First Teaser For The Captive
Atom Egoyan's new thriller

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 at 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 is missing.

With Rosario Dawson, Scott Speedman, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood also in the cast, The Captive has yet to score a UK distributor, but its Cannes exposure should certainly settle that. Egoyan, meanwhile, has West Memphis Three drama Devil’s Knot set to arrive on June 13.
