New Abduction trailer lands

Taylor Lautner does action

A new trailer has arrived online for Abduction, Taylor Lautner’s explosive post-Twilight vehicle. And from the looks of it, Lionsgate are going all out to push the shirtless wonder as their next big action hero.

The film sees Lautner as your average happy-go-lucky teen whose world is turned upside down when he finds a baby picture of himself on a missing persons website. In no time at all, the people he thought were his parents are killed, the government are after him and the only option is to go on the run.

Coming off like a teenage Bourne Identity, the trailer whips up a brief synopsis of the film’s identity-crisis storyline before hurtling through a series of bruising set-pieces. Check it out here…



While we’re not entirely convinced by some of Lautner’s delivery (that “Not if I find you first” is pretty clunky) director John Singleton appears to have conjured up some meaty action scenes. And when he’s running, punching, or simply not talking, Lautner certainly looks the part.

On top of that, there’s a rather fearsome supporting cast on display, including Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina, Danny Glover, Jason Isaacs and Maria Bello. The film arrives in cinemas on 30 September 2011.

      My friends and I are tempted to leave the theaters every time this infernal preview is shown before the movie we paid to see. This looks like utter c**p, and I'm sad that so many credible and decent actors are regulating themselves to playing insubstantial, cursory characters billed beneath silly Taylor Lautner. Just because he is beautiful doesn't mean he should be a movie star. There are modeling gigs out there instead.
