The first teaser trailer for Netflix’s sci-fi drama Spaceman, directed by Chernobyl Emmy winner Johan Renck, was released Tuesday morning. According to all indications, Sandler’s Spaceman will be more serious in tone than any of his previous Netflix films. The acclaimed basketball pic Hustle in 2022 had a bit of dramatic heft, but he is best known for his dramatic chops in the Safdie brothers’ A24 crime thriller Uncut Gems, for which he won an Independent Spirit Award, among other accolades, as well as the classic, Punch Drunk Love, by Paul Thomas Anderson.

Most recently, Sandler made Netflix history with his new animated film Leo, which premiered on November 21st. The comedy titles You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah and Murder Mystery 2 also found success on the platform earlier this year. The following is the teaser for the film Spaceman – have a look.

Even though there are not a lot of plot points that are revealed in the teaser, the setup holds a lot of promise. Moreover, in a post on a blog shared by Netflix, Renck said of Sandler, “I really wanted to have a performance from him that had nothing to do with the Adam Sandler we all know.”
