An intense trailer has been released for Ryan Reynold's new psychological thriller Captives, and it looks really good. The movie comes from director Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Devil Knot), and it also stars Scott Speedman, Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast, and Bruce Greenwood.
The story follows Matthew (Reynolds) and Tina (Enos), "a couple torn apart by the circumstances behind the mysterious disappearance of their daughter, who seems to be alive in captivity eight years later with her unknown location being broadcast online, leaving official perplexed as they attempt to find her."
I've always enjoyed Reynolds as an actor, but he's had a long streak of bad films. The best movie I've seen him recently was The Voices up at Sundance, but this looks like it's a great project for him too. He just needs to make Deadpool already. The movie is set to premiere at Cannes Film Festival. »

One of the most prestigious festivals on the film circuit is the Cannes Film Festival. Over the years, numerous films that have made their premiere at the festival have gone on to critical acclaim and awards, including Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now, Dancer In The Dark, and The Tree Of Life.Over the years, this had led to the announcement of which films will be screening at the festival to become important on its own, as many film fans around the world are curious to know which filmmakers will choose to make their premieres at the festival. With the 2014 incarnation of the festival set to get underway on May 14th, the official selection that will be screening at the 11-day event has now been released. Opening the festival will be Oliver Dahan’s Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman. Other entries include Sils Maria, an Oliver Assayas film starring Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, »

Atom Egoyan makes challenging films, but even by his standards, his 2014 output is going to be tough to watch. While his courtroom drama Devil’s Knot gets a Us release on May 9 – a film about the trial of three teenagers accused of killing three young children in a satanic ritual – his follow-up will be screening in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and is currently called Captives - though that may change for release in different territories.
Starring Ryan Reynolds, as a father whose young daughter mysteriously disappears, Captives seems to be a film that gradually unfurls – transforming into something increasingly sinister and disturbing, as layers of grimness are deliberately peeled back. It would appear that Egoyan – along with co-writer David Fraser – has created something that relentlessly preys on the worst fears of the audience, including bad things happening to our children, loss, uncertainty, powerlessness, and that horrifying discomfort of intrusion. »

In the following years, the police have identified the girl on the internet, but have had no success in tracking down her physical presence. The daughter has aged 8 years since her disappearance. The disturbing nature of her "broadcasts" is gradually revealed. The new movie is directed by Atom Egoyan (Chloe, Citadel) and will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. Trailer: »
We haven't been this stressed out watching Ryan Reynolds since Buried. The trailer for The Captive is out, and Reynolds plays a father whose daughter goes missing. Before long, he and his wife (Mireille Enos), a hotel maid, start to notice strange things hinting that someone is watching them. The setup is anxiety-producing, but then the trailer just starts getting creepy when you realize someone (Kevin Durand) totally is watching them, but you don't know why. Rosario Dawson plays an investigator, while Scott Speedman and Bruce Greenwood costar. The movie is set to debut at Cannes Film Festival this year, and stay tuned for a Us release date.

Could this be a return to form for Atom Egoyan? Following the announcement of its official selection for this year’s Cannes film festival, the first trailer for Egoyan’s The Captive is online, and it looks like a tense, psychological thriller.
Since hitting his stride in the 90s with a series of multi-faceted, insightful dramas—Speaking Parts, The Adjuster, Exotica, The Sweet Hereafter, Felicia’s Journey, Ararat—Egoyan has hit a slump in regard to critical acclaim for his more recent work. But hopefully “The Captive” will put the major Canadian filmmaker—and former Cannes winner—back on the map. The plot, which involves the disappearance of a little girl and her subsequent re-surfacing eight years later on an unknown web-feed, seems like a good fit for the veteran director.

With the announcement today that it will screen in competition at Cannes, it seems only logical for the first trailer for Atom Egoyan’s new thriller, The Captive, to appear online. Take a look at Ryan Reynolds thrown into a nightmare… The Captive finds Egoyan on typically psychological form, wrapping the story of a kidnapping into something even deeper and darker. Reynolds plays Matthew, whose daughter Cass (Peyton Kennedy) is swiped from the back of his truck during a roadside diner. So begins a terrifying manhunt that will test the limits of the relationships between Reynolds, his wife (Mireille Enos) and others involved in the case, including the investigators assigned to try to track Cass down and the predators who are playing a twisted game.Set across eight years, the film brings last year’s Prisoners to mind with its story of twisting loyalties and clues to what happened while Cass was missing. »
The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut. The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »
Earlier today we found out that super hunky movie star Ryan Reynolds is headed to France with "The Captive," a kidnapping thriller directed by the always interesting and occasionally wonderful Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan ("The Sweet Hereafter," and that weird sex movie with Kevin Bacon). Well, following the announcement, we are gifted with a trailer for the movie, which looks tense, tragic and really snowy.
In the trailer, Reynolds plays a doting dad who leaves his little girl in the car while he goes to pick up a pie. When he comes back to the car, she is missing, leading to a frantic search and what appears to be a pretty elaborate conspiracy. Other cast members who appear in the trailer include Mireille Enos (as Reynolds's wife and the mother of the missing girl), Rosario Dawson as an investigator, Kevin Durand as (surprise!) a creepy weirdo, and Scott Speedman and »

The thriller, directed by Atom Egoyan (“Chloe”) co-stars Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Greenwood and Kevin Durand. Also read: Superhero Career Boost or Bust?

I can't say Atom Egoyan's name necessarily gets my blood pumping, but his new film Captives, which was just announced as a competition title at this year's Cannes Film Festival, sounds very intriguing. The thriller will almost certainly be compared to Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners as it centers on a father's (Ryan Reynolds) search for his kidnapped daughter in the Toronto snow, but there is definitely far more to it than just that as this first look trailer emphasizes. Along with Reynolds the film co-stars Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Scott Speedman, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood.

The Cannes Film Festival has announced its line-up of films for the 2014 festival running from May 14 to May 25, and as usual, it includes a number of familiar names in competition as well as a few new faces and first-time directors.

Are we possibly looking at a career rebound for Ryan Reynolds? Kicking off the year with good notices for the Sundance oddball comedy "The Voices," the actor will be packing his bags shortly for Cannes where Atom Egoyan's "The Captive" will premiere. And now the first trailer has arrived. To be honest, Egoyan's output of late has been patchy at best (his previous effort, "The Devil's Knot," is a bit of a misfire) but we're compelled by this one. Co-starring Scott Speedman, Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the film rides a "Prisoners"-esque vibe—set along in a longer timeline—the psychological thriller examines how the kidnapping of a man’s young daughter destroys the relationships among those involved. As the film teases out the complex threads weaving together the victim, her family, the predators and the investigators, the mystery is revealed as »

The last four or five editions of the Cannes Film Festival have been heavy on global movie star power. Sure, it won't always compete with Hollywood fueled Toronto, but the programmers have made sure the paparazzi have had someone pretty to photograph on the festival's legendary red carpet. 2014 is no different. (You could also argue more well known actors have jumped into he prestige game in their off time over the past decade, but, frankly, it's somewhat cyclical.) With that in mind, here are 10 big names who we expect to follow their films to Cannes in just a few weeks. Robert Pattinson The former "Twilight" star has been to Cannes before. He starred in David Cronenberg's drama "Cosmopolis" which premiered on the Croisette in 2012. Now, he's back with another Cronenberg title, "Map to the Stars," and David Michôd's "The Rover" alongside Guy Pearce. Nicole Kidman We've known this one for awhile. »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.
The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”
One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

The official Facebook page for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has debuted a series of storyboards featuring art from co-director Frank Miller that looks as though it were torn directly from the comic book. The pages feature characters Ava Lord (Eva Green), a very naked Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba), Gail (Rosario Dawson), and Marv (Mickey Rourke) rendered in black and white. Take a sneak peek at Miller's latest collaboration with Robert Rodriguez.

In addition to some recently released live-action images, we've now got a look at some of Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For storyboard images used for the film. To me, they look like panels from Miller's source material, which makes sense considering his films are aimed at bringing the pages of his graphic novels to life. Plenty of style on display here, but we'll have to wait until later this summer to see if the sequel's got the substance to match. *Fyi, the images could be considered Nsfw depending on how uptight your workplace is. Starring Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, Powers Boothe, Christopher Lloyd, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For stars Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy. New cast members include: Eva Green as Ava Lord, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Dennis Haysbert as Manute, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Jeremy Piven as Bob, »
