Taylor Lautner’s “Abduction” not screening for review

Taylor Lautner’s abs, however, are probably in fine form. I say “probably” because he remains fully shirted in the trailer for “Abduction,” the action/thriller that represents the “Twilight” werewolf’s first shot at toplining a movie. I don’t know if the shirt’s the problem or what, but I did learn today that “Abduction” will not be screening for review, so my only glimpse of it this week will be the trailer, in which both Maria Bello and Sigourney Weaver appear to be quite badass, and young Lautner seems gloomy and moody throughout, as if he were a werewolf in love with a girl married to a vampire and pregnant with a scary vampire baby. Or something like that.
More surprising in the Movies That Aren’t Screening department is “Dream House,” the thriller opening Sept. 30 starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts. Really? A cast that good, and a director who’s made some wonderful movies (Jim Sheridan, of “In America,” “In the Name of the Father” and “My Left Foot”), and the studio’s hiding the movie from reviewers? What went wrong? Guess I’ll find out, but not until after Sept. 30.
