Trailer & Poster for basketball comedy ‘Uncle Drew’

by Phil Wheat

Set for release here in the UK in just over a month (and already deluging US airwaves with ad after ad) Lionsgate have released a new poster and trailer for Charles Stone III’s upcoming comedy Uncle Drew. The film sees basketball player Kyrie Irving reprising his role from the Pepsi Max advertisement, alongside Lil Rel Howery, Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Chris Webber, Erica Ash, JB Smoove, Lisa Leslie, Tiffany Haddish, Mike Epps, and Nick Kroll.

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.

Uncle Drew is set for release, in the UK, on July 6th.
