Exclusive: Featurette Clip from Joe Focuses on Origins of Film

Posted by monique On June - 18 - 2014 0 Comment

“Joe” is the film all Nicolas Cage fans need to see right now. The film, considered one of Cage’s best performances, is now available on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD Ultraviolet), DVD (plus Digital Ultraviolet) and Digital HD. We’ve got an exclusive clip from the film–a portion of the featurette “The Long Gavel Drive: The Origins of Joe.” The clip delves into the background of Larry Brown, the author of “Joe: A Novel,” the book the film is based on. Take a look at the clip below the post.

“Joe” stars Nicolas Cage as the title character, a former criminal who becomes someone he wouldn’t have expected himself to become–a role model.

“Cage delivers an intensely powerful performance as Joe, an ex-con with a hair-trigger temper who is trying to stay out of trouble, making an honest yet meager life for himself, and the unlikeliest of role models. But when he meets a troubled 15-year old homeless boy (Sheridan) in need of help from a violent and destitute father, Joe is faced with the heart-breaking choice of redemption or ruin.”

The film also stars Tye Sheridan (“Mud”,” “Tree Of Life”) and directed by David Gordon Green. The film was an official selection of the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals and called “one of Nicolas Cage’s best performances,” according to

The film’s home release features deleted scenes, an audio commentary with David Gordon Green, composer David Wingo and actor Brian D. Mays and two featurettes about the behind-the-scenes workings of the film and the origins of the film. “Joe” is available for $24.99 (Blu-ray) and $19.98 (DVD).
