JOE Trailer: Restraint Keeps Nicolas Cage Alive - For Now

Peter Martin, Managing Editor

A terrific new trailer for David Gordon Green's Joe features Nicolas Cage in restrained mode as a quiet man who is finally moved to action.

About the titular character, our own Ryland Aldrich described him thusly: "An ex-con with a troubled past and a penchant for making people want to hurt him, Joe is trying to turn things around in his life. But Joe's life just doesn't seem to be cooperating with these new plans."

(You can read Ryland's entire review from the Toronto International Film Festival right here.)

The film also stars Tye Sheridan, who was excellent in Jeff Nichols' Mud. The trailer does a good job in setting up the premise and establishing a tense mood.

Joe will be released in France on April 30. Meanwhile, those of us stuck in the U.S. still await word of when we can see it.

Around the Internet:

    "The good guy who is forced to become violent" was already done 100 times, but I don't care because I usually enjoy these kind of movies. This trailer looks fine, and I am always happy to see Cage around.

    Restrained Nicholas Cage is like a Ferrari in the slow lane. Glad to see by the end of the trailer he's punching people in the face and sneering angrily.
