The United Arab Emirates has not been the most cinematically fruitful region up until now, but it looks like that’s all about to change given the explosive new trailer for Majid Al-Ansari’s directorial debut, “Rattle The Cage.” Also called “Zinzana,” the psychological thriller tells the story of a falsely accused prisoner and the psychopathic man who keeps him locked up.

The superbly edited trailer gives off a strong Tarantino vibe, promising visual intensity, hyper-stylized violence and heaps of black humor. From this early look, “Rattle The Cage” seems to feature two knockout performances facing off in a battle of malice and mind games. Saleh Bakri (“The Time That Remains”) stars as Talal, the desperate inmate trying to save his family’s life, opposite Ali Suliman (“Paradise Lost”), who plays the manipulative madman, Al Daban, on the other side of the cell. As the trailer makes abundantly clear, “Bad Men Aren’t Always Behind Bars.”

“Rattle The Cage” appears to be a landmark film for Image Nation Abu Dhabi, which fully financed the production. IM Global will control the film’s worldwide release, while Cinetic Media will handle the domestic distribution.

“Rattle The Cage” makes its world premiere this weekend at the Fantastic Fest. Check out the stylish trailer above.
