‘Spaceman’ Trailer: Adam Sandler Is A Lost Astronaut In Sci-Fi Drama With Carey Mulligan And Paul Dano

It’s time for Adam Sandler to remind us once again that he is an incredibly talented dramatic actor when he wants to be. Three years ago it was announced that Sandler would lead Spaceman, a sci-fi drama from Chernobyl director Johan Renck. Well, after a long period of silence, not only is the film arriving sooner than expected, but we’re also getting our first look in a new trailer.

Sandler stars with Carey Mulligan, Paul Dano, Kunal Nayyar, Lena Olin, and Isabella Rossellini in the film about a lonely astronaut on a faraway research mission in outer space, while at home his marriage is falling apart. Fortunately, he has some help in dealing with all of this, and it’s a mysterious creature that lurks in the shadows of his ship.

Sounds pretty weird, right? Yeah, but also very cool and like something Sandler could really nail.

The film was penned by Colby Day, and adapted from Jaroslav Kalfař’s 2017 book, Spaceman of Bohemia.

Here is the synopsis: 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.

Netflix will begin streaming Spaceman on March 1st.
