* Last week we posted a trailer for TAK3N, and I made the statement that I need certain things from certain movies. From throat punch movies, I need them to be throat punchier… from Fast / Furious movies, I need them to be fast and furiouser… and from Paul Thomas Anderson, I need them to be Paul Thomas Andersonier…. Judging from the trailer, I think I got my wish here.
