A new era and more

The multiverse has called, and it wants it all back. If this phrase means nothing to you, that’s okay, because now you can finally watch Everything everywhere all at once, which is one of the new movies this week on VOD, in order to understand the meaning. And if you’re watching that one and you’re in the mood for even more genre and reality movies, you’re in luck because you can also check out The unbearable weight of massive talent on VOD, in which Nicolas Cage plays a very meta version of himself, all washed up after doing a bunch of mediocre movies and ready to retire, when an appearance at a billionaire’s birthday party throws him in an international espionage scheme.

This new film brings all our favorite characters back to life, including Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess of Grantham, whose frail health prevents her from visiting France, where she inherited a villa. Instead, her family travels there to see the place, and her son, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) learns that it may have been conceived as a result of an old fling the dowager had. with a now deceased Marquis. The film is full of hijinks like this, but rest assured, as with everything in our favorite area of ​​Yorkshire, things tend to work out in the end.

These are just a few of the titles available to watch on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, YouTube, and through your cable service this week. Find out now which films are available for purchase or rental on demand!

Nicolas Cage has spent the last decade trying to pay off a series of large debts he racked up by taking on dozens and dozens of roles in mostly straight-to-VOD movies, many of which weren’t great. The decision was financially sound, as he was out of debt, but it often left him the butt of the joke, that he was cleansed and ready to take on whatever roles came his way. And he knows all of this. That’s what makes The unbearable weight of massive talent such a unique movie, in that Cage plays a fictionalized version of himself, desperate to get out of a company that chewed him up and spat out, until he was offered a million dollars to make a personal appearance at a party, which will end up changing his life. It’s no Pigbut Massive talent delivers some genuinely entertaining moments and it’s a thrill to watch Cage grow into the funny, quirky guy we love who can laugh at the roller coaster ride his reputation has taken.
