Joe Trailer: Nicolas Cage Plays a Person, a Person Named Joe

Right off the bat, we should note, that this appears to be a real movie, not the sort of stuff Nicolas Cage is most often associated with these days. Directed by David Gordon Green and based on a Larry Brown novel, Joe tells the story of an ex-con who starts to look after a young drifter kid who is abused by his caretaker. The film received a good reception at the Venice and Toronto film festivals last year, but still doesn't have a U.S. release date. Until then, watch the trailer below and see if you can recognize Cage when he has a beard and is not constantly shouting.
