Adam Sandler's latest film, "Spaceman," is set to be released on Netflix on March 1st.
Sandler has had success with Netflix, regularly releasing hit films on the streaming service.
While known for his comedic roles, Sandler has also received praise for his dramatic performances in films like "Uncut Gems."
Adam Sandler’s latest film is Spaceman, and the actor has been promoting the movie online, where legions of fans eagerly await its Netflix release on March 1st. Sandler’s foray with Netflix has been extensive, with the actor regularly releasing hit films on the streaming service, such as Sandly Wexler, The Ridiculous 6, and Hustle.
Known for his comedic roles, the comedian also changes gears and features in dramatic roles. He portrayed a maverick jeweller in 2019’s Uncut Gems, a role for which he was extensively praised. Sandler has had more than one standout dramatic role, and besides Uncut Gems, has been regularly expanding his repertoire and range by starring in films like Spanglish and Punch-Drunk Love.
Slapstick and Drama
The actor’s filmography mainly features slapstick comedies that are despised by critics but loved by general movie audiences. Still, he has shown that he is not simply a comedic actor but can carry a dramatic role as easily as being a funnyman. Spaceman will see Adam Sandler again in dramatic fashion, starring as astronaut Jakub Procházka, drifting to the solar system’s edge to collect special space dust on a lonely solo mission.
Sandler’s popularity as a film star jumped from feature films on the silver screen to Netflix and streaming. The actor’s name has almost become synonymous with Netflix, with Adam Sandler’s films regularly ranking as the streaming giant’s most-viewed releases. The actor appeals to the common man and, with each release, has boosted Netflix subscriber numbers far more than they would have been without his extensive involvement with the company.
Sandler has been winning over many hardened critics with his dramatic roles. However, his reputation for starring in low-brow, toilet-humoured films like The Waterboy, Jack and Jill and Little Nicky still lingers in the minds of many film watchers. For many of them, his films are repulsive, lacking in taste and without artistic merit. On the other side are general viewers and fans who find his humour entertaining and relatable. Adam Sandler’s brand has a tangible connection to the mass of everyday film audiences, which Netflix leveraged to boost streaming numbers.
Viewers can’t get enough of the Sandman’s films. And with Spaceman, Adam Sandler is set to star in his first dramatic science fiction role.
Will Sandler fans enjoy watching their favourite comedic actor as he drifts away in space, engaging with a talking spider? Perhaps so, or not; time will tell. The film looks intriguing and is based on a novel, Spaceman of Bohemia, by Czech author Jaroslav Kalfař. The movie has been described as “an intergalactic odyssey of love, ambition, and self-discovery.”
As Sandler and Netflix forge a bond that grows ever stronger, the actor continues expanding his palette, starring in more varied and exciting roles and films.
The 57-year-old is having the last laugh at the critics who panned his films. The actor has garnered a devoted following of people who love his films while appearing in films with an artistic flair that appeals to critics who are forced to praise the actor despite his reputation for low-brow comedy.
