Nicolas Cage is back in action! Here’s the first trailer for his upcoming Tokarev movie, which tells the story of a former criminal in search of his daughter’s kidnappers. This crime thriller marks Spanish director Paco Cabezas’ American debut, has some pretty cool cast on board, and (as you’re about to see) doesn’t look bad at all. Head inside to take a look… Cage stars as a guy named Paul Maguire who, together with his buddies Kane and Doherty lives a life of crime. One night, they ambush a Russian mobster, intercepting him when he’s on his way to drop off money to his boss. The take is much larger than they imagined; along with a Russian gun called a Tokarev, they get away with a briefcase full of cash. It’s enough for Paul to leave the life of crime and go legit, but their crime sets off a bloody protracted war between their Irish crime family and the Russian mob. Paul instructs his friends to hide the money until things calm down between their outft and the Russians. In spite of several casualties on both sides, their plan works well; five years after stealing the money, Paul, Kane and Doherty meet to split up the take.
Here’s the rest of the plot:
Paul uses his share to slowly build a legitimite construction empire. He marries a beautiful, ambitious woman named Vanessa and is a doting father to his teenage daughter Caitlin. His former mob boss, O’Connell has allowed him to go legit, but he remains friends with his former buddies who haven’t had his luck when it comes to reforming. One night Paul and Vanessa are heading to a charity dinner, leaving Caitlin at home to hang out with her friends Evan and Mike. At the dinner, a detective approaches Paul, who is used to being hassled for his former life of crime. But the Detective isn’t hassling him; something has happened to Caitlin. Evan and Nick tell the police and Paul that they were watching TV with Caitlin, when several Russian men barged in and took her. They fought – but the Russians overtook Mike and Evan. Convinced the kidnapping is long-overdue retaliation for the crimes of his youth – specifically his run-in with Ivan, Paul ignores the police and mounts his own investigation. Paul and his buddies shake down and rough up anyone they can find who might be connected to Chernov, the legendary mob boss whose money they stole seventeen years earlier. O’Connell pleads with Paul to stop his rampage, but he refuses. Vanessa, who initially backed her husband’s search, now fears he’s becoming the killer he once was. But there exists another possibility: perhaps he has always been a violent man and can never truly leave that life behind.Also starring Rachel Nichols, Peter Stormare, Danny Glover, Max Ryan, Judd Lormand and Pavel Lychnikoff, Tokarev is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2014.
