Things take a turn for the worst in the first full trailer for the forthcoming Warner Bros. comedy Game Night, written by Mark Perez and directed by Spider-Man: Homecoming’s John Francis Daley (who also played Sam Weir in Freaks and Geeks and Mitch in Waiting) and Jonathan Goldstein (who also directed Horrible Bosses). The movie starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams tells the story of what happens when a group of friends who meet regularly for game nights find themselves solving an actual murder mystery.
In the trailer above, Bateman’s character Max and McAdams’ Annie meet for the first time at a trivia competition and instantly fall in love over their equally competitive personalities. When a murder mystery game turns to real life, the couple has to come together in order to survive. The trailer teases the movie with the tagline, “The more you play, the crazier, wilder, scarier, faster, weirder it gets.”
Joining the film is a star-studded cast of actors and comedians, including Kylie Bunbury from Under the Dome, Kyle Chandler of Bloodline and Lamorne Morris from the hit show New Girl, among many others.
Directors Daley and Goldstein recently signed on to helm Warner Bros.’ standalone Flash movie, Flashpoint. The duo replaced previous director Rick Famuyima (Dope) on that project.
