Game Night — Official Trailer


added: Thu, Feb 1st '18

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams play an intensely competitive couple who are terrific at trivia games but are both utterly clueless when it comes to determining whether a handgun is real or fake in the new official trailer for "Game Night."

In the upcoming date-night comedy, which is also starring Lamorne Morris (TV's New Girl), Billy Magnussen (Ingrid Goes West), Kylie Bunbury (TV's Pitch), and Sharon Horgan (Amazon's Catastrophe), three thickheaded couples are invited to an elaborate murder-mystery party for which the winner will take home a swanky red sports car.

But when the host and game-master (played by "Friday Night Lights" star Kyle Chandler, in a surprise comedic role) is suddenly kidnapped at his home by masked gunmen, the couples can't make heads or tails of it. Is it part of the game? Or do they need to call the cops? As one might have expected, these game-loving buffoons continue to burn through the night thinking everything must be part of the game somehow. That's until, a loaded handgun enters the picture and real blood gets splattered -- and splattered just about everywhere.

Co-starring Jesse Plemons (from "Black Mirror: USS Callister") as a weird policeman who carries around a dog, "Game Night" is written by "Accepted" scribe Mark Perez and directed by comedy screenwriting duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, Vacation), who were recently tapped to direct the upcoming "Flash" superhero movie.

"Game Night" opens February 23rd.

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.
