When the anchor actor to a franchise film series goes public disavowing his own on-screen macho persona, the studio is pretty much left holding the bag. Their investment goes south.
So you can expect director Olivier Megaton’s Taken 3, starring Liam Neeson as the very lethal Bryan Mills, to be the end of the line for this successful series.
With a box office haul of $87.6 million, 20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment has picked Apr. 21 for DVD and Blu-ray editions of Taken 3, which yields an ARR of 144 days, which is well-away from Neeson’s ill-conceived comments — he read the script and collected a paycheck, so what’s up with the hypocrisy?
As to bonus features, the Blu-ray SKU comes with two viewing options, the theatrical “PG-13” version and an unrated edition (presumably restoring the trims that would have earned an R-rating), plus a deleted scene and a trio of featurettes.
