First Trailer for Pixels

How many sh*tty Adam Sandler movies need to be turned out before studios finally learn to stay the hell away from him? Yes it's a bit harsh but it's true. There has only been like two or three films Sandler has been in that I have actually liked. I still think he deserved an Oscar nomination for his role in Reign Over Me, but other than that he has been putting out stinkbomb after stinkbomb. When I first heard the premise for Pixels, I was optimistic. It had an interesting concept and while I thought it could be good, a voice in the back of my head was telling me that this was going to be just another crap Sandler film. I thought it could be good with the talents of Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Kevin James, but we've seen Sandler work in groups before-- and that was called Grown Ups 2

This is just not a good trailer. The only thing I found interesting was how big budget it seems. From what I've researched, the budget was around $110 million, which is a lot of money to be given to guy like Sandler who has yet to put out a good movie in a long time. Some of spectacle in the destruction of the cities looked interesting, but if I just wanted to see cities being destroyed, I would watch Transformers. The one-liners were bad, the jokes were off and every single attempt at humor was a miss. Maybe this is just a bad trailer but it did not work for me.
