Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Nicolas Cage, wonderful actor and Prince of Memes, might be about to ascend to another plane of existence. Because Nicolas Cage is in talks to play Nicolas Cage in a movie about – wait for it – Nicolas Cage. The film is The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, and Cage would play a fictionalized version of himself having to reckon with his career choices while also getting mixed up in a plot involving the CIA and a drug cartel kingpin.

bringing out the dead scorsese

Can a Martin Scorsese movie be considered truly underrated? Scorsese has produced one well-regarded film after another for the majority of his career, and his bonafides remain untouchable. But nestled within Scorsese’s impressive filmography might be one truly underrated gem: his 1999 effort Bringing Out the Dead. It’s a wild, energetic, but ultimately compassionate work. It was also a major box office flop that barely made a blip and still hasn’t been released on Blu-ray. Twenty years later, Bringing Out the Dead is overdue for a reappraisal.

primal trailer nic cage

The jaguar is being transported via ship – but so is a crazy political assassin. When the assassin breaks free, he lets the jaguar, and a bunch of other animals, loose. Mayhem follows.

color out of space interview

After crafting cult genre curiosities like Hardware and Dust Devil, South African filmmaker Richard Stanley was presented with the opportunity to break into Hollywood productions with a big adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. But things didn’t turn out as planned, and Stanely found himself fired by the production – a saga chronicled in the documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau. Stanley then stepped away from feature film directing for over 20 years.

Now, Stanley makes his return with Color Out of Space, a big, weird adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s tale of terror The Colour Out of Space. The project finds Stanley working with Nicolas Cage and Joely Richardson, and the three were on hand at the Toronto International Film Festival where the film had its world premiere. Stanley, Cage, and Richardson spoke with /Film about what makes this particular Lovecraft adaptation so special.

color out of space review

One thought kept running through my head as I watched Color Out of Space: “What the fuck is this?” It’s become almost a cliche at this point to highlight how “weird” and “bonkers” the latest Nicolas Cage movie is. But even those well-versed in the art of Cage’s self-titled Nouveau Shamanic acting style won’t be prepared for what’s in store with Richard Stanley‘s adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s story. The prospect of Cage uniting with such a fascinating director as Stanely – whose career hit a major roadblock after the disaster of shooting The Island of Doctor Moreau – is too intriguing to pass up. But is the end result actually worthwhile? Or just so damn weird that it has to be seen to be believed?

Running with the Devil Trailer

It feels like there are almost as many movies about drug trafficking as there are drugs on the streets, and one more is getting ready to hit theaters and VOD. But Running with the Devil is a little more special than your average crime thriller, because it stars Nicolas Cage and Laurence Fisburne as two pieces of a big drug trafficking organization that is on the verge of being torn apart. This is the kind of movie where characters are known only as The Boss, The Cook and The Man. Watch the Running with the Devil trailer below for a taste of the product. Read More »

Like some sort of perverted Noah’s Ark, Primal will trap Nicolas Cage on a ship full of predatory animals. And honestly, what the hell more do you need? Can’t you just see that movie in your head already? See Cage running around, screaming that scream of his, as CGI animals leap about with fangs bared? I know I can. And I want it in front of my face immediately.
