There’s a good chance you’ve seen the 5 Chapters of ‘Uncle Drew’.
The videos started as chapters that had Uncle Drew (Kyrie Irving) an old broken man who shows up to a pickup street ball game and then straight up own the kids. Irving was fantastic as an old man who would then all of a sudden pull off crazy dunks. Fast forward, the videos went viral and turned into a Pepsi ad on the NBA finals. Now, Pepsi is putting the old man into his own movie.
Dax (Lil Rel Howery) is struggling and he loses his entire team to his rival (Nick Kroll). Dax finds the legendary Uncle Drew and gets him to start playing with him, as long as Drew can pick his own team. He picks a group of old men out of the retirement home, which of course, happens to be basketball stars and legends Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, and Nate Robinson.
All in all, the film seems like it’s going to be a fun movie, and with Lil Rel and Tiffany Haddish, you know the movies going to be funny.
‘Uncle Drew’ releases June 29, 2018.
