Lionsgate has really embraced the idea of taking things to the fans with massive Facebook pushes for not only The Hunger Games, but Taylor Lautner’s upcoming Bourne-esque actioner Abduction, which is set to hit theaters on September 23.
The film is directed by John Singleton and features Lautner as a teen who has long felt disconnected from his parents, and figures out why, which unleashes a chain of violent events. Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Sigourney Weaver, Denzel Whitaker and Michael Nyqvist co-star.
I’ve included the new trailer below along with a longer synopsis if you need more information. For stills and poster images click here.
Taylor Lautner stars as a young man unwittingly thrust into a deadly world of covert espionage in Lionsgate’s action-thriller, Abduction, directed by John Singleton.
For as long as he can remember, Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) has had the uneasy feeling that he’s living someone else’s life. When he stumbles upon an image of himself as a little boy on a missing persons website, all of Nathan’s darkest fears come true: he realizes his parents are not his own and his life is a lie, carefully fabricated to hide something more mysterious and dangerous than he could have ever imagined.
Just as he begins to piece together his true identity, Nathan is targeted by a team of trained killers, forcing him on the run with the only person he can trust, his neighbor, Karen (Lily Collins). Every second counts as Nathan and Karen race to evade an army of assassins and federal operatives. But as his opponents close in, Nathan realizes that the only way he’ll survive â€“ and solve the mystery of his elusive biological father — is to stop running and take matters into his own hands.
