Here at TFR, we’re big Taylor Lautner fans (though still debating for our respective teams – Edward, Jacob, et al), so when the trailer for Abduction went live, we had to talk about it.
During the production process of Twilight, Lautner realised he had a choice – bulk up heavily to represent his maturity as a werewolf in New Moon, or walk away from the part. In the space of less than half a year, he’d turned into a muscle machine, something many fans have found to be Jacob’s main drawing point (personally, I just think the idea of a Native American werewolf is pretty damn awesome).
As a result of those muscles, he’s now in Abduction, a thriller about a boy who discovers that the family he’s grown up with are not, in fact, relatives of his, and there are two covert organisations fighting each other to capture him. It’s standard, formulaic stuff, but a good opportunity to hear Lautner talk for thirty seconds without using the words “Bella” or “bloodsucker”.
The trailer’s below, so feel free to enjoy, and no, he’s not topless in it, and shame on you for even asking. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go argue with my fellow TFR writers, as someone just uttered the phrase “team Edward”. The horror.
