To those of you anxious for a new wild-man Nicolas Cage experience, boy do I have the movie for you! With “Pig” NEON adds yet another intriguing film to its stellar and wildly diverse portfolio. It’s written and directed by Michael Sarnoski and teaches us a valuable lesson. Much like John Wick and his pup, you don’t mess with Nic Cage and his pig. Apparently some people do and Cage isn’t too happy about it.
Unlike John Wick, Cage doesn’t play a lethal head-shotting assassin but a former chef turned truffle-hunting recluse. Someone swipes his pig from his remote cabin in the Oregon wilderness leading him to head into the city to find it. During his search he encounters faces from his past, opening up a number of old wounds. The thickly bearded Cage seems to be the perfect fit and the trailer shows a psychological edge that may make this more than just a story of a man and his lost pig. I’m anxious to give it a look.
“Pig” opens July 16th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
Oh H*LL yes I’m going to see this one. I like seeing Cage uncaged. Have you seen him in Mandy?
I have but for some reason I’m not sure if I ever reviewed it. I need to.
Mandy is one I asked a few people over to watch with me. No way, no how was I watching that one alone. The plot for this one looks really good.
This looks interesting.
I think so too. Anxious to give it a look.
Of course I’m going to see this. Nic Cage rules when he’s just being allowed to do crazy shit
I can’t wait.
I just hope he has a particular set of skills to deploy in order to get back that pig
That would be WONDERFUL! It’s listed as a “drama” so I’m not sure.
Yep gonna have to do this!
Nic Cage saving is porky companion from becoming bacon? Absolutely!

Weird, weird, weird!!!! I ♥ Mr. Cage. He is unapologetically nuts. “That’ll do, pig, that’ll do!”
HaHa! Can’t wait to see how this turns out.
