His ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) has been murdered, and Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) has been wrongly accused of committing the crime. Like famous non-wife-killers before him such as Harrison Ford, he will have to go on the run to clear his name and identify those who actually did do it. Will there be a one-armed man involved? In Taken 3, all things are possible.

The aging Neeson can still kick plenty of ass, and even with Forest Whitaker leading the manhunt to bring him down, it seems a certainty that there will be plenty of creative kills pulled off by the slippery former CIA agent. If the final quote of this first trailer doesn’t get you fired up for January 9, you might want to check your pulse.
