Back in May, we might have shocked you when we told you that Adam Sandler might get an Oscar nomination this year for his work in The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected). The dramedy, which is about an estranged, slightly dysfunctional New York family, received a four-minute standing ovation after it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
And critics were praising Sandler for his performance. As we mentioned in the post, Variety claimed Sandler could receive an Oscar nomination…
“Perhaps that’s why Netflix, which is in the Adam Sandler business, scooped up this relatively high-brow Scott Rudin production just weeks before its Cannes film festival premiere. Still, it’s odd to think that the company responsible for Sandy Wexler and The Ridiculous Six could conceivably earn Sandler his first Oscar nomination — and his best role since Punch-Drunk Love played Cannes in 2002.”
The first trailer for this film was just released, and it definitely looks like it’s going to be worth your time. Will Sandler get an Oscar nomination? Probably not, but maybe this will get him back on the right track.
It’s scheduled to hit theaters and be released on Netflix October 13, 2017. Make sure you check it out.
