How cool is it that Jake Gyllenhaal’s Detective character in Denis Villeneuve’s heavy drama “Prisoners” is named Loki? I mean, you don’t find a lot of people name Loki outside of a Marvel comic book (or the Marvel Cinematic Universe). This new trailer for the film definitely gives the awesomely named Loki more to do, with a lot less emphasis on Jackman’s dad character locking up the suspect in his kid’s kidnapping. I thought that was the main thrust of the story, but maybe not?
And oh yeah, check out two new posters for the film featuring Jackman and Gyllenhaal.
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?
Starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo, and Paul Dano.
