West's Stolen receives U.S. trailer
Nicolas Cage just keeps going, even when he's up against the police and his former partners in crime, I'm talking about the film Stolen here not his real life, and the film now has a second trailer to sell you on the character and the story.
It's interesting to watch the two together and count just how many more cuts there are on the western version compared to the Japanese. Apart from that it does look rather good and Cage rather reserved.
Will Montgomery (Nicolas Cage) is a master thief who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he's ready to leave his criminal past behind and try to rebuild a relationship with his estranged daughter Allison. The FBI and his old cohorts believe that he hid the loot from the last heist 8 years ago, $10 Million in Bonds. To get his hands on it, his old partner Vincent (Josh Lucas) kidnaps Allison and demands the entire $ 10 Million as ransom. Keeping her in the soundproofed trunk of a Taxi Cab, he's able to stay mobile amongst the throngs of taxis out during Mardi Gras day making it nearly impossible to find.
Montgomery only has one day to get the $10 Million ransom but much to the disbelief of the FBI on his trail and Vincent, Will doesn't actually have it. Instead, he must trust his instincts and his old partner in crime, the beautiful, sexy and smart Riley (Malin Ackerman), to do one more clever heist to get his daughter back alive before it's too late.
The previous trailer was a Japanese release which you can see on Filmstalker but this new trailer is a sharper, quicker and much more heavily edited trailer with a slick voice over to boot, just in case you didn't realise what the characters were telling you.
There's nothing too surprising in the story and Josh Lucas does look a little silly in some shots as the wide-eyed, long haired maniac, still it doesn't look terrible does it and Nicolas Cage does look like he's good in the role, no wild over acting in this part. Plus you must remember who's directing it, Simon West, and that might remind you of Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic (Filmstalker review) and the just released The Expendables II.
