I love a movie with a great villain. Paul Dano, who you may know from Little Miss Sunshine, Looper, or There Will Be Blood fame, looks like an awesome villain in an intriguing new mystery/thriller entitled, Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gylennhaal, Terrance Howard, and Melissa Leo, which hopes to creep viewers out in theaters this September 20th. The bottom line, at least from what I can glean from the great trailer, is that this is your pretty standard child abduction thriller, except Dano may prove to be the difference maker. Prisoners features a ginormous amount of Academy Award-star power with five nominees, and one winner in Mr. Howard; if Paul Dano can deliver as the villain, then this film may really shine.

What did you think of the trailer? Do you think Dano will excel as the villain? I’d say he is really looking the child abductor part from the trailer, and you know he’s already got the acting skills. This looks like an interesting film; I may not be sold on catching this in the theater, but I will definitely stream it on Netflix or On Demand once it’s available.
