"The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent" opens today on most of the planet

Today is the day we’ve been waiting for. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022), the movie in which Nicolas Cage plays Nicolas Cage is coming out in theaters around the world, in most of the countries. So, people, you already have plans for this weekend.

Let’s refresh the memory and dig into the plot of this action-comedy thriller. 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. Things take a wildly unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative 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: Nick Cage.

This is the new movie by writer and director Tom Gormican, known for his awards-winner comedy That Awkward Moment (2014). Kevin Etten, a producer of the TV series Desperate Housewives (2004–2012), Scrubs (2001–2010), and Ghosted (2017), is the co-writer and executive producer of the movie.

Besides Nicolas Cage playing the hero, the main cast for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022) is formed by Pedro Pascal, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffany Haddish, Sharon Horgan, Ike Barinholtz, Eli Jane, Jacob Scipio, Alessandra Mastronardi, Joanna Bobin, and Paco León.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022) had its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival on Mach 12, 2022. As it couldn’t be different, it was received with great reviews. Now, it is coming out in theaters worldwide, although some countries like Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Sweden, or Italy will have to wait a little bit longer.

The movie is Rated R for language throughout, some sexual references, drug use, and violence. Here you can watch the official Red Band trailer for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022).
