"Taken" was an unexpected hit when it was released in 2008, turning formerly serious actor Liam Neeson into an unlikely action icon and legitimizing (to a degree, at least), French filmmaker Luc Besson's place as a kind of Euro-trash Roger Corman. Well, a sequel has finally been shaped, all these years later, and based on the latest "internet trailer" (complete with winky Neeson introduction), it looks like it's keen to recapture the same junky fun of the original.

In case you missed the plethora of "Taken 2" pics from a couple of days ago, a whole new batch of images have dropped. And these are notable mostly because they now contain what is probably our favorite movie still of the year so far: Liam Neeson enjoying the simple pleasure of a milkshake in a delightfully retro diner. This must be before he leaves for Instanbul, right? Either way, it feels lifted out of a completely different movie, perhaps one where Neeson plays a retired schoolteacher who solves mysteries in a small town. Man, we'd pay to see that movie.

On the one hand, Bryan Mills had his daughter kidnapped, so you can understand why he would stop at nothing to get her back. On the other hand, if you were the dad of all those dudes who were wasted -- sometimes rather horrifically -- you could see why vengeance might be on the agenda. These are the moral complexities at play in "Taken 2," with Liam Neeson back to once again talk with menacing authority into a cell phone.

"Listen carefully to me Kim, your mother and I are going to be taken." BOOM. That's pretty much all you need to know about Liam Neeson's continued career as an ass-kicker in "Taken 2," which has dropped a new international spot with a few brief new snippets of action excitement.

A handful of new pics from upcoming films has landed in the pages of Entertainment Weekly over the past few weeks. We've rounded up some of them here for your viewing pleasure. First up is "This Is 40," Judd Apatow's quasi-sequel to "Knocked Up," starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann alongside Apatow and Mann's real-life kids. Apatow has been veering more towards drama lately, and this looks like another step in that direction, with the pic centering on Mann's Debbie as she turns 40 and finds renewed energy to raise her kids right, fix the problems in her relationship and remain fit and attractive. The trailer was very promising, and the December 21st release is surely a sign of studio confidence.

In "Taken," the 2008 French thriller produced by Luc Besson and directed by Pierre Morel, unlikely action-star Liam Neeson played Bryan Mills, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative who sets about tracking down his daughter (Maggie Grace) after she is kidnapped by human traffickers while traveling in France. The picture has truly been film a turning point in Neeson's career redefining the actor as a successful action film star.

Man, what does Bryan Mills have to do to get some rest? After dispatching a bunch of Albanians (who, as one commenter noted, are organized enough to round up all the bodies scattered from probable crime scenes all over the place for a mass burial) all Bry wants to do is chill with his wife Famke Janssen, maybe get some action of the horizontal kind (if you know what we mean), and bust some cold hangs in Istanbul? What could possibly go wrong?

Fresh off the shadow-clad, seated brooding he was doing in the UK quad “Taken 2” poster, Liam Neeson is back again in the same sort of mood, along with posters for the Sundance flick “The Words,” and a children's book adaptation from the director of “The Mighty Boosh.”

You would think that after having problems with Albanian mafia in "Taken," Bryan Mills might decide to kick back and relax in America...how about Hawaii? Not so. Instead he takes his wife to Istanbul, and Kim (Maggie Grace) pops her head in as a suprise and before you know it, half the script for "Taken 2" is written.

Poster time. First up, it's "The Expendables 2," wherein Sylvester Stallone brings back his geriatric action team, including Jet Li, Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren, along with Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean-Claude Van Damme. We're generally against it, but thank god for Photoshop touchups, as this is a ghastly looking sausage party. The original film started out slow at the box office, but eventually crawled to a very respectable $274 million worldwide. Presumably the sequel can at least duplicate those numbers, otherwise, what’s the point? “The Expendables 2” is set for an August 17th release.
