The couple come into contact with a “crazy evil” cult who aim to take over the body and soul of Riseborough’s character, Mandy Bloom. The cult is led by Jeremiah Sand, played by Linus Roache.
The trailer sees Cage craft a mythical-looking weapon, telling Bill Hunt’s character it’s to ‘hunt’ the cult members. Watch the trailer for ‘Mandy’ below.
The film is directed by Panos Cosmatos and premiered at Sundance earlier this year. Cosmatos co-wrote the script along with Aaron Stewart-Ahn, who previously directed Death Cab for Cutie‘s video for ‘I Will Possess Your Heart’.
The ‘Mandy’ soundtrack was created by the late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who’s talents can be heard on the likes of ‘Sicario’ and ‘Arrival’. The film also stars Ned Dennehy, Olwen Fouéré and Richard Brake and will hit cinemas on September 14.
Earlier this year, Cage said that he plans to retire from acting in the near future. “Right now, I’m primarily a film performer and I’m gonna continue doing that for three or four more years, and I’d like to focus more on directing,” he said.
He also revealed that he wasn’t a fan of the Ghost Rider movies, in which he starred in the 2007 original and its 2012 sequel as vigilante Johnny Blaze.
“Ghost Rider was a movie that always should’ve been an R-rated movie,” he said. “David Goyer had a brilliant script which I wanted to do with David, and for whatever reason they just didn’t let us make the movie. Ghost Rider was designed to be a scary superhero with an R-rating and edge, and they just didn’t have it worked out back then.”
