New Poster, Trailer for Bangkok Dangerous Remake

14 Comments

Apparently people still flock to the theaters to see a movie just because Nicolas Cage is in it. Or at least that seems to be the premise behind his new poster design for the Pang Brothers’ “Bangkok Dangerous”, which is a Hollywood remake of their own 1999 film of the same name. (Yup, they remade their own movie. Bitch about that, Asian film purists!) Here’s a new poster for said remake, featuring a very prominent look at Cage’s face, just in case, you know, you don’t know what he looks like, or something. Plus, a Spanish trailer that surfaced a while back. The tagline for the film: “One man. One bullet. One shot.”

A cold-blooded hit man heads to Bangkok to pull off four jobs, and winds up falling in love with a local girl and bonding with his errand boy.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Steve Baldocchi, Chris Heebink, James Wearing Smith, Charlie Young, and directed by Oxide Pang and Danny Pang.

The trailer is in Spanish, but from what I can gather, they’ve changed the storyline up a bit. The original had the hitman as a deaf-mute who lived a solitary, bare-bones existence. Cage’s hitman in the remake seems to be a globe-trotting assassin, and I can’t figure out if he’s also deaf or mute or neither.

Update

Replaced the Spanish trailer with an English, domestic version:

    I haven’t seen the original but…It looks..really cool?… Could this movie be so cool it could restore Cage to his fromer glory? Could Cage be so bad ass in it he could actually make the Da Vinci code hair work? Inquiring minds wanna know!

    It looks somewhat generic. (Hitman is betrayed by client; the hunter becomes the hunted, etc.) The original was very, well, original. Deaf-mute hitman is pretty much used by everyone, then he falls in love. Great stuff.

    Cage needs a hit!

    The original was okay tho nothing special I don’t think, but considering the same people are doing the remake why bother changing the storyline?
