A terrific new trailer for David Gordon Green's Joe features Nicolas Cage in restrained mode as a quiet man who is finally moved to action.
About the titular character, our own Ryland Aldrich described him thusly: "An ex-con with a troubled past and a penchant for making people want to hurt him, Joe is trying to turn things around in his life. But Joe's life just doesn't seem to be cooperating with these new plans."
(You can read Ryland's entire review from the Toronto International Film Festival right here.)
The film also stars Tye Sheridan, who was excellent in Jeff Nichols' Mud. The trailer does a good job in setting up the premise and establishing a tense mood.
Joe will be released in France on April 30. Meanwhile, those of us stuck in the U.S. still await word of when we can see it.
