Nicolas Cage-a-thon to hit the 2018 Melbourne International Film Festival

With the huge success of last year’s all night Sci-Fi Marathon, the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) are set to bring the ultimate marathon to this years outing at The Astor Theatre; 12 hours of uninterrupted Nicolas Cage (Con-Air, Face-Off) awesomeness on 10th August.

Perhaps he most meme-able actor of his generation, actor Ethan Hawke (Training Day) has gone on record saying that Cage is “the only actor since Marlon Brando that’s actually done anything new with the art” while director David Lynch (Twin Peaks) named him the “jazz musician of acting”.

While the full Cage lineup remains a mystery, fans can expect to find out along with MIFF’s full program launch Tuesday 10 July.
