So the teaser trailer for Game Night is out. The film, which stars Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman, is about a group of friends who have a game night that evolves into a kidnapping and action-fueled murder mystery.
I had been reading about this film several months ago, but this trailer didn’t meet my expectations for the film. I had known about the plot and I felt it was very similar to a Steve Carell film called Date Night which came out a few years back. I expected this film to steadily increase in its preposterousness but it feels like Game Night begins at a level of silliness that it might be tough to come back from.
Personally, I’ve seen the way these films have played out and I’m not sure I want to see that again. Now, this is all from just a teaser trailer so I’m going to wait until the next trailer or marketing piece to see how it affects my enthusiasm, but for right now, I didn’t like this trailer.
But what did you think? Have you seen the trailer for Game Night? Will you be there opening weekend? Let me know/Drop a comment below!
