Warner Bros. has released a new poster for Prisoners today, which you can check out below. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, who caught Hollywood’s attention in 2010 with the Oscar-nominated Incendies, the film has a star studded line-up, boasting names like Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllehaal, Viola David, Melissa Leo and more.
With the film’s release date quickly approaching, Warner Bros. has been pushing out the marketing material. It was only a few weeks ago that we saw a new trailer, which looked fantastic, and now we have this poster. Though it doesn’t reveal too much, it shows off the two lead actors along with the gripping tagline “every moment matters.”
The revenge flick follows Hugh Jackman’s Keller Dover, “a father whose worst fear is realized when his six year old daughter and her friend suddenly go missing. The only lead is a rundown RV. When Jake Gyllenhaal’s Detective Loki arrests the driver, played by Paul Dano, a lack of evidence forces Loki to release him. Now, frantic and in fear for his daughter’s life, Dover takes matters into his own hands.”
Sounds like a gripping tale and one that will no doubt be phenomenally acted. From what we’ve seen so far, I think we may have an Oscar contender on our hands and I cannot wait to check this one out when it arrives in September.
Prisoners will premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, which runs September 5th – September 15th. It will hit theatres on September 20th, 2013. Check out the poster and plot summary below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
How far would you go to protect your child? 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?
