I tell ya, I don’t know where Nicolas Cage finds the time to do all these movies. It seems like the guy has 3-4 movies coming out every year. Then again, I guess when you’re as notoriously hit and miss as he seems to be, you need the quantity (rather than quality) to make sure you can claim a hit or two per couple of years. “Drive Angry’s” got the 3D gimmick going for it; in fact, it’s so gimmicky, it’s even got the “3D” officially in its title. Talk about dating yourself in a couple of years! Anyways, first images from the flick below.
In the newest 3D action-adventure from the director of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, DRIVE ANGRY stars Nicolas Cage as Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out of hell for one last chance at redemption. Intent on stopping a vicious cult who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice her baby beneath a full moon.
He’s joined by Piper (Amber Heard) – a young, sexy waitress who liberates her ex-boyfriend’s cherry-red muscle car in order to help Milton. Now, the two of them are hot on the trail of the deadly leader of the cult, Jonah King (Billy Burke), who believes it is his destiny to use the baby to unleash hell on earth.
But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton’s problems. The police are after him too. And worse, an enigmatic killer known only as “The Accountant” – who has been sent by the Devil to retrieve Milton and deliver him back to hell. With wicked cunning and hypnotic savagery, the Accountant will relentlessly pursue Milton at high speed across the country until his mission is accomplished.
Fueled by high octane and pure rage, Milton must use his anger to go beyond all human limits to avenge his daughter’s murder, before his last chance at redemption is revoked.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, Billy Burke, Katy Mixon, David Morse, William Fichtner, Wanetah Walmsley, Christa Campbell, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Bryan Massey, Charlotte Ross, and directed by Patrick Lussier.
