Nicolas Cage Encounters Destructive Alien In ‘Color Out of Space’ Trailer

Nicolas Cage is having a busy year as he’s been seen in A Score to Settle, Running with the Devil, Primal, and Kill Chain. Don’t expect him to slow down in 2020, as Color Out of Space is on the horizon.

Nathan Gardner (Cage) is a family man whose life takes a turn for the worse after a meteorite lands on his farm. Gardner and his family attempt to battle this mutant organism which ultimately takes over their minds and bodies, ultimately infusing a rush of color and tragedy into their lives.

What makes Color Out of Space super interesting is it’s directed by Richard Stanley, the filmmaker behind Dust Devil and Hardware. Stanley was also replaced by John Frankenheimer for 1996’s troubled production The Island of Dr. Moreau, and one wonders what would have happened to Stanley’s career if he actually directed that film (he penned the flick’s screenplay).

Color Out of Space, co-starring Joely Richardson and based on an H.P. Lovecraft short story, hits theaters January 24, 2020. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Director Nick Powell Has A “Primal” Connection With Nicolas Cage

Primal centers on Frank Walsh (Nicolas Cage) a ruthless hunter of exotic and endangered animals who sells them to the highest bidder. When he captures a white jaguar, he expects a huge payday, but the ship he has boarded houses a captured assassin (Kevin Durand) who is ready to create some havoc.

The project marks the second film for Nicolas Cage and director Nick Powell (they previously worked together on 2014’s Outcast). “Nic is kind of an iconic figure,” said Powell. “Whenever Nic is on screen, there is something that draws you to him. He’s got that sort of in a way the old Hollywood leading man feel to him. Even when you see him in real life, Nic Cage is bigger than life even when you’re sitting with him and chatting with him there’s something about him that feels like you’re in a movie when you’re talking. He’s just got an aura about him.”

Being impressed by a movie star is a natural thing, but the key for a movie to work out mainly lies in a successful collaboration between a filmmaker and his or her actors. Click on the media bar to hear Powell discuss what made his partnership with Cage a fruitful one (in fact, they are discussing another project down the road):

Primal, co-starring Michael Imperioli and Famke Janssen, hits theaters and On Demand on November 8.

“My favorite thing about this movie is that it kind of tells you in a way that you can pick and choose who you want your family to be to some extent,” said Hildebrand. “And you can kind of make your family if you feel like you need that support. I hope that idea, the idea of family, resonates with people.”
