First poster for John Carpenters new film

A new poster for John Carpenter’s Riot has been released online, revealing a whole lot of nothing about the director’s first movie in a decade.

As you can see in the gallery, the teaser poster highlights that Nic Cage will star in the movie, even turning the tagline into a pun on his name. Cage… Uncaged... See what they did there? *sigh*

Originally entitled Scared Straight, Riot follows the story of a troubled youth who is sent to jail under a crime-prevention program. When a riot breaks out, a lifer (Cage) is forced to help him out.

Sounds like a perfect Carpenter movie to us. Prisons, all-male cast, issues of government intervention and repression. We’re cautiously optimistic.

Thanks to SlashFilm for the poster .
