Hollywood superstar Liam Neeson is coming to Dubai for the regional premiere of his latest movie, Taken 3.

The Irish actor – who also appeared in Schindler’s List, Michael Collins, Batman Begins and Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace – will attend a red-carpet gala screening at Dubai’s Novo Cineplex on January 12.

Tickets for the event cost Dh100, including a bucket of popcorn and a soft drink. Doors open at 6.30pm, with the red carpet arrivals at 7.15pm, and the screening at 8pm.

Neeson returns as former covert operative Bryan Mills in Taken 3. This time, his reconciliation with his ex-wife following the events of Taken 2 is cut tragically short when she is murdered. Consumed with rage and framed for the crime, he goes on the run from the CIA, FBI and police as, for one last time, he is forced to use his unique set of skills to track down the killers, exact his unique brand of justice and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.

The film will go on general release on January 15 and tickets for the event are on sale now at
