Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler’s latest role as a long-married couple framed for murder has hit our senses with the first trailer for Murder Mystery dropping.
The Netflix film centres around Audrey and Nick Spitz, played by the actors, who find themselves on a swanky yacht, invited by a handsome and rich stranger (Luke Evans).
Of course there is no way they’re just going to enjoy a few whimsical days on the sea, oh no sir, as a fellow sailor, billionaire Malcolm Quince (Terence Stamp), is stabbed with quite the lethal knife on board one evening.
Before long, their fellow cruisers are pointing the finger at the American couple as Audrey and Nick realise they’re being set up.
With Nick’s skills as a New York City cop and Audrey’s boss ability (and love of murder mystery books…), the trailer launches into a montage set to Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do.
As one fan commented on the YouTube clip of the trailer: ‘It’s Cluedo: The Movie.’
You’re not wrong there, pal.
Aniston and Sandler most recently starred together in 2011’s Just Go With It and it’s fair to say this 2019’s reunion looks remarkably better. Sorry, but it’s true.
SNL-alum Sandler debuted the trailer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday before it was ferried out to the rest of the internet over the weekend.
The two actors filmed scenes in Italy, where they also hung out with George and Amal Clooney at their famous Lake Como house in their downtime.
What a life.
‘They made us homemade pizza, had an amazing time, I sat next to Bono. It was a good day,’ Sandler told DeGeneres of his time at Casa Clooney.
‘Every time I’m with Jennifer, something great happens because everybody loves Jennifer. I tend to stay at home and do nothing, and my wife is so much going, “Why didn’t I marry Aniston? Why am I stuck with you, man?” Even in Italy, she’s like, “You gotta leave the room, man”.’
Murder Mystery is on Netflix 14 June.
