    I always wait for a trailer to come out in Quicktime HD.

    Is this even the real thing because it’s not working and it’s labeled “trailer 2”?

    What did you think of the trailer?

    Working fine for me. Yeah, it’s the real trailer. And it’s just…silly.

    Well, I give everyone involved points for chutzpah, if nothing else. And I love that Werner Herzog won’t be pinned down.

    That aside, what the hell?

    Wait a minute, so in this version the guy turns to drugs in order to relieve back pain, which in turn leads him down the path of darkness? That’s pretty stupid.

    I’m sure Cage & Herzog will make it interesting at least, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to have some severe script flaws. I mean it’s by some journeyman TV writer (and co-creator of Cop Rock!) with no film credits. When was the last time Herzog directed someone else’s script anyway? Has he ever?

    Looks interesting. I figured Cage was done with interesting films.

    A comeback role for Cage, perhaps?

    I’m no prude Kris, but Red Band trailers on the front page should have some type of warning before clicking

    Casey, I’m almost with you. As of now, my feelings for Cage are of extreme a aggravation with him. Ugh. I haven’t seen the original, so I’m not trying to argue the whole “remakes suck” angle, it’s just that this look truly awful. Ugh again.

    “You don’t have a lucky crack pipe?” will be this year’s Nicolas Cage wearing a bear suit and punching and old woman in the face.

    Kyle: It didn’t even occur to me that it is red band.

    Looks like fun and perhaps a ride back up for Cage.

    I’ve only seen 2 of the 17 films Cage has put out since the turn of the decade and this ain’t gonna turn that stat around.

    This looks like another venue for Cage to show off his flamboyant skills in over-acting. I kept getting flashbacks of “Faceoff”. I hope this works out for him and Herzog. On a side note, Cage has GOT to fire his barber.
