The Toronto International Film Festival has been over and done with for some days now, and all your favourite celebrities have left the 6ix and moved on to their next big events. This is pretty sad news, but there is some good coming out of it - we still get to see those movies that premiered at TIFF over the next few months! One film in particular that made it's debut this year has audiences VERY excited, and it stars a Canadian! When is Uncut Gems coming out? The film's trailer was released today.
Adam Sandler is the kind of actor who's known for playing the goofy dad in many of his movies (think Grown Ups, Bedtime Stories, etc.), but in Uncut Gems, he takes on the role of a completely different character - a New York jeweller named Howard Ratner who finds himself in some serious hot water after placing a series of high-stakes bets that will ultimately either make or break his entire life.
The film also stars Idina Menzel (because it's not an Adam Sandler movie if he doesn't have a very good looking significant other) as well as Canadian R&B singer Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd.

This is The Weeknd's formal acting debut, but based on the fact that Uncut Gems has scored a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes so far, we're assuming his work was good enough to win over fans. While in Toronto for TIFF, The Weeknd even solidified him and Sandler's bond by throwing a massive birthday party for his co-star.
Unfortunately, if you're itching to see Uncut Gems, you'll have to wait until it finally hits theatres on December 13. If you'd like to check out the trailer for the highly anticipated film, you can watch it below!
