Spaceman: Adam Sadler Explores Space With A Giant Telepathic Spider

Netflix has released the official trailer and a bunch of images from Spaceman, where Adam Sandler is alone in space with a giant telepathic space spider.

Article Summary

  • Adam Sandler tackles a unique role in Netflix's 'Spaceman' with a telepathic spider.
  • The film challenges Sandler's dramatic chops, acting opposite an unseen entity.
  • Paul Dano lends voice to Hanuš, the enigmatic space spider aiding Sandler.
  • 'Spaceman' is set to launch adventure on Netflix, debuting on March 1, 2024.

For all that people make fun of Adam Sandler, the man can absolutely do dramatic acting when he wants to, and sometimes he turns in performances that are so anxiety-inducing that you never want to watch it again while acknowledging that it is brilliant [see: Uncut Gems]. It's unclear if Spaceman will be good, but this does appear to be something that can make or break some of the best in the industry, and that is largely acting against no one or something that isn't there. We have seen academy-winning actors fail at pulling that off, so it will be fascinating to see if Sandler can pull it off and how much this film will rely on the supporting cast. We have the official trailer and some images, along with a good look at Hanus, a giant telepathic space spider voiced by Paul Dano. All right, bring it on.

Spaceman: Summary, Cast List, Release Date

Six months into a solitary research mission to the edge of the solar system, an astronaut, Jakub (Adam Sandler), realizes that the marriage he left behind might not be waiting for him when he returns to Earth. Desperate to fix things with his wife, Lenka (Carey Mulligan), he is helped by a mysterious creature from the beginning of time he finds hiding in the bowels of his ship. Hanuš (voiced by Paul Dano) works with Jakub to make sense of what went wrong before it is too late. Directed by Johan Renck and based on the novel Spaceman of Bohemia, the film also stars Kunal Nayyar, Lena Olin, and Isabella Rossellini. It will stream to Netflix on March 1, 2024.
