"America will wake up on Christmas morning to more than 16 million new connected devices under the tree this year, making it the year of the connected consumer," said Mike Dunn, president of Fox Home Entertainment. "The unprecedented explosion of smartphones, tablets and smart TVs give 'Taken 2' a great runway to reach more than 110 million active movie viewers across all of our Digital HD retail partners."
"Our aim is simple: we want 'Taken 2' to be the first movie you enjoy on your new device on Christmas morning," said Mary Daily, President of Worldwide Marketing and Chief Marketing Officer of Fox Home Entertainment. "Early access, HD quality and availability across digital stores at an affordable price are together a very compelling consumer proposition."
In TAKEN 2, Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a "particular set of skills" who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from kidnappers. When the father of one of the villains Bryan killed swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape. Bryan then employs his unique tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers, one by one.
