Jason Reitman’s next film Men, Women & Children is set for a limited release on October 3rd, and the first trailer has arrived. Adam Sandler leads an ensemble cast that includes Rosemarie Dewitt, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, J.K. Simmons, Ansel Elgort, and Emma Thompson. It looks like it’s going to be a dark film for Reitman as he tackles everyday issues of self-image, love, and technology effecting lives. It reminds me a lot of 2012′s underrated Disconnect (see that trailer below too); basically holding a mirror up to society and saying to put down the phone.
Here’s the official synopsis for Men, Women & Children:
“MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN” follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.
Men, Women & Children opens wide on October 17th 2014, watch the trailer below:
Tom McCarthy‘s (Win Win) next feature follow up The Cobbler was added to the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival line-up and with it we have some new images to share. The plot sounds somewhat similar to Sandler’s Click which had him in control of his life using a remote control; here he has the shoe on the other foot. Sorry.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Cobbler:
Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man’s shoes is the only way one can discover who they really are. Starring Adam Sandler, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, Dan Stevens, Fritz Weaver, Yul Vazquez, Steve Buscemi and Dustin Hoffman.
The film will screen sometime during the festival’s September 4th – 14th dates. Check out the images below:
I wasn’t going to post this at all, because we already had one insufferable trailer posted, but holy hell this is bad. You know those trailers where reaction shots from clips they are showing don’t seem to fit because of different background or clothes or time of day? This trailer has about 5 of those and a girl changing her hair and becoming hot because of it. What a message!
The gags are awful and the plot is one big gimmick to get to Africa – this just all around blows. Why did I expect better from these two? They did The Wedding Singer which I enjoyed, is this the best they could do? At least there is Terry Crews who will likely steal the movie.
Blended opens on May 23rd, watch the trailer below if you want:
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.”

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.

Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills.
