“Uncut Gems” is Adam Sandler’s newest movie that is drawing a lot of attention for the actor and its two filmmakers, the Safdie brothers. While it’s still in theaters, fans dying to see it in the comfort of their own home are in luck. The movie is arriving on Netflix sooner than you may think.

Netflix subscribers can expect “Uncut Gems” to release on the streaming platform later this month. The service currently lists Friday, Jan. 31, at 3 a.m. EST as the release date and time for the film.

“Uncut Gems” is about Howard Ratner (Sandler), a jeweler with a gambling problem who has to acquire an expensive uncut gem from basketball player Kevin Garnett, who plays himself, in order to pay off his debts with a loan shark that also happens to be his brother-in-law Arno (Eric Bogosian). His life begins to unravel as he gets more enveloped with the consequences of his gambling.

The film currently holds a 91% fresh critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is a massive box office success, grossing over $44 million since its December release, breaking A24 records, according to Variety. Its critical success was expected to earn Sandler his very first Oscar nomination. However, the film was left out of the 2020 Academy Awards entirely.

Before “Uncut Gems” hits Netflix, fans of the filmmaking team can also catch the Safdie brothers’ previous success “Good Time” for free on the Amazon Prime video streaming app. That 2017 film follows Robert Pattinson as Connie, a criminal who works directly with his disabled brother, played by co-director Benny Safdie. When Safdie’s character gets caught by police in a robbery gone wrong, Pattinson’s character sets out to rescue him in the crime thriller.

In the meantime, fans can also watch the Safdie brothers' recent collaboration with Sandler on the short film “Goldman v Silverman,” which is available for free on Vimeo.
