Nicolas Cage plays a “remarkable nobody” who goes viral when he starts popping up in countless people’s dreams in the trailer for Dream Scenario.

The A24 comedy feature is written and directed by Kristoffer Borgli (Sick of Myself) and produced by Ari Aster (Midsommar, Hereditary).

What Is Dream Scenario About?

“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,” reads the full description of Dream Scenario from A24.

“You’ve been on my mind recently. You keep popping up in my dreams. You don’t do anything, you’re just there,” a woman tells Paul at the beginning of the trailer.
