Nicolas Cage in Dream Scenario

A24 shared the official trailer for Dream Scenario, a ‘razor-sharp comedy’ film starring Nicolas Cage as a hapless professor who becomes an overnight celebrity after appearing in everyone’s dreams and is showered with the attention he has long been denied.

Also starring in the film are Julianne Nicholson, Michael Cera, Tim Meadows, Dylan Gelula, and Dylan Baker.

Release Date

Written and directed by Kristoffer Borgli, Dream Scenario world premiered at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival and opens in theaters on November 10, 2023.


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 (Sick of Myself) and producer Ari Aster.


In their review, RollingStone wrote, “Part horror movie and part sideways swipe at cancel culture and social pariahdom, Dream Scenario is the sort of high-concept, surreal comedy that Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, and Charlie Kaufman used to do on the regular — think Eternal Nicshine of the Spotless Cage. If it lacks the emotional undertow that characterized those movies from the late Nineties and early aughts, Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli’s off-kilter satire makes up for it by marinating everything in a slightly noxious blend of silly and unsettling.”
