Adam Sandler, the comedy icon, is slowly sinking into more intense roles, and I have to admit that serious kinda looks good on him.
Netflix recently unveiled the official trailer of Sandler's latest project Hustle (2022), launching various basketball stars, including Boban Marjanovíc, and Aaron Gordon among others.
Sandler excitedly tweeted the film's poster along with its trailer, tagged with the caption, 'Love you all.'
The streaming platform also posted Hustle's trailer on Twitter with the logline, 'Do you love this game? Produced by @AdamSandler and @KingJames, Hustle-starring Sandler, @juanchiviris41, @IAMQUEENLATIFAH, @theantedwards and @TheJetOnTNT- premieres June 8.”
