Today we have an international trailer for the upcoming "Joe" drama, starring Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life). The new movie is directed by David Gordon Green (The Sitter, Pineapple Express) and based on a novel by Larry Brown. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: 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.
Wow. I'm really interested in this.
That kid did a really good job in Mud.
I'm always defending Nic Cage. No denying that he's put out a bunch of sh*t.
For every 5 bad movies he does 1 good one, and he does A LOT of movies, so therefore he does have a handful of really good films.
And David Gordon Greene directing?
I don't know about this one, but I'm extremely interested.
The trailer imo looked really good.
I won't ask how you found that so quickly but yes. I remember thinking he was temporarily drugged out there but seeing it again I'm wrong. His mind is simply that f*cked up all the time. There should be a college course based on the study of his interviews.

This seems like it could harken back to Green's earlier work like All the Real Girls and Undertow. And coming off Prince Avalanche which was fantastic, in sure this is going to e just as good.

DESPITE ALL MY RAGE I AM STILL JUST NICOLAS CAGE

Cage looks seriously dialed in in that picture. Might be due for a good movie

Cage also said that he read the novel as well so he could understand the character and his world even better. This does look like a solid film and I really liked Undertow.
