Someone is Watching Ryan Reynolds in Us Trailer for 'The Captive'

10 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back when the film premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, we got a teaser trailer for The Captive starring Ryan Reynolds. Now that the film is poised for a release in the United States this fall, a new theatrical trailer for Atom Egoyan's film has arrived, showing off more of the mystery thriller. The story, which also stars Rosario Dawson and Mireille Enos, centers around the disappearance of young girl, and the plot thickens when clues begin to surface that she's alive eight years later. The film didn't really get that warm of a reception at Cannes back in May, and the trailer is edited in a rather peculiar way. Watch? Here's the Us trailer for Atom Egoyan's The Captive from YouTube: The Captive is directed by Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Devil's Knot), who also co-wrote the script with David Fraser.

Watch: First Trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ ‘The Captive’

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first official trailer for director Atom Egoyan’s “The Captive” has been released online.

Set in the snowy heights of northern Ontario, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Matthew, father to a girl who mysteriously disappears one day, only to turn up eight years later. Scott Speedman and Rosario Dawson also star as detectives investigating her case.

The Captive” screened as part of the main competition section at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Egoyan has previously received wide acclaim and awards at Cannes for 1994’s “Exotica” and 1997’s “The Sweet Hereafter,” the latter earning him an Oscar nom for directing.

His latest effort has been less than positively received. Justin Chang called the film “a ludicrous abduction thriller that finds a once-great filmmaker slipping into previously unentered realms of self-parody” in his Variety review.

The Captive” will be distributed by A24, which has not yet set an official release date. »

Watch: Find Out Who's Watching Who In New Trailer For Atom Egoyan's 'The Captive' With Ryan Reynolds & Mireille Enos

12 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Atom Egoyan went to the Cannes Film Festival this spring with this latest effort, "The Captive," and the results were not good. Not even close. Our own Jessica Kiang noted that were boos scattered at her screening, and her savage review called the film a "lurid, credulity-stretching" dud, and something of a "Prisoners"-lite as it also tackles a missing child, and the consequences that fall out on her parents and those around them. Starring Ryan ReynoldsScott SpeedmanMireille EnosRosario DawsonKevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the story centers around the disappearance of young girl, and what follows when eight years later, clues begin to surface that she's alive. What gets uncovered is something sinister, criminal and creepy, with the film hopping around in time, to tell a story of the investigation and much more. On paper it sounds like something decent, but in execution, it appears not to have. »

Atom Egoyan's The Captive Looks Promising [Trailer]

13 hours ago | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Canadian director Atom Egoyan has not been enjoying a good streak over the last few years and it's getting to the point now where his output of mediocre (or down right terrible) will begin to outweigh the highlights of his career.

The Captive looked like it could be a change of pace for the director whose previous genre entries have left a lot to be desired. Co-written by Egoyan and David Fraser, the movie stars Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos as parents whose daughter mysteriously disappears. Eight years later, they begin to see indications that she might still be alive.

Along with Reynolds and Enos, The Captive rounds up an all-star Canadian cast including S [Continued ...] »

Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson take no prisoners in The Captive trailer

Stop me if you heard this one: a working class father loses his little girl. Fearing she has been kidnapped, he begins a journey to find those responsible and bring them to justice. So, what movie does that remind you of? If you said Prisoners, you are right on. But, where the Hugh Jackman thriller was steeped in darkness and brooding, The Captive is bright white and haunting. So, what is the difference? Director Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) is known for his startling character »

A Nearly Unrecognizable Robert Pattinson Holds His Own in The Rover: Our Review

18 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Audiences and critics at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival weren't kind to too many of this year's early crop of offerings, with Nicole Kidman's Grace of Monaco and Ryan Reynolds's vehicle The Captive leading the pack of worst-reviewed movies. But The Rover was a rare bright spot in an otherwise relatively dim field so far. The tense, gritty film, which pits Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson against each other at times - and makes them begrudging allies at others - won't be for everyone, but it promises something powerful for those who can stomach its dismal worldview and brutal violence. It also may give Pattinson his best shot yet at proving his post-Twilight staying power. Source: A24 Films The Rover was cowritten by actor Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby) and director David Michôd, who previously teamed up on the critically acclaimed 2010 film Animal Kingdom.

Mr. Turner tops Cannes Screen jury scores

29 May 2014 3:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The results are in from Screen International’s team of top film critics at the Cannes Film Festival.

Click here to download a Pdf of the grid

Screen International’s band of top film critics taking part in our annual – and always provocative – Cannes Screen Jury Grid were pretty much on the ball for this year’s festival, and while some favourites failed to tally with the views of the official Cannes jury it is easy to see where opinions coincided.

The bookmakers had Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep as favourite to take the main prize going into the festival, and so this proved correct. And while the film never quite reached the Screen jury’s top score - that honour fell to Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner, which took the lead from the start and never really looked like being beaten - it remained in second place right up until the final day.

'The Captive' Review: Atom Egoyan's Latest Fails to Impress

25 May 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As a celebration of the unprecedented number of Canadian films that competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2014 Cannes International Film Festival, Moviefone Canada is highlighting each of these works.

For decades now, Atom Egoyan has been one of Canada's most celebrated and lauded directors. From massive critical hits such as "Exotica" and "The Sweet Hereafter," he has established himself among the elite of English Canadian film auteurs.

Egoyan is no stranger to the Cannes Film Festival, having unspooled many of his films here, and he was an instrumental member of the jury back in '96, when David Cronenberg won his Special Jury Award for "daring and audacity."

Egoyan brings crime drama "The Captive" this year, starring Vancouver's Ryan Reynolds along with Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson, Mireille Enos, and longtime collaborator, Quebec native Bruce Greenwood.

Egoyan scripted the film with his friend and previous collaborator David Fraser, incorporating what Egoyan »

Cannes 2014 highs and lows: Foxcatcher, Lost River, Whiplash, more

25 May 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The final red carpet has been walked, the Palme d'Or has been awarded, and the Cannes Film Festival is officially over for another year.

The general consensus on the Croisette seemed to be that 2014's Competition slate wasn't one of the strongest in recent memory, with several strong contenders but few standouts - although Andrey Zvyagintsev's Leviathan barreled in at the last minute to change some minds on the latter.

But there was still plenty to discuss in the Competition selection, not to mention gems across the Un Certain Regard, Directors' Fortnight and Critics' Week strands. We've rounded up the best and worst of this year's crop below.

The Best

Foxcatcher

Bennett Miller's psychologically searching sports drama is the first surefire Oscar contender of the year, propelled by a trio of career-best performances from Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carrell.

Xavier Dolan Wins Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival

24 May 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For the first time in his short but impressive career, Canadian director Xavier Dolan has won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Technically, he shared the honour with French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, who also won the Jury Prize for "Goodbye to Language." Quebec native Dolan won the prize for his film "Mommy," which has been receiving rave reviews across the board since it premiered at Cannes.

There has been a ton of Dolan buzz emanating out of Cannes, where he presented his fifth directed movie in as many years. The Jury Prize is considered the third-most prestigious prize at the festival; Dolan was the youngest person in contention for the Jury Prize and the Palme d'Or, which was awarded to "Winter Sleep." Critics heaped praise on "Mommy," and it was one of the early favourites to win.

Cannes: Will ‘Leviathan’ Win the Palme d’Or?

23 May 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before the first competition title had even unspooled at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, more than one oddsmaker suggested that there was already a serious frontrunner for the Palme d’Or, and it was clearly Naomi Kawase. A Cannes competition regular whose strenuously meditative, nature-obsessed art films have already earned her the Camera d’Or and the Grand Prix, the Japanese director would finally bring home the big one, the logic went, not because “Still the Water” was such a masterpiece (although Kawase, with almost admirable immodesty, had no problem characterizing it as such), but rather because she happens to be a woman. And with Jane Campion presiding over this year’s festival jury, surely we would not be denied the spectacle of the first female director to win the Palme d’Or personally anointing the second — and far more likely that it would be Kawase than the younger, »
