WEB: Trailer Trove 2

*Posted August 8, 2008*

This week's matchup is designed to shed some light on two little known trailers out there. The first is Ricky Gervais' new comedy, Ghost Town. And the second is for Liam Neeson's action thriller Taken. The point for this pairing is that both plots (a jerk who starts seeing dead people and reforms)(a dad/ex spy has to kick butt to get his daughter back) are very much paint-by-numbers plots. We've definitely seen movies like this before, but the difference this time around is the stars. Both actors are good enough to raise the movies above just average. Which do you think is more appealing? My vote lies with Liam Neeson and Shannon from LOST.
