New ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ Trailer

Lionsgate has released a new official trailer for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, starring Nicolas Cage as a fictionalized version of himself. Let’s take a look.

Oh my god, this looks like it’s going to be so much fun! Cage has never once failed to deliver as an actor (screw the Academy for snubbing his work in Pig) and seeing him channel his past characters/himself will definitely be a treat. You know my ass will be in a seat come opening weekend.

In addition to Cage, the film stars Pedro Pascal, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffany Haddish, and Ike Barinholtz.

Plot Synopsis:

Nicolas Cage stars as… Nicolas Cage in the action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Cage must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a dangerous superfan (Pedro Pascal). Things take a wildly unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative (Tiffany Haddish) and forced to live up to his own legend, channeling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones. With a career built for this very moment, the seminal award-winning actor must take on the role of a lifetime: Nicolas Cage.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent hits theaters April 22, 2022.
