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.

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.

See the Cast of 'Valley Girl' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes November 5, 2013 @ 10:00 AM
Released in 1983, 'Valley Girl' (loosely based on 'Romeo and Juliet') starred Nicolas Cage as a punk who falls in love with a stereotypical Valley girl, much to the disgust and dismay of her snobby friends. The film was a decent hit at the box office, and 30 years later it has become a romantic-comedy classic, treasured for generations. Join us as we revisit the cast of 'Valley Girl' and see what they're up to now.

'The Frozen Ground' Trailer: Nicolas Cage Hunts a Serial Killer

by Jacob Hall June 7, 2013 @ 7:25 PM
The true crime serial killer movie is about as played out as any genre in movie history, but nothing seems to be stopping 'em. The latest "ripped from the headlines" movie is 'The Frozen Ground,' which casts everyone's favorite lunatic Nicolas Cage as an Alaskan state trooper hunting down a serial killer played by John Cusack. Vanessa Hudgens is also there, but who cares about Vanessa Hudgens when you have a Cage and a Cusack? Anyway, the first trailer for the film has arrived.

'Expendables 3' Adding Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich to the Cast

by Jacob Hall May 31, 2013 @ 11:52 AM
The 'Expendables' franchise is built entirely on the idea that watching a whole bunch of movie stars (from former legends to C-listers) kill a whole bunch of people will make for a good time at the movies. Franchise star and chief creative voice Sylvester Stallone has promised that 'The Expendables 3' will up the ante in every way and the news that Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are in talks to join the cast has us believing him.

'The Croods' Review

by Jordan Hoffman March 20, 2013 @ 1:40 PM
DreamWorks Animation
Much like the characters within the film, my attitude toward 'The Croods' evolved.
The first 25 minutes or so are awful. The uninteresting, darn-near-ugly character designs, dumb jokes and frenetic, boisterous action in lieu of ingenuity or thrills in 'The Croods'' first act is a chore. I was stunned to check my watch and realize how much left I had in the movie. “Man,” I thought to myself, “it's amazing how wretched some of these kids' films can be compared to something like 'Rango.'”
Then the bottom fell out (in a surprisingly literal way) and 'The Croods' transformed. “Man,” I thought to myself, “this is the weirdest, most adventuresome and gorgeous kids' film I've seen since 'Rango.'”

'Ghost Rider 3' Is a No for Nicolas Cage, Says He's Done With the Franchise Altogether

by Nick Romano March 12, 2013 @ 12:54 PM
'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' was arguably one of the biggest mistakes of 2012 with poor reviews coming from numerous outlets. (Just take a look at its score on Rotten Tomatoes.) So when will it be time to retire the flaming skull? For Nicolas Cage, at least, that time is now.
