His last role as a crazed and Crooked Cop, in Werner Herzog’s unofficial sequel BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL NEW ORLEANS, arguably gave Nicolas Cage his finest role since LEAVING LAS VEGAS. We life in hope that THE TRUST, which coincidentally sees Cage back in Sin City, can pull ol’ crazy eyes back from the brink…
The new film, written and directed by Alex and Benjamin Brewer, pairs Cage with a resurgent Elijah Wood as two cops investigating a local drug invasion only to stumble upon a mysterious bank Vault hidden Small Grocery Store.
Waters and Stone are two nobody police officers working dull administrative jobs and making extra money selling stolen Civil Service Exams to other officers. When Stone hears a story about a heroin dealer quickly beating his extremely high bail, the two friends set into motion a plan to find the origin of such a large amount of cash. Through diligent police work they follow a trail that leads directly to a custom bank-style vault built into the back room freezer of a small grocery store. They put a plan into motion to rob the vault and split whatever they find inside. But by the time they figure out what the vault contains, it’s already too late to turn back.
Following today’s earlier trailer debut, we now have the new one-sheet for the film co-starring Jerry Lewis, Sky Ferreira, Steven Williams, Kevin Weisman and Christie Beran. It makes its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival next week.
