Halle Berry’s trailer for upcoming thriller Kidnap has been released, and it looks like edge-of-your-seat stuff.

The Monster’s Ball Oscar winner stars as the mum of a kidnapped child, but don’t mistake this for a weepy, powerless performance – Halle unleashes her mama bear to react in a way that will have every parent cheering her on.

It opens with her taking her young son for a day out at a playground, but when he disappears from view, she springs into action to try to find him.

Then comes every mum’s worst nightmare, when she spots him calling out to her just as he is bundled into a car by a kidnapper.

Halle’s character is not the kind of mum to take this lying down though, and she clings to the car as it speeds away. When that doesn’t work, she refuses to sit and wait for a report to be filed in a police station, and instead sets out on a high-speed car chase to rescue her son herself, snarling: “You took the wrong kid.”

If the trailer’s this exciting, we can’t wait to see how the rest of the film turns out. Find out when it’s released later this year.
