Unknown image Liam Neeson Unknown Trailer #2 & TV Spots

In 2008, veteran actor Liam Neeson proved himself a competent modern day action star with the surprise hit Taken, some say even giving Jason Bourne a run for his money… and that’s saying something!. Now Neeson is back in action with Unknown, a new mystery thriller co-starring January Jones (X-Men: First Class, Mad Men) and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds).

Way back in October of last year we got a look at the official trailer for Unknown. Today we have a new trailer and three TV spots to try and get us excited about the movie. But before we get to them, let’s remind ourselves of the plot:

A man (Neeson) awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife), believes him. With the help of a young woman (Kruger), he sets out to prove who he is.

Now that you’re clued in – certainly a lot more than Neeson’s character! 😛 – check out the latest trailer and TV spots for Unknown:


The trailer doesn’t provide us with much in the way of new footage and basically acts as a condensed version of the official trailer we saw last year. However, the TV spots do give us some fresh footage that hints at what might really be going on with Neeson’s character. For instance, in the third TV spot we hear Neeson talking about going insane – could it be that Neeson really is crazy and that he isn’t Dr. Martin Harris after all? Or is that exactly what these mysterious people who appear to have stolen his identity want him to think?

I look forward to unraveling the mystery when Unknown opens in a few weeks’ time. Although the film doesn’t look to be anything overly memorable and certainly not a mystery/thriller classic, at the very least it should provide for some nice twists and turns, as well as a platform for Neeson to kick ass once again.

Unknown opens in U.S. theaters on February 18th, 2011.

  1. This movie looks really good.

    • Let me know how it was after you’ve seen it. :)

  2. Loved Taken… when I saw one of these spots on TV, at first I got excited thinking this was a sequel. This is even better.

    • It almost has a Luc Besson feel to it.

  3. I’m going to call it right now. Liam Neeson’s character is an undercover secret agent as is his wife. When he gets into a car accident his memory is only of the character he is disguised as. The agency sends in another agent to replace him.

    Neeson believes the lie. Much like Total Recall’s protagonist. In the end he may prefer to live the lie than be an agent.

    BOOM! I called it. Predictable.

    • 😉

  4. This reminds me a lot of The Net, with Sandra Bullock. Looks good though, can’t wait to see it.

  5. Another Taken but with a twiiist! – I’m in.

  6. Liam Neeson will probably make it watchable but what an unoriginal idea.

    • indeed.

  7. I agree Thandrale,,,

    And your gravatar is freeky cool.

    • That’s a mask Rick Baker did for a movie. It’s called “The Elder”. I just thought it fit my crusty old curmudgeon persona.

  8. “Taken 2: The Reckoning”

    I’m in.



  9. Good lighting,,,


  10. As Taken was absolutely brilliant, it made me wish Neeson had played Bond in the 90s when he was offered the part, I will definitely be seeing this. Neeson makes any film he is involved with instantly better, he is a reason to see a film.

    I’m in. And I’d like to see Taken 2 please!

    • I wonder though why Neeson would pick such a derivative movie to do. Surely he gets better material than this offered him?

      • He’s just one of those kinds of actors, like Nic Cage, they do whatever they are offered. Good work ethic if you ask me. And Neeson elevates even the most basic material just by being awesome.

        Look at Taken, on paper it sounds dull as ditchwater, but it was one of the best action films of the decade.

  11. TAKEN also hit home and hard for those of us dads who have daugters, a deep level of emotion that few movies are able to do to men.

  12. It’s look like a good movie, maybe a mix of Bourne and The Fugitive.
