Army of One Trailer

"He's obsessed." TWC-Dimension has debuted a trailer for a comedy called Army of One, hopefully one of the last Middle East comedies we'll see for a while (there have been a few recently and none of them have turned out that great). In this film, Nicolas Cage stars as an ex-con who receives a vision from God, played by Russell Brand, telling him to capture Osama Bin Laden. He purchases a sword and heads to Pakistan to complete his mission. This is actually loosely based on a crazy true story (why am I not surprised?) written about in GQ. The full comedic cast includes Wendi McLendon-Covey, Rainn Wilson, Denis O'Hare, Paul Scheer and Will Sasso. This looks pretty boring, and even though it's fun to laugh at Nicolas Cage nowadays, there doesn't even seem to be much to laugh at in this. Maybe a few will enjoy it, but who knows.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Larry Charles' Army of One, originally via Entertainment Weekly:

Army of One Poster

Gary Faulkner (Cage) is an ex-con, unemployed handyman, and modern day Don Quixote who receives a vision from God (Brand) telling him to capture Osama Bin Laden. Armed with only a single sword purchased from a home-shopping network, Gary travels to Pakistan to complete his mission. While on his quest, Gary encounters old friends back home in Colorado, the new friends he makes in Pakistan, the enemies he makes at the CIA – and even God and Osama themselves. Wendi McLendon-Covey, Rainn Wilson, and Paul Scheer also star in this hilarious tale of patriotism and one man’s quest for justice. Army of One is directed by filmmaker Larry Charles, of the comedies Borat, Religulous, Brüno, The Dictator and "The Comedians" series on FX. The screenplay is by Scott Rothman & Rajiv Joseph. TWC-Dimension will release Army of One direct-to-VOD+DVD starting on November 4th later this fall. Anyone interested?

Sequel will be Bin Ladin of the Dead. Zombin Ladin will take down the USA with his armiy of the dead talibans.

Just the fact that he's not actually playing Nicolas Cage makes me want to see it.

Finally something interesting from him. This is how I see a typical patriot. Oh man, this is going to be fun ...

This looks AMAZING! I swear I knew a guy who looked exactly the same as this character and claimed he knew where Bin Laden was holed up and claimed to be working with the FBI. (He also lived in an RV and was diabetic) Unfortunately...not the same name....unless it was changed for the movie?...TOO WEIRD
