Nicholas Cage plays Nick Cage in one of our most anticipated movies of the year, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (also starring Pedro Pascal). Filmmakers Tom Gormican and Kevin Etten joined us to discuss the journey of getting Cage on board, working with him to create a fictional version of himself that felt real, the creative ways they solved the production's many hurdles, and more. 

Stick around through the interview as we also give our reactions to Thor: Love and Thunder’s first trailer. We also give our reviews for Robert Eggers’ The Northman and Massive Talent. Be sure to check out our interview with Eggers which dropped wherever you get your podcasts earlier this week.
