Teaser Trailer: Drive Angry 3D

Russ and I already expressed our enthusiasm for Nicolas Cage's latest ridiculous endeavor, Drive Angry 3D, during a video blog of the film's Comic-Con panel, and now there's a teaser trailer to give a little taste of what we saw. Check it out after the break.

Bloody Disgusting has the teaser, which is embedded below.

At a mere 30 seconds, this teaser serves only to highlight the film's old school simplicity. The full trailer sells the film much better, giving a better sense of its energetic rhythm and bloody style. Not to mention, we saw it in 3D, which for me is half of the film's appeal. This is the first live action film since Avatar that really seems to highlight 3D in a fun and exciting way—even if it is just to deliver heaps of explosive, action-packed carnage—and a 2D trailer is incapable of showing why that is.

Official Synopsis:

In the newest 3D action-adventure from the director of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, DRIVE ANGRY stars Nicolas Cage as Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out of hell for one last chance at redemption. Intent on stopping a vicious cult who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice her baby beneath a full moon.

He's joined by Piper (Amber Heard) – a young, sexy waitress who liberates her ex-boyfriend's cherry-red muscle car in order to help Milton. Now, the two of them are hot on the trail of the deadly leader of the cult, Jonah King (Billy Burke), who believes it is his destiny to use the baby to unleash hell on earth.

But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton's problems. The police are after him too. And worse, an enigmatic killer known only as "The Accountant" – who has been sent by the Devil to retrieve Milton and deliver him back to hell. With wicked cunning and hypnotic savagery, the Accountant will relentlessly pursue Milton at high speed across the country until his mission is accomplished.

Fueled by high octane and pure rage, Milton must use his anger to go beyond all human limits to avenge his daughter's murder, before his last chance at redemption is revoked.

Summit Entertainment will release the film on February 11, 2011.
