Nicolas Cage’s prolific year began with his performance in the action thriller “The Trust,” continued with a role in Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” and starring roles in Paul Schrader’s “Dog Eat Dog” and Larry Charles’ “Army of One.” Now, he returns with yet another film this year, “USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage,” about the Portland-class cruiser that delivered parts of the atomic bomb used to end WWII. Cage stars Captain Charles McVay as the ship is torpedoed and sunk by a Japanese submarine and now must survive in shark-infested waters with hundreds of other crewmen. The film co-stars Tom Sizemore (“Saving Private Ryan”), Thomas Jane (“Hung”), Matt Lanter (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) and James Remar (“Sex and the City”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
