New Abduction trailer reveals mole?

AbductionPoster.jpgThere's a new trailer on the go for Abduction, the film starring Taylor Lautner as a new, teen friendly Bourne character. This one reveals some of the other stars in the film and also might just reveal a little too much by giving away what might be an early twist.

Still, it does show some of the other stars in the film Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, Lily Collins and Michael Nyqvist, and it shows us that the film is going to be filled with action, even if the plot seems rather well trodden.

The story for Abduction is that a young man realises that the family he's grown up with aren't his own after finding his baby photo on a missing person's website. As soon as he makes the discovery his life, and that of his family's, unravels before his eyes and he begins to find out the truth behind everything.

There's a lot more to the story, but just by watching the trailers you get a strong idea of what's coming. The problem with this trailer is that it might just give away a little too much of what could be a surprise in the first half of the film.

Feel free to take a gander at the Abduction trailer, and afterwards I'll talk about that moment so from here on in, there be potential spoilers.

Early in the trailer we see tells Taylor Lautner's character sitting with Alfred Molina's with him asking who killed my parents, and the both of them getting shot at.

During the trailer Sigourney Weaver's character tells Lautner's that there are four people who know his identity and two of them are dead, so there's a leak, follow that with a view of Molina's character.

Then we see Molina's character clearly as the guy who is chasing Lautner's down, so he's quite clearly the mole.

It seems in the space of the trailer Molina's character has been turned around. It may be the case that we see from the beginning of the film that he's the bad guy, but the early scene does suggest that we have no idea of that. Unless you've watched the trailer.

I do hate how trailers do this sometimes and you become scared to watch them because they might just be giving away something they shouldn't. Even if I'm wrong I feel I've seen too much already.

Regardless of all this, it is just a teenage Bourne isn't it? There are so many beats to it that are just the same. That said there's a great cast in there and John Singleton has directed it, so there are many positives. Perhaps it's only the trailer that has me thinking this?

Are we hitting new franchise territory for Lautner?
