There’s a brand new Nicolas Cage film popping out subsequent month and the trailer doesn’t disappoint. Per Leisure Weekly, “Nicolas Cage is John Wick however with a Pig,” however seeing as I’ve by no means watched any of the John Wick films all I can say with certainty is that Nic Cage mumble-breathes the phrase “who has my pig” on this trailer.
From what I collect from the trailer, Cage is a recluse truffle hunter within the Pacific Northwest, dwelling on his personal within the woods after one thing unhealthy occurs in his life as an expert chef. “I bear in mind each meal I ever cooked,” he mumble-breathes. “I bear in mind each particular person I ever served.

Truffle-related crimes are literally actual and fairly scary — shout out to Ryan Jacob’s wonderful guide The Truffle Underground — and this one is ~private~ as a result of it’s Nic Cage’s pig, you understand? This pig appears to be the one firm Cage has out within the woods, and, as Cage places it, “any individual stole her.” He’s received to seek out her, even when it means braving the scary, imply world of effective eating in [checks notes] Portland, Oregon.

Different eating places anticipated to be featured within the movie, no less than if the press notes’ “particular thanks” part is any indication, embrace Le Pigeon, Floor Kontrol, and Skyline Tavern.
As Cage’s character insists within the trailer, “We don’t get plenty of issues to essentially care about.” We will care about Pig although, which will probably be in theaters July 16:
