Prisoners Releases a Clip and TV Spot

Every bit of marketing for this dramatic thriller gets us more excited. Prisoners looks like a cracking thriller that benefits from a damn good cast. It’s great to see Hugh Jackman play a more down to earth character, he’s still gritty as hell here though – can’t lose those Wolverine tendencies completely. It’s going to be great to see him bounce off Jake Gyllenhaal too, another actor that delivers almost every time.

When Keller Dover’s daughter and her friend go missing, he takes matters into his own hands as the police pursue multiple leads and the pressure mounts. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?

Check out a clip from the film and new TV spot. Scroll past the videos to read the official synopsis and to check out the film’s poster.
