It’s been a long, strange trip for Kidnap, the thriller starring Halle Berry as a mom who won’t sit idly by after her son is abducted. It was among the films caught in the Relativity kerfuffle, and its release date has been less carved in stone than in wet sand on a shoreline. But here it is: The official first trailer. Take a look above.
From the first terrifying moments on not being able to locate her child (Sage Correa) to catching sight of him being hurried into a stranger’s car, this is the stuff of every parent’s nightmare. She gives chase, but the creep eludes her in particularly heinous fashion. Rushing into a police station, she is told to sit tight while they file a report. But this is one mom who isn’t playing the waiting game.
A chase ensues. And ensues. And Mom has a few choice words for the child stealer: “You took the wrong kid.”
Luis Prieto directed the action-thriller from a script by Knate Gwaltney. Relativity still doesn’t have a hard date Kidnap’s theatrical release — only that it’s coming in the winter. Meanwhile, have a look at this first look and tell us what you think.
