Every once in a while, Nicolas Cage surprises us by taking his career seriously. In between those films, he goes Full Cage in a series of campy action B-movies because it takes a lot of paychecks to afford taking the better roles, you know? Or something like that. Anyway, Cage has seemingly just lined up one of those occasional good roles, re-teaming with Leaving Las Vegas director Mike Figgis for the upcoming thriller Exit 147.
Just hours after Citizenfour, the documentary about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, took home the 2015 Academy Award for Best Documentary, Deadline published a report that another big name talent has joined the fictional version of Snowden’s story...
The Trust already had our attention when it cast Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood as corrupt cops — that’s quite an intriguing pairing, but the upcoming crime drama just guaranteed our interest by adding someone even more outstanding to the cast: iconic actor Jerry Lewis. Yes, as in the Jerry Lewis. And he’s playing just about the best part imaginable.
Nicolas Cage is, when he wants to be, one of the best and most inventive actors of his generation. But Nicolas Cage is, always, a man of questionable taste. While out doing press for his new movie ‘Outcast,’ Cage showcased that remarkably detachment from reality by having plenty of nice things to say about the work his co-star, Hayden Christensen, contributed to George Lucas’ ‘Star Wars’ prequels.
Nicolas Cage definitely makes some interesting choices, and it's never easy to tell which of his upcoming projects we should take seriously, but 'The Trust' definitely has potential to give us some of that good Cage action. The actor will co-star with Elijah Wood in the new film from newcomers Ben and Alex Brewer, playing crooked cop buddies who get in over their heads. Wood and Cage is not a pairing we'd ever imagine, but now that we think of it, it's pretty intriguing.
Nicolas Cage has made a habit of selecting atrocious film roles for the better part of a decade, so it’s always a pleasant surprise when he finds himself attached to something that actually sounds promising. Fresh off a Razzie nomination for the quick and dirty paycheck gig that was ‘Left Behind,’ Cage is set to lead ‘Army of One,’ a film adaptation of a truly bizarre story about man’s hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
Nic Cage is in a new movie that opened today called ‘Left Behind.’ There’s already a movie called ‘Left Behind’ that starred Kirk Cameron and this movie is probably a lot like that one, only Nic Cage is in it now. ‘Left Behind’ details the biblical rapture and what it would be like if the rapture happened while Nic Cage was piloting a commercial airliner. If ‘Left Behind’ was screened for critics, I wasn’t invited. So, on Friday morning I paid to see ‘Left Behind’ in the Kip’s Bay area of Manhattan. While watching ‘Left Behind,’ I kept a running diary. Here’s how that all went…
Usually when a studio is looking to promote their movie, they'll include a quote from a film critic lavishing superlatives on the movie in question. Nicolas Cage's upcoming movie 'Left Behind' is trying a different approach. Instead of quoting film critics, they're quoting Satan, The Prince of Darkness.
Nicolas Cage is a serious actor. And serious actors do accents and period epics. So here's the trailer for 'Outcast,' starring Cage and someone whose name you used to remember, Hayden Christensen. All you really need to know is that this movie is set in China in the 12th century, where everyone speaks english and Cage's character is known as The White Ghost.
HBO's 'The Leftovers' has the whole Biblical rapture thing down pat, and now it's time for Nic Cage to get in on the action. The full-length 'Left Behind' trailer is here to show a world in which a chunk of the population mysteriously vanishes, including the pilots flying Nic Cage's plane!
