For months now, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the trailer for Willy’s Wonderland, which will see Nicolas Cage (Mandy, Color Out of Space) going head to head with killer animatronics. Well, grab your popcorn and cotton candy, because it’s finally here!
In the film, The Janitor (Cage) finds himself stranded in a remote town. Unable to pay the repair shop to fix his Jeep, he agrees to work off his debt by spending the night cleaning Willy’s Wonderland, an abandoned theme park full of animatronic characters that were once a beacon of fun for children to play with.
But Willy’s Wonderland carries a dark secret that The Janitor is about to discover: he’s been lured into a deadly trap, or rather, a living nightmare, as the Wonderland’s animatronic characters come to life to destroy him. To survive until morning, The Janitor is forced to fight his way from one monster to another. Luckily, he doesn’t play nice.
Kevin Lewis directed the film, which was written by G.O. Parsons. The cast also includes Emily Tosta (Mayans M.C.), Beth Grant (Donnie Darko), and Ric Reitz (The Loft).
Willy’s Wonderland releases worldwide in theatres, on digital, and on demand on February 12th. Take a trip to the Wonderland by watching the trailer below!
