Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman star in a new Prisoners trailer

Jake Gyllenhaal in Prisoners

The new trailer for the Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman thriller PRISONERS is out and although it does offer some new footage and more plot details, I have to say I don’t like it as much as the first trailer.  Without that last scene of the little girl peering through the wall, this looks like a run of the mill revenge thriller.  Granted, it looks like a well done thriller, but one we’ve seen none the less.  But I’m interested to see what this turns out to be.  PRISONERS stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Terrence Howard, Maria Bello, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo, Wayne Duvall and Paul Dano.  The Denis Villeneuve directed film hits theaters on September 20th.

PRISONERS official synopsis: Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), 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, he may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
