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. Today we have the first trailer and photos from this new comedy, arriving in theaters December 9, which could give people some crazy ideas about their own holiday parties. After watching the footage below, all we can hope for is that any party inspired by this movie doesn’t get too out of hand.
In Office Christmas Party, Jennifer Aniston stars as the CEO of a company, who tries to close her hard-partying brother’s (Jason Bateman) branch. This leads the brother and his Chief Technical Officer to 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. Both Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman lead a diverse cast of comedy and action all-stars, as you can see in this trailer that debuted on YouTube
The supporting cast also includes Silicon Valley and Deadpool star T.J. Miller, Saturday Night Live and Ghostbusters star Kate McKinnon, X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Tower star Abbey Lee, Workaholics’ star Jillian Bell, Once Upon a Time star Jamie Chung, Childrens’ Hospital star Rob Corddry, Veep star Matt Walsh, The Interview star Randall Park and People vs. O.J. Simpson star Courtney B. Vance, just to name a few. The movie will be going up against STX Entertainment’s thriller The Bye Bye Man and EuropaCorp’s Miss Sloane in theaters this December. It will also open one week before LucasFilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
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.
In addition to the new trailer, we also have the first photos which feature Jason Bateman, T.J. Miller, Olivia Munn, Kate McKinnon and Courtney B. Vance. We’ll be sure to keep you posted with more photos and footage from this outrageous comedy as we get closer and closer to the December 9 release date.
