Fathers face off in Netflix’s The Week Of trailer debut
Netflix has just released the official trailer for its original comedy movie The Week Of, starring Adam Sandler (The Meyerowitz Stories, Pixels) and Chris Rock (Top Five, Grown Ups). This lead-up to marital bliss is looking more and more like a countdown to a daddy throwdown, with the two veteran comedians playing the dueling dads of the bride and groom. Feel the familial tension rising when you watch the full trailer in the player below.
The Week Of tells the story of a devoted, middle class father (Adam Sandler) determined to pay for his daughter’s wedding despite the prodding of the wealthier father of the groom (Chris Rock). A series of calamities forces the dads (and their families) to come together and endure the longest week of their lives.
Joining Sandler and Rock are Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live), Steve Buscemi (Portlandia, Boardwalk Empire), Roland Buck III (Chicago Med) and Allison Strong (The Blacklist).
Robert Smigel directed the film, sharing writing duties with Sandler. Sandler also produced the movie along with Allen Covert.
Will these two families learn to come together or will the colliding egos ruin this marriage before it even begins? Find out when The Week Of launches on Netflix on April 27, 2018.
