Adam Sandler struggles to make shoes in ‘The Cobbler’

18 February 2015 2:08 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After an underwhelming performance in last year’s Men, Women and Children, can Adam Sandler try to hit gold with another role outside of his usual comedies? It seems like the reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival don’t agree.

A new trailer for The Cobbler hit the web on Wednesday. The film stars Sandler as Max, a shoe repairman who stumbles across a pair of magical shoes that allow him to become other people depending on who wore them.

The film, which is directed by Win Win‘s Thomas McCarthy, was hit hard by critics when it premiered in Toronto. Indiewire said that it “misses its marks wide and often, almost from the first frame. To say that it’s in need of repair would only be the start of addressing the multitude of problems the picture presents, because what it actually needs is a little more soul. »

6 February 2015 10:38 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last year, we heard about the new drama Spotlight, the latest film from Win Win and The Station Agent director Tom McCarthy. The film focuses on the story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe journalists who exposed the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of child molestation in Massachusetts, and a stellar cast was announced last year including Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery and more. Now they all appear, along with Brian d'Arcy, in the first photo from the film which takes its title from the Spotlight Team of reporters who discovered this story. Here's the first photo from Tom McCarthy's Spotlight from ScreenDaily: Spotlight is directed by Tom McCarthy (The Cobbler, Win Win, The Station Agent) who co-wrote the script with "The West Wing" writer Josh Singer. Michael Keaton, Liev Schreinber, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery, Brian d'Arcy, Stanley Tucci and more star in »

'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, »

Watch: Adam Sandler Fixes Shoes And Changes His Life In First Trailer For 'The Cobbler'

2 February 2015 5:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though the premise sounded Adam Sandler-esque through and through, we really had high hopes that with "The Station Agent" and "Win Win" director Thomas McCarthy behind the camera, "The Cobbler" might be a welcomed reprieve from the comic actor's usual schtick. We were wrong. A complete misfire and a total flop when it premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall (here's our review), you can now see for yourself how this thing turned out, with the first international trailer dropping today. Co-starring Method Man, Steve Buscemi, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, and Dustin Hoffman, the story follows a mild-mannered cobbler who discovers a magical stitching machine that allows him to inhabit the lives of people whose shoes he mends. This leads to romance, creepily stalking women, facing off against thugs, and though it's not mentioned in the trailer, a battle against gentrification. And yes, it's as messy as all of that sounds, »
