Nicolas Cage Attempts British Accent in OUTCAST Trailer; Hayden Christensen Co-Stars

by     Posted 120 days ago

In Nicolas Cage‘s long, glorious, and bizarre filmography, Outcast could be more than a minor curiosity.  The directorial debut of Nick Powell (stunt coordinator on Resident Evil: Retribution), Outcast takes place during the Crusades, and Cage plays Gallain, a rebellious outlaw who teams up with Arken (Hayden Christensen, who, to my surprise, is still in the acting business), a young man looking for redemption by protecting the rightful heir to the Chinese throne.  If you needed more proof of China’s growing power in the global film market, look to Outcast.  First Cage; tomorrow: THE WORLD.  But in the meantime, they only have Cage, or, more specifically, Cage trying to do a British accent, which is about as wonderful as you’d expect.

Hit the jump to check out the Outcast trailer.  The film will be released on February 27, 2015, and also stars Yifei Liu, Fernando Chien, Andy On, and Byron Lawson.

    I smell Oscar bait! Wait… no… no I’m mistaken. That smell is of stale honey from the bees from his Oscar stealing scene from the Wicker Man.

      • DEADP00L

        You must be a real ball in real life…

  • J Wilson

    I’ll always make time for Cage… there isn’t one of his movies that’s bad because of his involvement, and I have yet to see one that’s one tenth as insulting as the logic errors in Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel.

    • james

      Yeah………..

    • Steven

      You had me till Dark Knight Rises

      • J Wilson

        To each their own…

    • Ryan Marsh Thunder Fairweather

      Um do you know how Nic Cage is? He was the guy in that shitty Wickerman remake. Yea that was a bad movie…except for when he called everyone Bitches and kicked Ms. Sobieski while wearing a bear costume…they practically carbon copied the superior original…*I am being so so so sarcastic*

      • RiddleThemThis

        You realize that that movie remake was intentionally funny, right? Nicolas Cage has said so himself. I’m not saying it was a good movie, but it was definitely marketed in the wrong way.

      Are you Nic Cage trolling us???

      • J Wilson

        Nope.

    • Ryan Marsh Thunder Fairweather

      But it’s okay to like what you like. A friend’s older brother loved “It’s Pat”. Watched it over and over again…so…stuff like that happens I guess.

    • RiddleThemThis

      I don’t get all this Nicolas Cage hate either, he has been in some bad movies but so have all actors. And I have to agree, a movie has never been bad because of him being in it.

      • Norrtron

        It’s not hate, it’s joy. That’s the feeling I get every time I see him in his steady downward spiral of over acting and just overall terribleness. He’s good for lots of laughs.

    • ThulsaBoom

      My favorite thing about Cage is when he strikes out, it’s as entertaining as when he goes yard.

      Count me in! Looks like a drinking game waiting to happen.

  • Patrick B

    Cage hasn’t had a lot of luck choosing movies that have been huge at the box office. Here he is saddled with a guy who arguably is the worst actor ever on screen, Cage acting with a foreign accent and weird scowl…doesn’t inspire much confidence.

  • awdawd

    I AM the white ghost omg lak

  • Mr. F

    This will be the greatest movie ever. From Nick Cage’s weird accent, to Hayden Christensen’s odd attempt to come off as a serious actor, to that hilarious shot of the sword flying through the air and landing in the ground, and of course the historical inaccuracies. It will only be better if they get Cage’s character to say “I’m a cat, I’m a sexy cat.”

    • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

      I think what’s funniest to me is that Hayden probably thought that the movie had merit because Nicolas Cage would be his co-star.

      “He’s done some great work, I learned a lot from working with him.” – Hayden Christensen in an inevitable press interview

      • Mr. F

        “For example, I didn’t know that you didn’t have to say all of the words in a sentence at the same volume, you alternately scream or whisper the words in the same sentence seemingly at random.”
        But I looked it up, and Hayden signed a deal with a Russian company to star in 11 1.5 million dollar films in the span of three years. This is only the first. And how he is married to Rachel Bilson, I’ll never know.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        So according to Variety it’s:

        “The slate consists of six films with budgets in the $10 million range, plus five microbudget titles ranging around $1.5 million each.”

        And while it’s not clear he’ll act in all of them (though he is helping to produce them all and starring in the first few), it seems like that’s the only option he has considering his last couple films (Vanishing on 7th Street and Takers) were some of the worst things I’ve seen in the last 5 years. All the power to him, but he should really get out of acting altogether.

      • Mr. F

        Ah thanks for clarifying. But yeah he should get out of acting, better than making deals with shady Russian companies.

        And I forgot he was in Takers. That film had such a random cast.

  • MIXTER

    Looks prett good to me! Nicholas Cage is ok when he’s acting good, but is even better when he’s bad acting. As for Hayden, yeah he sucks at acting too, but still, his absence from films has almost made me miss him. I notice he didn’t say too much in the trailer. I’ll see this, the action and setting at least looks gritty and epic.

    Reminds me of some films like Iron-clad, and Black Death, which were low budget but really good films.

    I LOVE bad cage movies, and this looks like it won’t disappoint

  • Stanislavski

    Wow. Looks like Hayden C. finally took some lessons and is learning to act like a man. Good for him. (Pity about that Bieber haircut, though. Love the scruff.) And Nick C., well he’s a legend now. it doesn’t matter whether he, or the movie, is good or not.

  • Steven

    I take it Mr. Goldberg hasn’t bothered to see ‘The Frozen Ground’ or ‘Joe’ and wants to assume Cage only makes dodgy movies nowadays.

      I’m quoted on the poster and the Blu-ray/DVD cover for Joe.

    When I read that Hayden Christensen was in this movie I had to watch the trailer a couple times until I realized who he was playing….he looked very unrecognizable.

  • bmw

    Hayden was actuall pretty good in Shattered Glass, but that is the lone good performance.

    • Vulcan

      He was, and apparenlty he was good in Life as a House, which I never saw, but he was nominated for a Golden Globe and SAG award for it.

      • Your_Mama1

        Which begs to ask the question, is Christensen simply not passionate about acting? Or did he make poor choices? Or can he only do well with the right director? I must admit, I followed his career for years before he basically disappeared. I just saw this last night. We’re both Canadian and I always wished him well. Not everyone can be a massive movie star forever ala Cruise or Smith.

  • Nicolas Cage

    I appeared in this film because it had the elements of a classic Nick Cage film: the actors were paid and they served hot lunch daily. Also, all of the dialogue is either whispered or screamed. Now I must ride onto my next adventure, where I will digitally insert myself in every Star Wars film so that I may finally appear in a film with my father, Indiana Jones.

    • edshrinker

      Thanks for clearing that up, Nic. Here’s to that 1st Oscar!

  • alk

    Not exactly the movie I would expect Anakin Skywalker to announce his return to acting in…I woulda expected him to do something less, cliche and shitty. This doesn’t even look B-level good. Poor Annie.

  • Ryan Marsh Thunder Fairweather

    Cage is now a goofball actor. And that’s not a bad thing. I think there is a lot of room for growth in the sarcastic/bizarre/non-sequitor genre like Snakes on a Plane and Sharknado. I hope to god Con Air 2 in Space is developed. That’s what Cage is made for.

  • Solgazer

    Goddamn that looks really… just awful. Just so awful.

    Who wants to see Nick Cage flip out in a British accent?

  • Migz13

    wow… This looks so bad I think it’s intentional!

  • M kay

    It’s exactly what I wanted in a movie, Nick Cage and Hayden Christensen, I mean both guys are immensely talented actors and have always been top notch ,please tell me Uwe Boll directed this, I would say Oscar at that point.

  • doc

    I hope he doesn’t get sand everywhere getting attacked by the bees.

  • MITIOR

    I don’t think Hayden is a bad actor (he could get better) but he keeps getting this seco d tier movies. His agent sucks

  • lord jim

    The problem with Nic Cage is that people rather pay to watch his terrible movies, than his good ones like “Joe” or “Bad Lieutenant”, so the studios rather produce terrible movies than good ones.It´s Transformers that bring them money and not The Godfather, and the studios are in for the money, and not for the art.At least Cage is always entertaining, while better actors like De Niro sleepwalk through their bad movies.

  • João Paulo

    Hayden Christensen a.k.a Anakin Skywalker now go to China to find his new apprentice? lol ………but now serious the trailer looks good, but sounds like a ‘b’ movie.

    About Hayden, I still waiting for Jumper 2 and for Nicolas Cage he needs to finish National Treasure trilogy.

  • poppincherry

    God awful shit! My dear lord.
