The sequel to the best historical adventure film since Harrison Ford took over our screens as Indianna Jones is due to be released next week in the US.
Now, I loved the first film and really hope this sequel is going to live up to expectations of suspense, excitement and exhileration. Fingers Crossed!!
Here’s what the official synopsis says:
In this follow up to the box-office hit “National Treasure,” treasure hunter Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) once again sets out on an exhilarating, action-packed new global quest to unearth hidden history and treasures.
When a missing page from the diary of John Wilkes Booth surfaces, Ben’s great-great grandfather is suddenly implicated as a key conspirator in Abraham Lincoln’s death. Determined to prove his ancestor’s innocence, Ben follows an international chain of clues that takes him on a chase from Paris to London and ultimately back to America. This journey leads Ben and his crew not only to surprising revelations – but to the trail of the world’s most treasured secrets.
I have to say it sounds pretty amazing, and I just can’t wait for it to be released here in the UK. The official website www.nationaltreasure.com allows you to view the trailer which gives you a real taste of what this film is all about: Mystery, History, Action and Heros….. just my kind of thing!!
The film, for which a UK release date is yet to be announced, has ben rated a PG, so should be a great movie for all the family, old and young alike. Lets just hope it is a good as the original………
