Boasting an all-star cast led by Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, Prisoners is less than four months away from hitting theatres, and has long been on our radar as one of the most promising crime-thrillers of the year.
Warner Bros. have done a good job of keeping the lid on the film so far. And with just under four months left to go, they’ve released the first teaser trailer and poster over on Apple.
Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His 6-year-old daughter and her young friend are missing, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release. Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in doing so, may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
Jackman and Gyllenhaal are joined by a terrific ensemble, led by Viola Davis, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, and Paul Dano.
The BAFTA-nominated Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) is behind the camera, directing from a script by Aaron Guizikowski (Contraband). And with Villeneuve also working with Gyllenhaal on the equally anticipated An Enemy, we’ve got a lot to look forward to in the months to come.
Prisoners will be released in the US on September 20th, before heading across the Atlantic for a 4th October UK release date.
