Check out the official trailer to arrive for upcoming feature Uncut Gems, a crime thriller starring Adam Sandler.
The movie has Sandler playing Howard Ratner, a New York City jeweler who finds himself in hot water after making some very big bets in his pursuit of the next big score.
Directors Josh and Benny Safdie had an on-fire Robert Pattinson chasing money during one bad night in the fantastic Good Time (our review of that one is HERE), and their follow-up looks like another tense, character-driven thriller. The reviews that have come from the film’s screenings at the Telluride and Toronto film festivals have been full of praise, calling this an ultra-kinetic, breathless film with a great performance by Sandler. We can’t wait.
Uncut Gems, also starring Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, and Eric Bogosian, will be getting a limited US release on December 13 before going wide on December 25.
Official synopsis for Uncut Gems:
