15-20 years ago, a movie starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock would be huge news, and it would most likely be getting a prime summer release date inside theaters across the nation. But this is 2018, and Sandler doesn’t seem to care about the box office anymore. He signed a long term deal with Netflix, and it’s clearly working for the both of them.
Sandler’s next film for the streaming giant is titled The Week Of. Sandler co-stars in the film with the always entertaining Chris Rock. According to the reports, this movie is about two completely opposite dads forced to spend a week together for the wedding of their children.
The trailer is pretty strange. It definitely doesn’t have that incredibly silly vibe most Sandler films have now. In fact, it’s kinda the opposite. Most of the trailer is spent inside a vehicle with Rock and Sandler, and it’s almost like watching a vlog. It’s filmed in a way that makes you feel like you’re not supposed to be there. It feels like we are intruding on their car ride together.
It’s pretty obvious that they just attached a camera to the car, placed Sandler and Rock inside, and then let them make comedy together. I can’t tell if I love it or hate it.
In addition to Sandler and Rock, this movie also stars Rachel Dratch and Steve Buscemi. It’ll premiere on Netflix April 27, 2018. Check out the trailer below…
