The first trailer for the action thriller Stolen has been released. Previously referred to as Medallion, the film reteams Nicolas Cage with his Con Air director Simon West. Cage plays a former master thief who only has a few hours to find his daughter when she is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York taxi cab. Malin Akerman plays Cage’s ex-girlfriend with whom he teams up to find his daughter, while a long-haired Josh Lucas plays the antagonist, Cage’s former partner who’s gone a bit off the deep end. Despite the cheesy “movie trailer man” voice over, the film actually looks like it could be a fun ride. The Taken comparisons can’t be ignored, but under the direction of West Stolen doesn’t seem to be taking itself too seriously. And was that a stuffed animal I saw in Cage’s arms or was I dreaming?
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Danny Huston, Sami Gayle, and M.C. Gainey. Stolen opens on September 14th.

Here’s the synopsis for Stolen:
Will Montgomery is a master thief who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he’s ready to leave his criminal past behind and try to rebuild a relationship with his estranged daughter Allison. The FBI and his old cohorts believe that he hid the loot from the last heist eight years ago, $10 million in bonds. To get his hands on it, his old partner Vincent kidnaps Allison and demands the entire $10 million as ransom. Keeping her in the soundproofed trunk of a taxi cab, he’s able to stay mobile amongst the throngs of taxis out during Mardi Gras, making it nearly impossible to find. Montgomery only has one day to get the $10 million ransom, but much to the disbelief of the FBI on his trail and Vincent, Will doesn’t actually have it. Instead, he must trust his instincts and his old partner in crime, the beautiful, sexy and smart Riley, to do one more clever heist to get his daughter back alive before it’s too late.
