Adam Sandler’s next movie is a third comedy with Drew Barrymore called Blended, you can watch the trailer we posted here. If you’re like me and prefer Sandler’s dramatic roles (Punch-Drunk Love) over his more recent comedic roles, then good news is here.
He is set to star in director Tom McCarthy’s (Win Win, The Visitor) new film The Cobbler and the first image of Sandler in the film has been released as you can see above via EW. Sandler plays a lonely, modern day cobbler in New York City who feels like his life is going nowhere until he discovers a family heirloom that literally gives him the ability to “walk in another man’s shoes” and see the world differently.
McCarthy’s Cobbler is nothing like his other films, and sounds to be from his own experiences. “I lived above a shoe-repair shop in New York City that I used to walk by every day, and I always just kind of was fascinated with it, looking in and seeing an endless maze of shoes sitting around,” he says. “I was kind of thinking about the expression of, ‘You don’t know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes’ one day and what the origin of that was and what that would mean to translate that into a story.”
The film also stars Dustin Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, Method Man, and Dan Stevens.
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are coming back to theaters, together and sporting soup gags! Blended follows two single-parent survivors (Drew and Adam) of a particularly heinous blind date who happen to sign their kids up for the same African safari vacation — and end up sharing a suite for a week. The funny part of the trailer involves Terry Crews singing and dancing, check it out.
The movie also stars Joel McHale, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Kevin Nealon and Terry Crews. Blended hits May 23 2014, watch the trailer below:
Here is the first trailer for Grown Ups 2. I didn’t laugh once, I’m angry and I feel that I’ve lost something in my life. Why did they show a clip from the first movie? I’ve never seen this done in a trailer before, I don’t understand. The last “joke” in the trailer cuts to an obvious laugh from a different scene, that’s so lazy it hurts. Watch it if you want, I’m leaving.
The film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph, Nick Swardson and Patrick Schwarzenegger.
Grown Ups 2 opens on July 12th.
The all-star comedy cast from Grown Ups returns (with some exciting new additions) for more summertime laughs. Lenny (Adam Sandler) has relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises: the last day of school.
It’s a slow news day, what can I say? So Drew Barrymore is set to reteam with Adam Sandler for another comedy, they previously flirted in The Wedding Singer (good movie) and 50 First Dates (never saw it).
Sandler committed to star in the untitled romantic comedy for Warner Bros. with his Click director Frank Coraci. Variety reports that Barrymore has signed on to play the female lead in the story centering on “a couple who, after disastrous blind date, are stuck together in a family resort with their children from previous marriages.”

Back in November we shared with you some early sketches of Hotel Transylvania, an animated comedy directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack), we now have the first official trailer.

On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
No you’re really seeing this; it’s an R-rated comedy with Adam Sandler. That’s My Boy stars Sandler as a rich party animal (with a Boston accent?) who has to try and avoid going to jail for tax evasion. He goes about doing this by befriending his estranged and wealthy son Andy Samberg. Adam Sandler laughs a whole lot during this trailer; let’s hope it rubs off on the people watching it. His last R-rated comedy was 16 years ago with Bulletproof for those keeping score.
That’s My Boy opens June 15th.
While still in his teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), and raised him as a single parent up until Todd’s 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up. Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills.
There have been rumblings of a Fantastic Four reboot for a few years now, we had all hoped that it would all go away if we ignored it, no avail. 20th Century Fox seems to have faith in newcomer Josh Tank who is about to release his movie Chronicle next month for them [see trailer] He is the frontrunner to direct the reboot that once had Adrien Brody, Amber Heard, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Bruce Willis in the cast, so he’s got his work cut out for him.
In sadder news, Rob Schneider is going to work again. Sony Pictures plans to release on Grown Ups 2 on July 12, 2013. The first movie is Adam Sandler’s highest grossing movie of his career ($271 million worldwide). Co-stars Kevin James, Chris Rock, Schneider, and David Spade will likely return. This would be Sandler’s first sequel surprisingly, the original film’s writer, Fred Wolf, is in negotiations to write the script that would deal with one of five friends dealing with fatherhood.
If this isn’t a popular Internet meme yet, it’s going to be. This George C. Scott mash-up from the 1979 film Hardcore made me laugh. We showed you the awful trailer for the awful movie Jack and Jill last week [see], it left you feeling miserable I’m sure. So cheer up, watch this: [UPDATE: I didn't want to leave John Lasseter's face up all night as the top post, you're welcome].
You would think with the role he had in Funny People that Adam Sandler would choose roles a bit more mature; turns out he was just acting. In Jack and Jill Sandler plays two characters, and one of them is his sister…a movie ensues.
Jack Sadelstein, a successful advertising executive in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and kids, who dreads one event each year: the Thanksgiving visit of his identical twin sister Jill. Jill’s neediness and passive-aggressiveness is maddening to Jack, turning his normally tranquil life upside down.
The film is set to be released on November 11th 2011, check out the trailer.
