The first trailer has been released for Office Christmas Party, the upcoming comedy starring Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Kate McKinnon, T.J. Miller, and Olivia Munn.
This wild-looking comedy tells of what goes down when a CEO tries to close her hard-partying brother’s branch. Naturally, he and his Chief Technical Officer decide to throw a huge Christmas party at the office in the hopes of impressing a potential client and thus stopping the sale.
It seems like we get a big, ensemble comedy like this every year, especially with Bateman involved. That’s by no means a jab, as this looks like it could be a good bit of non-PC fun. There’s a decent cast on board, including supporting players such as Courtney B. Vance, Sam Richardson, Randall Park, and Jillian Bell, and the concept itself is simple and contained enough to (hopefully) provide the right backdrop for big laughs. We’ll see.
Office Christmas Party, directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, the duo who previously directed Bateman and Aniston in The Switch, will be opening in Australia on December 8 and hits the U.S. on December 9.
