The trailer for Stolen has arrived, a fast paced action thriller set during Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Despite the unfair statements made by some that this is too similar to Taken, I disagree as the plot itself is different and the film shouldn't get an unfair deal because of that. But hey, that's Hollywood for you. Fans love them when they're popular, kick 'em in the teeth when they're down and need you most...moving on.
Check out the Stolen movie trailer below and read more about the film under that. This joins the recent images and the poster we added from the film several days ago.
Nicolas Cage and Malin Akerman star in Stolen from director Simon West, working together with Cage after the successful Con Air. In the film, Will Montgommery (Cage) is a master thief who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he’s ready to leave his criminal past behind and try to rebuild a relationship with his estranged daughter Allison. The FBI and his old cohorts believe that he hid the loot from the last heist 8 years ago, $10 Million in Bonds. To get his hands on it, his old partner Vincent kidnaps Allison and demands the entire $ 10 Million as ransom. Keeping her in the soundproofed trunk of a Taxi Cab, he’s able to stay mobile amongst the throngs of taxis out during Mardi Gras day making it nearly impossible to find. Montgomery only has one day to get the $10 Million ransom but much to the disbelief of the FBI on his trail and Vincent, Will doesn’t actually have it. Instead, he must trust his instincts and his old partner in crime, the beautiful, sexy and smart Riley to do one more, clever heist to get his daughter back alive before it's too late.
Stolen opens via Millennium Entertainment on September 14th, 2012 with a cast also including Danny Huston, M.C. Gainey, Sami Gayle, Mark Valley and Josh Lucas
