New Line Cinema presents “Game Night.”
The “Game Night” action comedy is produced by Davis Entertainment/Aggregate Films, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, and is rated R.
Jason Bateman (the “Horrible Bosses” films, “Arrested Development,” “Ozark”) and Oscar nominee Rachel McAdams (“Spotlight,” “Dr. Strange”) star as Max and Annie.
Max and Annie run a weekly couples game night, which gets a change of pace when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks, arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So, when Brooks is 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 discover they are in over their heads. It gets worse as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. This is a strange game. There are no rules, no points, and the players have no idea who all the other players are. Could this turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had … or is it game over?
You have to watch to find out.
Game Night was written by Mark Perez (“Accepted”), and produced by John Davis (“Joy”), Jason Bateman, John Fox (“The Blacklist”), and James Garavente (“Bad Words”).
