Film Friday: "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent," Looks Like a Hoot

Nicholas Cage plays himself, or a version of himself, in the new movie, "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent." Cage is an exhausted actor ready to call it quits until an enigmatic rich guy (played deliciously by Pedro Pascal) offers to pay 1 million dollars for Cage to hang out with him at his birthday party. They become good friends but it turns out Pascal's character is a dangerous crime lord resulting in some FBI agents (Tiffany Haddish, Ike Barinholtz) recruiting Cage to help take him down. It sounds utterly insane and the trailer is quite funny with Neil Patrick Harris almost threatening to steal the show from Cage as his agent. Observe:

That looks quite funny and very meta. I think I'd like to see it!
