If you're willing to wait three months for Taylor Lautner's new film, you could see it even cheaper than at many theaters.

Lionsgate just announced it will release 'Abduction' on video-on-demand just three months after its theatrical release, and for a mere $6.99. That's a whole lot cheaper than the whopping $30 that some studios have been charging for VOD titles on DirecTV.

Theater owners have protested the recent trend of having movies appear on VOD so soon after they debut on the big screen, saying it eats into their box office receipts.

Lionsgate will release the film to all VOD providers and via Wal-Mart and Best Buy online. If you want the movie in high definition, the price is a still fairly reasonable $7.99, still cheaper than the current average movie ticket price of $7.97. (As determined by Box Office Mojo.)

'Abduction,' in which Lautner stars as a teen whose realization that he was abducted as a child makes him the center of a deadly manhunt, opens in theaters on September 23.

Would you rather see Taylor on the big screen or can you wait three months for VOD?
