Jennifer Aniston, America's absolute sweetheart, plays Nick Spitz's (Adam Sandler) wife Audrey Spitz, who meets a glamorous stranger on the flight and takes the plot forward with the stranger's murder
There's no faking it this time. Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are reuniting on screen, eight years after Aniston played Sandler's fake wife in the movie 'Just Go With It'. The upcoming Netflix original movie called 'Murder Mystery' will be out soon and the trailer has already started the buzz. The star-studded cast and the epic duo are back and here's everything you need to know about the upcoming mystery-comedy film.
The film will be available for streaming on Netflix on June 14.
The official synopsis of the film reads "When an NYC cop (Adam Sandler) finally takes his wife (Jennifer Aniston) on a long-promised European trip, a chance meeting on the flight gets them invited to an intimate family gathering on the Super Yacht of elderly billionaire Malcolm Quince. When Quince is murdered, they become the prime suspects in a modern-day whodunit."
The trailer pretty much explains the plot: how the married couple's honeymoon turns to a nightmare with one chance encounter.
