Trailers: ‘Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans’
Posted by Brian on 05/31/2009
This trailer debuted last week, but I’m really too lazy to say anything about it. It just looks bad. Not Ghost Rider bad. Like, Wicker Man bad. Werner Herzog’s sequel to Abel Ferrera’s 1992 crime drama isn’t a remake or a reboot of the original. “It only has a corrupt cop as the central character and that’s about it.” At the 2009 Academy Awards, he claimed to have never seen the original. So then why call it Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans? Why not just call it Port Of Call New Orleans and have it be about a corrupt cop? Work with me, Hollywood.
Well, that’s because Herzog and the film’s star think the film has franchise potential. “You could have more than one Bad Lieutenant,” Cage says. “You could have Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call London next. It could happen and that’s what makes it interesting. I’m not the same cop that Harvey Keitel was. I’m a different cop. I’m a New Orleans cop.”
Here’s the trailer.
Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans stars Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Xzibit, Fairuza Balk, Jennifer Coolidge, Vondie Curtis Hall, Shawn Hatosy, and Brad Dourif.
