Nicolas Cage vs. John Cusack in First Trailer for ‘Arsenal’
Lionsgate Premiere has released the first trailer for Arsenal, the generic-looking action-thriller that is sure to delight Nicolas Cage fans.
Co-starring John Cusack, Johnathon Schaech and Adrian Grenier, the film sees Cage playing a crime lord who comes between two devoted brothers. Or something.
Directed by Steven C. Miller from the script by Jason Mosberg, the flick will play in select theaters and On-Demand on January 6, 2017. Check out the first official trailer and poster below.
Cage’s character looks exactly like the one in the 1993 thriller Deadfall.
A powerful action thriller, ARSENAL tells the intertwining stories of the Lindel brothers, Mikey (Johnathon Schaech) and JP (Adrian Grenier), who had only each other to rely on growing up. As adults, JP found success as the owner of a construction company, while Mikey became a small-time mobster, mired in a life of petty crime.
When Mikey is kidnapped and held for a ransom by ruthless crime boss Eddie King (Nicolas Cage), JP turns to the brothers’ old pal Sal (John Cusack), a plain clothes detective for help. In order to rescue his brother, JP must risk everything and unleash his vengeance against King’s relentless army of gangsters.
