Sandy Wexler Trailer #2 Has Adam Sandler Stuck in the 1990s

16 February 2017 4:56 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the brief teaser trailer released last month, Netflix has now unleashed a full trailer for their upcoming comedy Sandy Wexler, starring Adam Sandler as the title character. This comedy marks the third movie in his four-picture deal with the streaming service, which has already yielded the 2015 Western The Ridiculous Six and last year's The Do-Over. While the comedy superstar reunites with several of his frequent collaborators, this movie shows Adam Sandler sharing the spotlight with Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson.

Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler) is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, diligently representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park. Over the course of a decade, the two of »

Adam Sandler Is Sandy Wexler In Bizarre First Trailer For Netflix Dramedy

16 February 2017 1:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following up on The Ridiculous Six and wildly over-the-top actioner The Do-Over, Adam Sandler is all set to execute stage three of his four-picture deal with Netflix in the form of Sandy Wexler.

It’ll premiere on April 14th, and in order to generate some semblance of excitement, the online streamer has today rolled out the really rather bizarre first trailer. Unlike The Ridiculous Six (Western) and The Do-Over (action/comedy), Sandy Wexler doesn’t quite know which genre it belongs to. Opening with a shot of Sandler as the bumbling talent manager, the footage above ranges from hammy melodrama to oddball comedy all in the space of two minutes, with cameos from the likes of Chris Rock to Conan O’Brien thrown in for good measure. Can it find an audience in two months’ time? It’s worth remembering that The Do-Over found its way into Netflix’s top »

Full trailer for Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie ‘Sandy Wexler’

16 February 2017 9:34 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix original film from actor Adam Sandler and tells the story of the titular character: a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.

The ‘90s was the decade of Bill Clinton, the Macarena, dial-up internet… and Sandy Wexler. One thing is for sure – Hollywood wasn’t ready for a talent manager like him.

Also starring Kevin James (True Memoirs of An International Assassin), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Nick Swardson (The Do-Over), Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers and Arsenio Hall; Sandy Wexler is directed by Steve Brill (The Do-Over) from a script by Sandler himself. »

Elle King Admits to Being ‘High Af’ at Grammys: ‘Note to Self, Don’t Eat Pot Muffins Before’

13 February 2017 11:12 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To put it bluntly, Elle King was on another level at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

On Monday, the singer revealed she was “accidentally high Af” during music’s biggest night.

Note to self, don’t eat a bunch of pot muffins before the Grammys red carpet,” King, 27, wrote on Instagram along with a screenshot of herself during a red carpet interview.

At the star-studded soireé, King, who attended Sunday’s show with country star Dierks Bentley, exhibited flower power with her Teuta Matoshi gown and a Lirika Matoshi floral crown, which she now regrets choosing.

Adam Sandler as a Talent Manager in Teaser Trailer for 'Sandy Wexler'

20 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Netflix has released a very short teaser trailer for a new comedy from Adam Sandler called Sandy Wexler, made by the director of Little Nicky. Adam Sandler plays a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. He ends up falling in love with a new client, a singer, who he discovers an amusement park. Jennifer Hudson plays the singer, and the cast includes Kevin James, Terry Crews, Lamorne Morris, Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers & Arsenio Hall. This is a very short teaser, and it's probably more than enough, because Sandler's Netflix comedies are really terribel and should be avoided. This seems the same. Here's the first teaser trailer for Steven Brill's Sandy Wexler, direct from Netflix's YouTube: The film follows Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler), a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, »

Here’s the trailer for Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie

19 January 2017 10:29 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 20, 2017

Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix project from Adam Sandler. Here's the trailer...

By our maths, Adam Sandler now has one more film to go until he’s completed his deal with Netflix for four feature films. So far, we’ve had The Ridiculous Six (not very good) and The Do-Over (not very good). And for his third movie, Sandler has put together Sandy Wexler.

See related  Games nobody talks about anymore: Renegade

He’s not made this one alone. He’s reunited with The Do-Over director Steven Brill for a start, and he’s co-written the screenplay with Paul Sado and Dan Bulla. In terms of casting,, you’ll find Jennifer Hudson, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Arsenio Hall Terry Crews and Lamorne Morris picking up paycheques on this one.

The film will land on Netflix in April, and we’ve got a trailer and a synopsis. »

Sandy Wexler Trailer Takes Adam Sandler Back to the 90s

19 January 2017 11:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Sandler is back yet again with another Netflix original movie. Sandy Wexler is the third of four comedies that were part of his exclusive contact with the streaming service. And this might be the best one yet. Which, I'm sure, some of you will joke that it shouldn't be too hard to top The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over, but those have been some of Netflix's biggest original movies to date. Today, we get the first trailer for Sandy Wexler, and it's pure Sandler gold!

Sandy Wexler will do for the 90s what The Wedding Singer did for the 80s, bringing a shot of nostalgia straight to the veins of the Millennial generation. Though, Sandler let this one simmer a little bit longer. The Wedding Singer arrived in 1998, not even a decade after the 80s had passed, and not everyone was as nostalgic for the era as some teens »

Coming Distractions: Netflix’s Sandy Wexler takes Adam Sandler back to the ’90s, when he was funny

19 January 2017 9:53 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s not much, but it’s here—that statement currently applies to the brief teaser that Netflix has released for Sandy Wexler, the latest in its line of Adam Sandler comedic products. We’ll have to wait to see just how prescient it is, though this advance look doesn’t bolster much confidence. It’s just Sandler in glasses as Wexler, a wannabe Hollywood player. He carries a print copy of Variety, which is how you know he’s in the business, and also in the 1990s. There aren’t too many other touchstones of Sandler’s second favorite decade in this glimpse, other than his frames.

Also notably absent are ’90s holdovers Kevin James, Nick Swardson, and Rob Schneider. Jennifer Hudson co-stars as Sandy’s client and improbable love interest, whom he’ll presumably help land a guest role on Friends or something. Or maybe she’ll audition »

‘Sandy Wexler’ Teaser Trailer: Adam Sandler and Jennifer Hudson Head Back to the ‘90s For Netflix Movie

19 January 2017 9:01 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2014, Netflix signed a deal with Adam Sandler to star in and produce four films for the streaming service. The first movie in the pact was “The Ridiculous 6,” which was torn to pieces by critics, though Netflix later stated it was the most-watched movie on the platform in its first 30 days of availability. Then came “The Do-Over,” again panned by critics, and now we have the first teaser trailer for his third offering, “Sandy Wexler.”

This time around Sander stars as the titular character, a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the ‘90s who represents a group of eccentric clients in show biz. His devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), an incredible singer who he discovers at an amusement park.

The first teaser introduces audiences to Wexler crashing a movie scene and being ushered out. »

Newswire: Kenya Barris is remaking White Men Can’t Jump

17 January 2017 2:04 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a White Men Can’t Jump remake is on the way from Mortal Media partners (and pro athletes) Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil. This is especially good news in a week that’s already seen one fundamentally flawed attempt at mending race relations in this country. Ron Shelton’s original film showed Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson settling their differences on the paint, even as Harrelson’s character comes to accept that he cannot, in fact, dunk (this hasn’t quite proven to be an immutable truth across his demographic).

Obviously, we need a White Men Can’t Jump remake more than ever, to show how black and white people can work together to hustle other half-court players. Besides, Rob Schneider lacked awareness and knowledge of beginner’s American history, while the White Men Can’t Jump remake has tapped Black-ish creator Kenya Barris to »

Rob Schneider may have bitten off more than he could chew after attempting to explain Martin Luther King Jr. to civil rights leader John Lewis. Lewis recently told reporters he would not be attending the upcoming inauguration since he doesn’t “see Trump as a legitimate president.” The U.S. President-elect fired back on Twitter, over the weekend […] »

Rob Schneider Ripped for Lecturing John Lewis About Mlk

16 January 2017 12:48 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Rob Schneider had a dream about spreading a message of unity. Unfortunately it turned into a nightmare once that message hit social media. “Saturday Night Live” alum Schneider was eviscerated on Twitter on Monday after he used Martin Luther King Jr. Day as an opportunity to lecture Georgia Rep. John Lewis. “Rep. Lewis. You are a great person. But Dr. King didn’t give in to his anger or his hurt. That is how he accomplished & won Civil Rights,” Schneider tweeted on Monday, in an apparent reference to Lewis boycotting president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration and calling the legitimacy of Trump’s election. »

Martin Luther King III, After Meeting with Donald Trump: ‘We’ve Got to Move Forward’

16 January 2017 12:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Martin Luther King III met on Monday with president-elect Donald Trump and tried to cool tensions over the weekend trading of insults between Trump and Rep. John Lewis, the civil-rights leader who marched and fought alongside King’s late father, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion,” said King on the national holiday celebrating his slain father and the civil rights movement he led. “At some point, this nation— we’ve got to move forward. People are literally probably dying. We need to be talking about how do we feed people? »

Danny Trejo’s life will soon be the subject of a new documentary titled “Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo.” Directed by Brett Harvey, the film will chronicle his tumultuous upbringings, from an early life of drugs, his time in prison, getting clean and his eventual rise to fame.

Trejo will give a a firsthand account of everything he faced in his past, to getting a second chance and changing his life, to becoming a movie star and giving back to the community.

“Today, Danny Trejo is temperate, benevolent and likely one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. But he wasn’t always this way”, said producer Adam Scorgie in a statement. “Growing up in the mean streets of Pacoima, California, he was raised and mentored by his uncle, a drug addict and armed robber. By the age of 12, he had tried heroin. By age 15, he was »

Marc Alan Fishman: Meetings With Remarkable Men

“I had a lovely brunch with Jesus Christ.

He said, “two words about inanity: fundamental Christianity,” yeah.

The food was very nice.

But then He had to go and die for my sins and stick my ass with the check.”

Just before 2016 died a fiery death, Unshaven Comics broke bread with ComicMix Eic Mike Gold and Living Legend John Ostrander. It wasn’t our first meal together, and assuredly it’s nowhere close to the last. We met for no better reason than to share a meal and a joyous time. Little did Mike know I was going to just go ahead and record the whole evening in my mind, and use it for this week’s article. I’m coy, don’t you know.

As with many interactions with Gold, barbecue was involved. We wound up at a north suburban Chicago joint with walls adorned in celebrity photos and »
