It hardly seemed like the stuff of a trilogy in the making when it debuted in 2008, but Taken made a ton of money while repositioning Liam Neeson as an unlikely late-blooming action hero, so here we are, months away from what's supposedly the final installment in the Taken franchise.

‘Taken 3' Star Liam Neeson Framed for Murder in Film's First Trailer (Video) Liam Neeson is a man on a different kind of mission in the first trailer for “Taken 3,” released Tuesday. The action-heavy franchise has revolved its plots around freeing hostages from the grips of international criminals, but the latest installment focuses on Bryan's (Neeson) attempt to clear his name of a crime he did not commit — the murder of his baby momma Lenore (Famke Janssen).

First Look: Liam Neeson in 'Taken 3,' the Last Chapter of the Franchise If you've seen Liam Neeson kicking asses in Taken and the sequel Taken 2, then you can probably already guess what he looks like in the  forthcoming Taken 3. Regardless, we have a few first look photos from the latest installment of the surprise hit action franchise. However, it sounds like the plot has steered away from what the title actually means as this time it's Neeson's character Mills who is on the run after he's framed for the murder of someone close to him. But these first look photos don't show much ass-kicking or even gun-wielding.

‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ Review: Liam Neeson’s Talking Smack on the Phone Again Universal Pictures Liam Neeson‘s recent career resurgence as a mature action star has been moving along at a fast clip these past few years, and one constant through films like Taken, Taken 2 and Non-Stop (aside from the fisticuffs, respectable budgets and boffo box-office) has been his characters’ penchant for talking tough on a cell phone. The talk mostly consists of warnings, threats and promises for the evil-doers on the other end of the line, but it has quickly become part of his invincible hard-ass repertoire. A Walk Among the Tombstones challenges that persona in many ways.

Interview: Scott Frank Talks 'A Walk Among the Tombstones,' The Western He's Dying To Make, And More Although the trailers and other marketing materials being utilized to sell "A Walk Among the Tombstones" will have you believing that it's another run-of-the-mill Liam Neeson thriller, it is not. The movie is intricate and beautifully done, with one of the finer Neeson performances in recent memory and a twisty- turny crime movie plot (based on a Lawrence Block novel of the same name) and nary a superhero in sight.

Liam Neeson to 'Tell No One' in Adaptation of Harlan Coben's Thriller This weekend, Liam Neeson heads into thriller territory again for Universal Picture in A Walk Among the Tombstones, and he's already in the midst of lining up another one.
