Adam Sandler As You've Never Seen Him Before — Uncut Gems Trailer

Sandler is electric, a charming and roguish presence who spends the entire two-minute clip riding the razor's edge of ruin. After he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard is forced to perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family and encroaching adversaries on all sides in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win. "This is my f-ing way", Sandler's Howard tells Garnett. The basketball star borrows the stone as a good-luck charm, and believing in the gem's power, Ratner bets on the subsequent Celtics game, a high-risk move. In theaters this December, the movie also features Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, and Eric Bogosian.

Uncut Gems' draw, of course, is finding out how-or if, having seen the Safdies' 2017 breakout Good Time-Howard is able to finesse his way out of these compounding jams. "And beyond just the beating he's about to receive that opening scene of violence still lingers too, leaving us with palpable tension as we're left to watch Howard's volatility, irresponsibility and neglect stack and all his plates begin to crash one-by-one".

I had some issues with the movie when I saw it at TIFF, but a trailer like this (along with the fact that most people I spoke to really liked the movie) makes me want to give Uncut Gems a second chance.

Josh Safdie & Benny Safdie directed the movie from a screenplay they wrote alongside Ronald Bronstein.

Outside of the film, Sandler could score his own win as Uncut Gems has already generated Oscar buzz for the actor's unlikely performance - which would mark Sandler's first Academy Awards nomination.
