An international trailer for “Joe”, Nicolas Cage’s latest – but more so, the one that’s predicted to bring him back to the big leagues, has been released. The pic is directed by “Pineapple Express” helmer David Gordon Green who, like Cage (who is transitioning from crap to class), switches genres here.
A pretty dark-looking film from the looks of it.
In the dirty unruly world of small-town Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Sheridan) – a kid trying to support his family – comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins – to finally be someone’s hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life in this tough, hard-hitting but incredibly moving story.
