Incendies) took over as director. But the film is finally ready to hit theaters this fall, and after the long wait we have the first trailer.
Jackman plays Kelly Dover, a working-class father who experiences any parent's worst nightmare when his six-year-old daughter is kidnapped along with her friend. Gyllenhaal is the detective assigned to the case, but when he proves ineffective, Jackman strikes out on his own for a little vigilante justice. The film has the gritty Boston look of a Gone Baby Gone or Mystic River, and the performances look strong. If there's a concern it's that the trailer does seem to give away a lot of the plot.
Also starring Terrence Howard, Maria Bello, Viola Davis, Paul Dano, and Melissa Leo, Prisoners opens on September 20th.
