The Trailer Park: The Weather Man

Image hosted by Photobucket.comI saw the trailer for The Weather Man some months back, don't remember exactly remember when. It seems like forever ago, and I had promptly forgotten about it. Well the release is drawing closer and the hype machine is getting into motion. I have seen the trailer appearing at the theater again. Surprisingly, it looks like it could be fun.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHot on the heels of Lord of War, Nicolas Cage has another film to assault your eyes. This time around he is playing a weather man with a few issues, to say the least. For one thing, he is occasionally accosted by passersby over a bad forecast. On the homefront, things don't look much better. He has a father that he is trying to live up to, and a daughter he is trying to encourage onto a better path.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThe trailer looks pretty good. It features Cage and his deadpan expression playing off of the sligns and arrows that life throws at him. That is, until him and his daughter pick up a bow and make use of those arrows.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comMicahel Caine costars as Cage's father, and he always seems to bring a certain class with him to a project. It was directed by Gore Verbinski, who has done good work in the past, including Mousehunt, The Ring, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. It was written by Steve Conrad.
