Adam Sandler is an actor rarely acclaimed by critics, only on occasions that come and go as solar eclipses. Judging by the response he received at the Telluride and Toronto festivals, Uncut Gems is one of those rare occasions.
The film, directed by brothers Josh and Benny Safdie (collectively known as the Safdie Brothers), has just released its first trailer, and it seems that the rumors are true.
Dam Sandler is accompanied in the cast by Idina Menzel (Frozen), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Eric Bogosian (Succession), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), and singer The Weekend and basketball player Kevin Garnett as themselves.
The Safdie Brothers movie has a limited US premiere scheduled for December 13, and more rooms will be added at Christmas. At the moment, there is no planned date for Mexico. However, the A24 films have had a good response in our country, and Sandler has a strong fan base here. We do not hesitate to see her soon here.
Uncut Gemsnos introduces Howard Ratner, a New York jeweler who has been in business for a long time, and suddenly starts making high-profile bets where a lot of money is played.
Already deep within the business begins a plummet in which you must take care of yourself, but also your family and your own business.
Anyone who has seen a Safdie movie will know that we are facing a race against time quite confusing and full of adrenaline.
These brothers, an interesting dumbbell like that of the Coen, usually push their actors to the limit, and it seems that Uncut Gems will not be the exception for Sandler.
Uncut Gems was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Sandler received good reviews for his starring and so far, the film has a 94 percent approval rating with 36 reviews.
The film will have its premiere on December 13.
The best “secret” kept in Hollywood is Adam Sandler, and the last proof of this is the movie Uncut Gems by brothers Josh and Ben Safdie. Why? It is well known that Sandler is a great actor (really good) in films that are not his own, and Uncut Gems of independent producer A24 is one of those. And precisely, they just released the new trailer for this thriller that could put Sandler on the map of the next awards … or we hope so.
Uncut Gems, as you can see in this preview, introduces us to Howard Ratner, a jeweler from New York who has been in business for a long time, so much so that he starts making very high profile bets in which a lot of money is played , I could lose everything. And this is how a plummeting fall begins in which you must take care of yourself, but also your family and business.
At first we mentioned that Adam Sandler should be on the map of awards for Uncut Gems, but we doubt that this will happen for several reasons. The first, because independent films barely make their way into ceremonies such as the Oscars and the Golden Globes (ask Toni Collette after Hereditary and Pattinson himself for Good Time). Second, because academies tend to refuse to give way to some artists and comedians such as Sandler (although there are also exceptions, such as Eddie Murphy in Dreamgirls or Jonah Hill in Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street).
