Uncut Gems Trailer

"You like to win, right? This is no different than that. This is me. This is how I win." A24 has dropped one final, 60-second trailer for Uncut Gems, which is already playing in theaters nationwide right now. This is an obvious tactic to boost awareness and attention - right as the Oscar voting starts, and as more people find out about this movie (since it still is an indie flick). Set in the diamond district of New York City, Adam Sandler plays Howard Ratner, a jewelry store owner and dealer to the rich and famous, who must find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken by one of his top sellers. He "must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win." Also with Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian, & Judd Hirsch. It's an anxiety-inducing, intense NYC film but still worth seeing at least once.

Here's the second & final trailer for Benny & Josh Safdie's Uncut Gems, direct from A24's YouTube:

From acclaimed filmmakers Josh & Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win. Uncut Gems is directed by American filmmaking brothers Josh & Benny Safdie, directors of the films Daddy Longlegs, Heaven Knows What, and Good Time previously. The screenplay is written by Josh & Benny Safdie, with Ronald Bronstein. This originally premiered at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals this fall. A24 will release the Safdie Brothers' Uncut Gems in select US theaters starting December 13th. Now playing nationwide. Follow @uncutgems for more. Want to watch?

This one might be something new for Sandler and could convince someone that he should do other kind of films and not just those silly and despicable comedies I just have no reason to watch ...

Check out Punch Drunk Love. He was pretty good in that even though I didn't really like the film. I didn't hate it either, but.....

Oh, I did and I liked it, mostly. One of those films which made me think that he could make different kinds of films from what he usually does. But I'm afraid, that happens only occasionally ... This one will be probably the same, something indecisive in some way ...

I also liked him in Spanglish and thought he was terrific in it. I also really liked that film even though many did not. Their loss is my thinking on that...lol...

Right, a good call. Spanglish was great. And that beautiful Spanish actress in it, Paz Vega, was a real treat. Definitely loss for those who didn't see it ...

I've heard a lot about this movie and have yet to see any clips. In fact, I had dinner with a group of people last night and several had seen the whole thing. Their comments were pretty much what I've been hearing...that Sandler is really a stand out in it, but the movie is a mess. He sure looks different in this trailer. Especially in that last shot. One guy, who is an aspiring filmmaker himself, really liked the movie though. So there's that. As always this is really one that must be seen for yourself to ascertain if it 's good or not...or you like it or not.

Such hype for this movie. I really hope Sandler decides to make more dramatic film.
