Atom Egoyan’s The
has a trailer! The film, formerly titled Queen of the Night
, is among three Canadian titles included in the
competition line-up for this year’s Cannes film festival. The other two are
David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars
and Xavier Dolan’s Mommy
Denys Arcand’s The Reign of Beauty
curiously absent. The Captive
Egoyan’s first trip to the Croisette after 2008’s Adoration
and we’ll cross our fingers that it’s a return to form
after the mild hiccup of last year’s Devil’s Knot
. Egoyan kind of looks to be combining his interest in technology to
the world of The Sweet Hereafter
, so The Captive
looks rather promising. Thoughts?
Egoyan’s new thriller, THE CAPTIVE, Ryan Reynolds plays Matthew, the father of
an abducted child, Cass. Eight years after his daughter’s abduction, a series
of disturbing clues surface, convincing Matthew that Cass, now 17, is still
alive. In a terrifying race against time, Matthew, the detectives, and even
Cass herself must play their parts in unravelling the mystery of her
disappearance and freeing her from captivity.
Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson, Mireille Enos, Kevin Durand, Christine
Horne, Bruce Greenwood.
