I think it’s fair to say the original Taken was, and indeed still is, a guilty pleasure for most of us – it certainly is as far as the Movie Ramblings team are concerned.

Which is why, even though the trailers suggest simply more of the same, we are pretty stoked for Taken 2.

Well, Fox are amping up the coverage with a pre-release publicity blitz, one piece of which is the video below.

Essentially the hard-hitting trailer for the film interspersed with chat from Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen etc, it is still all very entertaining.

We get to see the film next week, so expect a full review ahead of its October 4 cinema release.
