Reign O'er Me trailer

Reign Over Me In writer/director Mike Binder's REIGN OVER ME, Adam Sandler is once again moving away from his usual schtick and flexing his acting muscle by playing Charlie, a soft-spoken, unassuming guy who's living in a grief-fueled daze after losing his entire family in the 9/11 attacks, but unexpectedly running into his old college roommate (Don Cheadle) puts him on the long, painful road to recovery. Moviefone recently premiered the trailer, which you can see over HERE. Will audiences accept Sandler's serious side this time as they didn't last time (that is, in PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE)? Or will he forever be stuck with the Jim Carrey curse where as much as he proves he's a genuine actor, he's still only accepted when he's in broad comedy mode? Check out the trailer and maybe strike back some thoughts. If you don't want to bother with Moviefone's video player, the official site has also posted the trailer HERE. The film opens March 9th.

Extra Tidbit: The film seems to be taking extreme caution to not be offensive, referring to the 9/11 attack as a "plane crash". Um, I think it's ok to actually say "9/11 attack".
