The First Trailer for Adam Sandler and Chris Rock's Netflix Movie Is Here

The first teaser for Adam Sandler'snext Netflix comedyThe Week Of, is here, and though the name makes it sound like the much-anticipated sequel to HBO's The Night Of, it's more like Hot Comedians in Cars Fussing Over Air Conditioning.

Here's the official summary: "When two very different fathers (Sandler and Chris Rock) come together [during the week of preparation leading up to] their children's wedding, everything that could go wrong, does."

Namely the air conditioning, but also a small bird flees, someone screams, and Steve Buscemi endures a very painful hug.

Sandler co-wrote the movie with Robert Smigel (of Saturday Night Live and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog fame), a talented comedian who's finally making his directorial debut here. The Week Of was originally set as the last project in Sandler's first deal with Netflix, but he semi-recently re-upped for four more. (Sandy Wexler-heads, rejoice.)

This wedding from A/C hell arrives, a little over 20 years after the release of The Wedding Singer, on April 27. Netflix users have apparently spent more than half a billion hours watching Sandler-related content on the platform, so we can only imagine what milestone he'll hit in 2018.
