Shanghai: Oscar award-winning actor Nicolas Cage walked the red carpet at the Shanghai International Film Festival held this weekend here.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy Award-winner was there to promote his next film project ‘Primal’.
In a media briefing at the opening ceremony, Cage thanked his Chinese fans for their loyalty.
“The Super 8 feeling (personal philosophy of film-making) is what my brother and I used to feel when we made movies in the backyard with the camera our dad bought us when we were kids. I didn’t care about awards or money; it was simply because we loved making the movie and telling a story,” he said.
Cage summarised the movie for the press saying it was a completely original concept and he loved the script the moment he read it.
He also brought along an unfinished footage of the movie and said it will be “very exciting in the grand tradition of adventure films.”
Nicolas has starred in over 80 films and has received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award.
