Nicolas Cage, the most original and talented actor of all time, has been going strong for over three decades, bringing us an enduring and indelible filmography of over 60 films. The past year has been no exception; just when you thought the man could not demonstrate his gloriously eclectic range and depth of ability further, his cinematic genius in 2011 has continued to amaze and excite with new material in different genres, and with the thrilling promise of projects of epic proportions ringing in our ears as we head into 2012, us fans are very fortunate indeed that if anything, the momentum of our cinematNIC experience is even more amped up than ever!
So, cheers to Mr Nicolas Cage for yet another NICtastic year!
Here are some of our favourite Nic bits from 2011:
1. Arise Sir Nicolas Cage!
At long last, Nicolas Cage travels to the past as a knight fit for a castle, unleashing his sword in a suspense filled supernatural period thriller of witches and demons, vapour harpies, zombie monks, gnarling wolves, spooky forests straight out of a scene from The Wizard Of Oz, and all set against the breathtaking backdrop of the most stunning Austrian and Hungarian scenery, alongside cult b-movie horror movie maestro Sir Christopher Lee, in SEASON OF THE WITCH!
2. The Hero From Hell
Nicolas Cage drives straight out of hell, like a bad boy ghost pirate with a golden heart, into a gloriously decadent, muscle car racing, cult leader chasing, baby saving, gun toting-cigar toking-JD swilling-while having sex, R-rated in yer face full on 3D action supernatural movie DRIVE ANGRY!
3. A Tense And Twisting Diamond Dealer Thriller
4. The Hungry Rabbit Jumped!

To us fans of course, Nicolas Cage IS immortal, having reincarnated in over 6O different lifetimes in his Over. 60. Films!
8. Nicolas Cage On The Stage And Music To Our Ears?
To gasps of OMG, a rumour enticingly soared into the lives of fans everywhere on the wings of 2011, Nicolas Cage Is To Star In A Stage Version of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest On Broadway!
The man himself tantalizingly commented on the rumour with “It’s possible..it’s highly possible” in this Ghost Rider Spirit Of Vengeance Interview at Comic-Con 2011!
As it this weren’t enough, just when you thought that for an actor who has excelled in many genres, there would be nowhere left for Nicolas Cage to artistically go, in this interview at the beginning of the year, he revealed he would like to try his hand at a musical, and just as this enthralling proposition began to sing through the blood stream, news arrived of just such a project, at first only a rumour but soon confirmed, Nicolas Cage is to reteam with writer director Charlie Kaufman in a Musical Hollywood Satire, FRANK OR FRANCIS. Intriguing music to our ears as their previous 2002 collaboration ADAPTATION was critically acclaimed, and the plot for the new film revolves around an online blogger, an issue pretty close to our hearts!
9. Nicolas Cage Teaches Us Biology
This has to be one of the more hilarious NICternet sensations of 2011, The highly ironic placement of a photo of Nicolas Cage as H.I and Holly Hunter as Ed, who were unable to have children of their own and stole a baby in the 1987 movie RAISING ARIZONA, on the front of an educational Serbian biology book.
It inspired some further Ironic Nicolas Cage Book Covers and that can never be a bad thing!
10. Mr MaverNIC Cage!
Nicolas Cage has received many Awards during his enduring film career, but what could be more smile worthy than our favourite actor receiving The MAVERICK Award at the 2011 SCREAM AWARDS in recogntion of his
“fearless and intriguing body of work. Appearing in over 60 films, Cage has blazed his way through Hollywood and created some of the most memorable, eccentric and indelible roles.”
