Adam Sandler stops clowning around in dark new movie that will leave you feeling very uncomfortable

2014-08-20 10:27

Los Angeles – The trailer for Men, Women & Children ends with a chilling message that sends an uncomfortable tingle up the back of your spine.

"Discover how little you know about the people you know," it states as a crowd of people walks through a busy shopping mall while they are all busy on their mobile phones.

The dark new comedy-drama takes a look at the sexual frustrations that young teenagers and adults face in today's world.

Adam Sandlers kicks off his clown shoes as he takes on a much more serious role in this Jason Reitman film that takes a rather voyeuristic look into the online lives we live.

Sandler is joined by Hollywood heavyweights Jennifer Garner and Emma Thompson with newcomer Ansel Elgort, from The Fault in Our Stars fame, rounding off the odd cast selection.

The film is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival 2014 in September, with a limited theatrical release scheduled for 3 October followed by a wider release on 17 October.
