We are getting closer to the release of “Game Night” so it seems the promotion is getting on it’s way. Today, IGN exclusively released a new production still which features Rachel and costar Jason Bateman with costars Lamorne Morris, Billy Magnussen, and Kylie Bunbury in the background. The movie will be released on February 23, 2018 in the USA and Warner Bros UK recently moved the release forward for the UK towards March 2, 2018 (previously May 4, 2018).
In the New Line comedy Game Night, Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as a couple whose weekly game night with their friends goes horribly wrong when the fun murder mystery game they think they’re playing turns into a very real kidnapping. Jesse Plemons, Kyle Chandler, Lamorne Morris, Billy Magnussen, Kylie Bunbury and Sharon Horgan also star in the film, and we’ve got a first look photo of the main cast.
The film’s directing team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein made their feature-debut as helmers with the 2015 Vacation remake, but they got their start as writers, having also worked on films like Horrible Bosses (1 and 2, also featuring Bateman), Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and most recently, Spider-Man: Homecoming. But in the case of Game Night, the pair recently told IGN that one of the biggest challenges was striking the right tone between the comedy and thriller aspects of the film.
Looks like “Game Night” finished post-production. The movie got rated R earlier this week, according to Film Ratings. The movie will be released on February 23, 2018 in the USA and May 4, 2018 in the UK.

Some people take game night a little too far.
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams find themselves fighting to save a friend’s life in the upcoming dark comedy Game Night — and PEOPLE has the exclusive first look.
In the film, the pair star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night takes a turn when they divert from their standard Pictionary and charades to play a game of murder mystery — complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. But when someone goes missing, the group must determine if it’s part of the game, or real life.
“In the game, somebody does get kidnapped and what we realize later is that’s it’s actually a real kidnapping by coincidence. It happens on the same night,” Bateman tells PEOPLE. “So there’s some overlap in there in wondering what’s real and what’s part of the game, which lends itself to a little bit of action, some nighttime intrigue, thriller stuff. And of course, you’ve got the comedy all the way through.”
Kyle Chandler, Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris and Jesse Plemons also star in the film, which comes from Vacation directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

Q: Let’s go back to your latest movie that you’ve said you just saw it, “Game Night”, due out next year. Who’s in it? Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams? That’s an awesome duo.
A: By the way, the cast is – I don’t know if you guys are big TV fans, I’m sure you are – but the cast is dope. It’s Kyle Chandler, it’s Jesse Plemons. It’s homeboy who’s Dexter, Michael C. Hall. He plays the bad guy. What’s the guy from Westworld? Jeffrey Wright. It’s crazy. It’s got all these legitimate actors.
What’s cool about it, and when I wrote it, I wanted it to be not just a comedy but a murder mystery. You know, the premise is, you know a bunch of [people playing game night]. This is the one thing, you always have to come up with something everything relates to like bad moms or hangover. So I was like, everybody plays game night. Couples get together [to play games]. I’m like, what’s the hook of it? What if a rich brother came into town and upstaged your game night and did a murder mystery night. But then you come to find out that the brother is being chased by the mob and a real murder happens but nobody playing knows they think it’s a game until halfway through. And what the cool thing is, what the directors did, I saw it last night. They play it really dark and real and people get shot and sometimes it’s fake and sometimes it’s real. So you never really know. So the audience is laughing but also their big note was, ‘unexpected’. Which I think especially with movies nowadays, especially with comedies is everybody seen them all. Every comedy that comes out, I’m like I have seen that.
