There are few faces on Netflix that have proved more popular than Adam Sandler. The comedy icon's films are always popular when they appear on the site, and his lucrative partnership with Netflix has produced some big results. Murder Mystery, which stars Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, is one of the most popular Netflix original movies of all time. Now, the Sandman and Netflix are teaming up to tackle the Halloween holidays with a new movie that arrives in October. The film is called Hubie Halloween, and the trailer has finally arrived.
Netflix released the debut trailer for Hubie Halloween on Thursday, offering fans the first extended look at what Sandler has in store for his next film. You can watch the trailer in its entirety at the top of the page.
