New trailer for BAR LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL NEW ORLEANS.

I have been a tad harsh on Nicholas Cage over the years, but then Mr. Cage has subjected me to some seriously horrid films.

So when I heard he was starring in a remake of the Harvey Keitel flick BAD LIEUTENTANT, I had very little faith in it.

But, the full trailer actually looks decent. Might Mr. Cage be heading back to the early days of his career where his films were interesting and even good??

Terence McDonagh (Nicolas Cage), a homicide detective with the New Orleans Police Department, is promoted to Lieutenant after he saves a prisoner from drowning in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. However, during his heroic act, he severely injures his back and is put on prescription pain medication. A year later, Terence – struggling with his addictions to sex, Vicodin and cocaine – finds himself in the battle to bring down drug dealer Big Fate, who is suspected of massacring an entire family of African immigrants.
