Sudden Death Sequel (Taylor Lautner Is Jean-Claude Van Damme)

The movie Abduction, starring Taylor Lautner of Twilight fame, is scheduled for release this fall. According to IMDB, the film is "a thriller centered on a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website." What the description doesn't mention is that, at least according to the trailer, this film appears to have the greatest action sequence involving a Pittsburgh stadium/arena since the 1995 film Sudden Death starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. Have you seen the trailer for this movie? If not, start at around the 1:25 mark, but pay particular attention to the last 30 seconds or so.

Lautner wearing a Roberto Clemente shirt jumping and flying all around PNC Park looks extremely cool. I have no idea if this movie will be any good, but I'm certainly intrigued about the film based on the PNC Park scenes alone.

Of course, any movie that features cool pictures of Pittsburgh virtually guarantees a positive review in my book. For example, She's Out of My League could be one of the top 10 movies of all time. (I might be exaggerating just a bit, but the shots of the city from Mount Washington look fantastic.)
