Some are made heroes. Others are maids. That’s literally the case in Netflix’s new action flick, Game Over, Man!, which takes Die Hard and gives it the comedy treatment.
From the creators of Workaholics, the movie stars Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson. The trio play Alexx, Darren and Joel, three friends who are on the verge of getting their video game financed when their benefactor is taken hostage by terrorists.
Written by Anders Holm, with Kyle Newacheck on directing duties, the film sees the group try to save the day from the terrorists, freeing the hostages in the process. The movie marks a reunion between Devine and the streaming giant, after he starred in Netflix’s original rom-com, When We First Met. While that was met with a lukewarm response (read our review here), the signs are more positive for this low-brow actioner. We’ll find out if it levels up or dies hard on Friday 23rd March, when it lands on Netflix worldwide.
Here’s the new trailer – or click here for more on what’s coming soon to Netflix this month.
Game Over, Man! is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.

“Don’t kill Shaggy. I love Shaggy.” That’s the sound of Game Over, Man! heading to Netflix, as the streaming giant’s new comedy sees the music legend taken hostage at a Los Angeles hotel. All set to save the day? Three friends who work there and decide to level up and become heroes to stop the gunmen.
Pitched as a dangerous comedy, the film is from the creators of Workaholics, starring Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson. It premieres on Netflix on 23rd March. Here’s the new video:
Game Over Man: Netflix releases teaser trailer for Adam Devine comedy

One of the criticisms levelled at Netflix’s original movies to date has been the streaming service’s lack of promotion ahead of its films’ release. Almost in a rebuttal to those comments, Netflix has already begun promoting its latest original comedy, despite it not premiering until 2018.
The film? Game Over Man, a comedy that stars Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson. The Workaholics trio play Alexx, Darren and Joel, three friends who are on the verge of getting their video game financed when their benefactor is taken hostage by terrorists.
The movie is written by Anders Holm, with Kyle Newacheck on directing duties. The tone is clear from the off, as the brief video gives us a taste of the three actors on amusing, incompetent stoner-action form, as they prove just how little they should be trusted with anything remotely resembling action.
Game Over Man will be released worldwide on Netflix on Friday 20th April 2018. Read on for the video – or, for what’s coming soon to Netflix in the more immediate future, click here.
