A first look at Knowing

There’s a very good reason for Nic Cage to look terrified in the new pictures from his latest sci-fi drama Knowing, and it’s not because he’s worried people will remember the distinctly dodgy Next.

Nope, he’s playing a man who discovers that a mysterious set of numbers are linked to catastrophes, including the 9/11 attacks. The digits are part of a letter he finds in a time capsule at his child’s school and soon realises that he’ll have to try to avert the end of the world. Alex Proyas is directing and USA Today has more pictures .
