After months of amusing behind the scenes footage from the IG accounts of the actors, we finally have a trailer for the upcoming Uncle Drew movie, based off the popular Pepsi commercials starring Kyrie Irving.
The film also stars Lil Rel Howery (the critically acclaimed Get Out), Shaquille O’Neal (lots of not-so-critically acclaimed movies and the underrated Blue Chips), Tiffany Haddish (the hilarious Girls Trip), Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Chris Webber, Erica Ash, Lisa Leslie and Nick Kroll.
Here’s the plot of the comedy, which sounds like a mixture between White Men Can’t Jump and The Blues Brothers: 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.
