Because the basic plot of Ruba Nadda‘s Inescapable is about a badass father trying to rescue his kidnapped daughter, it will instantly be compared to Taken (even though you only need to look as far back as 24 to see a story about a badass father trying to rescue his kidnapped daughter).  There’s so much in Inescapable that shoots down comparisons to Taken including the setting, the circumstances surrounding the daughter’s kidnapping, the protagonist’s background, and how he goes about his business.  Sadly, Inescapable stalls as a thriller because it never figures how to fully take advantage of its unique qualities.

Dr. Julian Bashir logged some serious travel as the chief medical officer of space station Deep Space Nine and the USS Defiant.  The man who played the good doctor for seven seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Alexander Siddig, has collected a huge stash of frequent flier miles on his own, lately.

Collider caught up with Siddig during his worldwide tour to promote Cairo Time which opened this past weekend in limited release to the highest per theater average ($62,250 at five frequently sold-out locations for a $12,450 per screen) of any film in release over the frame.  Hit the jump for the audio and transcript of the interview and for all things Deep Space Nine, his controversial new film Miral with Freida Pinto and director Julian Schnabel and whether he’s been approached about taking part in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek sequel.
