Nicolas Cage is in Next

Nicolas Cage is in the movie Next. He plays Philip K. Dick's "Golden Man" from the novel. His character has the ability to see into the future and see possible outcomes of an event. He of course, is tapped to help save people's lives, but of course, this plan doesn't quite go as planned, and the protagonists end up being involved in events that will ultimately, potentially be harmful or lethal to them. Of course, Nick Cage's character already knows what's going to happen. The problem is that all the possible endings are all bad. What to do next?

If you've ever watched one of the sci-fi movies of Tom Cruise or Ben Affleck, you'd see that the premise of this movie is not new. Seeing into the future and knowing what's going to happen always gives a kind of tension in a movie that begins from the very start. But in such movies, what really matters is the ending. Look at the picture above with Cage and Jessica Biel. I'll bet you have an idea of what's going to happen next. By the way, the film also stars Julianne Moore.
