Rage trailer Nicolas Cage

This film Rage was once called Tokarev, but the basics are the same: Nicolas Cage plays a guy whose daughter is kidnapped one night. But there’s no question that this is some random victimization. No, the problem is that Cage’s character’s criminal past has come back to haunt him. And despite the good advice of Danny Glover, a guy who is great at giving cautious, good advice, Cage goes right back to his bad old ways.

Oh, and the daughter is played by Aubrey Peeples, who we’ll soon see as Jem in Jon M. Chu’s film Jem and the Holograms.

Tye Sheridan and Nicolas Cage in David Gordon Green's Joe

Here’s a new trailer for Joe, which teams director David Gordon Green with Nicolas Cage. Both men have started to be known more for their broad comic and genre work, but this movie shows that both can really deliver on the dramatic front when they have a mind to. Here Cage is paired with Tye Sheridan, the young actor who was so good in Mud, playing a young man with a tousled family, who develops a surrogate father/son relationship with Cage’s character Joe.

We’ve seen one French trailer for the film already, but this is the first domestic edit, and it’s a lot better. There’s less plot given away here, and a lot more suggestion of character. Check it out below. Read More »

Nicolas Cage in Left Behind

We’ll say this for Nic Cage: you can’t accuse him of having a predictable career. Just yesterday, we were eagerly looking forward to seeing the Oscar winner return to form with David Gordon Green’s Joe. Today, we’re back to questioning his taste in thrillers thanks to the first clip from Left Behind.

Based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins‘ bestselling religious series about the Rapture, the sci-fi thriller follows a group of survivors left to watch chaos unfold on Earth. The books were adapted for the screen once before, with Kirk Cameron in the lead role, but this new version, directed by Vic Armstrong (The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles) is intended to be a more “mainstream” version. Watch the scene after the jump.

Tye Sheridan and Nicolas Cage in David Gordon Green's Joe

Having spent most of the past decade overacting in one cheapie thriller after another, Nicolas Cage sometimes draws more jeers than applause these days, even though his fanbase is probably bigger than ever. And on the all-too-rare occasion that he finds a project worthy of his talents, it becomes clear that he can still bring it when he wants to.

One such showcase is Joe, David Gordon Green‘s gritty drama about an ex-con (Cage) who strikes up an unlikely bond with a troubled teen (Tye Sheridan of Mud and Tree of Life). The film made the festival rounds last year, and is now gearing up for theatrical release. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

‘Tokarev’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage Does What He Has to Do

Tokarev

At one point in the trailer for Tokarev, the new thriller by Paco Cabezas, a stern old cop played by Danny Glover warns Nicolas Cage‘s ex-criminal character not to fall back into old habits. Cage’s character does not seem terribly interested in that advice, and based on the mere fact that Cage is in this movie at all, neither is Cage himself.

Though Cage’s next big-screen appearance will be in David Gordon Green’s Joe, a gritty Southern drama that’s been earning high praise all over the film festival circuit, Tokarev brings him right back to the cheesy genre territory where he more often resides these days. As you’d expect, it’s chock full of violence and overwrought angst, with at least two scenes of Cage majorly freaking out. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Jack and Jill

It seems like every few months, there’s a new article about how movie stardom just isn’t what it used to be, and how even the biggest names can no longer guarantee a box office smash. Nevertheless, the world’s most popular actors continue to get paid a lot, and not all of them actually make those hefty paychecks worth it.

According to Forbes, the worst value in Hollywood right now is Adam Sandler, whose Jack & Jill and That’s My Boy tanked horribly. He’s followed closely by Katherine Heigl and Reese Witherspoon, and at more of a distance by his pal Kevin James. Find out who the next six are after the jump.

Bad_Lieutenant_Nicolas_Cage-1

A few years back, we wrote about the intriguing prospect of Nicolas Winding Refn teaming up with Harrison Ford for The Dying of the Light, a script by Paul Schrader. Sadly, that iteration of the project fell apart soon after when Ford decided to pull out, and Refn went on to make Drive instead. But now it’s back alive with a new team.

Schrader signed on last month to direct from his own script, with an unnamed “A-actor” in the lead. Now he’s revealed that the big-deal movie star in question is Nicolas Cage. Hit the jump to get details on the plot and more.
