Director Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners is rumoured to be one of the finest thrillers of the year, and with the risky subject matter, probably one of the most hard hitting too. The film boats an almighty cast, and so far all the trailers we have seen indicate that this kidnap thriller will be incredibly intense, edge of your seat stuff.
The latest piece of advertising comes by way of the superbly put together extended TV spot, so check it out below but please, remember to breathe!
Prisoners is written by Aaron Guzikowski and directed by Denis Villeneuve. The impressive cast includes Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Terrence Howard, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo and Dylan Minnette.
Prisoners arrives in UK cinemas October 4th.
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?
