Game Night centres around a group of friends, who meet regularly for game nights, then find themselves trying to solve a murder mystery after one decides they’re going to have a different kind of game, but as you’ll see from the start of the trailer, playful intentions lead to mishaps they’d rather forget about.
A film with two directors (John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, responsible for 2015’s Vacation and the forthcoming sequel, Vacation Guide to the Solar System) rarely works, but I got a lot of laughs from this trailer, so I hope they’re not the only laughs in the movie. I remember Mark Kermode saying how 10-second trailer clips in Vacation were strung out to seven minutes with no extra comedy, so that doesn’t bode well.
