1. Uncle Drew
2. Sicario: Day of the Soldado
Former Cavs player and current Celtic Kyrie Irving stars in the new comedy that opens nationwide Friday.
From soda to cinema: Yes, the movie is based on the Pepsi commercial and videos from 2012 about a gray-haired curmudgeon who can still play ball.
Product placement: Movies have been based on TV shows, toys and video games, but deriving a screenplay from a Pepsi ad is unique. The script is by Jay Longino (Skiptrace), and the director is Charles Stone III (Drumline).
Happy hoopsters: Irving, who wrote and directed the original videos, is joined on screen by former NBA stars Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson and Chris Webber.
