th Century Fox has unleashed the trailer and poster for this action-packed thriller that flips the script on the whole franchise.
Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his "particular set of skills," to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now - his daughter.
Maggie Grace returns as Bryan's daughter Kim, along with Leland Orser as Sam and Jon Gries as Casey. New cast members include Forest Whitaker as Franck Dotzler, one of the many law enforcement officials trying to bring Bryan in, »
Liam Neeson is back — and for the last time? — in “Taken 3,” which finds the man with a very specific set of skills once again taking on a variety of foes — this time it’s the Lapd! And, uh, Forest Whitaker, too. The poster for the film also declares that “It ends here,” which likely means this is the last movie in the series. Makes sense, since they’re killing off the wife played by Famke Janssen. I mean, what’s left, killing off the daughter? Not gonna happen. Anyhoos. Check out your first trailer and poster for Olivier Megaton’s “Taken 3.” I’m not going to dignify the movie’s attempt at a “clever” title by typing it out.

"I'm going to finish this." At the end of Taken 2, it seemed like Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) was on the path of getting back together with his ex-wife (Famke Janssen) and giving his daughter (Maggie Grace) the love he always wanted her to have. But in the first trailer for Taken 3 (or Tak3n if you want to be clever), we see that all that is cut short when Mills is framed for the murder of his ex-wife and is forced to go on the run from the law. Sadly, this time his special set of skills have him looking much more suspicious than heroic as he tries to prove his innocence and find out who is responsible for this tragedy. Watch the trailer! Here's the first trailer for Olivier Megaton's Taken 3 straight from 20th Century Fox: Taken 3 is directed by Olivier Megaton (Taken 2) and written by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, »

“I’m going to finish this,” grumbles Bryan Mills in the recently-released trailer for Taken 3 (or Tak3n, as it’s currently being marketed). Liam Nesson’s weathered protagonist has fought off waves and waves of Albanian henchman, travelled half-way around the world to save his daughter — literally — and just when you thought he was out in the clear and ready for a well-deserved beer, he’s back for one more job. No, really, this is the last job.
Reuniting with Maggie Grace and Famke Jenssen, the threequel will see Nesson’s character forced to go on the run after he is framed for murder. With no one to trust but himself, he must ensure the safety of his daughter all the while avoiding Forest Whitaker’s lawful enforcer, who makes it his bidding to hunt down and bring in the ex-cia agent.

So many things have been taken from ex-government operative Bryan Mills. In the first “Taken” movie, he had to track down his daughter after she was kidnapped by human traffickers and sold into sexual slavery while traveling in France. In “Taken 2” it was payback. The father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter took Mills and his wife hostage. In “Taken 3” (also known as "Tak3n") Liam Neeson returns as Mills, but no, it’s not what’s left of his dignity that’s taken this time. This time he’s out for revenge. Kidding. This time, he’s framed for a murder he didn’t commit (much more original, no?) Produced and written by Luc Besson, the filmmaker has always used his protégés to helm his action thrillers. Pierre Morel launched his career with the first one and Olivier Megaton (who directed "Colombiana" with Zoe Saldana) helmed the second. »

The action sequel sees Neeson's retired Bryan Mills framed for murder and on the run from the Us government and European terrorists.
Neeson recently suggested that Tak3n will be the final film in the series.
When asked by Digital Spy what he would like to see happen to the franchise, he quipped: "It finish."
Tak3n will be released on January 8, 2015 in the UK and January 9 in the Us. »
After two successful movies featuring a weary Bryan Mills traveling around the world killing criminals to protect his family, "Tak3n" looks to inject a few twists in what could be the final film of the franchise.
Based on the trailer, it looks like Neeson's character will be on the run from the law after mysterious forces frame him for murder. While his daughter, Kim, (played once again by Maggie Grace) won't be kidnapped again (that would just be lousy parenting after all) it looks like Neeson will have to keep her safe from the same people that want him dead or thrown in prison.
