‘Game Night’ Trailer: Things Are Out of Control for Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams

- Advertisement -

Game Night looks like a wild comedy riff on David Fincher’s The Game, where unwilling participants get caught up in a real-world of fake danger. Or is it?

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star, and there’s really nothing else you need to know. It’s a Bateman comedy, with Rachel McAdams, there is fun to be had. Check it:

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.

This sounds like fun. Looks like fun too. Aside from Bateman and McAdams it stars Jesse Plemons and Kyle Chandler. Also, Jason Bateman comedies are always worth a watch simply because he’s in them; even his bad ones are good because he’s there. Yeah, even The Switch. What’s up…
