Official movie poster for ‘Uncle Drew’ released (pic)

First, there was the announcement of an official premiere date. And now, the official movie poster for the upcoming “Uncle Drew” film has hit the Internet.

The film is based upon the adventures of the titular character as portrayed by Boston Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving. “Uncle Drew” was first brought life in a series of wildly popular Pepsi commercials featuring the elderly basketball-playing character. And from that, the concept for a full-fledged movie was born.

A star-studded cast joins Irving in the movie. Among the big names from the basketball world are Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber and Reggie Miller. Actors Lil Rel Howery, Nick Kroll and Erica Ash also are among the cast, as is former NBA player Nate Robinson. A photo showcasing the crew surfaced last year as the film was being shot.

The official trailer follows.

The movie is currently slated for a June 29 premiere date.
