A new trailer for writer-director Scott Walker’s new thriller The Frozen Ground is now available. The picture stars Nicolas Cage as an Alaskan detective out to catch a serial killer (John Cusack) with the help of one of his recently-escaped would-be victims (Vanessa Hudgens). Yes, Cage plays the detective and Cusack the serial killer … not the other way around, but Hudgens is dancing on a stripper pole in this trailer so what do you want from me?
Also starring Radha Mitchell, Dean Norris and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson as Pimp Clate Johnson (ie Best Name Ever), The Frozen Ground opens August 23rd. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Frozen Ground:
“Frozen Ground” follows Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe (Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bodies of street girls start to add up in Anchorage, fear strikes a chord with the public. Risking his life, Detective Flothe goes on a personal manhunt to find the killer before the next body surfaces. When a seventeen year old escapee reveals key information about the case, Flothe is finally able to trail the killer. But will he catch him in time to save the next victim?
