The first trailer for the upcoming crime thriller, Uncut Gems, has arrived and it stars Adam Sandler in one of his most serious roles in recent memory. Check it out.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Adam Sandler on the big screen or even in a serious movie. After spending quite some time releasing comedies with his actor friends on Netflix, Sandler has now turned his attention to a much more serious project, Uncut Gems.
Uncut Gems is directed by the acclaimed Safdie Brothers (Heaven Knows What) and tells the story of a New York City jeweler that makes a series of bets, some involving former Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett.
Here is the first trailer for Uncut Gems:
From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.
Uncut Gems releases in December starring Adam Sandler, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, and Eric Bogosian.
