The Disappearance of Alice Creed (More Gemma!)

The Disappearance of Alice CreedI was looking through the iTunes trailer page today and look what I found.  I thought that beautiful face looked familiar.  Leave it to me to find more news on Gemma Arterton.  The beautiful vixen seems to be everywhere nowadays and I’m not complaining.  Are you?  In addition to her upcoming Prince of Persia role Gemma will be starring in the British thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed this August.  I can’t wait! I’ve included the US theatrical trailer below as well as a synopsis of the film.  My birthday comes early this August.  Thanks Gemma!

Two men — one in his twenties, the other nearer forty, both intensely focused on the task at hand — line the inside of a transit van with plastic. Shopping, they buy a drill, mattress and other supplies. In a small flat they assemble a bed for the mattress and staple foam insulation and board to the walls and windows of a bedroom. Then, their meticulous preparations complete, they kidnap a young woman. They drag her from the street into the back of the van and, with a bag over her head and ball gag in her mouth, take her back to the flat, tying her to the bed in the room they have converted into a prison cell. The kidnappers are Danny (Martin Compston) and Vic (Eddie Marsan), two ex—cons planning to make a mint on the ransom for the young woman. The younger, nervier of the two, Danny defers to the more experienced Vic, who acts with a steely conviction. Their hostage is Alice Creed (Gemma Arterton), daughter of a rich businessman, chosen by Vic and Danny as their passport to a better life. Terrified and immobile at first, it soon becomes clear that Alice isn’t about to let her captors use her as capital without a fight. As determined to escape as Vic and Danny are to succeed, Alice enters into a battle of wills which strains the already fractious relationship between the two men. As the deadline for the exchange draws nearer, all three are brought close to breaking point, with Vic and Danny’s foolproof plan descending into a desperate struggle for survival.
