Nicolas Cage stars in the trailer for Outcast

Nic Cage sports interesting hair and waves a sword in the trailer for his latest action opus, Outcast...

You could quite easily play Nic Cage Action Bingo with the trailer for his latest film, Outcast. Weird hairdo? Check. A pot-boiling plot with lots of blood and fire? Check. Cage getting to utter memorable lines in a slightly odd way as only he can? That's Nic Cage Action Bingo!

Outcasts sees Cage play an outlaw who joins Hayden Christensen in a fight against bad guys in medieval China. How did Cage and former the former Skywalker get to China in the first place? The trailer doesn't tell us. Instead, there's lots of swordplay and angry staring, like us when we get the electricity bill through the door.

We'll go out on a limb and predict that this won't be a Cage film in the vein of his acclaimed ones like Adaptation or Leaving Las Vegas. But it'll probably be a lot of fun - at the very least, the fights should be great, since director Nick Powell used to be a stunt man in such films as The Last Samurai and The Bourne Identity.

Outcast doesn't have a UK date yet, but it's out on the 27th February 2015 in the US. When this latest Cage cut gets a Blighty release date, we'll be sure to pass it along.
