The story of Prisoners revolves around a small-town carpenter (Hugh Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are abducted. After the cops fail to find them, Jackman’s character takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against a detective (Jake Gyllenhaal), a hot-shot cop with confidence to burn, assigned to the case. Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Viola Davis, Maria Bello and Paul Dano also star. Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) directs from a script by Contraband scribe Aaron Guzikowski. It’s set for a September 20 release. Check out the trailer:
