Anyone remember the movie The Game with Michael Douglas? What if you combined that with like, Horrible Bosses? You’d probably get next year’s Game Night where Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams are a couple who get in over their heads with a murder mystery game that goes insanely out of control. For Max (Bateman) and Annie’s (Rachel McAdams) weekly game night, Max’s brother Brooks (Kyle Chandler) shows up and sets up a murder mystery where someone in their group will be kidnapped and no one will know what’s real and what’s fake. Brooks himself is taken by armed thugs and the various couples at game night break off to follow clues and try to figure out what’s going on. Sharon Horgan, Jesse Plemons, Billy Magnussen, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Danny Huston and Michael C. Hall co-star and it’s directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who directed Vacation. Nothing seemed particularly hysterical but I’m usually in for anything Jason Bateman is in, so I’ll definitely see it at some point. It’s out on March 2nd next year and you can check out the trailer below.

I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
