The Prey features strong trailer
There's a French theme to the stories I'm writing today especially with the trailer for Eric Valette's film The Prey or La Proie. The film was originally released in France in April of last year but is due to be seen in Japan this month and the UK in July.
Valette directs the thriller and considering he's also recently been directing episodes of the French television thriller Braquo it's going to be well worth watching, especially judging by the trailer.
Here's the blurb for The Prey which sounds damn good.
Bankrobber Franck Adrien serves a prison sentence after successfully robbing a national bank, but before he gets caught he manages to hide the money and it's not just police that are looking for the money. His cellmate is Jean-Louis Maurel who is suspected rapist/child molester but he claims his innocence and the court finds him not guilty, Maurel promises to look after Franck Adriens family when Maurel gets out. But one day, a man called Manuel Carrega tells Franck Adrien that Jean-Louis Maurel is suspected serial killer and that Franck Adriens family might be in danger. Franck Adrien escapes from prison and police officer Claire Linné and her team takes up the chase.
Now the trailer, and while you might be thinking that it makes The Prey look like a number of other Hollywood films that have come before, remember that it's just a trailer, and even though some of it looks familiar it already looks like it's delivering it harder and grittier than you might expect.
Here's the trailer that comes through TrailerAddict:
That's caught my eye already, it's definitely going on the watch list.
