Russia will not see Cage in the new film

Written by admin

Russian box office was left without the adventurous comedy “The Unbearable Weight of Great Talent.”

Unpleasant news awaits fans of Nicholas Cage, and just moviegoers who are hungry for quality premieres during the pandemic. Many were looking forward to the release of the promising comedy “The Unbearable Weight of Great Talent.”

The aging Cage, who has often been ridiculed for his strange choice of roles in recent years, has promised to return triumphant as himself, an actor whose glorious days are over, but a series of events turn his life into a mad adventure. The trailers hinted at a really exciting spectacle and a very energetic duo of Cage and Pedro Pascal.

The film was supposed to premiere on April 21, but it became known that the Lionsgate studio has suspended the release of its releases in Russia. Rental companies from Central Partnership hope to continue cooperation with Lionsgate, which has released such hits as “John Wick” and “Get the Knives” in our country. According to them, large studios are reluctant to leave the lucrative market, because their films have always collected a good box office from us, reports BC.

Lionsgate followed the example of other major studios that have severed ties with the Russian film market: giants Paramount, Disney and Warner Bros. have previously dropped out.
