Movie studios have been investing heavily in Taylor Lautner, signing the young star on to every exciting action project in development without seeing whether or not he can truly open a film on his own. It's a risky move, considering the lack of success that his Twilight co-star's Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have had with their films outside the tween-friendly franchise, but by the look of this explosive new trailer for Abduction, he might be able to break the mold.
John Singleton directs this thriller, co-starring Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Maria Bello and more. It focuses on Lautner's character Nathan, who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website. I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised; not just because it doesn't look like the piece of crap that I figured it's be, but because I'm a fan of Singleton and he hasn't put out a picture since Four Brothers in '05. He's back in good form here and I'm interested to see what this flick will do when it hits theaters on September 23rd. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think.
