Taylor Lautner Stars In New Trailer For Action Thriller Tracers

18 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Lionsgate has released the new trailer for the upcoming thriller, Tracers, starring Taylor Lautner (The Twilight Saga, Abduction) and Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100, 50/50).

After he crashes his bike into a super-sexy stranger named Nikki (Avgeropoulos), Cam (Lautner) is introduced to her crew — a team that uses parkour to pull off heists. Hoping to alleviate his deepening debt to a violent crime gang, Cam quickly joins the group. As the stakes get higher with more dangerous side ventures, the payouts get bigger. Cam must use every ounce of his skill to stay alive as the crew’s heists grow more daring with each job, and gang enforcers breathe relentlessly down his neck.

Tracers is directed by Daniel Benmayor (Paintball).

The film will be available exclusively on Directv January 22, 2015- and in theaters and On Demand March 20, 2015.

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 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.

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 movie review: barely there

27 November 2014 7:33 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The 90-minute expansion of an Oscar-winning short chooses art over heart, and lacks the emotional conviction of its progenitor. I’m “biast” (pro): enjoyed the short film this is based on

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have seen the source material (and I like it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

A few years ago, writer-director Shawn Christensen won the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short for his film “Curfew,” about a depressed young man (played by the filmmaker) whose suicide attempt is interrupted by a phone call from his estranged sister asking him to do some emergency babysitting of her nine-year-old daughter. The 19-minute short was blackly charming and deeply unsentimental in how it went about its tale of redemption and reconciliation. For this 90-minute expansion of the story, Christensen, alas, chose hallucinatory style over emotional conviction, and the result is far less satisfying; sometimes briefer is better. »

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. »

New Poster & Photos Of 'Camp X-Ray' Starring Kristen Stewart

4 September 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Okay, Taylor Lautner, it’s your move. The primary “Twilight” duo of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have used their Ya-vampire cache as a stepping stone to work with extremely interesting filmmakers: Walter Salles, Olivier Assayas, David Cronenberg, David Michod and many, many more. Lautner has fallen behind in that regard, but it’s possible he might have been legitimately interested in “Abduction” and “Grown Ups 2” (and/or, he just hasn’t found the right roles yet). That’s neither here nor there, but it does remind us that Kristen Stewart has another intriguing looking project coming up. Titled “Camp X-Ray,” the movie is an indie that premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and features the actress as in an unlikely, but challenging role of a Guantanamo Bay detention camp guard. Written and directed by first-time feature helmer Peter Sattler, the movie co-stars Tara Holt, John Carroll Lynch, Lane Garrison, »

Jamie Foxx was in talks to play Luke Cage

21 August 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The television branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already underway with Daredevil starring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock. Joining the fray sometime soon will also be Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. In an exclusive interview with IGN, Jamie Foxx – who recently starred as super fan-turned-super villain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – admits that he was once in talks to play Luke Cage.

“I was actually approached for Luke Cage, back in the day, but you know… it didn’t work out,” states Foxx.

Foxx is of course referring to the long abandoned Colombia Pictures version of Cage that was due to be directed by John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Abduction) The deal fell through when all parties couldn’t agree which direction to take the character. Back in 2007 Singleton said:

“We have a great script. We have a couple of great scripts. It’s just »

Cuckoo: why swapping one star for another doesn't always work

21 August 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC3 sitcom replaced Andy Samberg with Taylor Lautner, but as Two and a Half Men and Midsomer Murders have proven, TV shows rarely survive a serious personnel change

If youve been watching BBC3s Cuckoo, youll have noticed that series two isnt quite as good as series one. This is mainly down to personnel change. When it first arrived on our screens in 2012, Cuckoo was a showcase for Andy Samberg, the dazzling breakout Saturday Night Live star who was responsible for all those Lonely Island videos and the Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals sketch. Samberg was a star on the rise when he made Cuckoo, a fact demonstrated by the Golden Globe he won earlier this year.

Now, however, Samberg has been replaced by Taylor Lautner. To put it as politely as possible, Lautner has a vastly different skillset to Samberg. Sure, he has also won awards, but those »

The State Within TV review: unknown knowns

9 July 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A riveting BBC political thriller offering one of the most trenchant explorations yet of the sick symbiosis between big government and big business. I’m “biast” (pro): love Jason Isaacs and Ben Daniels

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I wasn’t planning on writing anything about this. I only came across it on Netflix (it’s available in the U.S. and the U.K., but not Canada) because I’m crushing on Ben Daniels (just inducted into the Boyfriend Hall of Fame) and there were no Law & Order: UK reruns on at that moment and I needed a fix. And this had Jason Isaacs in it, too! Double yum.

But oh my god, now that I’ve finished all seven episodes — it’s a limited miniseries, so that’s all there will ever be — I feel like I »
