Exclusive New Bad Lieutenant Poster
Meet Nic Cage, Eva Mendes and a lizard

25 March 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb  

submit to reddit

Nicolas Cage is one seriously Bad Lieutenant – and though we don’t have the film itself to prove it, we have the poster, and we have it all exclusive-like.

As posters go, it’s approximately a kabillion times better than the previous poster, which suffered horrendously from poster-based floaty head syndrome (check it out for yourself here for proof), whereas this one shows that menacing scowl that the resurgent Nick Cage is famous for in this amazingly bonkers Werner Herzog number.

For anyone not aware of this soon to be released Cage-fest, it’s the story of a New Orleans cop (a Lieutenant, no less) who injures his back rescuing someone during Hurricane Katrina.
 
Over the course of recuperating from his injury, he uses and becomes addicted to his pain medication, moving onto cocaine, heroin, crack and marijuana. We told you he was a bad lieutenant. Like, a really bad one.
 
We don’t want to give anything else away, as it’s truly a film like no other, but look at the fact that there’s a lizard on the poster. Intriguing, no? Our lips are sealed. Until you read the review, of course, but let’s ignore that for now.
 
The Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call - New Orleans is out in cinemas on May 21.

Bad Leftenant: The English Years
Cage and Herzog are two eccentrics who are as perfect for each other as Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, so it should be interesting to say the least. Didn't know Ebert rating it so highly, will definitely check this out. More
