Sneak screenings set for Friday
The dramas — both which are heading to the Toronto Intl. Film Festival next week — will screen Friday evening. Neither was on the lineup of 45 feature films announced on Wednesday but the fest has usually added several films once the festival starts, such as “Argo” last year.
Warner Bros.’ “Prisoners,” which will open Sept. 20, stars Hugh Jackman as an angry father trying to punish the suspected abductor (played by Paul Dano) of his daughter and another girl. Jake Gyllenhaal (pictured above) portrays the police detective.
Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt star in “12 Years,” based on Solomon Northrup’s 1853 nonfiction tome about a free man kidnapped in 1841 and sold into slavery in Louisiana. Fox Searchlight has set an Oct. 18 release for the U.S.
