So your daughter is killed by cultists and your baby granddaughter is taken as a future sacrifice to be killed under the full moon in an attempt to open the gates of Hell and unleash pure evil onto our mortal plain. What do you do? Especially if you're a former criminal currently six feet under and serving an eternal sentence in Satan's realm? Well, if you're Nicolas Cage in 'Drive Angry 3D,' you break out of Hell and go on a cross-country race against time in an awesome motor vehicle to save that baby with the lovely Amber Heard in the passenger seat while Satan's right hand man/demon (played by William Fichtner!) pursues you with every intention sending you back to the afterlife.
Yeah, 'Drive Angry' sounds like just about the best movie ever, really. Yahoo has premiered the new trailer (embedded after the jump) for Patrick Lussier's follow-up to his surprisingly solid 'My Bloody Valentine,' and, like the synopsis, it looks like a grab bag of movie geek goodies. It's like 'Race With the Devil' and 'Constantine' had a drunken bedroom rendezvous and this was their resulting love-child.
Lussier feels like a filmmaker with one foot planted in the present and the other firmly entrenched in the late 1970s. He's slick and modern but conceptually, he's truly old school. Even though this trailer isn't particularly well-edited, it shows off enough crazy coolness to label this as a "Must-See-Right-Now" film.
Seriously...Nicolas Cage in a sports car facing down an immortal, evil William Fichtner? Only people who don't like movies don't want to see that.
Like 'My Bloody Valentine,' 'Drive Angry' was shot with 3D cameras, so expect clean, potentially impressive 3D effects instead of the sensibility-slapping work seen in 'Clash of the Titans' and 'The Last Airbender.' If the poster (which Shock premiered) and trailer are any indication, they're trying very, very hard to make sure you know this.
