Does anyone else recognise the 2 in this logo for Taken 2?

Closer inspection reveals they are not the same:

You can see several differences. For example the height, and the width of the top part.

Although, when you stretch it to fill the Taken font, you see almost perfect match:

Still, it has differences. Probably made by different guys. Just a lucky coincidence. Nobody can sue nobody!

Oh, and that movie sucked, IIRC. Taken was awesome.

It's bold and red and the same font in the same general palette.

It looks same font, but there are differences enough to declare otherwise.

It is the same font. As your own pictures show, the number and the letters have been stretched.

It's a crude typographic effect to make the super-bold weight seem ultra-bold.

Or even...

M-M-M-MONSTER BOLD!!!

No, its not. The curvatures are different. Stretching doesn't explain that at all. And I already stretched it to match the same size, yet, differences appear to be there. Especially the upper-left part of the number; it's a lot wider than the lower part.
