New Poster For Bad Lieutenant
Cage and Mendes call New Orleans

04 September 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips

Empire is about to make your weekend before it has even started, because there is a brand new poster online for movie mouthful Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans!

Cage is said Bad Lieutenant, a druggie detective in love with a prostitute (Mendes), who reigns over battered post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans.

We know it is hard to contain the excitement for Werner Herzog's coked-up cop drama, starring Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, and Alvin 'X to the Z Xzibit' Joiner, but hold it in, because the film isn't out until November 20.

But to satisfy your need for a Port Of Call, check out the brand new poster from the movie below - or read our Damo's wise words from the first screening of the movie at the Venice Film Festival right this way.

Will he jerk off like Harvey, though?
That alone would be worth the price of a ticket. Judging by the frown, he's thinking about it. Very hard. More

RE: Bollocks!
I re watched The Mist last night (Appreciated it far more on the second viewing), and at the start, after Thomas Jane's character's painted Clint Eastwood poster has been destroyed in the storm, he says something like ''They don't have to wait for me to paint another one, all they have to do is a piss poor photoshop job, y'know, two big ole floating heads''...... Guess what poster instantly popped into my head. More

Cage looks like an old woman and Mendes looks like Maeby from Arrested Development.

is this a remake of the original Abel Ferrara movie or a sequel?
The original BAD LIEUTENANT was a dark story of drug abuse and nun rape, all wrapped in a subplot regarding redemption. Harvey Kietel was outstanding ( wasn't keen on seeing his junk though) So is this a remake or a sequel? Why not call it BAD WIG, Cage is a good actor, however it's time he just shaved his head, everyone knows its a wig he is wearing. More

it looks like a good fim, but they've totally ruined it with the extended title. i'm not a fan of colons in titles, and this one sounds awful. the exclamation mark at the end cheapens the whole title and thus the film. More

Poor Nic
Poor Nic gets so much stick when his movies are, ya' know, 'alright' (ish). I'll go see this hopeing to see his funny running that he does. I wonder if he'll get his knob out like Harvey did in the original? More

Cagey Comment
When was the last time a poster for a Nicolas Cage film made anyone's weekend??? It would have been a long time ago now. Cage is on autopilot these days, phoning in performances with minimal energy. The one good thing about this is that Werner Herzog is no hack and might, just might, be able to come up with something here. Cautiiously optimistic. More

Is this a remake or sequel to Abel Ferrara's classic starring Harvey Keitel? I do like Cage, but I'm not sure he can live up to Keitels performance... More

DROP THE FACES, GIVE US THAT COOL STUFF AT THE BOTTOM!
This could be an AMAZING poster, if those heads weren't floating at the top. Why is it that no one makes classic-looking film posters anymore. Cage leaning against that car is the coolest he's looked in years (And anyone at Movie-Con would agree with me that one scene in Kick-Ass is enough to buy back most of his credibility!), why do we need an unhelpful reminder of the Ghost Rider poster stealing focus? More

Poster art suggests yer average straight to video thriller but judgement is still reserved. They should drop the Port of call business though as it makes it sound like CSI. More

I'm having a real hard time believing Cage can make a decent movie any more (Herzog's presence is giving a glimmer of hope)...and afraid to say the bog standard poster does nothing to improve prospects. 2 hours of Cage in a bad wig hamming it up with nervous ticks and fast talking. More
