The first official trailer for the Safdie brothers directed film sees Adam Sandler as a New York City jeweler who gets mixed up in gambling away other people’s money. The trailer for Uncut Gems shows Sandler in a race against time to fix the wrongs that he’s made with the gambling, as well as keeping his business running. It seems like this will be a high intensity from the pace of he trailer. Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, and Julia Fox star. Uncut Gems hits theaters December 25.
Sandler doesn’t often veer away from comedy, and from the trailer there seems to be a bit of humor in this movie, but he usually excels in dramatic roles. That looks like it will be the case with Uncut Gems. I’m also excited to see just how much acting Kevin Garnett does in the film, as well as seeing Idina Menzel stepping away from voice work for her role in this movie.
