Who knew stealing the Declaration of Independence could be fun? Not me until I saw this film! "National Treasure" was definitely one of Cage's more normal (read: not maniacal) roles. The actor stars as a historian obsessed with finding treasure from the Founding Fathers. Last May, producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed that a third film is in development!
If you're in the mood for a dark romantic drama, you've come to the right place. Cage plays a self-destructive man with nothing to live for who decides to drive to Las Vegas and drink himself to death; he ends up finding complicated love with a prostitute he almost runs over (Elisabeth Shue). Cage won a Golden Globe Award and an Oscar for this film!
No, not Dwayne Johnson. What happens when Michael Bay meets Nicolas Cage? You get "The Rock": an action thriller with Cage and Sean Connery. The former stars as the FBI's top chemical weapons specialist, and there are threats of mass destruction, lives at stake, etc. etc.
Normal family farm life quickly turns into unspeakable horror when an otherworldly meteor lands in the family's front yard and *changes* the farm and anyone in contact with the land. Cage plays father Nathan Gardner in this Lovecraftian horror film.
Truly a deranged film, "Vampire's Kiss" is a box office bomb-turned-cult-movie. Believe it or not, there's a scene where Cage literally just shouts out the alphabet. If you want to watch a movie where the plot is dedicated to *checks notes* a man losing his mind and thinking he's a vampire, look no further. There hasn't been anything quite like it since.
Perhaps one of Cage's better-known films, "The Wicker Man" teaches us to avoid sinister female neo-pagans and deadly island rituals. Yes, this is the one with the bees. This film has plenty of screaming.
Listen, as bad and cheesy as this movie is, there's only one Johnny Blaze in my book. If you're looking for some quality Cage content of him angsty and screaming, you can find a decent amount in "Ghost Rider" (but maybe try "The Wicker Man" first?). Rumor has it that Marvel's looking to bring this character into the MCU.
Nicolas Cage and John Travolta as mortal enemies, switching faces? We love to see it. I'm personally just entertained with the idea of Cage acting like Travolta and Travolta acting like Cage.
If you're into revenge films, "Mandy" is as vengeful as they come. The 2018 action-horror, neon-colored movie revolves around Cage hell-bent on killing a hippie cult. The "Cage rage" is real here -- this is the actor at his bloodiest, or, as The Guardian so aptly put it, "a chainsaw-wielding lumberjack hunting the gang who invaded his home."
You know Hannibal the Cannibal, but what about Cyrus the Virus? John Malkovich plays the villain here, taking over a prison transport plane with dangerous inmates. It's Cage's job to either join them (tempting?) or stop them (and return home to his family). You know what's really criminal here? Cage's hair. Kidding. Bring! Back! Those! Locks! I'm sure we've all seen that gif of a luscious-locked Cage basking in the sun. Well, it's from this film.
