WATCH: Striking New Trailer for Kidnapping Procedural 'Prisoners,' Starring Jackman and Gyllenhaal

A new trailer for Denis Villeneuve's "Prisoners" has arrived, and it looks to be a taut, engaging kidnapping procedural featuring stand-out performances from leads Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. A small-town carpenter (Jackman) endures the unthinkable when his young daughter goes missing, and takes the law into his own hands, putting him at odds with the detective on the case (Gyllenhaal).

Oscar Dark Horse: Jake Gyllenhaal Talks Must-See 'End of Watch'

Of all the dark horse Oscar hopefuls this year, none deserves more consideration than Jake Gyllenhaal for his role as an LA cop in David Ayer's "End of Watch." It's such a competitive year for leading actors that I hope this performance in an admittedly small but well-reviewed indie film will be seen. Critics groups may give it some attention.

'Prisoners' Sounds Familiar: Dano Joins Jackman, Gyllenhaal, Leo

Imitation is the usual form of Hollywood flattery. You can count on a movie like "Taken" to not only spawn a sequel (which opened well enough to reinforce Liam Neeson's misguided belief that chasing big paydays is the best career path) but a slew of imitators.

In the Works: Eisenberg's Magician Heist Pic, Liman Meets Cooper for Luna, McCarthy's Home Movies

The Social Networks's Jesse Eisenberg will do magic for Summit Entertainment's Now You See Me, to be directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans). Jake Gyllenhaal is being eyed to play the second lead and Melanie Laurent has been offered a role. The fun goes like this: A group of the world's top illusionists perform a series of bank heists during their performances and share the riches with their audiences. Of course, when the FBI gets word, the movie turns into a thriller. Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt wrote the script. Variety reports that Summit considered Colin Firth, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jim Carrey and Hugh Grant before settling on these younger men. While an Eisenberg/Gyllenhaal duo is appealing, a Firth/Cohen pairing is even sexier.
