if you can some how manage to get it opened, spray some lubracant on the button inside the door. if not you'll need to replace the release cable.

The cable is held in place by a metal bracket. If it cam off the bracket it won't work.
Look behind the part you pull and you will see the wire and the outer part of the cable. The end of the outer part of the cable has a groove neer the end. This groove slides onto a slot that is located just behind the pull latch. Once you see it it will make since on how it should go.
You can also grab the outer part of the cable and pull the inner wire. If you can pull the wire almost out, then it is broken. But the chances of that are very low.

SOURCE: Trunk stuck on a 03 Corolla
I was able to unlock my trunk by using a wood pole to operate the interior safety unlock handle, which is located just above the trunk floor, against the rear of the trunk lid. You simply insert the wood pole between your rear seats, while attempting to locate the handle release. When you find the handle, use the wood pole to push down on it.
Then, I had to take the top of the truck mat loose by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the plastic plug holders loose from the trunk. I also had to use a 10mm socket to loosen the trunk locking mechanism. Once inside, I notice the remote release cable ball had dislodged from its slot. I simply placed the ball in its slot and reassembled the trunk.
Problem solve. :)

For the time being, you can crawl down under the dash, follow the parking brake cable and see where it connects to the brake mechanism under the dash. You will be able to pull or pry on that part in order to release the parking brake. To replace, remove the cable from the points where it's attached (dash, brake release mechanism) and reinstall the new one.
