Fortunately, the buzz from the trailer and from MTV's recent interview with the young star bodes well for the flick, and its September 23 release date cannot come soon enough in our opinion. And it only helps that Lautner has some serious back-up in the movie in the form of costars Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina, Maria Bello and Jason Isaacs.
Lautner has worked with some pretty high profile stars in the past, but he said that he was definitely intimidated by finding out that these actors would be backing him up in a film.
"When I found out that they were going to be in the movie I was ecstatic, but on the same hand, I mean, I was freaking out. I was," Lautner said with a laugh. "But as soon as you meet them, no joke, they are literally the nicest people I've ever met. They put you at complete ease, and it was an honor working with them."
Unsurprisingly, Lautner was extremely grateful to have such an all-star cast surrounding him when he made his breakout as a lead actor. And the fact that they were so supportive only made the experience that much better.
"I was extremely fortunate. I'm so thankful I was surrounded by people like that and it was great," he said. "Overall, I mean, Sigourney, Alfred, Maria Bello, Jason Isaacs, [director] John [Singleton], and Lily [Collins], everybody. I couldn't have done it without all of their help."
