Nicolas Cage terrorizes Joel Kinnaman in the trailer for Sympathy for the Devil, a thriller reaching theatres next month
RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has acquired the North America, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand distribution rights to the psychological thriller Sympathy for the Devil, and will be giving the film a theatrical release on July 28th. With that date less than two months away, a trailer for the film has arrived – and you can watch it in the embed above!
Starring Nicolas Cage (The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent) and Joel Kinnaman (The Suicide Squad), Sympathy for the Devil was directed by Yuval Adler (The Operative) from a screenplay by Luke Paradise (Lost on a Mountain in Maine). The story follows “The Driver” (Kinnaman), who finds himself in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse after being forced to drive a mysterious man, “The Passenger” (Cage). As their white-knuckle ride progresses, it becomes clear that not everything is as it seems.
Here’s another synopsis: After being forced to drive a mysterious passenger at gunpoint, a man finds himself in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse where it becomes clear that not everything is at it seems.
Capstone Global and Hammerstone Studios produced Sympathy for the Devil alongside Cage’s company Saturn Films. Cage receives a producing credit with Allan Ungar, Stuart Manashil, David Haring, and Hammerstone’s Alex Lebovici. Capstone’s Christian Mercuri serves as an executive producer with Marc Goldberg, David Sullivan, Jason Soto, Tim Moore, Courtney Chenn, and Waylen Lin.
RLJE Films’ Chief Acquisitions Officer Mark Ward had this to say about the distribution deal: “This is our eighth collaboration with Nicolas Cage, which includes Mandy – a critically-acclaimed film that has a huge cult following. Once again, he doesn’t disappoint. In this film, Cage and Joel Kinnaman bring to life a suspenseful tale on screen that will keep audiences guessing.“
Sympathy for the Devil looks like a good time to me, and it seems like fans who enjoy seeing Nicolas Cage in over-the-top “rage Cage” mode are going to have a lot of fun watching this movie.
