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 award-winning actor must take on the role of a lifetime: Nicolas Cage.


“As ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ gains momentum, it shape-shifts from a winking critique of actorly excess and celebrity worship to a playful — and on-point — cri de coeur about the state of American cinema.” – Washington Post

“Nicolas Cage plays Nicolas Cage in this whacked-out meta-comedy.” – ABC News
