The last time we saw Nicolas Cage and director Simon West working together, we got the brilliant OTT actionfest CON AIR. A guilty pleasure if ever there was. Now the duo have collaborated on the race-against-time thriller, STOLEN. The film makes it’s long-awaited theatrical release in the UK on the 22nd March, after an underwhelming straight-to-DVD last year in the US. Much like Cage’s previous effort (SEEKING) JUSTICE.

STOLEN sees Cage as a recently released ex-con, looking to reconnect with his daughter after a skilled life of bank robberies scuppered any real relationship. However, a former partner believes he was double-crossed and looks to gain revenge by kidnapping the teen, leaving Cage’s former crook to devise a plan to save the day.

Check out the UK trailer and quad for the film co-starring Malin Ackerman, Danny Huston and Josh Lucas.


Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
