Tag Trailer (2018)
Trailer for Tag, starring Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones and Isla Fisher.
For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!”
This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready.
Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.
Tag is directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”), with a starring ensemble cast led by Ed Helms (The Hangover movies, We’re the Millers), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”), Leslie Bibb (Iron Man 2), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), with Jon Hamm (Baby Driver, TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Town).
The Tag screenplay was written by Rob McKittrick (“Waiting”) and Mark Steilen (TV’s “Mozart in the Jungle”), screen story by Mark Steilen, and based on the Wall Street Journal article entitled “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It,” by Russell Adams. The film is produced by Todd Garner and Mark Steilen, with Hans Ritter, Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter serving as executive producers.
The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Larry Blanford, production designer David Sandefur, editor Josh Crockett, and costume designer Denise Wingate.
It is hard to believe that they made a movie based around the childhood game of tag...and it is even harder to believe that this is based on a real life story of adults who have been playing the same game since they were kids. I cam only imagine being in the room when someone pitches the idea to make a Hollywood movie of how adults play tag.
That being said, they have taken this to a whole new over the top level and have the ensemble cast to back it up. So, there must be something there for these actors to have signed up for this wild ride.
Reading the synopsis I thought this movie was going to be lame, but now seeing the trailer I must admit that it looks pretty funny.
