Nicolas Cage and horror fans are feasting this summer as Cage headlines two horror films. Here’s the trailer for Arcadian. 

Here at Film Stories, we’re big fans of Nicolas Cage. We’re very much looking forward to the summer, then, because we’re getting not one, but two new films starring the man himself.

The first one is Arcadian, which comes to us courtesy of Vertigo Releasing. Cage plays a father of two sons, trying his best to protect them from a mysterious evil in an post-apocalyptic world. 

Take a look at the new Arcadian trailer:

We’re getting strong It Comes At Night vibes here, with a hint of 28 Days Later and The Last Of Us when it comes to the setting. 

Jaeden Martell and Maxwell join Cage in Arcadian as his two sons while Sadie Soverall plays Charlotte, a girl one of the sons has a crush on. The film marks the second collaboration between director Ben Brewer and Cage, who starred in the director’s previous feature, The Trust

Brewer is also responsible for Arcadian’s visual effects and also worked on mind-bending (and Oscar-winning) Everything Everywhere All At Once, so we’re confident that Arcadian will look pretty spectacular – although the trailer reveals very little of the mysterious creatures roaming the lands. 

Arcadian, previously called Sand & Stones, had its world premiere in March at the SXSW festival in Texas. 

Here’s the official synopsis: In a near future, normal life on Earth has been decimated. Paul (Nicolas Cage) and his two sons, Thomas and Joseph, have been living a half-life – tranquility by day and torment by night. Every night, after the sun sets, they face the unrelenting attacks of a mysterious and violent evil. One day, when Thomas doesn’t return home before sundown, Paul must leave the safety of their fortified farm to find him. A nightmarish battle ensues that forces the family to execute a desperate plan to survive.

Of course, Arcadian isn’t the only Nicolas Cage horror we’re getting this summer. Longlegs, from director Osgood Perkins, is also on the way, and will be released in US cinemas this July, with UK release date still pending.

Arcadian is in UK cinemas from 14th June.
