Nicolas Cage Beleaguered By IRS Again

April 15th, 2011 4:46pm EDT
Nicolas Cage
Actor Nicolas Cage has been targeted by the International Revenue Service (IRS) again for failing to pay taxes on gifts he issued over the last seven years.

The IRS filed a federal tax lien against the National Treasure star on March 17th in Los Angeles for neglecting to pay the required 35 per cent tax on all large gifts. The document, obtained by TMZ.com, reveals Cage gave away roughly $1.8 million worth of gifts since 2004 and reportedly owes the government just over $600,000 in unpaid taxes.

In 2009, it was reported the movie star owed $14 million to the IRS after receiving demands ...

Nicolas Cage's 9 Best Movies

February 23rd, 2011 2:58pm EST
drive_angry_cage-220
Nicolas Kim Coppola, nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola, wanted to build his career on his own merits. So the Oscar winner dropped the familiar surname in favor of Cage and has been going his own way ever since -- which is, to say, every way possible.

With the acting chops to move our souls and the ripped biceps of an action star, you'll have equal chances finding him in your local art house as in your mall's multiplex. Cage has worn endless hats -- and hairstyles.

And with his new flick "Drive Angry 3D" hitting theaters, we thought this would be a good time to look back at Cage's fi...

George Clooney Denies Giving Loan To Nicolas Cage

November 27th, 2009 4:00pm EST
George Clooney
George Clooney's representative is baffled by reports the star is helping cash-strapped Nicolas Cage settle his debts - because he barely knows the National Treasure actor.

Cage filed suit against his former business manager Samuel Levin last month, alleging he had sent the star "down a path of financial ruin" by misleading him and overcharging for his services.

The accusations stem from a $6.26 million tax lien Cage has been handed by America's Internal Revenue Service, alleging he failed to pay income tax on wages dating back to 2007.

Cage is also facing other claims of unpaid...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

July 20th, 2009 9:27am EDT
The Ugly Truth
Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to catch "Dead Snow" on Demand, and it was everything I hoped it would be. To enjoy the film though you truly need to suspend your disbelief, because if Nazi zombies are not enough, there are tons of really ridiculous, impossible events that occur.

This self-aware horror film makes many hilarious references both directly and indirectly to other movies of the genre. Characters are incredibly cliché and the dialogue is woefully written, but it is an action packed gore-fest featuring some of the most delightfully brutal horror movie deaths.

Tomorrow Nicolas Cage's latest movie Knowing will be released on DVD. When you sit down to watch a Cage movie you're at worst getting an enjoyable movie, as best, you're getting an Oscar-worthy film.

'Angels & Demons' Is A Complete Mess

May 18th, 2009 2:41pm EDT
Angels and Demons
Dan Brown's novels have a single extraordinary trick to them that play out in both film adaptations, "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons." Essentially, the movies (and books, respectively) are tours of Europe's most famous landmarks given at break-neck speed and cloaked in a cheesy dinner murder mystery that gives them an edge most museum or Vatican tours don't have. In that context, "Angels & Demons" is a success. In all others however, it fails miserably.

Director Jerry Bruckheimer has urged Hollywood studios and striking Writers Guild members to sit down and end the industrial action that is crippling the TV and movie industries.

The National Treasure film maker insists innocent crew members are suffering because the two parties haven't reached a deal after weeks of picketing.

He says, "For me, it's awful. But it's more awful for crews. It's really sad that two sides can't get together and make a deal. They should have made a deal six months ago."

With every surplus of holiday cheer comes a few Scrooges. Some can't stand all the mushiness, or perhaps they just want to have something blow up to go along with their eggnog. Maybe they just like to sit on the edge of their seats instead of on Santa's lap. Fair enough.

For those people, there have been a few real holiday film gems over the years. Some are disturbing, such as Santa going on a killing spree. Others are entertaining, like Die Hard's Christmas party gone awry.
