If there’s one Lionsgate movie that needs to be on your radar, it’s The Insufferable Weight of Massive Talent. We got to see footage of this movie during the screening at CinemaCon, and it looks fantastic. So it’s nice to see that Lionsgate has finally released elements of the film. They released six official images and a summary, while IMP price got hold of a poster. We’ll finally have the first trailer tomorrow too, and in terms of early 2022 releases? This one is right at the top of my list.
