With this new NSFGrandma clip from the Bangkok Dangerous remake, Nic Cage has come down with a serious case of next levs. His amazing hat inexplicably disappears halfway through, cue amazing hairline. We can only hope that the entire movie is plagued with such conundrums/magic. Moreover, the Pang Twins (The Eye trilogy) have apparently remade their own film into a videogame that plays like an incorrigible 6-year-old tapping jump, shoot and kick with a hammer. But what earns the clip Pam-like giggles and replay action is the glorious arm chopping scene, followed by a requisite gunshot. Are we supposed to laugh or be shocked/impressed?

Cage stars as a hitman “who’s in Bangkok to pull off a series of jobs falls for a local woman and bonds with his errand boy.” Bond on. Unlike the original 1999 film, Cage’s assassin is not a deaf-mute, thereby limiting this film’s potential to make the world blush. It opens on September 5th.

Discuss: The arm.

Editor’s Update: We’ve updated this story with the film’s official movie trailer.


A poster and movie trailer for the Pang Brothers‘ August remake of their ’99 Thai crime thriller, Bangkok Dangerous, starring Nicholas Cage has hit the Web. Really, is this the best poster a designer could envision with a title like that? Cage, who at one point was also attached to a U.S. remake of Oldboy (those words always make a couple peoples’ heads explode like Riki-Oh), plays a hitman who falls in love with a local lass and falls friends for an errand boy (like Short Round?!?). In the original film, the assassin was a deaf mute, but not here. Cage has to do his Elvis impression to pull in the world’s ladies, no?
