Nic Cage is stupid awesome in Drive Angry trailer and poster


15th October 2010

He has crazy eyes, lank hair and has returned from hell to drive dangerously. That's all you need to know.

For years, Nic Cage has always been the most ridiculous, over-the-top actor in movies, but now it seems he has found a film to match his own stupendous sensibilities. Drive Angry sees the Cagester dying and languishing in Hell, but when his surviving daughter gets murdered and her child kidnapped by a cult, he finds away to escape Satan's fiery pit and unleashes bloody vengeance, all with the help of a '69 Dodge Charger (thanks, Google).

If that's not enough for you, this whole extraordinary spectacle will be brought to you in eye-flinching 3D! Oh wait, you don't care? Ok, well how about the fact that William Fichtner seems to play a dry, up-to-earth employee of the devil sent to retrieve Lord Nicholas of Cage and send him back to the torturous afterlife he came from? A little better, but still not sold? Ok, hmm, let's see - what else is there? Ah yes...'Amber Heard in denim hotpants'. Hello? Hello?!

Despite the credit "From the director of My Bloody Valentine", and the fact that the whole film looks like one of Rodriguez's tongue-in-cheek grindhouse spoofs but played completely seriously, it stars Nicolas Cage so I'm already there. Plus, y'know, 'Amber Heard in denim hotpants'. What could go wrong?
