Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen fight Chinese warlords in Outcast

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.

Cool Videos: Watch the evolution of film over 136 years in just 3 minutes

Very often we forget about the films of the past. Sure, we talk about STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES and other films from the last thirty to forty years, but you delve further back than that and you likely run into people who have seen less and less films from history. Cinema has existed since as far back as 1878, but just how many of us have a good knowledge of silent films, world cinema,...

Despite two sequel series that did not live up to the original (ROOTS...
