The latest trailer for Paramount’s upcoming holiday comedy, Office Christmas Party, reveals more of the story behind the wild holiday bash.
In the preview, Jennifer Aniston’s CEO, who’s also the “so mean” sister of T.J. Miller’s character, announces she’s shutting down the failing branch of her company, run by Miller and Bateman’s characters.
Their only hope is to score a $14 million account from Walter Davis (Courtney B. Vance).
“Done,” Miller’s character announces triumphantly. “You’re gonna look so stupid.”
Aniston’s character shoots back: “Then we’ll finally have something in common.”
Miller’s character strategizes that he and his colleagues will invite Walter to their Christmas party, which his CEO sister has already forbidden them from throwing, and show him “the greatest time of his life” and “save everybody’s job.”
Soon Walter’s ripping open his shirt and sliding around the office like the party animal he used to be.
The new trailer also features more of Kate McKinnon’s holiday sweater-wearing, cheese plate-toting employee as well as more of characters played by Olivia Munn and Jillian Bell, including a bit of a harrowing car ride involving the latter.
Paramount is set to release Office Christmas Party — directed by Blades of Glory helmers Josh Gordon and Will Speck and written by Jon Lucas, Scott Moore, Justin Malen and Laura Solon — on Dec. 9.
