UNCLE DREW Trailer
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.
Uncle Drew is the first feature length film about the fictional street basketball legend as portrayed by NBA star Kyrie Irving in a string of Pepsi Max commercials. Uncle Drew gets lured out of retirement by Dax (Lil Rel Howery), a young team manager who believes Uncle Drew still has what it takes to take on any team.
Dax believes Uncle Drew can win the basketball tournament to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Rucker Park basketball court. Uncle Drew agrees but only if he can pick his own team. As the tournament draws near, Uncle Drew and Dax travel the country to get the old gang back together.
Uncle Drew will be an exciting film to look forward for both basketball and comedy enthusiasts. The film boasts a cast that features NBA legends such as Reggie Miller and Shaquille O’Neal as well as comedy talent like Tiffany Haddish, Mike Epps, Lil Rel Howery and Nick Kroll. It’s been a while since we had a basketball comedy like Space Jam, let’s hope Uncle Drew lives up to its potential.
Uncle Drew is directed by Charles Stone III and stars Kyrie Irving, Tiffany Haddish, Mike Epps, Lil Rel Howery, Shaquile O’Neal, and many others. It will be released in the U.K. on July 6th, 2018 and in the U.S. on June 29th, 2018. For international release dates click here.
