You might have had a pretty busy weekend, what with getting ready for the Oscars, making a guest appearance on “General Hospital,” and whatever else you have going on. What you probably DIDN’T do this weekend was actually go to the movies, since the numbers this weekend were low enough to be in “kind of feel sorry for the people in the movie” territory.

The first place slot was mercilessly seized in its third week by the “holy shit that’s a real movie” movie Gnomeo and Juliet with $14.2 million (that’s 728.4 million in gnome dollars). Second place went to Hall Pass, which opened this weekend to a total of $13.4 million. The weekend’s REAL disappointment, though, was Drive Angry 3D, which, despite being a batshit crazy movie starring Nicolas Cage, only managed to collect $5.1 million. Sorry, Nicolas Cage. Maybe next time.

You can get a more complete run-down of the weekend’s disappointment over at Box Office Mojo.

It’s hard to say exactly what role Charlotte Ross will play in Drive Angry 3D, but we do know she’ll tangle with Nic Cage in a cheap motel room at one point or another. Ross got her start in the late 1980s with a role on “Days of Our Lives” and hasn’t strayed too far from television since then. She’s done bit parts on “Married With Children“, “Birdland”, “ER”, and “Frasier” among other notable series. In 2003 a role on “NYPD Blue” that called for her to show her bare buttocks on television caused a stir among censorship fogies, resulting in FCC fines of $27,500 for each of the 52 ABC stations that broadcast the contentious episode. How risque.

A word from Charlotte: “I’d rather go naked than wear fur.”

The post Review: Drive Angry 3D appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Drive Angry is sleazy, vulgar and crass. The execution is seriously misguided, but I like the idea of it enough to carry me through. I’m like that, I’d rather see a cool idea fail than see something typical succeed technically. Offensive is better than mediocre.

Milton (Nicolas Cage) blasts some bad guys on the road in graphically 3D shots, so immediately you know it’s that kind of movie. Cage owns the screen with his Elvis-y swagger and hints of his Peggy Sue Got Married voice. When he sips coffee in between kisses he stole from a stranger, that’s action hero cool. He gets a wound to his eye, just wears sunglasses over it.

However, I would say that even in an exploitation movie, beating up a naked woman and throwing her onto the street is not okay. Even when the person delivering the beating is also a woman, that’s not okay. I’m all for outrageous, but you can just sense the tone is malicious there. And making the female lead a tough girl doesn’t make it feminist. It’s still just a male fantasy of the tough cookie.

Milton hooks up with the tough cookie Piper (Amber Heard), another waitress from that vulgar diner who’s leaving her cheating fiancé in his car. (The mistress is the recipient of above beating.) The Accountant (William Fichtner) is following Milton and you quickly get the hint that neither Milton nor the Accountant are from an earthly plane.

Between Milton and The Accountant you have spiritual characters talking shop. The film may not be mature enough to give them anything worthwhile to do, but I like the idea of having them in the movie. The script does a good job of discussing their business vaguely, and both actors bring a certain unreality to their body movements.

I was offended on behalf of Michael Davis when the film threw in a sex scene shootout, but it’ll be okay. Anyone who Googles “naked sex gunfight” will find the scene from Shoot ‘Em Up and see it’s way better. The difference is Davis clearly loves women and protects her in that scene. Drive Angry director Patrick Lussier uses her as a prop.

Drive Angry make Paul Verhoeven look like a feminist. There are lots more naked women but the film manages to make nudity ugly with the cultists jiggling in the background and the lover grinding on a fully clothed Milton. All the dialogue is tits, dick, balls in a gross, trailer park-y tone. Even the soundtrack sings about pussy in “Fuck the Pain Away.”

The pursuit is simple. Jonah King (Billy Burke) killed Milton’s daughter and wants to sacrifice his baby granddaughter to Satan. Yet the plot can’t handle it. The Accountant enlists two cops for absolutely no reason and they serve no purpose in the story. The action provides no fast-paced thrills. It’s all slow motion violence for 3D. Cage sells the gun poses but there’s no flow.

Just keep telling yourself, “Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage, Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage.” It’s like a whole movie of the bear suit scene from Wicker Man.

Because people didn’t snicker too loudly when Conan the Barbarian 3D went into production, the film’s producers are gearing up to remake Red Sonja with a director already on board.

After the false start a few years back that only resulted in a Rose McGowan with sexy red hair poster, it looks like the project is back up. Producer Avi Lerner has revealed that Simon West will direct the project, and shared his hopes that Amber Heard will hold a prop sword toward the heavens while screaming triumphant very soon.

“We’re talking to a few girls for the role of Sonja but we just finished a movie called  Drive Angry with Amber Heard, and I want to see her. She’s my favourite for the role. Amber is the new Red Sonja… but she doesn’t know it yet! When you write it she’ll get the shock of her life! She’ll call me and say ‘How dare you talk to Empire before you talk to me?!’”

Ah. Publicly shaming young actresses into chain mail bikinis. A Hollywood institution since the Silent Era. (Empire)

Not content with just featuring walking Internet meme Nicholas Cage in their film, the producers of Drive Angry have found a new way to get your attention, should you be one of those people that has found a way to tune out all things Cage-related.

That new way is a “motion poster,” which acts as an embeddable video/image hybrid. It’s probably not anything you’d want to look at longer than you would a traditional static poster, but seeing as how it’s new, it should be good for some novelty value initially. So if you’re one of those people that complains that a Amber Heard‘s hair isn’t moving in a poster, or flames aren’t flickering, then this is your Woodstock. Just make sure to close the window when you’re done taking in all the motion-glory, as the repetitive sounds of flames burning is pretty damn annoying.

It’s safe to say that this is gimmicky enough to only be a viable marketing ploy for action or kids movies, but don’t rule out this being used to show some girl taking her top off should those American Pie movies ever emerge from straight-to-DVD hell. (Vulture)

In real life, really hot chicks ALWAYS inexplicably hang around crazy, blood-covered maniacs. They’re like sugar to them. That’s why Amber Heard‘s casting in Drive Angry should surprise no one. Check out this batch of stills from the film that focus on Amber Heard‘s performance as the attractive girl who hangs out with the crazy dude over twice her age. Looks pretty convincing. I’m convinced! (JoBlo)

Normally I wouldn’t be a proponent of watching Nicolas Cage bang anything but this clip from Drive Angry 3D has some redeeming factors.

For one, Nic Cage remains clothed. So that’s a relief. Why? Because he never disrobes before a gunfight. Note: all the best gunfighters don’t disrobe before their gunfights. That’s like Gunfighting 101.

The gunfight itself isn’t all that spectacular and pales compared to the gunfighting while humping scene in Shoot ‘Em Up. What does make this clip awesome however is the fact that Nic Cage’s character smokes a cigar and chugs whiskey while in the act. That’s baller right there. Also, boobs. The boobs help make this clip awesome too. (via Horror Yearbook)

Awesome Interview: Nicolas Cage http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/awesome-interview-nicolas-cage/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/awesome-interview-nicolas-cage/#comments Tue, 30 Nov 2010 23:14:55 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=9491 Nic Cage gets weird with us in discussing Season of the Witch, Drive Angry, wigs, dressing as a bear, and licking the audience. On second thought, pretty standard Cage stuff.

The post Awesome Interview: Nicolas Cage appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Here’s an early Christmas present, for me at least. Nicolas Cage has Season of the Witch opening in January 7th, so the time to do press for it is now, before the media gets swamped with holiday stories. I got a phone call this morning with that distinct, smooth cadence on the other line. When I thanked him for calling, he replied, “You too, thank you for inviting me to the interview.”

My invitation was contingent on getting weird though, and Cage is always game for the weird. It’s time to get weird with the master of weird. In Season of the Witch, Cage plays Behman, a 14th century knight assigned to guard a suspected witch. Behman has the long hair that would make Cameron Poe in Con Air proud, and we can hope for some moments that would belong in the “Nicolas Cage Losing His Sh*t” YouTube mashup.

Screen Junkies: You once shared with me the Hunter S. Thompson quote: “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” How did you apply that to Season of the Witch?

Nicolas Cage: Well, in that case it’s probably weird in the true sense of the word, meaning W-Y-R-D, not W-E-I-R-D. The interesting thing about the word “weird” is it’s almost a holy word in that it was an ancient Celtic Druid way of life meaning literally to transform or to turn. That was the etymology of the word weird as we know it today because when you call somebody weird, it’s usually because they’re not acting like themselves or they’re turning into something else.

SJ: What’s been your favorite weird role to play?

NC: Yeah, there’s been a few now. It has been a while that I’ve been making movies now. I would have to say that in recent times, Bad Lieutenant was certainly a weird role, but weird more because he was contorted with chemicals both physically and mentally. I loved Peter Loew from Vampire’s Kiss. He was really weird because he went into the world of thinking he was a vampire.

SJ: I love Vampire’s Kiss too. What would Peter Loew think of the Twilight vampires?

NC: I don’t know. [Laughs] I don’t know how to answer that. I think Peter Loew’s interests were more Kafka-esque.

SJ: What’s a weird role you’ve seen someone else play that you would have liked to do?

NC: Well, I had a lot of admiration for Daniel Day-Lewis’s performance in Gangs of New York where he played The Butcher. I thought that was a weird role that was really well done.

SJ: Does the witchcraft of this movie have anything in common with the rituals in The Wicker Man?

NC: The Wicker Man was more of a kind of black comedy of sorts, dealing with Neil Labute’s exploration of the relationships between men and women. It was just more of an extreme absurdist comedy dealing with that as opposed to any real kind of witchcraft if you will.

SJ: Is that why you put on a bear suit and beat up women?

NC: [Laughs] Yeah, clearly you don’t wear a bear suit and do something that off the wall and not know it’s ridiculous.

SJ: I’ve been reading Outlawvern.com and he’s coined the phrase “mega acting” with regard to your work in films like Bad Lieutenant and Face/Off. The idea is it’s not overacting, because it’s intentionally extreme. Do you feel that’s accurate?

NC: Yeah, I think that makes sense. I often refer to it as outsid the box, as opposed to over the top. The two things mean the same thing on one hand but one sort of celebrates the idea of breaking free and going into other forms of expression, whether they’re abstract or extreme or as this friend of yours calls mega acting. The other sort of implies you’re not being truthful to the part, but see, I don’t know how you measure something like that because life can be extreme and life can be mega. I wouldn’t do that to somebody in another art form. Not to compare myself to someone like Francis Bacon but just as a point of explanation, I wouldn’t say, “Hey, you can’t paint a screaming pope like that because a screaming pope doesn’t look like that naturally.”

SJ: There’s also that YouTube clip of “Nicolas Cage Losing His Sh*t.” Are you happy that people are celebrating those moments?

NC: Oh yeah. That’s very exciting. I was happy to see that this person found it and was going back to some of the really early work like Zandalee and even the movie I made with my brother Deadfall. It was very exciting to see that be reawakened.

SJ: Yet you won the Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas, which was a more real, tragic performance.

NC: Yeah, but there were some pretty extreme outbursts in that movie too but I don’t think they made it in that piece.

SJ: I love the long hair for Behman. I actually grew mine out one year and went as Cameron Poe for Halloween. It makes me wonder, do you have a collection of awesome wigs you pick from for each role?

NC: It’s amazing because sometimes people think I’m wearing a wig when I’m not wearing a wig and then sometimes they think I’m not wearing a wig when I am wearing a wig. You’d have to go through it carefully to pick which one is which. For example, Drive Angry I’m not wearing a wig. Behman and Sorcerer’s Apprentice I was wearing a wig. Even in Deadfall, if you look at that sequence, I even put a nose attachment on so the nose went out and then up, when I’m saying, “Vive la France,” that dialogue I was improvising.

SJ: Do you ever keep it when the movie’s done, whether it’s a wig or a real look you’ve developed?

NC: No, I don’t. I don’t wear wigs in my own life or in public so I have no use for them. I did keep the look on Drive Angry because I had dyed my hair blonde and I didn’t have any time to dye it back before the next movie which was Trespass. Once I got back from my press tour for Sorcerer’s where I had the Drive Angry blonde hair, I went back to my normal color.

SJ: Have you seen the College Humor clip about your agent?

NC: No, that one I haven’t seen.

SJ: Would we laugh if we saw the real scripts that passed your desk?

NC: You know, the truth is I’m very selective about what I do. Even now, if you look at the characters I’m playing, I’m trying to cultivate a body of work that celebrates people like Christopher Lee or Vincent Price. I’m wanting to go into a kind of horror and supernatural world with the acting because it gives me something more abstract to do. I haven’t seen that particular site that you’re talking about but I don’t think you would laugh. The reality is you’ll see pretty much an eclectic mix of characters but I don’t think anything that extreme in terms of [comedy]. Well, I haven’t seen the site so I can’t really comment on it.

SJ: With Drive Angry, did 3D give you a new tool for your acting?

NC: Yeah, I wanted to find ways to go into the audience. I even tried to get my tongue into the audience but I don’t know if that made it into the movie. That would’ve been an extreme moment but I’m not sure that it’s still in there or not. Yeah, trying to find ways to dance with the 3D cameras so that I could get into the fourth row of the audience or more.

SJ: What kind of performance is Trespass?

NC: That’s going to be another character and definitely one that is not like myself. He’s a frustrated husband. I think you might even say he’s a confused person about his tastes in romance. He’s somebody that’s really up against a wall.

SJ: What are you looking forward to about playing Ghost Rider again?

NC: Well, I’m currently doing that as we speak. I just got back from Romania and I’m going back tomorrow night to keep working in Bucharest on that and I’m very excited about the possibilities that we’re coming up with on that movie.

So there you have it, folks. Nic Cage was trying to get his tongue into the audience. Simply amazing. Be sure to check Cage out in Season of the Witch January 7th, and see if you can tell if he’s wearing a wig or not.

How you gonna mess with Nic Cage‘s hair like that?!

Summit has dropped the trailer for Drive Angry 3D. Patrick Lussier directs Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, William Fichtner, and David Morse in what looks like another Ghost Rider with a car standing in for a chopper.

Cage plays a guy who breaks out of hell (what? how? what?) to get revenge against the cult that killed his daughter and took her baby. William Fichtner is the Devil‘s right-hand-man sent to bring him back. I gotta say, it’s perfect casting with Fichtner. There’s something always twitchy with that guy. I could totally see him doing Satan’s bidding.

Drive Angry 3D crashes into theaters February 11, 2011.
