We've got an exclusive new clip from Nicolas Cage's brilliant new movie Willy's Wonderland, out tomorrow (February 12) in the UK.

In the clip, which you can see above, Cage's character The Janitor comes face-to-face with a killer animatronic ostrich, called Ozzie the Ostrich, armed only with a mop, but we still know who we're banking on to survive.

But why is The Janitor taking on a bloodthirsty ostrich who wants to "feast on your face"? Well, Willy's Wonderland sees The Janitor stranded in a remote town and unable to pay for car repairs, so he agrees to spend the night in an abandoned amusement park to clean it up for reopening as payment.

He's unaware though that the titular theme park has a dark past and that at night, the mascots of Willy's Wonderland come to life and have a thirst for blood, leaving the Janitor facing a fight for survival.

Directed by Kevin Lewis, Willy's Wonderland also stars Emily Tosta as Liv Hawthorne, a teenager with a personal link to the park's bloody past, and Beth Grant as Sheriff Eloise Lund.

The movie was originally titled Wally's Wonderland and its screenplay – written by G.O. Parsons – was on the BloodList, which compiles the most highly-anticipated genre scripts around.

"For me, there was always one actor and one actor only who could make this movie work and that actor is Nic Cage," said Lewis in October 2019 when the movie was announced.

"I'm thrilled to be working with him and can't wait to see him go up against Wally and his gang of psychopathic misfits. I see this movie as Pale Rider vs Killer Klowns from Outer Space."

Willy's Wonderland will be released on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes and other digital platforms in the UK on February 12.
