“Take it easy with my cat!” This is the opening line shouted by Nicolas Cage in the trailer for his latest film, Primal. Cage plays Frank Walsh, a collector of exotic animals that just captured a rare white jaguar. He loads the big cat onto a cargo ship and appears all set to sail home to a big payday. But then he’s forced to take on a political assassin being extradited to the US, and yep, you guessed it. The assassin escapes, unleashes the cat on the boat, and all hell breaks loose.
You’re damn right I can’t wait to see this. It’s like Con Air, but on a boat with wild animals. Unfortunately, I have to wait until November 8th, because that’s when it hits select theaters and On Demand.
Starring alongside Cage is Famke Janssen, Kevin Durand, LaMonica Garrett and Michael Imperioli. Primal was directed by Nick Powell.
