Trailer for Panos Cosmatos' Totally Nuts 'Mandy' Starring Nicolas Cage
Get ready for this slice of madness. RLJE Films has debuted the official trailer for Mandy, the latest film from filmmaker Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow). You may have heard about this because it's totally nuts and totally crazy and so gnarly and bloody and badass. And there's a chainsaw fight! And freakin' demons from another world! And Nicolas Cage getting pissed off! Oh yes. This film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight category, then went on to play at Directors' Fortnight in Cannes. Mandy stars Nicolas Cage as Red, with Andrea Riseborough as the love of his life. The cast includes Linus Roache, Bill Duke, Richard Brake, Ned Dennehy, and Olwen Fouere. Featuring an amazing score by Jóhann Jóhannsson, one of his last before he passed. I highly recommend this film, as long as you can stand bloody violence, because it's so awesome and unlike anything else out there. Fire it up below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ festival poster) for Panos Cosmatos' Mandy, direct from YouTube:
Somewhere in the primal wilderness near the Shadow Mountains in the year 1983, Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) has fallen deeply for the deceptively charming Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough). However, the life he has made for himself comes crashing down suddenly and horrifyingly, when a vile band of ravaging cultists and supernatural creatures desecrate his idyllic home with vicious fury. A broken man, Red now lives for one thing only—to hunt down these maniacal villains and exact swift vengeance. Mandy is directed by one-of-a-kind Italian-Canadian filmmaker Panos Cosmatos, director of the film Beyond the Black Rainbow previously. The screenplay is written by Panos Cosmatos & Aaron Stewart-Ahn, from a story by Panos Cosmatos. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and it also played in the Directors' Fortnight sidebar at the Cannes Film Festival and at the New Zealand Film Festival. RLJE Films will release Cosmatos' Mandy in select theaters starting on September 14th this fall. Who's down for this?

I'm so glad the director kept Johann's soundtrack and didn't ditch it last minute like that loser Villeneuve did. Bladerunner 2049's score would have been so much better had Villeneuve left it be. Bastard.

A bit strange to comment that when you haven't heard his score for BR2049, no? I understood it was kind of mutual that they went with someone else. Anyways, I'd love to actually hear it. Really curious. Same with his score for mother! Hope they will both be released to the public someday.

I would agree with you to a degree. I feel I can comment since I have heard the score that Villenueve went with. I won't say it was terrible, but one of the more lackluster soundtracks I've heard in a while. I am also aware of the extremely high quality of Johannsson's work. He didn't make a boring record in his entire career. Some misses for sure, but certainly nothing as boring as the new Bladerunner soundtrack. I also posted that with tongue in cheek. I'm sure Villenueve had no idea he was to die so soon after the decision.

Strong retro 80's look and vibe from this. And it's got Bill "You Know You Done Fucked Up, Right?" Duke in it too?. Ok I'm interested.

You must love good old Nic, he's on the loose. And Andrea Riseborough. Oh yeah, I will enjoy this one ...

Hm, Beyond the Black Rainbow wasn't quite my tempo, but this seems at least more exciting. I did like the visuals of BTBR.
