Bryan Mills––the character whose name nobody can ever remember, because they just think of him as “Liam Neeson”––has a very particular set of skills, skills which would surely go to waste if terrible shit weren’t continually befalling him and his family.

The first trailer for Taken 3 (or Tak3n, as it prefers to be called), finds Mills––who, at this point, should really be living in a concrete bunker––leading an idyllic, peaceful life in Los Angeles. However, Mills’ days of wine and giant stuffed pandas come to an abrupt end when he is framed for the murder of his ex-wife. Now, he must prove his innocence the only way he knows how: by lunging, shooting bad guys point blank, punching people in the throat, and barking at his daughter over the phone.
