I can’t remember the last time I could say I was looking forward to a Jason Bateman movie, most of all a comedy. Next month the darkly comedic Game Night will be released which sees Bateman and Rachael McAdams who decide to host a gaming night. The night that goes downhill when it becomes a murder mystery party they can’t decide if it’s real or fictional.
Ahead of next month’s cinematic release, we have a new set of clips from the upcoming action-comedy. The clips do showcase Jesse Plemons in the lovable but creepy way…
Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (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.
Game Night is set for an UK and Irish release date 2nd March 2018. Co-starring Kyle Chandler, Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Jesse Plemons, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Danny Huston, and Michael C. Hall
