Game Night

Game Night

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Kyle 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. With Sharon Horgan, Jesse Plemons, Michael C. Hall, Danny Huston, Chelsea Peretti, Billy Magnussen, Lamorne Morris.

GAME NIGHT is a madcap adventure packed with laughs, twists, and good performances that will keep audiences thoroughly entertained.” (Screen Rant)

“With a talented cast turned loose on a loaded premise — and a sharp script loaded with dark comedy and unexpected twists — GAME NIGHT might be more fun than the real thing.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
