Although he’s the man behind some of the finest films of the last few decades (The Sweet Hereafter, Exotica), it’s been some time since Atom Egoyan has crafted a worthwhile feature. Following up The Captive and Devil’s Knot, the Canadian director is returning this year with what will hopefully be a comeback: a new revenge thriller titled Remember. While there’s no release date yet, the first trailer has now arrived.

The plot ensues when Zev (Plummer), an old man himself, embarks on a cross-continent road trip for justice, uncovering long-hidden secrets.
