Earlier this morning our own Chris Bumbray shared his review of the Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal-starring PRISONERS with us (check it out HERE) and the film emotionally wrecked him. I thought the revenge thriller looked quite grim from the solid trailer we shared with you in late May, but apparently it packs much more of a wallop than I expected. This one has just jumped to the top of my 'must see' list.
Below you will find the latest UK quad for PRISONERS, which stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo and Paul Dano. Here's the plot synopsis:
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. You can click on the quad below to see a bigger version.
