Nicolas Cage praises Chinese cinema

Aug 31 2013, 7:00am CDT | by IANS

Venice, Aug 31 (IANS) Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage has praised Chinese cinema for being "good".

Venice, Aug 31 — Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage has praised Chinese cinema for being "good".

"I am attracted by Chinese cinema because it is good," Cage said Friday at the Venice Film Festival on the Lido island in Italy.

He added that Chinese cinema has many "great actors such as Liang Chaowei and Zhou Runfa", reports Xinhua.

"I have a great relation with China and I am proud of that," said the actor, who has visited China several times.

"There is a great flow in the conversation that I have with the people there, they are always very warm to me and I am very thankful," he added.

The 49-year-old said that he is "going to be in China in about three weeks to play in a Chinese financed film called 'Outcast'". It is an action adventure movie, which will also star Hayden Christensen.

"I am looking forward to starting this, as I have not made a movie with China yet but I was told that the experience is really a good one, and they have fantastic food on the set all day," he said with a smile.

In the Venice Film Festival, Cage is playing a hard-drinker in his latest film, David Gordon Green's brutal American South drama "Joe", premiering in competition.

For the title role, Cage said that he focused on finding the truth in the performance trying to make the character come to life.

"I read the book, which allowed me to find the character and align myself with the director's vision," he added.

Cage, who called "Joe", "one of the most memorable" films he has worked on in his over three-decade-old career, also said in a news conference that he has no intention to retire any time soon.

Aug 23 2014 3:04pm CDT | Source: Collider

Available now on VOD and DVD is writer/director Joshua Zeman's urban legend documentary Killer Legends. For those who've seen Zeman's solid 2009 effort Cropsey, Killer Legends is a continuation of the filmmaker's interest not just in urban legends but in the real stories behind the tales. Rather than focus on one subject like its predecessor, though, Legends is made up of four vignettes each devoted to a true crime that helped shape some of our most widely recognized legends ...

Aug 19 2014 7:48am CDT | Source: movie pilot

If there's one actor you'd never want to bet against, it's Denzel Washington. From Glory through to Flight, he's made a good living out of playing characters that you just can't help but believe in, no matter what the circumstances. Hell, even when he plays a straight up villain, you still have to work pretty hard not to want him to end up on top.And, from the looks of it, his latest movie - The Equalizer - is set to very much continu ...

I’m reasonably certain if this whole rapture thing is real and it comes for us, I’ll be stuck on planet Earth. Which is not an entirely bad thing, if you really think about it. I mean, less people means more space and opportunities for me to do, you know, stuff, right? (See, I’m a glass half full kinda guy. So sue me.) Anyhoos. Check out the latest trailer and two handfuls of new images for Nicolas Cage’s “Left Beh ...

Sean Bean took part in a Reddit AMA last night, in which he revealed a rather ridiculous anecdote involved Nicolas Cage and dropped a potentially massive hint regarding Jon Snow's parentage. When asked about his time filming National Treasure with Cage, he spoke about the time the two (shockingly) decided to have a few bevvies before deciding to play pool, with rather upsetting consequences.

‘Left Behind’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage Fails to Get Raptured

Aug 5 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

If you’ve been thinking that HBO’s The Leftovers could do with a little more Nicolas Cage, boy are you in luck. Left Behind stars Cage as pilot Rayford Steele, who fails to make the cut when the Rapture hits the Earth. Cue the Apocalypse. This actually the second cinematic adaptation of the book by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The last one was released in 2000 as a straight-to-DVD film starring Kirk Cameron. At least Cage is a step up from that. ...
