"Horrible Bosses," the 2011 comedy that starred Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis as a trio of dim-wits who conspire to off their evil employers, wasn't exactly an obvious franchise-starter. But with a domestic haul of over $200 million (on a budget of just $35 million), a sequel was quickly developed. And come this Thanksgiving, "Horrible Bosses 2" will be unleashed. And thanks to a new trailer and poster, you'll get a better idea of what the sequel is all about.
The trailer opens with Sudeikis and Day collaborating on a ransom note, saying that they are "way better" at kidnapping than murder. When Day is about to glue down the letters for his scary ransom note, Bateman gets in the car and the letters go flying. It's a pretty cute moment. The rest of the trailer, set to the DJ Snake and Lil Jon party anthem "Turn Down for What," sets up the basic premise: the guys plot the kidnapping of their horrible business partner's son (played by Chris Pine), who then turns out to want to help them in their scheme.
It all looks very funny and zany and if you liked the first movie, then you'll probably love this. It's also nice to see Pine flexing his comedic muscles, after being stuck in mostly dramatic fare like this year's abysmal "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit." Plus, we get glimpses of returning favorites Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx -- and the new horrible boss, two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz. We're ready to send in our application.
Check out the trailer and the new poster below and keep an eye out for "Horrible Bosses 2," which hits theaters November 26th.
