Taylor Lautner's Abduction gets a first trailer

And there's a surprising lack of gratuitous shirtless shots...

The first trailer for Abduction, starring The Twilight Saga's Taylor Lautner, has landed online.

The thriller marks the actor's first major attempt at leading a post-Twilight hit, and it also stars Lily Collins, who recently bagged the lead role in Tarsem Singh's Snow White.

Lautner plays Nathan Price, a teen who goes on a Bourne-lite run after discovering that his parents may not be who they say they are.

John Singleton directs the film, which has a surprisingly high-calibre support cast including Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver and Jason Isaacs.

The trailer's hardly inspiring stuff, so don't expect Matt Damon to be losing any sleep.

Check it out for yourself here:

Abduction will be released on 30 September 2011.

Like the trailer? Do you buy Lautner as an action hero? Does the lack of gratuitous torso shots help you to take him more seriously as a thespian? Tell us!

      Oh god, Lautner makes Keanu Reeves look like Marlon Brando. What the hell happened to John Singleton ? is this really the same director who brought us Boyz In Da Hood ?

      This film actually looks really good. Most of you who say it looks s**te wouldnt be saying it if another actor was playing nathan. It's like just because Taylor was in Twilight you label him a bad actor. He's actually pretty decent. It's pretty lame when people hate on Twilight cast's other movies simply because they are in them. Look at K Stews The Runnaways, that was freaking awesome. Give this film a chance , don't hate on it just because of Twilight

      Have to say that looks way better than I thought it was going to be. Molina, Weaver and Isaacs will have me going to see it. Not sure about Lautner's action skills but hell, he's a damn sight less wooden than Pattinson and the parkour and fighting look decent enough.

      This looks absolutely terrible. Laughter acting looks like is actually gone back a few steps and it's not like he was any good in the first place. His delivery of lines is just so over the top it's ridiculous. At least Pattinson is improving with every movie not regressing like this guy.
