Back in May we got a good look at the Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal-starring PRISONERS via an intense and very solid trailer that certainly intrigued a lot of you, myself included. Last week I was completely sold on checking out the film when our very own Chris Bumbray went apeshit over it in his very enthusiastic review (check it out HERE). Now we have five intense clips from the film for you to check out below to further solidify that this will most certainly be one of the very best films of 2013.
How far would you go to protect your child? Keller Dover (Jackman) is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), 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, he may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
Denis Villeneuve directs the film from an original screenplay by Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband). Kira Davis, Adam Kolbrenner, and Academy Award nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove (The Blind Side) are the producers, with John Starke, Ed McDonnell, Stephen Levinson, Robyn Meisinger and Mark Wahlberg serving as executive producers.
PRISONERS hits theaters on September 20, 2013.
