Now that the Cannes Film Festival is in the rearview, we can't help but start speculating about what movies will hit the Venice/Telluride/TIFF circuit in just a few months, and these two are probably pretty fair bets.

First up is "Prisoners," one of two movies on the way Jake Gyllenhaal has made with "Incendies" filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (the other is "An Enemy"). Co-starring Hugh Jackman, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo and Viola Davis, this a long-simmering Black List project penned by Aaron Guzikowski (“Contraband”), and it revolves around a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against the big city detective (Gyllenhaal) assigned to the case. Looks pretty gritty and we'll see the results on September 20th, so trailer soon? The first look comes via Cinema Teaser.

Meanwhile, Luc Besson is back behind the camera and in action/comedy mode with "The Family," based on the Tonino Benacquista novel “Badfellas.” The movie brings together a pretty solid cast including Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones and Dianna Agron in the story of a family who tries to get out, but gets pulled back in. EuropaCorp brought some first images with them to Cannes, which you see below. Here's the official synopsis -- this movie also drops on September 20th.

In the off-beat action comedy “The Family,” a mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of CIA Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert DeNiro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) can't help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings in this darkly funny film by Luc Besson (Taken, Transporter).
