Offering a sneak peek at the highly anticipated prequel, 20th Fox Century has just released the first trailer for "Taken 2".

The action-packed footage features Liam Neeson showing off his CIA-tactics to yet again bring a family member back home safely.

"The Grey" actor slips back into his character as Bryan Mills, a retired CIA operative, and the action picks up when his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) and ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) pay him a surprise visit in Istanbul - which happens to be the same time that an Albanian gang is seeking revenge against Mills.

The film follows Liam's character as he and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter in the 2008 film, "Taken".

Check out the trailer for "Taken 2" with the movie set to hit theaters on October 5.
