Still on the fence about spending the holidays with Office Christmas Party? Perhaps you won’t be after you get a taste of the new trailer, which Paramount Pictures just dropped on their Youtube channel. It comes packing some surprise gifts of laughter and a few killer one-liners, along with what could be described as the greatest wipeout ever.
Also, TJ Miller is seen renting babies. Bad Santa 2 proved to be a huge letdown for comedy fans over the Thanksgiving holiday. Perhaps this movie will get everyone in better spirits. In Office Christmas Party, when the CEO tries to close her hard-partying brother’s branch, he and his Chief Technical Officer must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.
These guys are going to Party like thier job depends on it. Office Christmas Party is coming to theaters December 9th. And dang, does it have an all-star cast of comedic masterminds lined-up. Sparring off each other will be Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Vanessa Bayer, Jillian Bell, Jamie Chung, Rob Corddry, Abbey Lee, Kate McKinnon, T.J. Miller, Olivia Munn, Karan Soni, Courtney B. Vance and Matt Walsh.
After starring in The Switch, Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2 together, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston return to the big screen, but this time as rival siblings in Office Christmas Party. Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who directed both Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman in The Switch, direct from a script by Justin Malen and Laura Solon. Justin Malen is writing the new Baywatch theatrical remake, while Laura Solon makes her feature writing debut after writing for Hot in Cleveland and other TV shows. The story was concocted by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, with Guymon Casaday producing with Daniel Rappaport and Scott Stuber.
Office Christmas Party is leading what could only be described as one of the most packed weekends of the year. There are an unprecedented 19 wide and limited releases scheduled to hit next weekend. But it looks like this bash will likely take the top spot away from Disney’s Moana in its third week of release.
Also coming next weekend is the Oscar-worthy drama MIss Sloane, which has Jessica Chastain tackling the controversial subject of gun control. And Amy Adams goes toe-to-toe with Jake Gyllenhaal in the acclaimed drama Nocturnal Animals. Amongst the notable limited releases is Oscar favorite La La Land, a musical that reunites Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling for the third time on the big screen. Take a look at the latest trailer for Office Christmas Party, which arrives as the modern day answer to 1984’s Bachelor Party starring Tom Hanks.
