A Trio Of Exclusive Images From THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED
The anticipation is almost over.

J Blakeson's tightly wrought thriller The Disappearance Of Alice Creed left a mighty big impression when it screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and with the North American release - on VOD and in select theaters - coming August 6th from Anchor Bay Films we've enjoyed a steady stream of materials from the picture.

And now, to give another taste, ScreenAnarchy has just received three exclusive images from the film, one dedicated to each of stars Gemma Arterton, Eddie Marsan, and Martin Compston. Check out the gallery below for those plus the links for earlier coverage. Don't miss this one!

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, a 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.

A taut, emotionally intense thriller, the debut feature from writer-director J Blakeson eschews genre convention, generating tension from the sexual and psychological ties that bind captive to captors.Produced by Adrian Sturges (The Escapist), the film stars Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia, Tamara Drewe, Quantum of Solace), Eddie Marsan (Happy-Go-Lucky, Sherlock Holmes) and Martin Compston (Sweet Sixteen, Red Road)
