4 Clips From Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners With Some Intense Performances From Hugh Jackman & Jake Gyllenhaal



Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this new collection of clips from Denis Villeneuve’s  dramatic thriller, Prisoners.  The Canadian filmmaker is making a splash (or splashes) at this year’s film festivals with both the critically acclaimed Prisoners and Enemy.   This new thriller is one I’m looking forward to.  The cast is led by Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, who can be seen turning up the heat on potential suspects in a child abduction case.  Prisoners also stars Maria Bello as Jackman’s wife, Grace; Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Viola Davis as Franklin and Nancy Birch. Academy Award winner Melissa Leo as Alex Jones’ Aunt Holly; and Paul Dano as Alex Jones.

Prisoners is set for a September 20th release.


From Alcon Entertainment comes “Prisoners,” a Warner Bros. Pictures’ release starring Oscar® nominees Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) and Jake Gyllenhaal (“Brokeback Mountain”), under the direction of Denis Villeneuve, who helmed the Oscar®-nominated foreign language film “Incendies.”

How far would you go to protect your family? Keller Dover (Hugh 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 (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces his release.

As the police pursue multiple leads and pressure mounts, knowing his child’s life is at stake the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?

Led by Jackman and Gyllenhaal, the dramatic thriller “Prisoners” features an all-star cast, including Maria Bello (“Beautiful Boy”) as Keller’s distraught wife, Grace; Oscar® nominees Terrence Howard (“Hustle & Flow”) and Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”) as Franklin and Nancy Birch, whose daughter Joy went missing with the Dovers’; Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) as Alex Jones’ Aunt Holly; and Paul Dano (“Looper”) as Alex Jones.
