The preview shows Sandler's character fight to recruit a once-in-a-lifetime player with a rocky past, played by professional basketball player Juancho Hernangómez.

"Do you love this game? I mean, love it with your whole heart," Sandler questions. "Because if you don't, let's not even bother. Let's not open that door. They're just gonna slam it right in our face."

"I love this game. I live this game," he says. "There's a thousand other guys waiting in the wings who are obsessed with this game. Obsession's gonna beat talent every time. You got all the talent in the world, but are you obsessed?"

Queen Latifah, Ben Foster and Robert Duvall also star.

Hustle is written by Taylor Materne and Will Fetters and directed by Jeremiah Zagar. Sandler produces with basketball star LeBron James.
