I Am Posting The Trailer For 'Rage' Simply Because It Has Nic Cage In It... You Got A Problem With That?


Nic Cage may be one of my favorite actors, but I can't deny that he does tend to get himself into some shitty movies. But the fact that he continues to produce multiple films a year at least leaves the possibility that he may surprise you in one of these roles eventually. 'Rage' might just be that movie this year... even if it looks to be a straight American set remake of 'Taken'. Cage stars as an ex con trying to get past his terrible past. He is just trying to live his life after doing his time, and he wants no part of the streets. But it seems the streets still want a piece of him, or at least his family. So they kidnap his teen daughter played by Aubrey Peeples (the actress playing Jem in the upcoming Jem & The Holograms movie) and start on a path of drawing him out of retirement to pay for something he had done long ago. Add in Danny Glover as an overprotective friend cop and we got ourselves a stew going! I liked the way Cage worked with Amber Heard in Drive Angry (a good, fun solid movie despite a ridiculous premise), so maybe Cage could generate some screen chemistry with Peeples and make this movie work. I'm in... how about you? The film hits theaters July 11th. Check out the trailer after the jump...
