You are Will Montgomery, a master thief who gets double-crossed on a heist gone awry. After eight years, you’re released from prison, only to discover that your disgruntled former partner has kidnapped your daughter in a taxicab and is holding her for ransom to get his cut of the original robbery’s haul. What do you do? Since you’re played by Nicolas Cage, you shout a lot, run a lot and punch people while looking like someone poisoned your dog. Check out the trailer for Stolen below, available thanks to the good people at Yahoo.
Yes, it really does look like a big ol' Cage action thriller, with Malin Akerman as the love interest and Josh Lucas channelling Kurt Cobain for his stringy blond look. Despite Expendables 2 director Simon West calling the shots, this one was completed (and called Medallion) back in 2011 and has sat waiting for release ever since, which is rarely a good sign.
It’s set to arrive in US cinemas on September 14, with little fanfare besides this promo. There’s no word on a UK release yet.
