Nic Cage falls in love with ‘Paddington 2’ in new ‘Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ promo


In a new promo clip released ahead of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Nicolas Cage is aghast to learn his superfan Javi Gutierrez (Pedro Pascal) loves Paddington 2 so much that it’s his third favorite movie of all time. But that soon changes when the duo sits down to watch the movie again.

Lauded by critics as one of the best action-comedy films in recent memory, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent stars the National Treasure star as himself. Cage is invited to the birthday party of a billionaire superfan, learning after the fact that he’s actually a very dangerous arms dealer. Now, he has to live through some of his most iconic roles to save his wife and daughter from the crime lord.

But before things take a turn for the worse, Cage and Gutierrez will hang out and have a grand time talking about their favorite movies. Pedro Pascal’s antagonist might also secretly be harboring a heart of gold because he admits to having cried with Paddington 2, though Cage certainly can’t blame him after watching the film for himself.
