Now that we are well into summer blockbuster season, trailers for the fall are presenting themselves. The movie Prisoners comes out September 20, signaling the beginning of small dramas that will segue moviegoers into the holiday season. This drama has a story that has been told before (two girls go missing, parents go on the hunt for them) and an unknown director (Denis Villeneuve). But the draw for me is the cast. Hugh Jackman, Maria Bello, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, and Jake Gyllenhaal play the two sets of parents and the detective trying to help find their girls. 4 of the 5 of them have been nominated for Oscars. But the character that truly got me excited is the one played by Paul Dano. Paul Dano is an actor that you wouldn’t necessarily know by name but he definitely looks familiar. He has been in a variety of movies and he is excellent in all of them (my two favorites being The Girl Next Door and There Will Be Blood).
Hope you enjoy the trailer:
Have a great week!
