Five Young Comedians Seen on the New 'Grown Ups' Banner

Adam Sandler

Didn't we just see a young Adam Sandler in Funny People? If you went to the movies recently, you might've seen this new banner for Dennis Dugan's comedy Growns Ups starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and David Spade. The banner has five very young-looking photos of all five of those comedians to make people interested in seeing how these five "friends" will act as grown ups. We featured the first teaser trailer for this back in November. While it wasn't a very long trailer, I thought it looked like it could be good. Even if you're not interested, it's still pretty cool seeing these photos. I wonder if they're real?

Grown Ups Banner

Thirty years after their high school graduation, five friends reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Grown Ups is directed by long-time comedy director Dennis Dugan, of You Don't Mess with the Zohan, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, The Benchwarmers, National Security, Saving Silverman, Big Daddy, Beverly Hills Ninja, and Happy Gilmore previously. The screenplay was co-written by Adam Sandler, Tim Herlihy (Bedtime Stories, Mr. Deeds), and Fred Wolf (Dickie Roberts, Without a Paddle). Sony is bringing Grown Ups to theaters everywhere on June 25th, 2010 next summer. Is this movie growing on you at all?

"I wonder if they're real?" What else would they have done?!

"I wonder if they're real?" I've said it before and I'll say it again: You guys are morons.

#2 & #3 - Uhh, this IS Hollywood, they could've found look-a-likes or just used CGI or Photoshop. They look real, but you never know. People asked the same question about The Fourth Kind backstory (was it real?). Turns out it wasn't. Hollywood fabricates a bunch of bullshit. You never know!

this is one of the many ensemble movies coming out next year (this one has 5 famous comedy actors) the other two ensemble movies are valentine's day (a whole bunch of famous romantic comedy actors) and the expendables (a lot of famous action stars)

Ok.... so you guys are saying you think these pictures are fake... that the studio decided that paying a firm Thousands of dollars to physically create new pictures vs asking each actor for a picture. What is more plausible. Why do you have to ask.

I just looked at the trailer again.... the young actors in the movies do not resemble these pictures. So they look like real enough to me... and I am taking them as such. I don't care if there really is a conspiracy behind these pictures that they are fake but made to look real. I don't need to waste any braincell worrying about it.

Alex I'd say that they are real. Funny how Chris Rock still looks the same today!!

Wheres Collin Quinns photo?

who cares if the pics are real or not? movie will still suck.

Wow! David Spade is kinda lacking in variety when it come to haircuts, isn't he? Love the Sandler pic, but I gotta agree with #10. This movie is bound to suck.

Chris Rock's picture is not as old as the others, he said his teeth were messed up as a kid so he was probably self-conscious of it and gave them a picture from what looks like his SNL days or something.

The shots are real. I work at the design firm that produced the banners. The actors sent in a few shot of themselves as kids. Then we built various concepts based around the pics. Now can we all move on with our lives.

no doubt that's chris rob, adam and david pretty much still look the same. KJ was a cutie
