20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the upcoming action comedy (I think?) Date Night, from director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum). It stars Steve Carell and Tina Fey as a couple who is trying to reignite their relationship by having a date night. But after being bold and taking someone else’s reservation, they are thrust into a wild series of situations that definitely bring the excitement back into their marriage.
As you will see in the trailer below – which comes to us via Apple – the film is also full of small roles from big names, including James Franco, Mila Kunis, Taraji P. Henson, Common and a very abtastic Mark Wahlberg. The trailer is funny enough, and as most of Shawn Levy’s filmography goes, it’s all surface level – but it could very well be fun.
Have a look for yourself below.
Claire and Phil Foster (Tina Fey and Steve Carell) are a typical suburban couple whose lives – including their weekly date nights of dinner and a movie – have become routine. To reignite the marital spark, they visit a trendy Manhattan bistro where a case of mistaken identity turns their evening into the ultimate date night-gone-awry. But as Claire and Phil take their unexpected walk on the wild side, they begin to remember what made them so special together.
