Nicolas Cage Goes From West To East In OUTCAST Teaser

Two worlds will collide in the US/China co-production action period piece Outcast

Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen star as exiled Crusaders entering medieval China and protecting Yifei Liu (aka Crystal), as princess Zhao Lian, from her evil brother, played by Andy On. The film marks the directorial debut of Nick Powell, who has extensive experience as a stunt coordinator, with recent credits including Resident Evil: Retribution and The Three Musketeers.
When the heir of the Imperial throne becomes the target of assassination by his despised older brother, the young prince's only hope is the protection of his sister, and the reluctant aid of war-weary Crusader, Arken (Hayden Christensen), who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of the legendary Crusader-turned-bandit, Gallain (Nicolas Cage), to return the prince to his rightful place on the throne.
The release date is September 26 in China and early 2015 in the U.S. You'll find the teaser embedded below.

    another white man save the day movie. chinese woman then offers her snatch as a reward.

    pretty disgusting. and always an evil asian guy.

    hugh jackman's wolverine was totally racist. asian women really need to stop being saved by white men. the asian women are equally guilty for participating in this.

    It's not the actresses fault. It's the executives going for these types of stories. They think people won't identify with a non-white male protagonist, so they'll pass over scripts or force re-writes to include them. It's powerful idiots that think everyone else is dumber than them.

    Actors and actresses can't really pick their roles until they've won big awards and the increased pay-grade linked with the prestige, so they have to take whatever is paying.

  • Art Vandelay

    Is this a China remake of "Season of the Witch"? With Liu Yifei as the witch?

  • Lysander

    Chinese sequel to Kingdom of Heaven? Where Hayden is a blacksmith and Nic Cage is an amnesiac Richard the Lionheart?

  • Howard

    white man medieval swordfighting > kung fu sword

  • Lysander

    Depending on the writer.

  • RK Nagarya

    WOW! This film looks fantastic! Hayden Christensen AND Nicolas Cage, man oh man! I LOVE to see epics like this of other countries and societies! Lei Yiefi is lovely! Can not wait to see this film! WOW!

  • Marcel Samson

    Yes, these things seem to be solely based on funding, I suspect. Same with the flurry of recent Hollywood blockbusters, with (sometimes totally unnecessary) chinese cast members, and parts of the movies shot in China (Transformers, X-Men, Iron Man 3 etc). It's all just to get a paycheck. What I don't understand is why China or Hollywood would need it? They can easily fund it themselves..

    Anyway, I stopped reading after Hayden Christensen. Dude ruins everything I've seen him in. Not even China's sweetheart can get me interested now :P

    EDIT: Man, these stage names some actors take on, haha. Summer!?

    Que bad puns: "Summer is extremely hot!" "Summer always makes me sweaty" "When is Summer coming?" Ok, I'll stop now.

    Sounds like an effing excuse to have white cast members in a movie about medieval China. Can't white people just watch Chinese movies because they are good?

  • Qinlong

    I actually find that kind of cultural crossover pretty interesting for a period epic. I look forward to this and Dragon Blade.
