Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen fight Chinese warlords in Outcast

08.21.2014by:

I am not sure anything makes sense anymore after seeing the trailer for OUTCAST. First off, it stars Anakin Skywalker himself, Hayden Christensen, and Nicolas Cage as warriors during the Crusades. Secondly, it somehow appears that Christensen has surpassed Cage to gain top billing in the film. Thirdly, the movie appears to have the warrior heroes coming to the aid of Chinese royalty in what could be the most insane and all over the place film I have seen in a long time.

OUTCAST was announced back in 2013 and is headed towards a release in China later this year before it bows in America early in 2015. But, I cannot get past just how bizarre this movie is. I know that I should not be shocked by anything Nicolas Cage makes anymore, but OUTCAST may be the pinnacle of weird choices. Cage seems to be rocking a crazy hairdo yet again and goes wildly from comedic delivery of his lines to dead serious, all the while going in and out of what seems to be an Irish accent.

When the heir of the Imperial throne becomes the target of assassination by his despised older brother, the young prince's only hope is the protection of his sister, and the reluctant aid of war-weary Crusader, Arken (Hayden Christensen), who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of the legendary Crusader-turned-bandit, Gallain (Nicolas Cage), to return the prince to his rightful place on the throne.

OUTCAST does seem to have the best production values in a Nicolas Cage movie in a very long time, but it still looks pretty damn bad. Plus, when Hayden Christensen takes the lead over an Academy Award winner, you know you have hit rock bottom. Here's hoping OUTCAST is more fun that the trailer leads you to believe.

OUTCAST will debut domestically on February 27, 2015.

The director obviously stole the look and vibe from the character (One Eye) in the movie "Valhalla Rising".

Come on Nic!! But I guess you have to pay the bills...

It pains me to see Nicolas Cage in these roles. He is a tremendously talented actor, as we all know. How many DTV movies has he and John Cusack done the last two years? Everyday I see a new trailer with one of these guys in it, and the next day it's on Netflix. Hell, he and Cusack even did one together, which was decent actually.

Irish Popeye in China! so there! Cage does these flicks for one reason, MONEY! and possibly the fact he hates not working or is running away from his personal demons or want's a vacation. Hell if someone came up to you and said want to go to China, or Reno, or Australia, etc for 2 weeks paid vacation and all you have to do is act poorly, you'd be, where do I sign up?! But just think of all the precious Cage moments this will bring to all of us, on video, eventually.

It's just very disappointing to see Cage do these type of garbage films knowing that he is so much more capable of much more quality material.

I mean how do you do Matchstick Men, Weather Man, Family Man, Bad Lieutenant, and Joe to this crap??? I just don't understand.

Would love to see Tarantino, Nolan, Scorsese, O'Russell take a chance on him and give him another great role.

This is probably going to be terrible, but I am sure I will end up renting it online at some point.

Season of the Witch - Asian Edition. Hayden Christensen is feeling the full brunt of the consequences of playing Anakin as awfully as he did.

I love it when Nic Cage laughs. He should be contractually obligated to laugh once in every movie he makes.

I was really hoping for cage to look like the Fu Manchu character from the fake Werewolf of the SS trailer in Grindhouse when I read that title.

Awesome

This has all the makings of a pre-Tropic Thunder 2 fake trailer.
