Nobody can do comedy like Nicholas Cage, and the actor is returning with another film that is already creating waves. Titled ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent,’ the film premiered at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and is getting rave reviews from everyone. After screening the film to the first wave of critics, the highly-anticipated film has even earned a rare 100 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film stars the Oscar-winning actor as a fictionalized version of himself. The character plays into the peculiarities of his long list of performances and chronicles the life he lived. A stellar ensemble cast joins Cage, including Tiffany Haddish, Neil Patrick Harris, and Pedro Pascal. The film is slated to open in theatres on April 22nd. 

In the film, we would get to see Cage’s character fights financial struggles by agreeing to appear at the birthday party of a billionaire fan for $1million played by Pascal. He hence revisits his past roles and relives his storied career with references to Cage’s cult classics such as Face/Off, Castor Troy, seen in the film.

Here’s What Twitter Is Saying About The Film

Interestingly, Nicholas Cage recently revealed that he rejected the role in ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ during a THR interview. He revealed that he “turned it down three or four times” and that when he first heard the analogy of the film, he was pretty offended.

“I wanted no part of it. But when I got Tom’s letter, then I thought, ‘OK, he’s not just trying to mock so-called Nick Cage; there is a real interest in some of the earlier work.’ His tone was more of a celebration of some of my iconic onscreen moments — like being at the bottom of the pool in Leaving Las Vegas or [using] the gold guns in Face/Off,” he said.
