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.S. release date but opens in several European markets this spring.
Here’s the synopsis for Tracers:
“Tracers” is an action thriller that follows 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.
