‘The Cobbler’ Trailer Features Adam Sandler and a Magical Sewing Machine

By

Adam Sandler’s next big dramatic role is the Thomas McCarthy-directed The Cobbler, and while it doesn’t have an official premiere date yet, the first trailer was released today. It’s a weird mix of serious and silly Sandler, but maybe with the help of its solid supporting cast (Dustin Hoffman, Ellen Barkin, Steve Buscemi, Method Man) it’ll do well? Considering Variety called this film a “slow-motion zeppelin crash that starts as a dull-edged fable, and then spirals further and further out of control without ever growing more exciting or interesting,” maybe don’t get your hopes up too high.
