Maika Monroe and Nicolas Cage star in summer horror movie Longlegs, and the first trailer for the film has landed. Here…
After appearing in six different films on screen in 2023, Dream Scenario the best of them, Nicolas Cage has been slacking. Currently for 2024, we’ll be seeing him just three times on the big screen. The first of them? That’s going to be Longlegs, which isn’t, tragically, a Nicolas Cage film involving a massive spider.
Instead? It’s a horror film from the mind of Osgood Perkins (who apparently played young Norman Bates in Psycho II – which makes sense, given he’s the son of Anthony Perkins). Perkins writes and directs the film, which co-stars the terrific Maika Monroe.
Longlegs isn’t due out until the summer – we’ve got a July release date for it in the US, with no date confirmed for the UK yet – but a trailer has popped up, along with a synopsis. The way we see it, it’d be rude not to pass this information on to you.
Let’s start with the trailer for the film, which looks like this…
That synopsis? Well, it reads as follows…
Lee Harker, a new FBI agent, has been assigned to an unsolved case of a serial killer. As the investigation becomes more complicated with occult evidence uncovered, Harker realizes a personal link to the killer and must act quickly to prevent another family murder
Monroe is the FBI agent in question. Nicolas Cage? Ah, glad you asked. The mighty man himself will be taking on the role of the serial killer in question.
Neon is distributing the film in the US, and it was shot around this time last year. Alicia Witt and Blair Underwood flesh out the cast, with July 12th 2024 the confirmed US release date.
We’ll keep you posted if and when we hear anything about a UK distributor and a UK release date. Until then, you’ll have to make do with either the trailer, or better informed movie websites.—
