Taylor Lautner of “Twilight” fame was on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show last night and brought along a minute-long action clip from his new movie, “Abduction” that showed the young tyke battling it out with a thug on a train. For some reason he keeps his shirt on, though, which will probably confuse some of the girls out there. Feel free to skip the rest of the interview, as listening to Kimmel interview people is like stabbing yourself in the ears with a screwdriver.
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 – and solve the mystery of his elusive biological father – is to stop running and take matters into his own hands.
Starring Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Denzel Whitaker, Michael Nyqvist, Sigourney Weaver and directed by John Singleton.
