Before we get to see J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon in “Justice League,” he’ll do some investigating in the comedy “All Nighter.” The first trailer for the film introduces viewers to Simmon’s character Mr. Gallo, a globe-trotting businessman who goes in search of his missing daughter.
The clip begins with Simmons meeting his daughter Ginnie’s (Annaleigh Tipton) awkward boyfriend, Martin (Emile Hirsch), who plays the banjo and spills a drink all over him. Cut to six months later and he finds out Ginnie is missing after he visits her boyfriend’s place and discovers that she broke up with him. The story continues as the two go in search of her, forced to get along, but forming an unlikely friendship along the way.

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.

More J.K. Simmons is never a bad thing in my opinion, particularly when he's playing a terrifying bad-ass. In Gavin Wiesen's All Nighter, Simmons plays a globe-trotting, workaholic who attempts to visit his daughter during a last-minute layover in Los Angeles. After discovering that she's disappeared, he forces her awkward, nervous ex-boyfriend (Emile Hirsch), who is still... Read More »

"This is not a movie, this is life." The first trailer has debuted for an indie comedy titled All Nighter, the second feature from director Gavin Wiesen, who last directed a film titled Homework (which was retitled to The Art of Getting By). All Nighter stars J.K. Simmons as a workaholic father who decides to visit his daughter in La, only to discover she's missing. He find her ex-boyfriend and ends up searching for her with him. Emile Hirsch is the ex, a banjo-playing goofball. The full cast includes Analeigh Tipton, Kristen Schaal, Taran Killam and Stephanie Allynne. This looks like a wild night of fun, I just hope it's good. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Gavin Wiesen's All Nighter, originally from Yahoo: A workaholic father who attempts to visit his daughter during a layover in La, only to discover that she's disappeared, is forced to team »

Simmons has a full slate for 2017, including Zack Snyder’s “Justice League,” the Owen Wilson-Ed Helms comedy “Bastards” and Tomas Alfredson’s new film “The Snowman.” Simmons will also star in the new film “All Nighter,” formerly titled “The Runaround,” about a globe-trotting businessman who forms an unlikely friendship with his daughter’s struggling musician ex-boyfriend after she mysteriously disappears.
