Via Boston.com. The trailer for Adam Sandler's new movie, "Uncut Gems," came out today, and I wasn't expecting it to look like that. I thought maybe I would see that classic Sandler "Waterboy" speak, but no, it's a tense drama.
Sandler plays Howard Ratner, a New York City jeweler who is constantly in trouble for all of his money making schemes. He's obsessed with gambling and the NBA and manages to meet Kevin Garnett, who plays himself in the movie. KG's 2008 Championship Ring also plays itself, as Ratner gets himself in a mess involving the ring and a big money wager on Garnett's performance in a playoff game.
There's already award show buzz about this movie. "Uncut Gems" comes out December 13th.
Check out the trailer, and Adam gushing about Garnett's acting chops while he looks all embarrassed...
