TAKEN

Starring Oscar®-Nominee Liam Neeson, The Action Packed Thriller Unleashes On Blu-ray Disc And Two-Disc Extended Cut DVD With Digital Copy May 12 >From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

CENTURY CITY, CA. – A former spy relies on his special skills and killer instinct as he hunts down the men who kidnapped his daughter in Taken, an adrenaline fueled drama available on Blu-ray Disc (BD) and two-disc extended cut DVD with digital copy May 12 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Academy Award®-nominee* Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List) stars as Brian Mills, a former secret agent trained in hand to hand combat who struggles as a divorcee and father of 17-year old Kim (Maggie Grace, “Lost”).  Living with Brian’s ex-wife Lenore (Famke Jansson, X-Men: The Last Stand), Kim rarely gets the chance to see her father, but when she does he is often smothering and overbearing.  When the opportunity arises to travel to Europe with her best friend, Kim convinces her dad to let her go on the trip by leaving out some very important details.  The first stop for the girls is Paris, but hours after they arrive they are victims of a disturbing break-in and abducted by an Albanian criminal organization.  Now, with only 96 hours to find his daughter before she will disappear forever, time is running out and Brian Mills must put his CIA expertise to the test before its too late.

Loaded with action, suspense and excitement at every turn, the Taken Blu-ray Disc and DVD reveal an intense two-disc extended cut of the film with Digital Copy for portable media players.  Additional bonus features include audio commentaries by the director, writer and cinematographers, exclusive behind-the-scenes “making of” featurette and action packed side-by-side comparisons.  Taken will be available to own on Blu-ray Disc for $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada, on two-disc DVD for $34.98 U.S. / $45.98 Canada, and on standard DVD for $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada.  Prebook is April 15.

Very interested in this one as I missed it in the theaters.  Might have to grab the dvd copy though since I'm not sure I'll have a blu-ray player by that point.

I want to know if this Extended Cut is the International Cut, IE: The version the MPAA threatened with the R rating before Fox cut it down to PG-13.

Awesome movie, though. Neeson was a stone-cold bad-ass, and I hope they go ahead with the sequel.
