One of my most anticipated films for the rest of the year is “Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans”. It’s Werner Herzog directing Nicolas Cage and it looks just as insane as I was hoping it would. You might have seen the unofficial trailer which popped up a couple of months ago, but we now the official theatrical trailer has been released. While this trailer doesn’t make the film look as weird and as insane as the unofficial one, I think this one does a better job of selling the film. You can watch the trailer after the jump.
If you know who Werner Herzog is then you should already be anticipating this film, but for those just tuning in here is the film’s plot synopsis:
“Terence McDonagh (Nicolas Cage), a homicide detective with the New Orleans Police Department, is promoted to Lieutenant after he saves a prisoner from drowning in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. However, during his heroic act, he severely injures his back and is put on prescription pain medication. A year later, Terence – struggling with his addictions to sex, Vicodin and cocaine – finds himself in the battle to bring down drug dealer Big Fate, who is suspected of massacring an entire family of African immigrants. The film also stars Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Coolidge and Fairuza Balk.”
