Liam Neeson and Stephen Colbert star in Candy Crush: The Movie

Taken it to microtransactions

Stephen Colbert continues his streak of being super video game friendly by creating Candy Crush: The Movie starring himself and Liam Neeson (best known for sci-fi classic Krull and the Taken trilogy).

The clip starts with Colbert talking up the recent news of Activision Blizzard buying King, the maker of Candy Crush, as well as the company’s opening of a movie studio to produce films and television shows based on its IPs.

Liam Neeson acts his ass off in this clip, showing that he deserves better than Taken and Taken-like films. Personally, I’m just hoping for a Krull sequel.
