David Oyelowo & Kate Mara in Trailer for Real-Life Story 'Captive'
"I had to break out…" Paramount has debuted a trailer for the new film Captive, based on the true "Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Hero". Kate Mara plays a struggling single mother who's taken hostage when the "courthouse killer" from Atlanta finds his way into her apartment. David Oyelowo plays Brian Nichols. But the happy side of the story is that Ashley was able to talk her captor into "surrendering peacefully by gaining his confidence through her prayers and personal faith". Oh boy. Aside from that side of this story, this looks interesting. And I'll watch David Oyelowo in anything - he's such an immensely talented actor.
Here's the first official trailer for Jerry Jameson's Captive, in high def from Apple:
In this fact-based thriller, a single mother (Kate Mara) struggling with drug addiction is randomly taken hostage in her own apartment by a man (David Oyelowo) on the run from the law for breaking out of jail and murdering the judge assigned to his case. Captive is directed by American filmmaker Jerry Jameson, of lots & lots of TV work previously plus Last Flight Out and Land of the Free. The screenplay is by Brian Bird, adapted from Ashley Smith's book of the same name telling her own real-life experiences with Brian Nichols. Paramount Pictures will release Captive in theaters starting September 18th this fall. Interested?
