Netflix has released a new trailer for the new original film Game Over, Man!, which is an action-comedy from the creators of Workaholics. Kyle Newacheck (Workaholics) directs from a screenplay by Anders Holm, who co-stars alongside Adam Devine and Blake Anderson as three waiters who spring into action when the building they work in gets taken hostage. If that sounds a lot like Die Hard, it’s no accident. The homages to the classic action film are on full display in this new trailer, right down to a hilarious direct reference from Sam Richardson to the “black nerd from Die Hard.”
This continues to look really funny, and as shown in the debut trailer there’s also a bit of a 21 Jump Street vibe as the comedy—and a little bit of heart—is born out of the friendship between these three people.
Netflix is ramping up production of original films, releasing its first “blockbuster” last December in the form of Bright and also getting into the awards race with Mudbound. Game Over, Man! feels like the perfect kind of hangout movie that folks would want to fire up from the comfort of their own home, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one’s received.
Watch the first Game Over, Man! trailer below. The film also stars Aya Cash, Neal McDonough, and Cloris Leachman and premieres on Netflix on March 23rd.
