Hot Tub Time Machine is an upcoming science fiction comedy film being produced by United Artists/MGM. It stars John Cusack, Lyndsy Fonseca, Crystal Lowe, Rob Corddry, Clark Duke, and Craig Robinson. The film is directed by Steve Pink. It is scheduled for release on March 26, 2010. In addition to Cusack, the film also features stars from 1980s films such as Chevy Chase, Crispin Glover and William Zabka.
In 2010, four good friends have had a string of bad luck with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Rob Corddry) is a party guy who cannot find the party; Nick’s (Craig Robinson) wife controls his every move; and Adam’s video game obsessed nephew Jacob (Clark Duke) will not leave his basement.
After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year 1986. The protagonists can see each other as their proper age, but when they look at their reflections and to everyone else they appear as they did in 1986 (aside from Jacob). The quartet of men are at first concerned they must not mess anything up but then decide this may be a chance to change their destinies and get the futures (and women) they wanted.
The first and Red Band trailer for the film appeared at Comic-Con 2009 and on the internet on July 24, 2009. The movie will also be screened for free in over 50 cities in the weeks leading up to its release.
