Nicolas Cage stars as… Nick Cage in the action-comedy 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, channelling 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.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a sincere, authentic, and hilarious love letter to Nicolas Cage – as you know and love him … and as you’ve never seen him before.
It’s the role he was born to play.

The Life Interview: Encore Films founder Joyce Lee went from importer to film-maker
Ms Joyce Lee loves cars.
She owns a Maserati GranTurismo and a Mercedes-Benz E250. Together, they cost the managing director of Encore Films $750,000.
She loves the Italian sports machine because of its throaty rumble and handling, while the more placid Mercedes four-door is her choice when passenger comfort is a priority.
The cars are a status symbol and that is the point: When the daughter of an absentee father and a hotel housekeeper mother was younger, she vowed that she would one day afford her dream car.
