Whoa! That’s the first word that came to mind after watching MTV’s EXCLUSIVE premiere of the trailer for Taylor Lautner’s “Abduction,” which hits theaters September 23. Taylor stars as Nathan Price, a teenager who has always felt different. As he says in the trailer: “I walk around like everybody else, but inside I just feel like I’m a stranger in my own life.”
And there’s a reason. After Nathan stumbles across his baby picture on a missing-person’s website, he suddenly becomes involved in a world of mystery and underground spies. Not to mention, he’s been dubbed a “high value asset” by the CIA, and now he’s on the run. (Do I really have to wait until September for answers?!)
After only two and a half minutes, Taylor already looks like a bona fide action star (did you see him avoiding gun shots while sliding down that glass roof?) in this completely different, non-werewolf role. And even though I’m slightly disappointed he appears to remain mostly clothed in the movie, I’m totally digging him as an action hero. He pulls off the fighting, motorcycle riding and general badassness pretty well.
So the moral of the story: I kinda loved the trailer! What did you think? I’m sure the name Taylor Lautner alone already had you pretty excited about the movie, but after seeing the full trailer are you sold on “Abduction?” And on a scale of one to 10, how jealous are you of Lily Collins for sharing that steamy train kiss with Taylor? (OK, we know it’s acting. But that doesn’t keep us from swooning!)
