Game Night trailer kicks a get-together up a notch

This game night, the stakes have never been higher.

The new farce from Warner Bros. and the directors of Vacation, Game Night is an upcoming comedy thriller movie focusing on a casual get-together of well-off adults that goes seriously south—and it's not because someone spilled their drink on the board game.

Max and Annie, a well-off married couple, wanted nothing more than a night of cheese, wine and casual fellowship for their game night. But things go off the rails when Max's brother Brooks proposes the group take their game to the next level, proposing a realistic murder mystery with some stakes to make the game more interesting. 

Things then proceed to get really interesting when the line between what's real and what's fake gets blurred, very quickly. In a coincidence to end all coincidences, the opulent house playing host to the party gets invaded by masked intruders after Brooks introduces the game, with a bunch of thugs targeting Brooks—who appears to have some high-stakes secrets of his own—and kidnapping him for real. Obviously, no one helps him, because it's all part of the game—or is it?

Suddenly, it's on the other dinner guests to get Brooks back, but they'll have to follow the clues and grab some weapons if they want a shot at winning this most dangerous contest.

Starring Jason Bateman as Max, Rachel McAdams as Annie, and Kyle Chandler as Brooks, Game Night is directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, with a script by Mark Perez. It also stars Jesse Plemons, Jeffrey Wright, Lamorne Morris, and Kylie Bunbury.

Game Night will be out in theaters in the US on March 2, 2018.
