Sure, we’re knee deep in film festival season with the Telluride Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival and now the Toronto International Film Festival all hitting back-to-back, but that doesn’t mean we’ve lost sight of what’s really important: sequels to terrible studio comedies! With no major releases this weekend —sorry, “The Identical,” no one really knows you exist and “Guardians of the Galaxy” is aiming for it’s fourth 1st place finish at the box office anyway— Warner Bros has inexplicably decided to release the second trailer for “Horrible Bosses 2” anyway.
Although we already posted a trailer back in July, this new version gives a first look at the sequel’s plot, but just in case you’re still in need of a refresher: the trio of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are trying to start their own business but are screwed over by Christoph Waltz’s shady investor. As retaliation, our three misguided heroes attempt to kidnap Waltz’s son, Chris Pine. From there, Jamie Foxx shows up to give advice, Kevin Spacey gets unwanted visitors in jail, Jennifer Aniston returns as the over-sexed dentist and funniness (hopefully) ensues.
We weren’t fans of the first film, but we’re still hoping that new director Sean Anders (“That’s My Boy” and “Sex Drive”) can work some wonder or other, since that cast is still aces. Just please, do us a favor and let’s call a moratorium on the use of DJ Snake and Lil’ Jon’s “Turn Down For What” in trailers forever. “Horrible Bosses 2” opens Thanksgiving Weekend, November 26th. Watch the trailer below.
