Watch Taylor Lautner Do Parkour in Tracers Trailer

20 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Remember that time when Hollywood thought Twilight star Taylor Lautner was going to be the next big movie star? That didn’t quite work out for anyone, did it? But he’s back in an upcoming movie called Tracers, which doesn’t look very promising. It’s described as a parkour action thriller, and this is the synopsis:

Tracers follows a New York City bicycle messenger, Cam (Lautner) who is the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organized crime gang. When he crashes his bike into a sexy stranger, Nikki (Avgeropoulos), Cam is immediately seduced by her and the thrill of the high-stakes world of parkour.”

Even though I enjoy parkour, Lautner just kills the whole thing for me, and it's hard to take seriously. The film was directed by Daniel Benmayor (The Manhunt) and had an army of screenwriters that included Leslie Bohem, Matt Johnson, »

Taylor Swift boyfriend rumors - Love life on hold?

16 December 2014 6:14 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Taylor Swift boyfriend rumors - the pop singer's love life is on hold and now it appears Taylor is only interested in love ''as a writer''. The 25-year-old beauty - who has previously dated the likes of Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner and has recently been romantically linked with The 1975 star Matt Healy - is very ''protective'' of her current happiness as a single woman and admits her creative inspirations have changed as a result. She said: ''It seems like when I moved to New York love and heartbreak and the themes that used to be main factors in my music kind of faded to the background. ''Of course, love is still very interesting to me as a writer. Asked whether she was interested in love as a beautiful young woman, she added: ''Not right now. I'm just really happy and I'm really protective of that.'' The »

Watch: New Thai Trailer for 'Tracers' Starring Taylor Lautner

12 December 2014 8:44 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When I was looking at the list of article ideas Brad compiles for us to choose from to write about, I originally glossed this one over. I'd never heard of Tracers, and he listed Taylor Kitsch as the one starring in it, and that did nothing for me. But I figured why not give it a click and see what it isc So, I did. First thing I noticed was Taylor Kitsch was nowhere to be found, instead it was Twilight's Taylor Lautner that was the star of the movie. Some may see Brad's mistake as just a misprint, which it pretty much is, but I thought it represented something a little more. The differences between Taylor Kitsch and Taylor Lautner are minimal, their physicality aside. They are both bland actors being forced on us to like. They also make me think "Who really caresc" I certainly do not. Is »

Taylor Lautner is up for bike riding and parkour in the trailer for Tracers

12 December 2014 7:46 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Remember that awesome bike messenger/crime movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt called Premium Rush? It also had Michael Shannon in it and followed the best bike messenger in New York as he evaded the cops and criminals using his skills on two wheels? Yeah, that is because it sucked. The concept of a movie about bike messengers should be completely ignored as it is not a subject worth exploring on the big screen. Now, if you throw in parkour, maybe I will watch it.

Taylor Lautner Flips a Lot in Parkour Action Thriller Trailer 'Tracers'

12 December 2014 7:42 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you thought we'd seen the last of mannequin actor Taylor Lautner, think again. The star of The Twilight Saga is back, and he's still trying really hard to be a real boy with his latest role in the action thriller Traces. This time, Lautner uses his physical prowess to partake in parkour, making him a reliable bike messenger in New York City. After meeting a young woman named Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos), learns that he can make some serious cash if he uses his developing parkour skills to help a group of street criminals pull off some heists. It looks about as generic as you'd expect, and sadly, not even the action looks all that fun. It would be better if this were about Brodie Bruce and a team of fellow comic book inkers battling injustice. Here's the first international trailer for Daniel Benmayor's Tracers from Mongkol Major: »

Taylor Lautner Becomes a Parkour Master In This Tracers Trailer and Poster

12 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I don't think I'm quite the intended audience for this Tracers trailer.  In a way, it pleasantly remains me of some of those action capers from the 80's that would latch onto emerging sports or fads in search of an identity.  But I'm just probably too old to really invest in Taylor Lautner jumping on and off things for 90 minutes as he battles with the ethical issues inherent in being one of the world's more athletic thieves.  But that doesn't mean you shouldn't watch the trailer!  Chances are you'll be entertained whether or not you end up with a desire to see the movie. Hit the jump for the Tracers trailer and poster.  The film was directed by Daniel Benmayor (The Manhunt) and written by Leslie Bohem, Matt Johnson, Kevin Lund and T.J. Scott.  Marie Avgeropoulos, Rafi Gavron and Adam Rayner also star.  The film currently does not have a U. »

Taylor Lautner Falls For Parkour In Trailer For Tracers

12 December 2014 7:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Taylor Lautner’s Twilight co-stars have proven, success is possible after the box office-breaking conclusion of the supernatural teen trilogy. Whereas Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have each found new career avenues, both landing stellar reviews for their work outside of the franchise, Lautner is still searching for his. After his attempt at acquiring action star status in the 2012 dud Abduction, he’s now literally landed on his feet in the upcoming thriller, Tracers.

Tracers follows the story of Lautner’s bike messenger Cam. A talented lad on two wheels, he’s entangled in a shady deal with a crime gang. His luck changes when he smashes his bike into a delectable stranger, Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos) and begins to pursue her – and her hobby. Her favourite pasttime is the urban activity of parkour, which leads to Cam’s entry into her gang of runners. However, their athleticism serves a »

Watch: First Trailer For Parkour Thriller ‘Tracers’ Starring Taylor Lautner

12 December 2014 5:16 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Twilight” star Robert Pattinson has totally reinvented his career by working with auteurs, and Kristen Stewart is on her way by following a similar path, but what about Taylor Lautner? Maybe “Tracers” is his shot? He previously tried to go the action leading-man route with "Abduction," and the results were fairly dismal. Regardless, this pulse-pounding thriller is about a New York City bike messenger (Lautner) who is seduced by the world of parkour, and this first trailer kinda makes it look like a cross between “Premium Rush” and “Brick Mansions." Perhaps what the film has going for it is that it’s backed by Film Nation, the production company that has worked with Steven Soderbergh, Terrence Malick (his two upcoming pictures), Pedro Almodóvar, Jeff Nichols, Sofia Coppola, J.C. Chandor and Anton Corbijn to name a few. So, they generally latch on to projects with some substance, though this logline is »

Before I Disappear | Review

24 November 2014 12:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Sting Called Love: Christensen’s Debut Rife with Melodramatic Cliché

Shawn Christensen, who won an Academy Award for his 2013 short film, Curfew, expands his award winning triumph to feature length with Before I Disappear. Something gets a little lost in the translation, however, in this tale about a vagabond hipster loser who actually inspires less empathy the more time we experience his dilemma on screen. It takes the right blend of melancholy personality to strike the correct balance of the loveable, love-struck loser (i.e., Joaquin Phoenix in Her) and Christensen, who casts himself in the lead, doesn’t feel quite right, though character and narrative development are partially to blame for the ambivalence as well. It’s a tale that requires a strong, emotional component to be successful, and its glaring absence only becomes more and more apparent as it shuttles us off into the vacuum of the hopeful ending. »
