Over the past 15 years or so, fans haven’t really been too kind to Adam Sandler’s body of work — at least, the critics and film snobs haven’t. His films may still be plenty profitable, but many of us have grown weary of his shtick. That being said, I don’t think anyone would ever deny the acting chops the actor has, as he’s proven time and again to be able to carry a serious film.
It looks like he’ll be doing just that in the A24 picture Uncut Gems. In the film, Sandler plays a high-stakes jeweler — though I won’t even pretend to know how the business works.
Do I know how jeweling works? Do I have the faintest idea about how placing bets on sports relates to jewelry? No, I know none of that. All I know is that Sandler looks like he’s killing it in this role, and the trailer has somehow made me interested in an industry I know nothing about.
What do you think of this new trailer? Are you as sold as I am? let us know down below!
Uncut Gems stars Adam Sandler, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, and Eric Bogosian.
