Office Christmas Party Trailer #2: Aniston & Bateman Throw One Big Bash
Following the first trailer that debuted back in July, Paramount Pictures has unveiled the second trailer for Office Christmas Party. The studio has also unveiled three character posters featuring Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon and Rob Corddry. This comedy could certainly shake things up at the box office next month, as the only wide release opening on December 9, one week before LucasFilm's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Jennifer Aniston stars in Office Christmas Party 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, who can be seen in this outrageous trailer from Paramount Pictures.
T.J. Miller, who starred in the R-rated blockbuster Deadpool earlier this year, leads the supporting cast which also includes a slew of talented actors. Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live and Ghostbusters), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Tower), Jillian Bell (Workaholics), Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time), Rob Corddry (Childrens' Hospital), Matt Walsh (Veep), and Randall Park (The Interview) are just a few of the supporting cast members. Hopefully we'll get to see even more character posters featuring the rest of this cast partying hard.
Josh Gordon and Will Speck direct Office Christmas Party from a script by Justin Malen and Laura Solon, based on a story by Jon Lucas, Scott Moore and Dan Mazer. This project serves as a reunion for the filmmakers and stars Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, who all previously worked together on The Switch. 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.
With Office Christmas Party opening just a week before the highly-anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, that movie may cut into this outrageous comedy's box office take. Still, with no other movies opening in wide release, it could have a big debut before this Star Wars spin-off hits theaters. Take a look at the new trailer and posters as we await Office Christmas Party's release next month.
