‘Second time’s the charm’

Sofia Guevara, Staff Writer

Upcoming film releases include enticing sequels of past popular films. Which one will be successful at the box office? Which one will break their past film records?

Taken 2

Three year ago Taken opened in theaters, which starred Liam Neeson as retired CIA agent, Bryan Mills. Mills’ world turned upside down when his daughter was kidnapped in Europe.

With unstoppable determination he was able to rescue her from being sold into prostitution. But now, the father of the kidnapper is coming after him and his wife.  Mills will once again use strategic planning to secure the safety of the most valuable thing to him; his family.

Taken 2 has stirred its fan base with its return. It is a sequel that will have you on the edge of your seat.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2

In the last installment of the dramatic romance series, Twilight characters must unite and fight to protect the human-vampire child Renesmee from the Volturi in Breaking Dawn- Part 2.

Though it may seem to be a drawn out love story, it is the end of a significant saga. In the mist of Bella enjoying her new powers and her new born baby Renesmee, the Volturi are informed of Renesmees birth and see her as a threat to their existence.

The Cullens gather as many alliances as possible for the last battle to protect their family. This is the highly anticipated end of the Twilight series; some may even say the end of an era.
