If you’re finding yourself not quite feeling the holiday vibe yet, maybe watching Liam Neeson crack some skulls to a punk-rock version of The 12 Days of Christmas while promoting Taken 3 will inspire your yuletide spirit.
Fox released this new promotional video titled The 12 Skills of Christmas to promote Neeson’s third turn as all-around badass Bryan Mills. We're not sure how far they'll be able to take this franchise (Will Mills battle an alien army next? Cause we'd watch that), but this new clip does a nice job showcasing all the ways Neeson is gonna kick the crap out of men much younger than him in the new film. Here’s the plot breakdown, just in case you couldn’t piece it together from all the mayhem in the video.
“Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his 'particular set of skills' to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.”
So, it’s basically Taken crossed with The Fugitive. We're okay with that.
Rock out to the clip above. Taken 3 is set to punch out the competition on January 9.
