The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent has a new trailer that shows how fantastic a film in which Nicolas Cage plays Nicolas Cage can be.
Lionsgate clearly believes we need more reasons to see a picture with such a bizarre premise in theaters. Of course, we don't, but it's fantastic to have more evidence proving that the perfect movie exists, and it'll be released next month.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent: Release date, trailer, and more
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent will be released in theaters on April 22, 2022.
The trailer depicts a world in which Cage is not recognized as the genius he is and ends up bankrupt. Cage's therapist wonders if he believes he has lost his skills, producers refuse to cast him in new projects, and bills pile up as the star is unable to find work.
In a nightmare version of our reality, Cage, a cinematic hero, is reduced to animating the party of billionaire superfan Javi, played by Pedro Pascal. It's a gig unworthy of Cage's talent, but it'll pay him a million bucks.
Cage, on the other hand, has the time of his life aside from Javi, who appears to adore him like the rest of the world should. However, as they always say, if something appears to be flawless, it usually isn't.
Cage's dreams will be dashed when the CIA discovers that his dreamy millionaire is a dangerous and ruthless criminal.
Cage then must become the acting god he always was and join the millionaire's inner circle, assisting the CIA in taking down the crime lord while drawing on the strengths of all of his greatest roles.
