Just in case the coronavirus scares off Halloween this yr, Adam Sandler has you lined.
The trailer for his newest Netflix comedy, “Hubie Halloween,” dropped on Thursday, promising quaint sweet corn. And you received’t have to depart your lounge. (See the preview under.)
Sandler performs the city geek who watches over Salem, Massachusetts, each Oct. 31 to forestall mischief. But many residents — together with the police (Kevin James, Kenan Thompson) — don’t recognize his vigilance.
This yr, although, Hubie’s on the path of a disturbing thriller, some monsters and his everlasting crush (Julie Bowen).
Hubie is like Bobby Boucher from Sandler’s “The Waterboy”: a funny-accented man-child who’s ridiculed and lives together with his mommy.
And he’ll be the hero right here, too.
Sandler took his shot at awards season glory in “Uncut Gems,” however the streaming large — which signed him to four more movies in January — ought to be simply effective with him in crowd-pleasing mode right here.
