Adam Sandler is back with another film, and it looks incredible.
The comedian is often criticised for his choice of movies, but Hustle has already got people very excited.
A keen basketball fan in real life, the film sees Sandler play a downtrodden scout for the Philadelphia 76ers, who spends his life travelling the globe searching for the next big star of the NBA.
Watch the trailer here:
The synopsis reads: "Stanley Sugerman's (Adam Sandler) love for basketball is unparalleled, but the travel weary Philadelphia 76ers scout who has higher ambitions of being a coach remains stuck on the road looking for the next unknown talent.
"His search around the world leads him to Spain, when he discovers Bo Cruz (NBA player Juancho Hernangómez), an incredible streetball player with a troubled past.
"Stanley and Bo connect on and off the court, with their passion for the game and as loving family men who want to prove they can win, in basketball and in life.
"With the support of Stanley's wife, Teresa (Queen Latifah), can the underdogs come out on top?"
As with Uncut Gems, it promises an incredibly powerful performance from Sandler.
The movie is set to land on Netflix on 8 June, and fans are looking forward to it already.
Writing on Twitter, one person said: "Adam Sandler yet again proving he could do this acting s**t in serious roles but he prefers comedy. Hustle looks f***ing amazing. Can't wait to see it."
Another chipped in: "Hustle has such 'Blind Side' feels! Adam Sandler fans cannot wait to watch him in this one."
"@AdamSandler can't wait for Hustle will be mint it just shows how much of a talented actor you are all the different roles you play," put a third
While another added: "Save this tweet, Adam Sandler is going to be nominated for the Oscar with Hustle."
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly. about the film, Sandler said the script spoke to him.
He told the outlet: "It had a lot of deep scenes that connected with me, playing a guy who’s just been working hard his whole life and not getting exactly what his goal was, being overlooked and people at work getting in his way.
"A lot of people have dealt with this in their life. I knew this movie was a different feel for me, but it’s kind of a combination of stuff I’ve done in the past and a newer version of who I am."
He also likened the movie to another sports classic.
Adding: "It’s very much a Rocky story and I’m not Mickey in it – there’s never gonna be another Mickey – but I like being that kind of guy, getting to talk to a young man and getting him fired up."
