UNCLE DREW in the house

uncle-drew-in-the-house

If you haven't seen a geriatric comedy this year, we have one for you right here. Uncle Drew features Kyrie Irving, Shaquille O’Neal and Tiffany Haddish in a comedy that features a lot of jumps, twists and turns. The movie premieres this summer and you can watch its trailer below.

Uncle Drew already has a few cards up its sleeve even though it hasn't seen much buzz: a talented cast, a few funny jokes from what we can tell from the clip, and some really bad makeup, which might play either way, in the end. Lil Rel Howery plays Dex, a down-on-his-luck guy who puts together a geriatric basketball team to enter a street ball tournament and regain the respect of his community.

The movie is directed by Charles Stone III, who helmed Drumline, Step Sisters and Lila & Eve, and written by writer Jay Longino (Skiptrace). Uncle Drew is produced by Temple Hill in association with Pepsi Productions. The project was originally a five-year fan-favorite digital episodic series that was initially conceived by Pepsi (released in May of 2012) and has now been turned into a feature-length film. You can watch the series below, as well.

Uncle Drew, starring Kyrie Irving, Lil Rel Howery, Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Chris Webber, Erica Ash, Lisa Leslie, with Tiffany Haddish and Nick Kroll, opens on June 29, 2018.

Stay tuned and watch the Lionsgate trailer below.

And the previous Pepsi series:

Official Uncle Drew synopsis reads:

After draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, Dax (Lil Rel Howery) is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks, including losing his team to his longtime rival (Nick Kroll). Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend UNCLE DREW (NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The two men embark on a road trip to round up Drew’s old basketball squad (Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win the big one.
