First TV Spot for Adam Sandler's Bedtime Stories - Updated!

September 17, 2008

The first footage from Adam Sandler's upcoming comedy Bedtime Stories has aired and can be seen below. This looks like a rather fantastical and magical film - the perfect Disney holiday movie. We haven't actually ever seen a trailer, but this is our first look at any actual footage and I must say it's a bit crazy. It looks like some combination of Zathura and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in addition to every other fairy tale you can think of. If you need a quick explanation behind the story, Adam Sandler plays a hotel handyman whose life changes when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to magically come true. We'll be featuring the trailer when it does hit, but for now check out this TV spot.

Watch the first TV spot for Bedtime Stories:

Bedtime Stories is directed by American filmmaker and long-time choreographer Adam Shankman, of The Wedding Planner, The Pacifier, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, and Hairspray previously. The script was written by Disney newcomer Matt Lopez, who also wrote the script for their upcoming remake of Race to Witch Mountain. Disney is releasing Bedtime Stories in theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th.

Doesn't look much like Adam Sandler to me.

Adam Sandler is absolutely AWFUL and Annoying!! He is the worst thing that has ever happened to Hollywood. They give this idiot so many movies they need to stop now! I'm sick of seeing his stupid face...
