Adam Sandler is a Sad Sack Shoe Man in UK Trailer for 'The Cobbler'
"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 originally from Yahoo UK:
You can also still watch the previous international trailer for The Cobbler right here.
The Cobbler is directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent, The Visitor) from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Paul Sado. Following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, Max (Adam Sandler) runs a charming if rundown shoe repair shop on the Lower East Side of New York City. Happy being his own boss, Max nonetheless feels mired in his daily routine and yearns for something he can’t name. One day, in the shop’s dusty basement, he stumbles across a forgotten family heirloom with magical powers that allow him to literally step into the lives of his customers. Dustin Hoffman, Method Man, Melonie Diaz, Ellen Barkin, Dan Stevens and Steve Buscemi also star in the film arriving in theaters on March 13th.
This actually looks good, seeing is how Sandler hasn't done anything worthwhile in a long time. Have to make the final decision after I see it though. Here's for hoping.

His best role in a decade was playing himself in Top Five.
