Taylor Lautner - Abduction

Lionsgate has revealed a new poster via Yahoo for their upcoming action film Abduction, starring Taylor Lautner, Alfred Molina, Lily Collins, directed by John Singleton (watch the trailer). After criticizing the last poster for being pretty much a Jason Bourne-ripoff, this new poster follows in the same footsteps, but at least has a unique flare of its own with a crazy shot of Lautner sliding down the face of a building. To be honest, I thought it looked pretty cool, worth sharing. Then again, it's heavily Photoshopped and looks a little too squeaky clean, especially if they're going for that Bourne feel again. That said, check it out anyway.

Abduction Poster

A riveting new man-on-the-run thriller centered on a teen named Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) who sets out to uncover the truth about his real life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website.

Abduction is directed by veteran action filmmaker John Singleton, of Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice, Rosewood, Shaft, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Four Brothers previously. The screenplay was written by newcomer Shawn Christensen, a songwriter and screenwriter also of the Walter King and Enter Nowhere scripts. Lionsgate is bringing Abduction to theaters everywhere starting September 23rd this fall. Look any good?

    This is like one of those in-joke-posters within a movie, you know, those over the top posters of some ridiculously over the top film, showing how Hollywood is all messed up.

    Who cares if its photoshopped. Its not about the poster, its about the film. And who cares if hes gay or not, dont be so homophobic. 
  • Adam
    If he had acting chops I still wouldn't be excited for this. What a waste.
  • Tom New
    Im not entirely sure how Lautner has managed to become a movie front man so quickly after not actually being in any decent movies as a sidekick. Saying that, it is a Singleton movie.

      The women, for some strange reason, love his pug face.

    This really doesn't make any sense.  It looks like another Inception poster...except those buildings were meant to be out of place
  • Film Fan
    Lautner showed a clip from this on Jimmy Kimmel a few weeks ago and it looks absolutely horrible.

    Reminds me of Adjustment Bureau and Inception posters.  I feel kinda bad for most of the Twilight cast; it'll always be hard for them to step out of the shadow of that hugely successful (why?!) franchise and establish themselves as serious actors.  Lautner might be a little beefcake, but his face is still a little too pudgy and babyface-y for me to buy him as a Mini-Bourne.
  • Sparks flying from shoes, nice.

    If the last one was a borne rip off i feel like this ones an inception rip off then...
  • Paulyname
    yep, an 19 year old boy with a gun... fantastic... ¬¬
  • Lamar
     I bet there won't be a single scene like that in the movie. Oh well, as long as he can keep his shirt on, I'll see it. What they should do is make Sharkboy and Lavagirl 2.

    I'll give the kid a chance.  This kind of movie looks to be aimed at a 16+, not quite bourne but older than Cody Banks. 
  • Jordan Edwards
    shouldnt this be a first quarter release?
    • nate
      When you say first quarter, you mean kids get in to see this junk with only 25 cents, right?
