VIDEO: Trailer Released for Adam Sandler’s Sci-Fi Movie Shot in Czechia

Perhaps spiders are not a nuisance after all — at least that’s the case for Adam Sandler in “Spaceman,” in which he receives emotional support from an oversized arachnid in outer space.

Netflix has released the trailer for Sandler’s upcoming sci-fi film, set to premiere at Berlin Film Festival next month. It will then release in select theaters on Feb. 23 and on the streamer March 1.

Directed by Johan Renck, who helmed the HBO miniseries “Chernobyl,” the film is based on the 2017 novel “Spaceman of Bohemia” (Kosmonaut z Čech) by Czech author Jaroslav Kalfař.

The film’s description reads, “Six months into a solitary research mission to the edge of the solar system, an astronaut, Jakub (Adam Sandler), realizes that the marriage he left behind might not be waiting for him when he returns to Earth.

Desperate to fix things with his wife, Lenka (Carey Mulligan), he is helped by a mysterious creature from the beginning of time he finds hiding in the bowels of his ship. Hanuš (voiced by Paul Dano) works with Jakub to make sense of what went wrong before it is too late.”

The trailer reveals that Sandler’s Jakub is 189 days into his solo space mission and struggling to cope with his isolation. When he meets Dano’s giant spider-like creature, Jakub says, “I’m losing my mind.”

“I wish to assist you in your emotional distress,” the talking spider tells Jakub.

In Prague, Spaceman shot at locations including the Desfours Palace by the Florentinum business complex, the Zelený Pruh swimming pool, Prague Congress Center, and areas in Radotín.

Outside of Prague, Spaceman also shot at locations in Marianské Lázně, Černošice, Bystřice, Slapy, Jetřichovice, Bernartice, the Branov campsit

In addition to Sandler, Dano and Mulligan, the cast features Kunal Nayyar, Lena Olin and Isabella Rossellini.

The script for “Spaceman” was penned by Colby Day. Producers include Channing Tatum, Reid Carolin, Peter Kiernan, Michael Parets, Tim Headington, Lia Buman and Max Silva. Executive producers are Ben Ormand, Johan Renck and Barry Bernardi.
