If it is December, chances are you will probably be invited to a Christmas Party to celebrate Yule Tides and Season’s Greetings. Of course, at these parties there’s bound to be some egg nog with a little alcoholic kick to it, which leads to some sort of drunken shenanigans, dumping one’s feelings over the office crush, and a nice hangover the next morning.
Now, a new comedy called Office Christmas Party will explore all those regrettable themes. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, and since this is a movie, things get seriously out of hand.
Check out the new trailer below.
So as you might guess, the main theme of the film is what happens when cubemates throw all their inhibitions out the window for one holiday-themed rager. Bateman narrates over the devastation from that party. Of course, when you see a burned out Christmas tree, a few drunks left behind, and a reindeer drinking out of the toilet, you pretty much know what you are getting yourself into if you decide to watch this movie. And that’s only what happens after the party. The trailer shows us things really get crazy when there’s flaming Christmas tree jousting, and Jillian Bell implying that she wants to “party” with Santa (played by Miller).
Yeah it’s another Christmas movie, but hey, it really wouldn’t be the holidays without one of these, especially for the adults who want something geared towards their age.
The film also stars Rob Corddry, Randall Park, Matt Walsh, Jamie Chung, Vanessa Bayer, Abbey Lee, Karan Soni, and Sam Richardson.
Directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, Office Christmas Party opens in theaters on December 9, 2016.
Here’s a very brief plot synopsis:
In OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, when the CEO tries to close her hard-partying brother’s branch, he and his Chief Technical Officer must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.
