First Trailer: Kyrie Irving Is “Uncle Drew”

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have released the new teaser trailer for the comedy sports movie “Uncle Drew,” a feature adaptation of the five-year fan-favorite digital episodic series originally conceived by Pepsi and starring NBC All-Star Kyrie Irving in aged makeup.

After draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic streetball tournament in Harlem, Dax (Lil Rel Howery) is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks including losing his team to his longtime rival (Nick Kroll).

Desperate to win the tournament, Dax stumbles upon the legend Uncle Drew (Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The two men embark on a road trip to round up Drew’s old basketball squad (Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Chris Webber, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win the big one.

“Uncle Drew” will hit cinemas on June 29th.
