Prisoners
Set to unspool before TIFF crowds in just a few short weeks, Denis Villeneuve's thriller "Prisoners" looks to have more than just your average potboiler antics up its sleeve, bolstered in turn by lead performances from Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Warner Bros. is prepping the film for a solid fall run as well, and so they've released a new TV spot, while also getting the early word out on their sequel to Zack Snyder's "300."

With summer winding down (the last major blockbuster, "Elysium," opened today, with the rest of August rolling out weaker and weaker commercial fare), eyes are now turning to the fall offerings. And while there's plenty of prestige-y fare on the way, there's more than a few films that, while they might have an eye on the trophy cabinet, are paying just as much attention to your wallet.

Hugh Jackman, Prisoners
It was mooted as one of Hollywood script's circa 2009 in fact it landed at the top of the BlackList pile that year. Names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Bryan Singer, Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale were thrown around in several different versions, but for whatever reason the film never quite came together. However, one actor stayed the course. Hugh Jackman was set to play the lead in 2010 and cut to a few years later, the actor was game and ready to play the role in the newest iteration.

While David O. Russell's upcoming movie with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams is in the early lead for cast of the year for 2013, "Prisoners" ain't looking too shabby either. With Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Melissa Leo already on board, the long brewing movie has added another very talented name to the ensemble.
