Cage stars as a cash-strapped Nic Cage who agrees to make a paid appearance at a billionaire super fan’s birthday party, but is really an informant for the CIA since the billionaire fan is a drug kingpin and gets cast in a Tarantino movie.
He is forced to live up to his own legend, channeling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones.
Here’s the new trailer:
The Lionsgate synopsis reads:
“Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Cage must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a dangerous superfan (Pedro Pascal). Things take a wildly unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative (Tiffany Haddish) and forced to live up to his own legend, channeling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones. With a career built for this very moment, the seminal award-winning actor takes on the role of a lifetime: Nick Cage.”
