Sandler portrays Howard Ratner, a jeweller in New York City’s diamond district.
“When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win,” reads the film’s synopsis.
The trailer gives a first look at Sandler in his role as Ratner, with Idina Menzel stars as his partner Dinah Ratner.
Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Eric Bogosian, Lakeith Stanfield, Judd Hirsch, Paloma Elsesser and The Weeknd all appear in the movie, which was directed by brothers Joshua and Benjamin Safdie.
Back in September, Uncut Gems achieved a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a reviews aggregator.
The film’s rating has since fallen to 94 per cent, which is still notably high on the platform.
Uncut Gems, which is being distributed by A24 and Netflix, will be released in December.
