The phrase "the best show you're not watching" gets thrown around a lot, but in the case of "Salem," it couldn't be more true. We've been singing its praises since Episode 1 so our mission at Sdcc was to find out what's ahead in Season 2.
Surprisingly, the powers-that-be, exec producers Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, were quite forthcoming while co-stars Janet Montgomery. Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Iddo Goldberg, and Elise Eberle were all incredibly charming and obviously invested in their characters.
Beware in case you're not caught up as spoilers for Season 1 abound!
We've found the horror crowd to a bit slow to pick up on just how hardcore the show can be at times so we queried Braga as to how we can help raise awareness. "I like that our show is not plastered all over buses," he responded. "I like being the show that launched this network [Wgn America]; I think it's cool. »

Wgn America‘s Salem Ashes, Ashes TV Show Review. Salem: Season 1, Episode 12: Ashes, Ashes began at the burial grounds, where Mercy Lewis (Elise Eberle) muttered wildly about the dead innocents that lay there, and of becoming Queen of the Night.

It's been three years and one day since "Green Lantern" appeared in theaters with a thud, so why not revisit all the painful ways it went wrong with this rejiggered trailer from Screen Junkies?
"Honest Movie Trailers" takes no prisoners when it comes to ripping apart a movie that stunk up the screen, and "Green Lantern" definitely let 'er rip. No one is safe here -- not the dumb-looking CGI, the nonsensical plot, or the limp performances from Ryan "Not Gosling" Reynolds and Blake Lively. "Too nerdy for mainstream America and too mainstream for nerdy America," this DC Comics flick made its production budget back only with help from foreign moviegoers; it brought in only $116.6M domestically, with $53M of that coming in on the opening weekend.
"Green Lantern" was a stinker, but can't we let bygones be bygones? Was it really that epically bad compared to, say, "R.I. »

Principal photography starts Monday on Canadian auteur Atom Egoyan's revenge thriller "Remember," produced by Robert and Ari Lantos and starring an international cast: Christopher Plummer (who won a supporting actor Oscar in 2010 for "Beginners"), Martin Landau, Dean Norris, Bruno Ganz, Jurgen Prochnow and Henry Czerny as Plummer's son. Let's hope the movie turns out better than Egoyan's last attempt at a thriller, "The Captive," which earned negative reviews after it was shown in the Cannes competition (critics might have been more forgiving had the film been displayed in an official sidebar). (Toh! coverage here.) A24 will release the film on VOD via DirectTV. Benjamin August's original screenplay for "Remember" combines a contemporary revenge plot with World War II history. Executive producers are Mark Musselman (“Being Julia”) and Anant Singh (“Mandela, Long Walk to »

A new trailer has been released for forthcoming thriller The Captive.
The clip sees a pair of frantic parents searching for their young daughter Cassandra, after she goes missing from her father's car.
Cassandra's mother soon turns against her husband, as the case develops through a number of complex twists.
The film is directed by Atom Egoyan and has already competed at the Cannes Film Festival. It was reported that audience members booed the film after its screening.
The Captive is released in the UK and the Us later this year. »
Filmmaker Atom Egoyan has, over the course of his career, garnered critical and commercial acclaim for a number of features, including The Sweet Hereafter, Where the Truth Lies, and Chloe. With his last feature coming in 2013, many were thus intrigued to learn that he was already at work on a new project. Titled The Captive, Egoyan takes on directing duties this time, along with co-writing the screenplay with David Fraser, and working with a cast that includes Ryan Reynolds, Rosario Dawson, Mireille Enos, and Kevin Durand. A Us trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Ryan Reynolds has a new psychological thriller coming out called The Captive, and it looks like it's going to be a very intense movie. It was directed by Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Devil's 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 officials perplexed as they attempt to find her."
There's no official release date set yet. »

Ryan Reynolds is not quite like Liam Neeson’s character in “Taken” here. He’s more of an average Joe who doesn’t have a unique set of skills, skills that make him a nightmare for people like the ones that took his daughter. But hey, it’s really cold up there near the Us-Canada border in Atom Egoyan’s “The Captive” (originally titled “Queen of the Night”) so you can imagine he won’t be running around the country karate chopping people in the neck. Unfortunately. Take a look at the intense first trailer for Atom Egoyan’s “The Captive.” It looks really good, in a depressing sort of way. The plot synopsis is also really complicated: Eight years after the disappearance of Cassandra, some disturbing indications seem to indicate that she’s still alive. Police, parents and Cassandra herself, will try to unravel the mystery of her disappearance. »
On a snowy day in Ontario, Matthew’s (Ryan Reynolds) daughter disappears. Eight years later, evidence of her existence begins to reappear. That’s the basic conceit of Atom Egoyan’s The Captive, which turns into a psychological thriller involving Matthew’s wife (Mireille Enos) and the two detectives on the case (Scott Speedman and Rosario Dawson).
If the film’s structure sounds vaguely familiar—that is, like many other prestige dramas—then you’re not wrong. The Captive premiered at Cannes earlier this year, to resounding boos and reviews that damned the film for its lack of innovation.

The Captive is another thriller, this one starring Ryan Reynolds and Mirieille Enos as a husband and wife whose daughter vanishes, only to suddenly reappear again eight years later. Then the parents discover that they've been spied on the whole time. What's that all about?
The intriguing premise is joined by a great supporting cast, including Rosario Dawson, Bruce Greenwood and the great Kevin Durand. Early reviews from Cannes weren't glowing, but the frosty, paranoid atmosphere in the trailer (below) still leaves us wanting to know what happens next.

Ryan Reynolds is frantic and puffy-eyed in the latest and most promising trailer for Atom Egoyan's festival thriller, “The Captive.” “This is going to be an awesome dinner,” Reynolds says to his on-screen daughter, before leaving her in the back of his truck to enter a pie shop. When he returns to the vehicle, she's gone. Reynolds’ character goes to the police, but is taken aback when they decide to interrogate him. “If you think that I did this,” Reynolds tells investigators, “then you come here and arrest me.” See video: Ryan Reynolds, Mireille Enos Search for Their Kidnapped Daughter in ‘Captives’ Trailer This. »

On a routine day, the daughter of a man played by Ryan Reynolds is kidnapped from his car, and that might be the least unusual crime in the film The Captive. Atom Egoyan directs a story about the suspicion that falls upon a family as an investigator (Rosario Dawson) attempts to unravel the crime. But […]

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. The film follows Matthew and Tina »

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. »

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 Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin 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. »

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 ...] »
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 »
