J.K. Simmons and Emile Hirsch try a comedic Taken in this trailer for All Nighter

Meeting your girlfriend’s father is always tough, especially if you’re Emile Hirsch, but especially if her father is a particularly intimidating J.K. Simmons. This trailer for Gavin Wiesen’s comedy All Nighter opens like that, but then it quickly dives into a comedic spin on Taken with the aforementioned girl going missing and Simmons enlisting Emile Hirsch’s whiny, ineffectual loser to help track her down. From there, Taran Killam shows up as a guy in a hat, people get punched, and a lady talks about a Tweet she just posted, all while Simmons has what appears to be a good amount of fun playing a grumpy badass—and he doesn’t even have to take anyone to the gun show to do it.

All Nighter will be available through on-demand services on March 24, 2017.
