Game Night — Teaser Trailer


added: Thu, Nov 9th '17

Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) and Rachel McAdams (Spotlight, Dr. Strange) are having a hard time distinguishing between what is real and what is phony in the first trailer for the upcoming ensemble comedy "Game Night."

Also starring Sharon Horgan (Amazon's Catastrophe), Lamorne Morris (TV's New Girl), Billy Magnussen (Ingrid Goes West), Kylie Bunbury (TV's Pitch) and Kyle Chandler (TV's Friday Night Lights), the film centers on three couples who have been invited to a game night, like no other.

Organized as an elaborate murder mystery party, things quickly go off the rails when, at the very start of the evening, the host (Chandler) is suddenly gagged, bound, and sequentially kidnapped by two masked gunmen. Believing it was all a setup and just part of their "game night" experience, the group of six, led by Max and Annie (Bateman and McAdams), continue their efforts to solve the big mystery. However, what they are stepping into is something that's a lot more dangerous (and absurd) than they seemed to realize.

Written by Mark Perez (Accepted), "Game Night" is the second directorial effort from John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the screenwriting duo who wrote the "Horrible Bosses" films, recently co-wrote "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and previously wrote and directed the 2015 comedy "Vacation."

Co-starring Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston, and Michael C. Hall, "Game Night" will be arriving in theaters on February 23, 2018.

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max's charismatic brother, Brooks (Kyle Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it's all part of the game... right?

But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this "game" -- nor Brooks -- are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they've ever had... or game over.
