Watch Jamie Foxx & Wendell Pierce In First Trailer For “Horrible Bosses”

Watch Jamie Foxx & Wendell Pierce In First Trailer For "Horrible Bosses"

Here’s your first full trailer for the upcoming ensemble workplace comedy, Horrible Bosses, which centers on three best friends who decide to kill one anothers’ bosses, when they become frustrated by their jobs. That’s exactly what I would have thought to do as well, if I were frustrated with my job :|

Jamie Foxx co-stars alongside Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey, Jason Bateman, and others; Seth Gordon directed.

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis, play the employees, while Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey and Colin Farrell play the three employers.

As for Jamie Foxx, well, he plays a scam artist named Motherfucker Jones! Yes, that’s what his character’s name is. Motherfucker Jones is said to be a hustling ex-con who the 3 would-be killer friends hire to murder their bosses; what else?

Wendell Pierce is in a peripheral role as a police officer, maybe relieving his days at The Wire :)

The movie will be in theaters on July 8th. The trailer below does nothing for me, so I’ll be skipping this one; maybe when it’s streaming on Netflix, I’ll give it a look.

Glad to see an Always Sunny cast member in a film, but I could see myself being disappointed in this film. It looks like they put jokes in the trailer they were confident in, and they didn’t work all that well for me.

Is it the silly concept or the ridiculous situations? I don’t know. I’d see it, but I didn’t laugh too hard at this.

Wow, I remember reading this script a while back. Totally forgot about it!


Trailer not as funny as I thought it would be based off how funny I found the script but I’ll still watch.

I just watched this trailer twice! It had me laughing :)


Is that Chad Coleman (The Wire) playing the bartender @1:21?


Brother T, seriously?
You wouldn’t check this out in the theater, with that cast?
Even J. Aniston seems to be going there — and the script says she should!
Though uneven, Jason Bateman is back in movies like a monster. It’s got a Hangover feel to it but what wouldn’t these days?

I so respect your tastes, but I gotta wonder what is it that you find FUNNY? If you haven’t already load up that question for the S&A crew and for the commenters.


A Miami Vice reunion! I hope Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx have scenes together!

Is Kevin Spacey reprising his role from Swimming With Sharks (1994)?
