    The premise of the "Taken" franchise is simple: someone gets taken, and then Liam Neeson kicks a bunch of ass to get them back.

    Liam Neeson Joins Martin Scorsese's 'Silence,' Zachary Quinto Targets 'Hitman' Sequel 'Agent 47' & More

    This week “The Dallas Buyers Club” opens (you can read our review here), and it features a riveting, committed, physically gruelling and very likely-to-be-Oscar-nominated performance by Matthew McConaughey.

    Watch: Liam Neeson Uses His Special 'Taken' Skills On A Plane In Trailer For 'Non-Stop'
