'The Death of Superman Lives' Trailer: See Nicolas Cage (Almost) Play the Man of Steel

by Jacob Hall July 25, 2014 @ 12:32 PM
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.

Jim Carrey Made a Sculpture of Nicolas Cage and He Brought It On 'The Tonight Show'

by Kate Erbland April 12, 2014 @ 10:35 AM
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).

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.

Released in 1997, 'Con Air' starred Nicolas Cage as Cameron Poe, a war veteran sent to prison for using excessive force on a drunk man who tried to assault his wife. Granted parole and placed on a prison transport plane, Cameron finds getting home isn't that easy when the fellow inmates stage a coup and take over the plane. 'Con Air' was a massive box office success and became an instant action -- and Nicolas Cage -- classic. Seventeen years later we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

'Joe' Trailer: Nicolas Cage and David Gordon Green Get Back to the Basics

The 'Joe' trailer is all about men trying to ground themselves again. We're not just talking about the character of Joe Ransom, a former convict trying to fit back in with society, but also star Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green, both of whom have run into their fair share of rough patches in the past few years. If the trailer is any indication, 'Joe' will be a return to form for both of them.

A long, long time ago, in a fourth season of 'Community' most of us would prefer to forget, word from Dan Harmon came down that one of his sadly-unrealized ideas for a future episode would have involved an appreciation class for reigning internet king Nicolas Cage. Now, given Dan Harmon's 'Community' season 5 return and its kitchen sink approach, the episode concept has finally been let out of its, uh...cage.

See the Cast of 'Wild at Heart' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes December 9, 2013 @ 3:34 PM
Released in 1990, David Lynch's 'Wild at Heart' stars Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern as Sailor and Lula, a young and free-spirited North Carolina couple on the run from Lula's overbearing mother, who has hired various hitmen to murder Sailor. Lynch's bizarre road-trip romance was inspired by 'The Wizard of Oz' and Elvis Presley, and received incredibly mixed reviews from both critics and audiences alike, as Lynch's films often do. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of this wild ride and see what they're up to now.
