Hugh Jackman’s ‘Prisoners’ Gets New Trailer

Abduction drama due out Sept. 20

Warner Bros. is stressing dramatic intensity with its second trailer for Alcon Entertainment’s “Prisoners,” an abduction thriller starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and Melissa Leo.

Prisoners,” directed by Denis Villeneuve from Aaron Guzikowski’s Black List script, centers around a carpenter — portrayed by Jackman —  whose young daughter is kidnapped along with her best friend.

The studio’s marketing pitch: “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?”

Billed as a “parent’s worst nightmare,” early “Prisoners” footage received positive exhibitor response in April at CinemaCon. Studio has set a Sept. 20 release date, which could portend a premiere at the Toronto International film Festival.
