‘Kidnap’ Trailer: Halle Berry Will Not Stop Driving After Her Son’s Kidnapper
Halle Berry is getting her own Taken in Kidnap, which escalates steadily from a child abduction drama into the John Wick of child abduction dramas. When a mother’s kid is stolen, a parent would do anything to get them back. In the newest trailer for Kidnap, Berry does everything.
Honestly, I was very pleased, in a kind of “Ohoho boy” way, at the bit in the trailer proudly announcing this movie was done by the folks who brought us Transformers and Salt, two movies not necessarily known for their quality but definitely for being very fun to watch. I’m not entirely sure if Kidnap will be any good, but I do know that I absolutely can’t wait to see it.
A typical afternoon in the park turns into a nightmare for single mom Karla Dyson (Academy Award winner Halle Berry) when her son suddenly disappears. Without a cell phone and knowing she has no time to wait for police help, Karla jumps in her own car and sets off in pursuit of the kidnappers. A relentless, edge-of- your seat chase ensues, where Karla must risk everything to not lose sight of her son. In this tense, action-fueled thriller, directed by Luis Prieto and from the producers of SALT and TRANSFORMERS, one mother’s heroic attempt to take back her son leads her to ask herself how far she will go to save her child.
Kidnap hits theaters August 4.
