Netflix has released the first trailer for Adam Sandler’s upcoming Halloween comedy Hubie Halloween. Sandler takes on the role of Hubie Dubois, a man who is mocked by the people of his town of Salem, MA. He devotes his time every Halloween to make sure the town is safe, and this year, he has his work cut out for him as a real monstrous threat comes to Salem, and he is their only hope.
The movie looks like a classic Sandler funny family comedy. Sandler dives into his over-the-top cartoonish character mode and just has fun with it. I like it when Sandler plays these silly types of characters.
Hubie Halloween also stars Kevin James, Rob Schneider, June Squibb, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Chiklis, Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Noah Schnapp, Steve Buscemi, and Maya Rudolph. Here’s the Synopsis:
Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) thanklessly spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his town, Salem, celebrate safely and play by the rules. But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert. When people start disappearing, it’s up to Hubie to convince the police (Kevin James, Kenan Thompson) and townsfolk that the monsters are real, and only he can stop them.
Hubie Halloween is directed by Steven Brill (Heavyweights, Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, Without a Paddle, Drillbit Taylor, Walk of Shame, The Do-Over, and Sandy Wexler), and it will be released on Netflix on October 7th.
