The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

1h 47m Films, Talks & Events, Action + Adventure, Comedy, Crime 2022

A cash-strapped Nic Cage agrees to make a paid appearance at a billionaire super fan's birthday party, but soon takes on the role of an action hero.

Tom Gormican’s irreverent meta film stars Nicolas Cage as a fictionalized version of himself who becomes embroiled with the CIA after being paid to attend a superfan’s birthday party in Majorca. Also starring Pedro Pascal and Tiffany Haddish.

Price: $4.99 + taxes and fees

Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Nicolas Cage must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a potentially 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, channelling his most well-known and beloved onscreen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones.
