Nicolas Cage & Hayden Christensen in Epically Bad 'Outcast' Trailer

Outcast

A filmmaker can have all the production value in the world, but it's not worth a damn if your actors think they're starring in a high school play. That's exactly what seems to be happening in this trailer for Outcast from Arclight Films. In the film Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen are thrown back into 12th century China, which is already a hilarious premise in itself, as ex-Crusades warriors who team up to help the children of a deposed Chinese Emperor battle their murderous uncle. Honestly, despite how pretty this film looks, Cage and Christensen make it look laughably bad, especially with whatever accents they're poorly trying to pull off (Cage saying "lad" puts it over the top). But for that reason, it ay be worth seeing. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Nick Powell's Outcast, originally debuted by Deadline:

Ancient China - Princess Lian and her younger brother, Zhao, flee for their lives when their father, the Emperor, is murdered by his ambitious eldest son Shing. Pursued by Shing's black guards, the royal runaways find protection in Arken, a hardened knight seeking redemption from the nightmares of the Crusades as he searches for his former friend and mentor, Gallain, now a notorious bandit on the silk road. The two must put aside their differences and once again fight side by side in an epic and unwinnable battle against Shing and his forces. Stuntman Nick Powell (Resident Evil: Retribution) makes his directorial debut with Outcast, and the film seems to have a release date next year on February 27th, 2015. Anyone in?

I mean, it has faults, but it may be decent not horrible.

Freaking a, I thought we'd moved past a time when it was acceptable to set a live action drama/adventure film in ancient china and still be okay with everyone just speaking english, just sort of with an accent. Or a time when two white guys should be the savior of a non-white nation. But hey, at least Christenson has a really trendy haircut.

After reading a lot of blog reviews for this trailer online, I've come to the conclusion it's impossible for bloggers and some media to be objective when it comes to Nicolas Cage and/or Hayden Christensen. It's become all about the 'snark' and outdoing snarks. That's why I watch trailers and movies without first reading comments. If it's something I think I'll enjoy, I usually do.

Wow he finally got rid of that stupid hair-do he's had since the 70s?!

The whole time I was thinking Hayden's hair-do was out of place. Wrong time period.

Cage:"How old are you? Ten?!" Boy: "14!" Cage: "Hahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!" Cracked me up!!

It must be hard (career wise) to be Hayden Christensen. Everyone's talking about Star Wars episode 7 and how they hope it erases their memories of the (Hayden Christensen) prequels....

He was only in 2 of them and while I extremely enjoy them both I do admit he has cringeworthy moments in Episode 2 but in Episode 3 he seemed to have a little more charisma. He looks awesome in this, only if he had the acting ability and emotion that's seen in this movie when he was in Star Wards. People probably wouldn't complain about him

I for one like Hayden Christensen and think he looks awesome in this but Cage looks absolutely horrid in this. It's like he tried to be a bad actor in this movie from what I see in the trailer

At least Cage is still getting work. I haven't seen Hayden since Jumper (surprised he's not being seen on straight to DVD videos with Tara Reid).

This looks like it will be entertaining for all the wrong reasons.

Hayden Christensen? I thought he quit acting? Guess that Star Wars money ran out.
