mandy trailer cannes film festival nicolas cage

When we covered this year’s Cannes Film Festival, we identified the collaboration between director, Panos Cosmatos, and actor, Nicolas Cage, as a perfect match, saying of Mandy, “Movies like this don’t come around that often anymore.”

Currently sitting at 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — based off critic’s reviews — Mandy tells the story of Red Miller (Cage) who lives in solitude in the Shadow Mountains with his love interest, Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough). When a Satanical cult/maniacal leader encroaches on them, it leads to “a spiraling, surreal, bloody rampage of all out, mind-altering vengeance.”

Mandy hits theaters on September 14.
