Legendary actor Nicolas Cage finally gets himself out of the hell of direct-to-video releases with a stunning build-up to the self-referential action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. Though he spent much of the last few years taking all roles offered to pay off his debts, Cage landed some new ones that jolted his status as a captivatingly unique actor back into the headlines. Here’s everything to know about his first film of 2022, where he stars as a fictional version of himself.
