Running two and a half hours, soaked in rain and snow, and centering on the disappearance of two young girls that rocks the families involved to the core and finds them pushing their own ethical and emotional borders, there isn't much to smile about in Denis Villeneuve's "Prisoners." But it's also one of the best movies you'll see this fall, and with the film gearing up to open next week, Warner Bros. is eager to keep the buzz from Telluride and Toronto going.

Five brand new clips from the film have dropped online, focusing on the investigation led by Detective Loki (a very, very good Jake Gyllenhaal) that starts with the most obvious suspect, a mentally disabled young man (Paul Dano) and goes into some very dark, harrowing directions. These scenes provide a good indication of the tone of the film, as well as the absolutely fantastic lensing by Roger Deakins in an effort that we said leaves "a memorable sear that won't soon be forgotten."

"Prisoners" investigates your multiplex on September 20th. Check out the clips below, but be warned, the last clip is fairly spoiler heavy.
