Adam Sandler Is a Husband Adrift in Space in ‘Spaceman’ Trailer

Adam Sandler is alone (and possibly seeing things) in his latest feature for Netflix, the sci-fi tinged Spaceman.

The meditative trailer follows the story of astronaut Jakub (Sandler), who is in the midst of a six-month solo mission to the outer reaches of the solar system.

Loneliness starts to get to him, and he begins to understand his marriage back on Earth may not be waiting for him at home. Along the way, a creature he discovers in the ship helps him understand where things went awry. The creature, who looks like a giant spider, may or may not be all in his head.

Carey Mulligan stars as Lenka, wife to Sandlers character, while Paul Dano voices Hanuš, the spider-like creature. Kunal Nayyar, Lena Olin, and Isabella Rossellini also star in the feature, based on Czech author Jaroslav Kalfař’s 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia.

Chernobyl director Johan Renck directed Spaceman from a script by Colby Day. It will get a small theatrical run on Feb. 23 before it streams on Netflix on March 1. Sandler has been a Netflix regular for years, most recently starring in You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, Leo and Murder Mystery 2.

The producers of his latest film are Channing Tatum, Reid Carolin, Peter Kiernan, Michael Parets, Tim Headington, Lia Buman, Max Silva.
