Here we have the poster for Bangkok Dangerous in which we see Nicolas Cage giant head towering over what one imagines is Bangkok. Our man Nic looks distraught, he obviously is carrying a lot on his shoulders and that is taking its toll.
Now, let’s go back a few months.
Here we have Nicolas Cage giant head towering over a city that seems to be in the process of being consumed by flames. In this one our man Nic is fully focused. The look in his eyes is so fierce that there is actually blue light coming out of them. He’s obviously trying to find a way to save the people of the city and nothing will stop him.
Now let’s go a couple more months back.
Here we have Nicolas Cage giant head towering over some generic looking city. It’s also towering over some dude whose head has caught on fire. And over a cool bike. Nic looks mildly enraged. Obviously someone has crossed him and he is ready to kick some butt.
Ok, now let’s do something different. Let’s go a forward a few months.
Here we have Nicolas Cage not so giant head towering over, well, nothing really. This time the head is also connected to a full body, which is unusual. Nicolas Cage looks a little bemused. Obviously he is faced with some inscrutable puzzle and is now working very hard to figure it out.
A little more than one year. Four movies. Four posters. Four different hairstyles. Let it never be said that Nic Cage lacks range.
But honestly? I wouldn’t mind spending some time without having to stare at Nic’s mug in a new poster.
