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!
Once upon a time, Nicolas Cage almost played Superman. In a movie directed by Tim Burton. From a script by Kevin Smith. Which was based on the iconic "Death of Superman" comic book storyline. And then it all fell apart, transforming it into one of Hollywood's greatest "What if?" narratives. 'Superman Lives' may have died before making it in front of cameras, but at least the new documentary 'The Death of Superman Lives' will give us an insider's look at what went wrong.
Released in 1997, John Woo's 'Face/Off' starred John Travolta as an FBI agent who trades faces with a terrorist played by Nicolas Cage to try and thwart his latest plan. The action-packed film was a smashing success with both critics and audiences alike, and became an instant classic. Now, 17 years later, we revisit the cast of this awesome action flick and see what they're up to now.
In 1987 the Coen brothers released their third film, 'Raising Arizona,' which followed repeat criminal Hi McDunnough (Nicolas Cage) and his cop wife Edwina (Holly Hunter), who discover they are unable to have children, so they kidnap one of the newborn quintuplets belonging to a wealthy furniture magnate. While it wasn't a big success upon initial release, 'Raising Arizona' went on to gain a huge cult following in the years since, and is now considered a classic. 27 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.
Here is just a small sample of some of the topics Nicolas Cage covered in a fast-talking, quickly moving, and oddly satisfying interview with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night: childhood Kiss performances, if it's cool we know what the Kiss guys look like without make-up, life insurance, (almost) dying while surfing, a tiny sculpture Jim Carrey made of him, a lizard wearing a top hat -- and that's just stuff that happens in the first half of the interview (the second half is embedded below).
With 'Joe' about to hit theaters, audiences will soon get a reminder of just how good Cage can be. But let's celebrate his long-awaited return to excellence by combing through his filmography and picking the moments that best define his special brand of craziness. Anyone can be good, but only Nicolas Cage can be Nicolas Cage.
There are some actors that I just inexplicably root for. I have no idea what this means or why I do this, but the best way I can explain it is that it’s almost as if the actor is a sports team and I want that actor to win. But at least with sports, there’s regional pride to fuel a sometimes unhealthy rooting interest in what are essentially strangers. There’s really no explanation as to why I feel this with an actor like Nicolas Cage. But, yet, I do.
