This new trailer for PRISONERS just ain't right

2 min read


Pro-tip: If you’re going to kidnap somebody, make sure they’re not Hugh Jackman’s daughter. Not only is he an almost immortal mutant with anger management issues and cutlery stuck in his fists, but he once even lifted up a whole wagon by himself just because he was upset about being French. Or something (I really should have paid more attention during Les Miserables). Point is, he’s crazy, yo!

Just check out this new trailer for the star-studded Prisoners if you don’t believe me.

Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His 6-year-old daughter and her young friend are missing, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, 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, may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?

While Prisoners does have a very “been there, done that” feel to it, it still boasts one seriously stellar cast. Also, Jake Gyllenhaal’s character is called Detective Loki, which has to be the coolest cop name since Sylvester Stallone called himself John Spartan in Demolition Man.

Prisoners will be taking audiences for a ride in its RV on September 20, 2013.
