A theatrical trailer for Werner Herzog‘s gritty drama, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans has been released. The film stars Nicolas Cage as the title character, a morally challenged lawman, who while trying to solve a murder exposes his own personal demons which include drug addiction, theft, and gambling. After watching this trailer you can easily see why the film has the word bad in front of the title.
Check out the trailer…
The original Bad Lieutenant was released in 1992, starred Harvey Keitel as the lead character, and was directed by Abel Ferrar. In this take on the film, both Herzog and Cage put their signatures on the story to make it their own. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not particularly interested in seeing this movie because I wasn’t a fan of the original. I will admit that this trailer is a lot better than the unofficial footage they released a few months back. This one actually has a professional look to it.
