Adam Sandler Walks In Your Shoes In New Trailer For The Cobbler

18 February 2015 2:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Image Entertainment has dropped a new trailer for Adam Sandler’s next movie, The Cobbler. Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent), the film revolves around a lonely shoesmith named Max Simkin, who one day finds himself endowed with a mysterious gift.

Keeping in line with his profession, the film quaintly expands on the mantra ‘walking in someone else’s shoes.’ As a shoe repair man whose business has been in the family for generations, when Simkin stumbles across a magical item, he finds himself able to slip on another person’s shoes and actually become them. What’s not explained through this fantasy plotting, is what actually happens to the real person who owns the shoes. Sandler isn’t really becoming them is he? He’s just himself – in their bodies, right?

Regardless of the details, the second trailer delves into a few elements missed in the original preview. »

'The Cobbler' Trailer: Adam Sandler Steps Into A New Life

18 February 2015 11:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Never judge a movie by it's premise.

Image Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Cobbler. Maybe it will change your mind about what the film actually is, or isn't.

The story follows Max Simkin (Adam Sandler), who 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.

Photo: Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton in Spotlight, About Catholic Church's Cover-Up of Pedophile Priests

8 February 2015 3:15 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Today we have the first photo from the upcoming "Spotlight" film, starring Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, and John Slattery. Check it out below. The movie is based on a story by the Boston Globe that investigates the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts. Boston Globe's team of reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-up by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests and opened the floodgates to other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world that still reverberate today. "Spotlight" is directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor). A release date has yet to be announced. Photo: (click to enlarge) »

'The Cobbler' International Trailer Starring Adam Sandler

2 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three months after the domestic trailer debut for The Cobbler, an international trailer has arrived with new footage from this upcoming comedic drama. Adam Sandler stars as Max Simkin, who 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.

As you can see in the new footage, this enchanted heirloom not only allows Max to literally become his customers, it creates an awkward doppleganger situation when he runs into the man whose shoes he's wearing, Ludlow (Method Man). He is also given the power to bring the dead back to life, turning him into a makeshift zombie, »

Adam Sandler is a Sad Sack Shoe Man in UK Trailer for 'The Cobbler'

2 February 2015 8:07 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You are a guardian of souls. You are the cobbler." No, The Cobbler isn't the latest hero to join The Avengers, but once you see the kind of powers Adam Sandler obtains as a shoe repair man, it'd be hard to argue against his usefulness in a way. The film from Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent) follows Sandler as the titular character who finds himself with the power to literally walk in other people's shoes; when he puts on their shoes, he becomes them. It starts off as innocent fun, but then causes trouble after taking money from one of his customers. It all feels very silly and not really what we hoped for. Watch? Here's the new UK trailer for Thomas McCarthy's The Cobbler from Yahoo UK: You can still watch the previous international trailer for The Cobbler right here. The Cobbler is directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, »

Thanks for Noticing, Golden Guy: Top Ten Oscar-Nominated Actor Acknowledgements

25 January 2015 1:16 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 87th Academy Award nominations for 2015 were recently released on January 15, 2015 representing the excellence in film for the previous year. Naturally there was the standard controversy regarding those films and performances that got unfairly overlooked. Unfortunately, the perceived snubs do happen from year to year so this goes along with the territory. Nevertheless, the lucky selections that do manage to grab Oscar’s attention are understandably grateful and psyched to see if the golden statuette will in fact go home with them on the film industry’s biggest and most elegant evening.

With the obvious crankiness of Oscar omissions aside and the injustices that go with these “reel” deals has anyone ever considered the Academy Award nominees that are surprisingly recognized that could have gone unnoticed for whatever reasoning? After all there are films and exceptional performances that get lost in the shuffle but manage to get the accolades it »
