When we’re kids, we hang at our friends’ houses. When we’re teenagers and young adults, we date. When you end up married, be-kidded, mortgaged, and shackled to a cubicle all day, you live for game nights. Humans need to play. It’s part of who we are. Game Night takes suburban warfare via board games, which happens in homes everywhere on a regular basis, and gives it a brilliant, absurd kick into the stratosphere. The result is one of the best comedies in recent memory, not just for its constantly hysterical script, but for the ingenuity and deftness of the plot in which its mayhem takes place.

Max and Annie’s weekly game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party — complete with fake thugs and federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all supposed to be part of the game. As the competitors set out to solve the case, they start to learn that neither the game nor Brooks are what they seem to be.

The last time Tom Cruise worked with director Doug Liman, the two teamed for the 2014 hit Edge of Tomorrow (which has subsequently been retitled “Live, Die, Repeat”). A sequel to Edge of Tomorrow, which is supposed to be both a prequel and sequel to the original film is in the works, and Emily Blunt is expected to return. In the meantime, the two have American Made coming September 29, 2017. The film tells the wild, true life adventures of Barry Seal, a rogue and pilot recruited by the CIA to head one of the largest covert operations in American history. American Made also stars Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, Caleb Landry Jones, and Jesse Plemons.

He did recently clarify a few issues during an interview he held for the Television Critics Association press tour. Here’s the bullet points:
