Review: Prisoners (TIFF 2013)

PLOT: A rural New England community is shaken to the core by the abduction of two six-year-old girls. When the key suspect in the abduction is let go by the police due to a lack of evidence, the father of one of the girls, Keller Dover ( Hugh Jackman ) takes the law into his own hands. REVIEW: If all you know about Denis Villeneuve 's PRISONERS is based on the...

The JoBlo.com 2013 Fall Preview

With Labor Day weekend having come and gone, the summer of 2013 is officially in the books. We now begin the fall movie season. For my money, this is the best movie-going season of them all, as it's during the fourth quarter (which technically kicks off in October) that all the studios release their “prestige” movies, and Oscar contenders. This week, I'll be heading off to the Toronto...

New clip from the thriller Prisoners featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano

A new clip from MTV for PRISONERS has been released, and while it doesn't reveal too much about the plot or characters, it does showcase some awesome cinematography. In the clip, Jake Gyllenhaal confronts his suspect ( Paul Dano ) and demands to know where Hugh Jackman 's missing girls are. It's very dark and rainy in the clip, and I like how the flashlights cut...

New "countdown" 60-second TV spot for Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal

The latest TV spot for PRISONERS shows a fair share of material we've already seen as well as a little that we haven't. The film directed by Denis Villeneuve certainly shows some promise, and what looks to be a powerful performance from Hugh Jackman . My only question is what's going on with Dano's character. I see that Jackman suspects him even after he's let go but I wonder...

Jake Gyllenhaal needs to do his job before Hugh Jackman does it for him in the trailer for Prisoners

Everyone was rather intrigued by the first trailer for PRISONERS starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal . I think we got the general idea of what to expect from the movie, but just in case we have a second trailer to help us paint more of the picture. It's very similar to what we already saw, however there is new footage here. It's a little more heavy on Gyllenhaal's...

Awfully Good: The Day After Tomorrow

In between aliens and terrorists taking the WHITE HOUSE DOWN, Roland Emmerich made a scientific documentary you may have heard of… The Day After Tomorrow (2004) Director: Roland Emmerich Stars: Dennis Quaid , Jake Gyllenhaal , Killer Ice Global Warming is coming to kill you! There's a fine line between stupid-fun and...

The first trailer for Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal is rather intense

I feel like I've heard zero about PRISONERS starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal , which turns out to be a good thing since this trailer makes the flick look sort of kick ass. When it first starts, you think it could go one of two ways until the two little girls take off on their own. So as parents, Hugh Jackman , Maria Bello , Terrence Howard , and Viola Davis seek...

Face-Off: 2012 vs. Day After Tomorrow

We paid tribute to a true comedy gem in last weeks Face-Off , in a match between Jim Carrey's Lloyd Christmas against Jeff Daniels' Harry Dunn courtesy of Dumb & Dumber. Although Lloyd took the final verdict both with the column and reader votes, I was pleased to see some said votes swung towards having affection for Harry Dunn as well. This week, we are going to switch it up a bit....

Casting roundup: Maria Bello joins Prisoners, Kit Harington takes on Pompeii, and Chris Hemsworth for spy thriller Candy Store

First off we have PRISONERS, a spin on the TAKEN formula that relegates the action to a small American town and transforms the lead from a man with special skills to a carpenter desperate for answers.  I expect that hacksaw will be put to some good use in the course of the film.  Already set to star Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano, and Viola Davis, the...

Cool Videos: See The Joker and Donnie Darko in Jokeback Mountain

Well, this may not be cool per se, but most definitely odd.  I'll leave it up to you to decide.  This is a shot-for-shot "remake" of the pivotal "I wish I knew how to quit you" scene in Ang Lee's BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, only recast as Heath Ledger's Joker and Jake Gyllenhaal's DONNIE DARKO.  It's a very strange, almost uncomfortable sequence, but does show some creative fun.  I would challenge...

Casting double feature: the English-language cast for Studio Ghibli's next and Paul Dano joins revenge flick Prisoners

As is often the way with these sorts of things, the two movies at hand could not be more different from one another.  Which s good, because variety is the spice of filmmaking life.  Or clove and cinnamon, if we're talking the spices that infuse the warm apple cider you drink while watching movies or between takes when making movies.  First up is the English-language cast...

Casting double feature: Jake Gyllenhaal joining Hugh Jackman in revenge flick Prisoners and Anne Hathaway circling Robopocalypse

I have two pieces of casting news for you today concerning two very different sorts of movies. On one end of the spectrum there's the sure-to-be-rough revenge flick PRISONERS that stars Hugh Jackman as "a small-town carpenter whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, his character takes the law into his own hands, kidnapping the man he...
