On an almost daily basis, I take time to wonder about Cuba Gooding Jr. Where he went after winning his Oscar, why we don’t see more of him, whether he’ll have another catch phrase. Those sorts of things.
Fortunately, we got our hands on some exclusive images from his forthcoming, direct-to-DVD movie, Sacrifice. The story focuses on a beat down cop, a giant religious icon made of drugs, and the very bad people that want it back.
Direct-to-DVD has a bad reputation, but we here at FSR have been its champion from time to time because there are some truly great movies that never see screens. From the looks of the trailer (which is included below the pics), this one might be one of the good ones.
As a bonus, you can also see what Christian Slater’s been up to.
And here’s that trailer you were clamoring for:
Kim Coates! Awesome. That guy looks like a washed out Kevin Pollock and he does great deranged work.
Besides Gooding Jr’s Batman voice (“Where are the drugs?!”), this looks like a perfectly competent cop drama involving some high stakes drug trafficking. Still, if I were that kid, I would have asked for more than a million? How much does a Virgin Mary made of heroin go for these days?
Sacrifice becomes available for home consumption on April 26th.
