The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Nicolas Cage is about to take on the ultimate Nicolas Cage role: Nicolas Cage. Cage is playing a fictionalized version of himself in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, which finds the actor reckoning with his career choices while also getting mixed up in a plot involving the CIA and a drug cartel kingpin. Playing Nic Cage will require Nic Cage to revisit some Nic Cage movies, a concept that the actor isn’t entirely comfortable with. But he’ll do it anyway, because he’s an artist, gosh darn it. In a new interview, Cage opens up a little about what it’s going to be like to play himself.

Primal - Nicolas Cage

Last fall, we reported on what could be the most Nicolas Cage movie ever made. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent will see the National Treasure star playing a fictionalized version of himself struggling with career ambitions, a strained relationship with his daughter, and helping the U.S. government stop a Mexican drug cartel kingpin who is responsible for a high profile kidnapping. Yes, as crazy as it sounds, this movie is real, and it just got a release date in spring 2021 from Lionsgate. Read More »

color out of space interview

(This interview originally ran last September following the Toronto International Film Festival. Color Out of Space opens this weekend.)

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.

national treasure 3 update

Are we actually getting National Treasure 3 sometime soon? Maybe! A new report indicates that Bad Boys for Life co-writer Chris Bremner is writing the script for the third entry in the Nicolas Cage adventure series, which will presumably send Cage’s Benjamin Gates on yet another silly-yet-entertaining historically inaccurate adventure. National Treasure 3 has been a possibility for several years now, but the project has stalled out multiple times. But now it looks like the third film might be happening after all.

grand isle trailer

Long have we waited for a film that teams up Nicolas Cage and Kelsey Grammer, and then has them use heavy southern accents. Grand Isle is sweaty looking southern gothic thriller that has Cage hiring a young man to kill his wife, and Grammer as the cop looking into the crime. But there’s more than meets the eye about this case. Watch the Grand Isle trailer below.
