The exciting atmosphere soon gave way to that of anxiety and violence after the pig was kidnapped by an assailant who engaged Cage in a heated exchange.

The trailer details the attendant traumatic experience that trail the ensuing melee with Cage finding it difficult to stomach the loss of his pig.

“I remember every meal that I cooked. I remember all the people I served. You live your life for them and they don’t even see you. You don’t even see yourself,” Cage said in the trailer.

“We don’t have a lot of things that really worry us … who’s got my pig?”

The project, directed by Michael Sarnoski, was filmed in 2019 and was initially billed for release last but was delayed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

It features several movie stars including Alex Wolff, Adam Arkin, and Gretchen Corbett.
