Entertainment Weekly (EW) have previewed two new images for Denis Villeneuve’s chilling new thriller, Prisoners, which forms part of EW’s Fall Movie Preview. Check them out below.

Hugh Jackman  plays the father of one of the kidnapped girls, and his anger and emotions get the better of him, and when the detective in charge (Jake Gyllenhaal) of finding the girls has to let their main suspect go, Jackman’s character can take no more. It all looks frantic, edge of your seat stuff, and people have been talking about this being one of the finest thrillers of the year!

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.

The film 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?
