Nicolas Cage’s one person mission to appear in all the movies continues to throw out some bizarre offerings, but every once in a while the enigma that is Cage serves up something so odd it swings round to must-see. Welcome to Willy’s Wonderland, giggle-worthy titles aside, Cage stars as a mysterious loner who takes some custodial work and an abandoned theme park, but when the arrary of rusty animatronic park mascots get murderous, it’s up to Cage to save the day.
While Cage has made some pretty terrible movies over the last decade or so, he is always watchable in them, well maybe not Left Behind, that was just unwatchable. However, Cage is at his best when he seems to be having fun, and who doesn’t want to see Cage hack his way through an army of possessed robots. Nobody that’s who! Willy’s Wonderland was due out in cinemas, but owing to the pandemic, it will be debuting on demand and home entertainment on February 12. The first full trailer is now online which you can see below.
A quiet loner (Nic Cage) finds himself stranded in a remote town when his car breaks down. Unable to pay for the repairs he needs, he agrees to spend the night cleaning Willy’s Wonderland, an abandoned family fun center. But this wonderland has a dark secret that the “The Janitor” is about to discover. He soon finds himself trapped inside Willy’s and locked in an epic battle with the possessed animatronic mascots that roam the halls. To survive, he must fight his way through each of them.
