Another day, another trailer for a movie Nicolas Cage made over a weekend. Yesterday brought us "Stolen," Cage's "Taken"-in-a-taxi-cab movie, and today brings "Frozen Ground," with a rough/early spot leaking to the web, promising Vanessa Hudgens stripping and lots of glowering from Cage and his co-star John Cusack.

Another day, another trailer for a movie Nicolas Cage made over a weekend. Yesterday brought us "Stolen," Cage's "Taken"-in-a-taxi-cab movie, and today brings "Frozen Ground," with a rough/early spot leaking to the web, promising Vanessa Hudgens stripping and lots of glowering from Cage and his co-star John Cusack.

Based on real-life events, "Frozen Ground" follows the 1980s investigation of serial killer Robert Hansen, who stalked or killed between 17 and 21 young women. Cage stars as the Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe, who tries to bring down Hansen (Cusack) and finally gets the opportunity after a seventeen-year-old (Hudgens) escapes from the killer and provides key information. Granted, this looks like an early cut of the trailer (and hence, it will probably be ripped down pretty fast), and so music and other elements aren't final (even the production company logo is temporary), but the overall vibe is a picture that seems like your pretty run-of-the-mill, direct-to-video serial killer flick, with opportunity enough for both Cage and Cusack to chew some scenery. Meanwhile, between this and "Spring Breakers," Hudgens is really aching to shed her wholesome Disney image by showing lots of skin.

No release date yet, but Lionsgate is on board to distribute, and we presume "Frozen Ground" will be arriving soon if promo material is starting to come together. Watch below. [CinemaTeaser]
