On November 16, 2012, the final "Twilight" movie will come out, and Taylor Lautner will have to prove he's not just that guy with the abs. He's got plenty of projects on his plate, and the first of these is "Abduction," which opens in September, about six weeks before "Breaking Dawn Part 1" does.
On paper, "Abduction" sounded interesting, a story about a teenager who discovers that nothing he knew about his life is true and that the people posing as his parents are hiding something.
Discovering that his life is a lie, running around desperately, intoning his every line of dialogue as if he was just now beamed onto the planet Earth, Lautner is terribly, awfully, embarrassingly wooden. Rarely have we seen a trailer where its main star seems to be saying, "I'm not quite sure what I'm doing here..." That sensation is even more palpable when he's paired on screen with people who are good actors. (Seriously, those scenes with Weaver are brutal.) But we definitely noticed how long this spot lingers on a make-out scene with Collins: We get a sense this particular thriller is selling something other than Lautner's acting abilities. That is probably wise.
