Watching the first trailer for Simon West‘s (The Expendables 2) Stolen might remind you of a little movie starring Liam Neeson that came out not too long ago called Taken, which just so happens to be getting a sequel that releases in October.
This time around Nicolas Cage is playing the main character, with his Justin Bieber-looking daughter getting abducted by a crazy looking Josh Lucas (sporting long hair and a meth face).
Malin Akerman and Danny Huston appear in the trailer briefly, but I’m just going to assume that this is a one man show. Cage is known for his wacky roles as of late, but this looks more on the lines of the straight-forward approach he took to Seeking Justice.
Still, there’s a shot in the trailer where he’s seen holding a teddy bear while standing in the street with a blank look on his face and that shot alone is why I’ll be seeing this film on opening night.
It looks like an unintentional mess and I’m okay with that. Are you?
Stolen opens on September 14th, 2012.
