Taylor Lautner transformed himself from a scrawny teenager into a seriously muscled warrior between “Twilight” and “New Moon,” and now, he’s about to become a full-fledged action hero.
MTV News proudly presents the trailer for “Abduction,” Taylor’s incoming action movie from director John Singleton. Taylor himself gave you your first look at the trailer during MTV First: Taylor Lautner earlier tonight, and now it’s here, waiting for you to watch it over and over again.
Go ahead, watch it again. We’ll wait!
So, what did you think? We’ve seen Lautner in action before as Jacob Black in the “Twilight” series, but never quite like this. This is full-tilt combat, with massive explosions and rapid-fire gunplay tearing through sets and characters as easily as a knife cuts through butter. For his part, Taylor more than holds his own in the thick of battle. We get to see the occasional werewolf in full martial arts mode towards the end of the trailer, where Taylor engages an enemy in hand-to-hand combat, and it’s definitely a side of him we haven’t seen before — a side that we like very much, by the way!
Put it on the record that we’re officially very excited for “Abduction,” as if we weren’t intrigued enough already. What did you guys think, though? Do you think Taylor does a good job of channeling his inner Jason Bourne for this trailer, or did it fall flat for you? Let us know in the comments section and on Twitter!
