There was a time when a new film from Atom Egoyan was an exciting prospect, but recently that isn’t as true. The filmmaker has swung very hard and missed with recent efforts like the “Prisoners“-lite “The Captive,” movie-of-the-week style “Devil’s Knot,” and the corny, erotic thriller “Chloe.” But could this new effort find him back on the right track? We’ll see, as the first trailer for “Remember” has arrived.
This thriller, in which history and a tale of revenger come together, has a pretty solid cast. It includes Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, Bruno Ganz, Dean Norris, and Jurgen Prochnow. Here’s the official logline: “Remember” is a compelling thriller in which the darkest chapter of the 20th century collides with a contemporary mission of revenge.
No word yet on a release date, but given that Egoyan is a Cannes regular, perhaps this will make its World Premiere on the Croisette? Watch below.
