Ryan Reynolds’ Latest ‘Captive’ Trailer Actually Presents a Watchable Film (Video)

Atom Egoyan’s kidnapping thriller also stars Rosario Dawson, Scott Speedman and Mireille Enos

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.”

This new, extended trailer features a frustrated Reynolds, searching frantically for his missing kid. And, when watching it, Denis Villeneuve’s “Prisoners” — in which Hugh Jackman gives a powerful performance as a distraught father on a quest to find his lost child — springs to mind.

If Jackman’s “Prisoners” character personifies vengeance and anger, however, Reynolds’ personifies panic and distress.

TheWrap’s own Steve Pond screened “The Captive” at Cannes and called it “overwrought and illogical,” but this new new trailer actually looks promising.
