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.
The first theatrical teaser trailer was released today. We have added the trailer in our video archive and high definition screencaptures in our gallery. Rachel stars alongside Jason Bateman, Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston, with Michael C. Hall and Kyle Chandler. The movie will be released on March 2, 2018 and May 4, 2018 in the UK.
Jason Bateman (the “Horrible Bosses” films, TV’s “Arrested Development”) and Oscar nominee Rachel McAdams (“Spotlight,” “Dr. Strange”) team up in New Line Cinema’s action comedy “Game Night.” John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein are directing the film, marking their second film as co-directors, following “Vacation.”
Joining Bateman and McAdams in the cast are Billy Magnussen (“Bridge of Spies,” TV’s “American Crime Story”), Sharon Horgan (Amazon’s “Catastrophe”), Lamorne Morris (TV’s “New Girl”), Kylie Bunbury (TV’s “Pitch,” “Under the Dome”), Jesse Plemons (“Black Mass,” TV’s “Fargo”), Danny Huston (“Wonder Woman,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), with Michael C. Hall (TV’s “Dexter” and “Six Feet Under”) and Kyle Chandler (“Manchester by the Sea,” TV’s “Bloodline”).
People Magazine released the first official look at “Game Night” featuring Rachel and her costar Jason Bateman. We have added the still in our gallery. Rachel’s costar Jason spoke to People, the article can be found below. The movie will be released on March 2, 2017 in the USA.
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.
Game Night hits theaters March 2, 2018.

Earlier today, Rachel stopped by Deadline’s Grey Goose Cocktails & Conversation panel for “Disobedience” alongside Rachel Weisz, Alessandro Nivola and director Sebastián Lelio. The panel was livestream, but sadly there were technical problems with the audio. We hope the full panel (with audio!) will be released soon. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.
In case you missed it, you are still able to (re)watch the livestream. The video can be found after the jump.
Rachel attended the world premiere of “Disobedience” last night during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival alongside Rachel Weisz, Alessandro Nivola and director Sebastián Lelio. She looks beautiful wearing a mint green Elie Saab gown from their Resort 2018 collection with Louboutin heels. She was styled by Rob Zangardi & Mariel Haenn, hair by Bobby Eliot and her makeup was done by her sister and makeup artist Kayleen McAdams. The first batch with high quality images are added of the arrivals, inside the venue during the Q&A and at the after party. Many thanks again to Sara from The Margot Corner for her donations. Be sure to check back, we expect more additional coverage soon!
Rachel is expected to attend today’s Deadline Conversations panel, as we previously reported, which will be streamed live on Deadline.com.
