Nicolas Cage’s Road-Revenge Thriller Drive Angry Teaser Lives Up To Its Title

By  · Published on July 24th, 2010

Seems like its been days since Nicolas Cage has been seen on the big screen doesn’t it? Well don’t worry Cageholics, if The Sorcerer’s Apprentice didn’t quite satiate your need you only have to wait seven months to see him drop the magic hat in favor of some serious ass kicking.

Drive Angry is directed by Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) and stars Cage as a man whose daughter is killed by some very bad people. They may or may not be satanists too, and as if that wasn’t bad enough the bastards also kidnap Cage’s grandchild. Presumably this infuriates Cage’s character and forces him to get behind the wheel of a car to seek his revenge. The film also stars the lovely Amber Heard and the even lovelier William Fichtner. Lussier has experience with 3D from his minor horror hit, and he ‘s continued that interest by shooting Drive Angry in 3D. So if nothing else, respect the man and the film for actually choosing that route instead of simply converting it the movie in post production.

Check out this new teaser for thirty seconds of explosions, gunfire, and Cagey witticisms…

Definitely some angry driving going on here.

Drive Angry opens February 11th of next year.
