Netflix Drops Trailer For New Adam Sandler Movie Where he Explores Space With Giant Spider

Adam Sandler is taking a dramatic turn away from his typical comedic roles with his latest film, “Spaceman.” Netflix has released the full trailer for the highly anticipated movie, following a teaser last month. The film, set to make its worldwide debut at the 74th Berlin International Film Festival on February 15 and release on Netflix on March 1, is based on the 2017 science fiction book “Spaceman of Bohemia” by Jaroslav Kalfar.

“Spaceman” narrates the story of Jakub (played by Adam Sandler), an astronaut six months into a solitary research mission at the edge of the solar system. As Jakub grapples with the realization that the marriage he left behind on Earth might not be waiting for his return, he encounters a mysterious creature hiding in his ship. The creature, Hanuš, voiced by Paul Dano, assists Jakub in understanding what went wrong in his life before it’s too late. The new trailer reveals that this enigmatic creature is, in fact, a giant spider.

Fans have expressed their excitement to see Sandler in a drama role, drawing parallels to his performance in “Uncut Gems.” One fan remarked, “Adam Sandler is underrated in drama roles. He knocked it out of the park with Uncut Gems like Jim Carrey did in The Truman Show. The funniest people on the planet live in the darkest corners. I’m excited to see Sandler in a serious role again. I’m happy for him.”

The film’s plot is inspired by the novel “Spaceman of Bohemia,” which follows Jakub Procházka, the Czech Republic’s first astronaut. Jakub embarks on a dangerous solo mission to Venus, seeking heroism and a chance to atone for his father’s sins as a Communist informer. However, in doing so, he realizes too late the sacrifices he’s made, particularly the love of his devoted wife, Lenka.

While it’s unclear how closely the film will adhere to the novel’s plot, “Spaceman” promises to be a unique and thought-provoking journey, blending Sandler’s talent with a story of ambition, sacrifice, and the unknown realms of space. As fans eagerly await the film’s release, “Spaceman” is poised to offer a compelling narrative that showcases Sandler’s versatility as an actor.
