Hugh Jackman Goes Vigilante in First Prisoners Trailer

Hugh Jackman pops the claws one more time in this summer’s The Wolverine, but it’s his turn in the new drama Prisoners that’s looking to tear your heart out. A new trailer for the September-releasing film has gone online at Apple, and it promises a gut-wrenching tale of a parent turned vigilante, a man who will do anything to rescue his daughter.

The plot of Prisoners is described as follows:

Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His 6-year-old daughter and her young friend are missing, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, 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, may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?

Featuring an all-star cast including Jake Gyllenhaal and Terrence Howard, Prisoners hits theaters Sept. 20.

    Detective Loki? Really? Is that a massive clue that he’s the real kidnapper?
    This film can only go a few ways:
    The freak is innocent = vigilantism is bad, the system is flawed, but good. That means the real killer is likely one of the mothers or Terence Howard, possibly Loki himself. And it’ll come out after the freak is tortured or killed. Obvious indictment on USA’s war on terror.
    The freak is guilty = vigilantism is good, the system is f@cked, wake up USA.
    I guess it all comes down to the manner it’s handled, a subtle manner, or a sledgehammer. Jackman and Gylenhall usually choose good scripts so I think ot’ll be OK, but it looks pretty predictable.

    Gee…I wonder who the real kidnapper is.

    Forget seeing it “from a mile away”…You could see THAT plot twist from SPACE.
