Relativity Media has unveiled the first trailer for Kidnap, the upcoming thriller starring Halle Berry.
Directed by Luis Prieto, known for the 2012 remake of Pusher and for episodes of Z Nation, Kidnap sees Berry playing a mother who is determined to stop at nothing until she recovers her abducted son.
It certainly looks like a run-of-the-mill thriller, but that’s not too say there won’t be some fun on offer. Hopefully. Berry looks to be convincing as a mother whose desperation is (literally) driving her toward an insane showdown, and the pacing looks energetic enough to take you on a bit of a harmless ride. And I’d be lying if Berry’s oh-so cheezy “you took the wrong kid” line didn’t put a bit of a stupid smile on this writer’s face.
Kidnap will hit U.S. cinemas on December 2.
