According to reports, Nicolas Cage’s action comedy-drama ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’, released in the USA on 22 April 2022 in more than 3000 theaters, collected $2.90 million on opening day and $7.13 million on opening weekend at the domestic (USA & Canada) box office. Overall, ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ has so far collected $19.50 million domestically, $7.37 million overseas, and has a total grossed $26.87 million global[1] against the budget of $30 million.

Compared to the budget, the opening weekend box office of ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ was not well. But it’s also not too disappointing because, before the release, critics expected only a $5 million opening weekend from this film, but despite clashes with big films like ‘The Bad Guys’ and ‘The Northman’, ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ has overperformed the expectations at the box office with $7 million opening weekend. But unfortunately, the so far box office of the film is not enough to become a successful film against a $30 million budget, and sorry to say, while receiving positives reviews, ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ is a box office failure.

Talking about critical responses, then ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ received a 7.4/10* IMDb rating, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 86/100% based on 266 reviews.

  1. They did this movie and it’s cast a disservice by casting Nicholas Cage. They should know by now that Mr. Cage is box office poison.

  2. This is NOT a box office flop! $24 million worldwide against a $30 million budget so far–that’s pretty good for a comedy. It may yet break even.

    1. Hopefully the dvd release will help the bump up. At least get there money back. Sadly lionsgate did not make money on it thus far. From a business perspective, there are no margins in the black.
