They’ve shortchanged the strapping Irishman on both counts. He’ll make more than double that when the film is done in worldwide theaters. I’ve heard Neeson got paid $12 million upfront for Taken 2, (he got $2 million for the first). 1 year 49 weeks ago via jackiechan

Critics UtilizeTheir "Particular Set of Skills" on Liam Neeson's "Taken 2," and the Aftermath Ain't Pretty

When “Taken” was released four years ago, it was a surprise hit, grossing $145M at the domestic box office despite mixed reviews. With a modest budget of just $25M, it was probably one of Fox’s most profitable films of 2008. It also turned Liam Neeson into an action star. Although I don’t think the title or the premise lends itself well to sequels, that’s didn’t stop Fox from cranking out another one.
