Executive produced by Martin Scorsese :shock:

I guess I'm finally gonna have to watch Good Time. Ugh.

I heard they were going to do a remake of 48 HRS for Paramount. I think a third movie would be a better choice.

That's apparently still in the works, but this is coming first

Really "enjoy" the Safdies work, especially Good Time. Immediately fascinated by a film of theirs headlined by Sandler and Stanfield.

The production company inadvertently publicly posted a clip from the film on Vimeo. A Reddit user grabbed it and uploaded it there. Sandler is 100% doing a Pacino impression, as many commenters have already noted

Indiewire wrote:In an interview with IndieWire, TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey raved about the movie. “It’s probably the most Safdie movie you’ve ever seen,” he said. “It moves at a breakneck pace. It’s cranked up to 11 the whole time, it’s exhilarating to watch, Adam Sandler gives his very best performance since ‘Punch-Drunk Love’ and Kevin Garnett is in it, so it’s got something for everybody. They shot everything on [35mm] so even though it’s a bigger movie for them it’s got a real gritty quality.”

35mm is "gritty" now?

Typical festival head, doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Early reactions out of Telluride are split between people absolutely loving it and people finding it obnoxious, though everybody seems to agree that Sandler's great in it.

It seems to be like the reception so far has been uniformly glowing. It currently has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and 92% on metacritc. Granted there aren't many reviews so far but it's still reason to be excited.

I haven't seen the film, but this sounds pretty much on point with the reactions for Good Time, which did well critically but those who hated it hated it, and early reactions out of some test screenings used language akin to 'obnoxious.' I'll wait for DI and other festival-goers to weigh in, but my prediction is that one's level of affection for their last movie will mirror thoughts and feelings for this one quite closely, but that's just an impression. Personally I'm probably looking forward to this as much or more than anything else on the slate for this year.
