Max Simkin isn't the man he thought he'd be in the first trailer for The Cobbler, but this year he'll get the chance to become someone else.

Adam Sandler stars in this magical comedy, which follows a downtrodden shoe repairman who discovers he has the ability to step into other people's lives when he puts on their well-worn shoes. He decides to use his new-found power to change his own life, discovering more about himself in the process and winning the heart of a local neighborhood beauty. Complications ensue when he decides to bring his deceased father's (Dustin Hoffman) shoes out of the closet for a long-overdue visit.

Some of it is funny, some of it is heartbreaking, and some of it is down right creepy. Take a look at the first footage from The Cobbler, directed by Thomas McCarthy (The Station Agent).
