Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal are teaming up in a disturbing new thriller called “Prisoners.” The flick follows two families whose young daughters are abducted, and the detective who gets assigned to find them. But the lines between who is the victim and who is the villain become blurred when Jackman’s character decides to take matters into his own hands. Here’s the plot synopsis:
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?
“Prisoners” is due in theaters on Sept. 20. Directed by “Incendies'” Denis Villenueve, the flick also stars Maria Bello, Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo, Wayne Duvall and Paul Dano. Check out the movie’s first trailer below.
