With directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein’s very funny new movie Game Night now in theaters, we’ve been provided with an alternate movie poster for the film to share with our readers. If you didn’t know, when a studio is coming up with their marketing plan, they design a myriad of options for the movie poster and usually the versions that aren’t used are never seen again. Over the years, I’ve seen tons of cool alternate movie posters and when I saw this one I thought it would be cool to share.
Like I’ve been saying on the site again and again, I thought Game Night was extremely funny and it had me laughing from beginning to end. And if you thought maybe it’s just me, a few nights ago we held a special early screening of the film at ArcLight Cinemas Hollywood as part of the Collider screening series and it played like the crowd was on laughing gas. Trust me, see this in a crowded theater and you’ll have a great time.
If you haven’t seen the trailers (which, thankfully, don’t spoil all the jokes or twists and turns), the film stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams as a couple whose weekly game night gets kicked up a couple thousand notches when Bateman’s brother (played by Kyle Chandler) arranges a murder mystery party that quickly gets out of hand. Think of Game Night as a comedic version of David Fincher’s The Game. The film also stars Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Chelsea Peretti, Danny Huston, Michael C. Hall and an amazing Jesse Plemons, who plays a police officer that lives next door to Bateman and McAdams.
Check out the alternate Game Night poster below and further down are a few links to some of our recent coverage and the official synopsis. Trust me, if you want to have a good time at the movies this weekend go see Game Night.
