Do you remember the fake Anna Scott movie in Notting Hill? It was like a super serious space movie, and the little in-movie clip was of Anna Scott looking super serious, in space.

Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson, and Mireille Enos joined director Atom Egoyan at the photo call for their film The Captive today in Cannes. They all look great. Unfortunately the film…was not well received. Grace Of Monaco was already a bust at the festival and it looks like The Captive is getting similar reviews. Full Story
