I approach Nicholas Cage movies the way I approach a ham sandwich — I expect it to taste good, but I don’t expect it to fill me up. Likewise with Cage’s upcoming “National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets”, his follow-up to the 2004 surprise hit “National Treasures” co-starring Diane Kruger. Everyone, including director Jon Turteltaub, is back for the sequel, which promises to be just as good, but not great, as the original. The poster (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below) is now online. Since Cage’s face isn’t shown on the poster, I’m assuming this is just the teaser version.
Treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin Gates looks to discover the truth behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, by uncovering the mystery within the 18 pages missing from assassin John Wilkes Booth’s diary.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, Ed Harris, Helen Mirren, Justin Bartha, and directed by Jon Turteltaub.
