Neither of them features much in the film's trailer (there's a short glimpse at Viola Davis' character & I don't recall seeing any of Nonso Anozie's character), but here's a better (albeit static) look at both actors in costume, in character, as Maj. Gwen Anderson and Sergeant Dap, in the upcoming sci-fi adventure Ender's Game, based on the popular book by Orson Scott Card.

Review - 'Prisoners' Is A Distinctly, Deliciously Stressful Psychological Thriller (Opens Today)

There's much to meditate on in Prisoners, the dark psychological thriller out this Friday starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie could be described as distinctly, deliciously stressful, with its winding mysteries and shocking reveals, its broody atmosphere and consistent aura of foreboding. It excels at all this in spite of a simple enough premise: two families, celebrating together what should be a routine and happy Thanksgiving holiday, are plunged into a waking nightmare when their young daughters are kidnapped in broad daylight. Jackman plays Keller Dover, the father of one of the kidnapped girls who in a desperate bid to find his daughter, and despite the protestations of an idiosyncratic detective working on the case (Gyllenhaal) takes matters in dealing with the prime suspect into his own hands, vigilante style. While the movie's labyrinthine plot is a huge component in what makes it works, its a film that's as much about its performances as it is about the mystery itself. We have a star-studded cast who all (except for Paul Dano, whose performance here and in the forthcoming 12 Years a Slave proves that his time will surely come) have been nominated for or have won Oscars. And while Dano, Melissa Leo, Maria Bello (as Jackman's wife), and Gyllenhaal are all stellar, by the third act it is clear that what we are watching is the Jackman show - Jackman with his flared nostrils and countless crying sequences (ranging from the single tear rolling down the cheek to the full on snot fest).
