Trailer: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

9 10 2009

The official trailer for Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant is out, and it looks every bit as ridiculous as I hoped it would. This is the role Nicolas Cage was born to play, and may even surpass his performance in the bear punching, women beating classic The Wicker Man. Eric was worried that the tagline made him, “imagine Nicolas Cage walking around his house alone with handcuffs on,” but after this trailer anything is possible. When you’ve made Xzibit look like the normal one, you’ve done your job sir. Bravo.

Video after the jump.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

If after that you haven’t decided to see this movie already, here’s some info:

Plot synopsis– Terence McDonagh (Nicolas Cage), a homicide detective with the New Orleans Police Department, is promoted to Lieutenant after he saves a prisoner from drowning in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. However, during his heroic act, he severely injures his back and is put on prescription pain medication. A year later, Terence – struggling with his addictions to sex, Vicodin and cocaine – finds himself in the battle to bring down drug dealer Big Fate, who is suspected of massacring an entire family of African immigrants. The film also stars Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Coolidge and Fairuza Balk.
