With a U.S. release less than two months away, Anchor Bay is starting up the (likely small) marketing machine for Seeking Justice, a new thriller starring Nicolas Cage, January Jones, and Guy Pearce. So, after a first preview came our way in September, Apple has unveiled the newest look at Roger Donaldson‘s latest — and if you weren’t impressed by that piece, this probably won’t change your mind. It still looks the same — fine, and better than many a recent Cage vehicles — but virtually nothing on display stands out from similar material we’ve all seen time and time again. Regardless, I think — barring cliches and hammy acting on the lead’s part — it could bring some fun elements, if this trailer serves as any indication.
Watch it below:
Synopsis: A happily married family man’s quiet life is turned upside-down when his wife is brutally attacked one night while leaving work. The husband unwittingly pulls himself into a dangerous underground vigilante operation after agreeing to an intriguing offer for a stranger to exact vengeance on his wife’s attacker. While continuing to protect his wife from the truth, he quickly discovers that his quest for justice could lead to frightening and deadly consequences.
Seeking Justice opens on March 16th.

What dictated these labels […]
