The award for the most “on the nose” movie title this year will probably go to “Office Christmas Party,” which is about, you guessed it, an office Christmas party. With an all-star cast headlined by Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Jason Bateman, Kate McKinnon, Vanessa Bayer, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, Paramount is hoping the film will score big this December.
In some recently released clips, viewers can get a little taste of what’s to come in the raunchy comedy. From Jennifer Aniston putting T.J. Miller in a choke hold to Vanessa Bayer threatening her ex-husband by saying she’s gonna go “Gone Girl” on him, the footage is quite the mix. Missing from the clips is any footage from the titular party, but judging by trailers, it’s sure to be quite jovial.
The official synopsis says that Aniston plays a stern CEO that is close to shutting down her brother’s (T.J. Miller) branch of the company. In hopes of saving his branch, the brother recruits his staff to throw the best Christmas party ever to impress a potential business-saving client. I’m sure nothing will go wrong.
“Office Christmas Party” opens December 9th.
