I love threats, I receive them all the time from all of you. In fact, I am sure that if I say another offbeat thing about Shatner, I am going to finally get that whoopin’ that I have coming to me. I can only hope that such a whooping would come from Liam Neeson, as I’ve never really considered him to be very formidable. Though, in his upcoming film Taken, in which he plays a former spy who must use his skills to find his daughter after she is kidnapped, Neeson is bringing a whole new level of badass. At least, that is what the marketing campaign would lead us to believe. As evidence of this, behold the newly released poster below.
Taken also stars Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen. It is produced by Luc Besson (Transporter, La Femme Nikita) and directed by Pierre Morel, who made a big splash with District B13 in 2004. It hits theaters on January 30, 2009.
