“Whose pig is it?”
This is the pivotal question posed by Nicolas Cage
in the new trailer
for his upcoming film "Pig."
According to The Hollywood
Reporter, the drama follows an Oregonian former chef and mushroom enthusiast who lives in the woods with his beloved truffle-hunting pig. She is kidnapped, and Cage's character sets out to find them and save his porcine companion.
While several sites have noted that the premise is similar to Keanu Reeves' quest to find his dog
in "John Wick," there are also some major "Liam Neeson searching for his daughter in 'Taken'" vibes. (Cage definitely has a very specific set of skills, chief of which is starring in completely out-of-the-box movies
The trailer elicited a frenzy on Twitter

I think we no longer recoil when we see a premise for a Nicolas Cage film. Of course, he plays a truffle hunter looking for his kidnapped pig. https://t.co/GiaXmYEeGt

I believe Liam Neeson should assist Nicolas Cage in finding his pig and blaming Harrison Ford
for it, or at least that is the movie I would watch. — Mr. Newberger (@jeremynewberger) June 17, 2021
For me, Nicolas Cage saying "I'm looking for a truffle pig" is already a classic line in cinema https://t.co/xz7lBzPFEI

All we can hope is that the pig survives.
