Taylor Lautner is about to make the leap from teen heartthrob to actual proper action star with his new movie Abduction.
The trailer for the film has just made it onto to the internet, and the Twilight star makes full use of his bulging muscles thanks to a fight scene, a major stunt involving a bit of free running and sliding down a glass-fronted structure. There’s also a big explosion and some snogging.
As for the plot, Tay-Tay plays a teen who discovers a picture of himself on a missing persons website, he then has to go on the run to discover this truth about his real identity.
Abduction also stars Lily Collins (of Phil Collins and being cast in Snow White fame), as well as Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Michael Nyqvist and Sigourney Weaver.
So what do you think of Taylor as an action hero? Has it got what it takes to be the new Matt Damon?
