Are you ready to stare into the face of every parent’s nightmare? Then watch the new trailer (via Apple) for Prisoners, a kidnapping drama from Incendies director Denis Villeneuve starring Hugh Jackman as a dad searching for his missing daughter and her friend. You won’t believe what happens next.
The cast for Prisoners is top notch. In addition to Jackman, the movie casts Jake Gyllenhaal as an investigator brought in to find the missing girls who keeps butting heads with Jackman’s impatient father. And the naturally disturbing Paul Dano fits the bill as the mysterious degenerate driving an RV who was last seen with the girls but won’t talk about where they might be. The cast rounds out with Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo and the always welcome Viola Davis.
Is this the next Gone Baby Gone? It could be. The clip has a lot of pent-up frustration to it, and that cast can be counted on to deliver. But the one-sheet, included with the trailer, doesn’t give us much. We should see more – and better – as we get closer to the film’s September 20th release date. For now, it’s good to see Jackman sinking his teeth into a non-costumed, human role. Here are the poster and official synopsis for Prisoners. Do these materials get you excited about possibly checking it out?
