PRESS STATEMENT FROM COLUMBIA PICTURES:
"The cast of Columbia Pictures' new comedy Grown Ups 2 led by Adam Sandler attended the film's recent New York premiere.
"Gracing the event are cast members Salma Hayek, Taylor Lautner, Alexander Ludwig, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Nick Swardson, Milo Ventimiglia and Shaquille O'Neal.
“Grown Ups 2 is directed by Dennis Dugan and produced by Sandler and Jack Giarraputo.
"In the film, after moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny (Sandler), finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers—sometimes crazy follows you.
"Sandler’s most successful comedy in his long career, the 2010 film Grown Ups took the box office by storm as audiences laughed their way to more than $260 million worldwide. Remarkably for a comedy star, Sandler has proven equally popular at home and abroad—the film took in over $100 million overseas. So, after more than ten years of blockbuster comedies, Sandler is doing something he’s never done before: a sequel.
