Christmas is a time for good cheer and family gatherings, but it’s also a time to get drunk and cause crazy shenanigans. Such is the basis for the new wacky comedy “Office Christmas Party,” which boasts a murderer’s row of comedy stars and promises outrageous fun. The film follows CEO Carol Vanstone (Jennifer Aniston) as she tries to close down the branch run by her hard-partying brother Clay (T.J. Miller). In an effort to save their jobs, Clay and his CTO (Jason Bateman) rally their co-workers for an epic office Christmas party in order to impress a potential client, but of course, everything goes awry.
Watch the trailer for the film below.
The film is directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who previously directed the smash comedy “Blades of Glory,” starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder, as well as “The Switch,” starring Bateman and Jennifer Aniston. It’s written by Justin Malen and Laura Solon with a story from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the duo behind “The Hangover” series. “Office Christmas Party” also stars Kate McKinnon (“Ghostbusters”), Olivia Munn (“The Newsroom”), Jamie Chung (“Premium Rush”), Abbey Lee (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), Courtney B. Vance (“American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson”), Jillian Bell (“Workaholics”) and more.
“Office Christmas Party” will be released in theaters on December 9.
