Nic Cage plays a fictionalized version of himself in red band trailer for ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’

A new red band trailer for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is here and it stars Nic Cage as (…checks notes…) Nic Cage.

The highly anticipated new Tom Gormican flick is basically a Nic Cage meme come to life. In the movie, Cage plays himself. The fictionalized Cage takes up a $1 million gig to go to his biggest fan, Javi’s (Pedro Pascal), birthday party. Javi is a drug lord who’s being investigated by a CIA agent (Tiffany Haddish). Haddish forces Cage to be an undercover operative.

In the new The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Nic Cage quits acting. Throughout the clip, Cage and Javi form a friendship, jumping off cliffs into the water and bonding over merchandise of Cage himself. As it progresses, the trailer comes packed with tense action shots.

At one particularly tense point in the trailer, Cage and Javi are in a standoff, as Cage dons his golden guns from FACE/OFF. “I don’t wanna kill you,” Javi says. “You’re the last person I wanna kill,” Cage responds. The pair then exchange wails of “I LOVE YOU.”

Alongside Cage, Pascal, and Hadish, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent stars Neil Patrick Harris, Sharon Hogan, and Ike Barinholtz.

In the forthcoming flick, Cage is “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.”

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is out on April 22nd, 2022 via Lionsgate.
