Back in October 2014, comedian/actor Adam Sandler signed an unprecedented deal with Netflix, with the actor set to develop, star in and produce four movies for the streaming service. The first movie in this pact was the Western comedy The Ridiculous Six, and earlier this year, we learned that the second movie would be The Do-Over, arriving May 27. Today we have the final red band trailer for this comedy, which features plenty of R-rated language, so be sure to watch at your own risk. We also have six new photos to check out as well.
The life of a bank manager is turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure. Adam Sandler plays Max, re-teaming with his old Saturday Night Live pal David Spade as Charlie, two life-long friends who are about to give their mundane lives a jolt of electricity when they reunite at their 25th High School reunion. The pair decided to wipe the slate clean for the ultimate 'Do Over'. So they fake their own deaths, and assume new identities. But will life really be that much better the second time around?
The supporting cast is rounded out by Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Luis Guzman, Michael Chiklis, Sean Astin, Catherine Bell, Natasha Leggero, Nick Swardson, Torsten Voges, Renee Taylor and Matt Walsh. While the movie won't be hitting the big screen, it will arrive on Netflix the same weekend that two highly-anticipated movies debut in theaters, 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse and Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass. We'll have to wait and see if The Do-Over can have any sort of impact on the movies opening at the box office over this long holiday as it goes streaming throughout the weekend.
The Do Over is directed by longtime Adam Sandler collaborator Steven Brill. The filmmaker is responsible for such Adam Sandler comedies as Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds. Steven Brill is directing from a script by Kevin Barnett (Hall Pass, The Heartbreak Kid) and Chris Pappas (Unhitched). Netflix hasn't revealed what the third and fourth movies in Adam Sandler's deal will be, so stay tuned.
Adam Sandler and David Spade first appeared together on the big screen in the 1993 comedy Coneheads. While they've cameoed in a number of each other's movies over the years, the pair headlined 2010's Grown Ups and its 2013 sequel Grown Ups 2. They also both lent their voices to the animated blockbuster smash Hotel Transylvania and its sequel. The Do Over will mark the first time the pair have teamed up as a comedy duo. Take a look at this final red band trailer and the new photos before watching The Do-Over on Netflix over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
