Uncut Gems trailer: Adam Sandler is a mess as a desperate, compulsive gambler

Uncut Gems (2019)
Dir: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie | Cast: Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, The Weeknd | Writers: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie, Ronald Bronstein

One of the most talked about films on the festival circuit over the past month has been the new comedy/drama from Benny and Josh Safdie, Uncut Gems. Partly because Good Times was so electric, partly because it stars Adam Sandler reminding us why he is always so great outside of his broad comedies, but mostly because it is a pretty great film (according to critics attending Telluride and TIFF). It could see Sandler mixing it up in award season and the Safdie’s getting more love in commercial circles. The first trailer for Uncut Gems has just been released, so hit play above.

An electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner, a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.

The Safdie brothers also wrote the script, with Sandler supported by Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian and Judd Hirsch.

Uncut Gems opens in US cinemas on December 13 and it's looking like early next year for the UK.
