So I was surfing over at Ain’t It Cool tonight when I saw one of the most f’d up trailers I’ve seen in years. Forget big budget action flicks or movies with roman numerals following their titles. The trailer for Bad Lieutenant: Port Of New Orleans will leave you with your jaw hanging wide open, and it doesn’t even need a robot.
You may remember the original Bad Lieutenant, which stared Harvey Keitel and his penis as the title character. The 1992 movie is now being reimagined, transfered from New York City to New Orleans and directed by Werner Herzog. All this doesn’t sit well with the original film’s director Abel Ferrar, who was quoted last year as saying “As far as remakes go, … I wish these people die in Hell. I hope they’re all in the same streetcar, and it blows up.”
Maybe Abel will change his mind after watching Nicolas Cage go absolutely crazy in this trailer. This just may make up for Cage’s total shite performance in Knowing (though nothing will make up for his role in Snake Eyes). Check out the trailer for Bad Lieutenant: Port Of New Orlans here and let us know what you think.
