Hugh Jackman’s ‘Prisoners’ Trailer Debuts

Abduction drama due out Sept. 20

Warner Bros. is opting for intensity with a trailer for Alcon Entertainment’s “Prisoners,” an abduction drama starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and Melissa Leo.

“Prisoners,” directed by Denis Villeneuve from Aaron Guzikowski’s Black List script,  revolves around a small-town carpenter whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped.

Billed by Warner Bros. as a “parent’s worst nightmare,” the footage received plenty of positive exhibitor reaction last month at CinemaCon. Studio has set a Sept. 20 release date, which could line up “Prisoners” for a debut at the Toronto International film Festival.
