Do you love Raising Arizona? Then you're going to love this! Nicolas Cage pays homage to the Coen Brothers classic in his latest movie Dog Eat Dog. Today, we have a first look at the movie. From RLJ Entertainment comes the hilarious and action-packed trailer along with the official poster.
Legendary filmmaker Paul Schrader directs this "sordid and engaging crime drama" (The Hollywood Reporter). Dog Eat Dog stars Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage. The pair previously worked together on the much maligned drama Dying of the Light back in 2014. Paul Schrader also wrote the screenplay for Nicolas Cage's acclaimed EMT drama Bringing Out the Dead, which was directed by Martin Scorsese.
Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon) joins Nicolas Cage in Dog Eat Dog. The pair first worked together in David Lynch's cult hit Wild at Heart. Though the pair hasn't been seen on screen together since 1990, Nicolas Cage did produce Willem Dafoe's critically acclaimed 2001 biopic Shadow of the Vampire, which looked at the filming of the 1922 classic Nosferatu.
In Dog Eat Dog, Ex-cons Troy (Cage), Mad Dog (Dafoe) and Diesel (Christopher Matthew Cook) are hired by an eccentric mob boss to kidnap a baby for a large ransom. When the abduction goes awry, the trio find themselves on the run from the mob and the cops. Vowing to stay out of prison at all costs, getting away with the crime is literally a matter of life and death.

The movie opens in Los Angeles and New York on November 4 before expanding across the country, becoming available on VOD and Digital HD November 11. Take a look and hold onto your sit. Nicolas Cage is once again a babynapper!
