WATCH: Nicholas Cage fights the devil in trailer for new movie Mandy

June 27th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Woah… and we thought Nicholas Cage had achieved maximum cool with Mum and Dad, but it seems he has another level yet.

A trailer has dropped for his new movie, Mandy, which sees him going against a satanic cult who kill his wife. Sort of tapping into the 1975 Peter Fonda classic Race with the Devil.

Mandy is directed by Panos Cosmatos, the mind behind Beyond the Black Rainbow (we haven’t seen it, but having just watched the trailer I’ll be seeking it out as soon as possible).

Mandy looks dark, bizarre, scary and all the other wonderful things you’d want. Plus it has Ace going full Cage. Perfection.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Ned Dennehy, Olwen Fouéré with Richard Brake and Bill Duke
Directed by Panos Cosmatos
Written by Panos Cosmatos and Aaron Stewart-Ahn
Music by Jóhann Jóhannsson

Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
