Kevin Spacey, the man that has given us films like, Se7en, The Usual Suspects, American Beauty and L.A Confidential now stars in his newest (soon to be) classic – Nine Lives. It’s the age old story of a rich and powerful business man, who has let his family life fall apart while he concentrates on the biggest deal of his life. Unfortunately for him, an eccentric pet store owner (Christopher Walken) is about to change all of that. After purchasing a cat for his daughter’s birthday, and a subsequent car crash en route to the party, Spacey wakes up to find himself trapped inside of the family’s new cat.

While Spacey’s character adjusts to life as a cat, he gets to see his family from a whole different perspective and must use this knowledge to become a better husband, father and general human being if he ever wants to return to his human form. It may seem a bit removed from the characters we’re used to seeing Kevin Spacey play, but it is hardly the first time he has played something other than a murdering psychopath. See A Bug’s Life. 

As an added bonus, while looking up information for this movie, I found another movie called Nine Lives starring Paris Hilton from 2002, and I feel it is necessary to include the trailer for that also. Maybe we could get some kind of Marvel cross over film happening… (please excuse the quality, it’s from a time when VHS was still a thing).

NINE LIVES, starring Kevin Spacey, Christopher Walken and Jennifer Garner, is set for release in August 2016.
