ABDUCTION is his first Lead Role that Lautner’s been cast in outside of the Twilight series and to be honest with you by looking at the trailer it looks pretty damn good, solid cast, decent plot and by the looks of it plenty of action. Roadshow has just passed through a press release telling us hes on his way to our shores to promote his upcoming movie ABDUCTION.
Taylor Lautner (Twilight, Valentine’s Day) will head to Australia this month to promote his new action-thriller, ABDUCTION, directed by John Singleton.
Lautner will meet and greet fans on the red carpet in Melbourne (August 21) and Sydney (August 23) before attending private screenings for a select few lucky competition winners.
In ABDUCTION, Nathan Harper (Lautner) has had the uneasy feeling that he’s been living someone else’s life for as long as he can remember. When he stumbles upon an image of himself as a boy on a missing persons website, all of Nathan’s darkest fears come true: he realises his parents are not his own and his life is a lie, carefully fabricated to hide something more mysterious and dangerous than he could have ever imagined. Unwittingly thrust into a deadly world of covert espionage, Nathan is targeted by a team of trained killers, forcing him on the run with the only person he can trust, his neighbour, Karen (Lily Collins). Every second counts as Nathan and Karen race to evade an army of assassins and federal operatives. But as his opponents close in, Nathan realises that the only way he’ll survive – and solve the mystery of his elusive biological father – is to stop running and take matters into his own hands.
ABDUCTION also stars Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Denzel Whitaker, Michael Nyqvist and Sigourney Weaver.
ABDUCTION releases in cinemas nationally on September 22, 2011 and is yet to be rated.
