It occurs to us that some people might be in places (work, baby shower, your own wedding) where they can’t immediately watch the trailer for Nic Cage and Kelsey Grammer’s (seemingly erotic) thriller Grand Isle, so we’ll just answer all your questions here in the post. Yes, Nic Cage does star as a deranged husband seeking to pay a handsome young stranger $25,000 to murder his beautiful wife. Yes, his beautiful wife is simply too sensual and has too much chemistry with said HYS (handsome young stranger) for this to be a clear-cut murder-for-hire movie.
Yes, Kelsey Grammer does, in fact, co-star as the detective tasked with solving a murder (but whose?!), and Nic Cage does absolutely laugh maniacally with blood streaming down his face while gesturing wildly with a gun. If that’s not enough to convince you to watch it, keep in mind that everyone in the film indulges in a thick, syrupy, Con Air–worthy Southern accent and, what’s more, Nic Cage gets a huge knife stabbed through his entire hand. Grand Isle karate kicks its way into theaters and VOD’s sternum on December 6.
