Nicolas Cage is back at it. He can do pretty much anything from playing himself to putting on fangs to transform into Dracula. Nic Cage is in so many movies that it almost feels like he is around us all the time. In fact, it wouldn’t be shocking if his face showed up in your dreams. It’s a little scary, but also I would like to experience it …unless Nic Cage is on some Freddy Krueger stuff. I’ll pass in that case. His stare and antics can cause a shiver to creep up your spine, after all. Entertainingly, Nicolas Cage appearing in people’s dreams (and maybe nightmares) is exactly what’s happening in the trailer for Dream Scenario.
Here’s the synopsis for Dream Scenario so the trailer makes sense:
Hapless family man Paul Matthews (Nicolas Cage) finds his life turned upside down when millions of strangers suddenly start seeing him in their dreams. But when his nighttime appearances take a nightmarish turn, Paul is forced to navigate his newfound stardom, in this wickedly entertaining comedy from writer-director Kristoffer Borgli and producer Ari Aster.
This whole concept is quite interesting. Why is Paul in everyone’s dreams and nightmares? What makes him such a special person? Why is this happening at this particular point in his life? We all know that A24 is masterful at these types of stories, so the answers will likely surprise us. And who doesn’t love to see Nic Cage being very weird and funny? Cage is starring in whatever floats his boat nowadays, so we might as well go along for the Dream Scenario ride.
In addition to Nicolas Cage, Dream Scenario stars Julianne Nicholson, Michael Cera, Tim Meadows, Dylan Gelula, and Dylan Baker. The film will hit select theaters on November 10 before getting a wider release on November 22.
