I was under the impression that Date Night would have stars Steve Carell and Tina Fey as a married couple who undergo a series of comic mishaps as they try to have a nice night out on the town-a kind of quasi-remake of The Out-of-Towners. But as the first trailer shows us, Date Night is a comedy-action movie. The plot may be “married couple vs. gangsters” but the movie looks like “Carell/Fey vs. bad jokes/director Shawn Levy”. Here’s hoping that Carell and Fey win.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Date Night hits theaters on April 9, 2010.
Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ got the win yesterday, but will end up battling ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ for dominance over the long holiday weekend. Meanwhile, the ‘Poltergeist’ reboot opens on target, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ remains strong and ‘Age of Ultron’ gets set to pass $400 million domestic.
