The first Horrible Bosses movie was, in truth, a better idea than it was a film. It had its moments, but was light on good, old fashioned guffaws. However, it was a sizeable hit, and this winter, we get Horrible Bosses 2.
The film sees the return of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, along with Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Foxx. There's a new director this time though, with Sean Anders taking on the job, having previously helmed Sex Drive and That's My Boy.
A first teaser trailer for the movie has landed too, which you can see here. Horrible Bosses 2 is scheduled for a UK release on November 28th.

Plot: Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor (Waltz) soon pulls the rug out from under them.

The new movie is directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy, Sex Drive) and is set to hit theaters on November 26th. Trailer: »
Yeah...they went there. The first trailer for "Horrible Bosses 2" is here, and it ends with a punchline so suggestively graphic that...well, I hope you're not eating right now, because it gets pretty gross. In any case, all the original cast members are in attendance for the upcoming sequel (save the one "horrible boss" who didn't make it out alive last time), which sees director Sean Anders ("That's My Boy," "Sex Drive") stepping in for previous helmer Seth Gordon. And at least based on this early look, he's aiming to top the shocking antics of the first movie. Check out the full trailer above, then let us know whether you'll be seeing "Horrible Bosses 2" by voting in the poll further down the page. "Horrible Bosses 2" hits theaters on November 26. »

Following the comedy hit of 2011, Horrible Bosses 2 is on the way now with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day back together, this time working for themselves with a new business. However, we don't get a hint of that in the first teaser trailer. Instead, we get to see the trio visiting Bateman's boss (Kevin Spacey) in prison after being arrested at the end of the first film. And also the return of Day's boss (Jennifer Aniston), who is still keen on getting some action, but this time of a certain bathroom variety. One thing we do learn is there's a kidnapping involved and Motherfucker Jones (Jamie Foxx) is helping again. It's a great tease for the new comedy coming this fall, with a hint of Chris Pine freshness. Watch! Here's the first teaser trailer for Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2 from Warner Bros. & New Line: Horrible Bosses 2 »

New Line has released the first trailer for Horrible Bosses 2, directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy). Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis return to start a new business in the sequel. When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) takes over, "the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company." I somehow missed the first installment from Seth Gordon back in 2011, but this new trailer makes me want to remedy that Asap. It's also got the best use of "Turn Down for What" since, well, DJ Snake & Lil Jon's video. Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also return in Horrible Bosses 2, scheduled for release on November 26th. Hit the jump to watch the first Horrible Bosses 2 trailer.

For some reason, we never reported on a developing project called Daddy's Home that would have reteamed Will Ferrell with Wedding Crashers star Vince Vaughn and director Etan Cohen behind the camera. But it doesn't matter, because the film has new life as Deadline reports the film will now actually reteam Ferrell will The Other Guys co-star Mark Wahlberg. But this time, it will be That's My Boy and Horrible Bosses 2 directing duo Sean Anders & John Morris at the helm with production beginning this fall. Paramount must like having Wahlberg around after Transformers: Age of Extinction and Pain & Gain. Cohen also scripted the film along with Brian Burns, Adam McKay & Chris Henchy with a story that follows Ferrell as a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best step-father ever to his wife’s two children. However, things get a little complicated when their deadbeat, freeloading father (Wahlberg) returns, »

Last year, you might remember that Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn were kicking around "Daddy's Home" as a potential reunion vehicle, and while seeing them again together on the big screen in leading roles would've been nice. But this new plan is one we can roll with. Paramount wants to get moving on the project but swap in Mark Wahlberg for Vaughn. Uh, yes please. The Ferrell/Wahlberg combo slayed in "The Other Guys," and this vehicle seems perfect for more hilarious friction. Sean Anders and John Morris ("Sex Drive," "That's My Boy") would direct this one about a mild-mannered stepdad (Ferrell) who has to confront his children's real father (Wahlberg) and fight for the love of the kids. So yeah, basically an excuse for Ferrell and Wahlberg to bicker and battle and that's fine. If this works out, filming will begin this fall, so fingers crossed. Until then, here »

It was all a dream—until Christopher Wallace, Jr. made it a reality. The famous celebuspawn of late rapper Notorious B.I.G and singer Faith Evans achieved a milestone of his young adult life last week when he graduated from high school at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in California. Dressed in a bright green cap and gown, Biggie Smalls' oldest son (who is a spitting image of his father) proudly posed next to his famous mother while holding up a celebratory, homemade card that read "Class of 2014." "My first born son @cj_toa & I #proud," Evans captioned the happy picture. She also posted a photo of CeeJay receiving his diploma and wrote, "That's my boy @cj_toa »
For the three day weekend X-Men: Days of Future Past added another $100,000 to estimates, coming in at $90.8 million while tallying $110.5 million domestically for the four-day Memorial Day weekend and a $301.5 million worldwide total after four days in release. Interestingly enough, it's only the second largest opening for an X-Men film despite the rave reviews and "A" CinemaScore as 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, often considered one of the worst of the seven X-Men films released, hold the highest opening at $102.7 million. After a massive opening weekend, Godzilla fell 66.8% as X-Men took most of its audience. However, considering tracking only had the film opening around $70 million its opening weekend, which would have also been considered a solid opening for the monster movie, this weekend's $30.9 million ain't too shabby. The weekend's other new wide release was the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, which was destroyed by critics and opened to the tune of $14.2 million. »

The mutants ruled the multiplex over Memorial Day weekend. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" shot to the top of the box-office heap over the holiday, bringing in $91.4 million Friday-Sunday and an estimated $111 million Friday-Monday in over 4,000 locations, making it the second-largest opening of any "X-Men" film behind only "X-Men: The Last Stand." That Brett Ratner-directed threequel brought in $102.8 million over Memorial Day weekend 2006 (and $122.8 million over all four days). Among more recent entries in the "X-Men" franchise, "Days of Future Past" was a vast improvement on 2011's "X-Men: First Class" ($55.1 million opening) as well as last summer's "The Wolverine" ($53.1 million), while among Memorial Day weekend openers it ranks fifth of all-time behind 2007's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The World's End," 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and last summer's "Fast & Furious 6." As compared with other superhero entries this year, "Days »

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hit theaters this weekend and went on to gross slightly over $90 million and is on its way to earn $110 million through Monday. Internationally, the movie took in another $171 million for a worldwide debut of $261 million, the best of any "X-Men" film. The previous record was held by "X-Men: The Last Stand," which earned $203 million. "Days of Future Past" cost $200 million to make, which means that it's already profitable. And it's getting lots of praise from critics, currently sitting on a 91% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. The other wide release of the weekend was Adam Sandler's "Blended" comedy, which took third place with only $14.2 million and has a lousy 15% fresh rating. Even though it will eventually end up at $18 million through the holiday weekend, that's still one of the worst openings for a Sandler movie in recent times, only topping "That's My Boy" ($13.5 million). But because »
You'd have to figure the end of the line was coming for Adam Sandler sooner or later, no? Adam Sandler movies usually generate pretty negative reviews, but his latest, Blended, seemed to draw a different, more specific sort of ire, with critics blasting Sandler's particularly conservative view of contemporary families and sex roles. And now it seems as if audiences have also rejected Blended. Adam Sandler's latest opened to only $14.2 million, landing with a thud in third place this weekend. That's only slightly better than the $13.4 million taken in by That's My Boy a couple of years ago, the worst opening weekend of Sandler's career. Of course, that was an R-rated movie, and this is a more broadly appealing film rejoining Sandler with Drew Barrymore. The two last co-starred in 50 First Dates, which actually opened to slightly under $40 million ten years ago. That just wasn't enough nostalgia, however, for »
Los Angeles (AP) - A team of mutants overpowered one massive mutant monster at the box office during the Memorial Day holiday.
Fox-Marvel's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" debuted with $91 million beating last weekend's No. 1 hit, the Warner Bros. sci-fi adventure "Godzilla," which earned $31.4 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
"Days of Future Past" is estimated to earn nearly $110 million over the four-day extended holiday weekend, which would make it the fifth-highest Memorial Day opener just after last year's $117 million-grossing "Fast & Furious 6." ''Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" holds as the highest Memorial holiday debut ever with $140 million in 2007.
It appears the attention "Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer has received lately due a sexual assault lawsuit didn't deter fans from flocking to the theater. The director dropped out of doing any press for the film following the allegations because he didn't »

X-Men: Days of Future Past dominated the box office over Memorial Day weekend, though it fell short of setting a new record for the 14-year-old franchise. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler's Blended bombed.X-Men also opened day-and-date in most foreign markets and earned a phenomenal $171.1 million. By next weekend, it will pass The Wolverine ($282 million) to become the highest-grossing X-Men movie ever. For more details, see the Around-the-World Roundup below.Playing at nearly 4,000 locations, X-Men: Days of Future Past earned $90.8 million over the three-day weekend. Among recent superhero movies, that's a bit lower than Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($91.6 million). Among X-Men movies, it ranks second all-time behind X-Men: The Last Stand ($102.8 million), which opened on the same weekend eight years ago. It also sold fewer tickets than 2D-only entries X2: X-Men United and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Still, it was nearly $40 million higher than last Summer's The Wolverine, »

Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past is the fourth film of 2014 to come in over $90 million, though just barely as it's estimated the mutant mash-up scored $90.7 million ($261 million total worldwide as of today). The result is $600,000 below tracking, but the "A" CinemaScore bodes well for its sophomore session... Well, sort of... Godzilla obviously felt the pain of X-Men's opening, dropping a whopping 66% for a $31.4 million weekend after a great opening last weekend. In the case of X-Men, it will have at least one weekend without direct, genre competition, but a week later comes Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow, which is already earning good buzz. The week's other new wide release, Blended, the third teaming of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, opened with only $14.2 million, which is less than Sandler's 2000 release Little Nicky and just barely beats 2012's That's My Boy. Yeah, it's actually his worst opening for a PG- »

The mutants of past and future are commanding the Memorial Day weekend box office as X-Men: Days of Future Past puts up an opening day worthy of 2014's other big comic book movie releases. The other newcomer, counter-programmed Blended, got put through the blender by critics and emerged as another dud for former box office stud Adam Sandler.
Fox can only be thrilled with the estimated $36 million that X-Men: Days of Future Past from director Bryan Singer scored on Friday, including $8.1 million from late midnight showings. The mutant-fueled opening day starring the likes of Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen is playing right alongside this year's other big comic movies, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which earned $35.2 million and $36.9 million, respectively, on their opening days with the added benefit of 3D IMAX screenings that X-Men does not have. »
X-Men: Days of Future Past opened strong on Friday, and will almost certainly earn over $100 million over the holiday weekend. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler's Blended fell short of modest expectations.The seventh installment in the X-Men franchise earned an estimated $36 million on Friday. That's about on par with recent superhero movies Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($36.9 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($35.2 million). Unfortunately, it's significantly lower than X-Men: The Last Stand's $45.1 million debut on the same day eight years ago.The movie is receiving strong reviews (91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and good word-of-mouth ("A" CinemaScore), so it should hold up better than The Last Stand. If it plays like last year's Fast & Furious 6, it will wind up just below $110 million for the four-day frame.In second place, Godzilla plummeted 77 percent to $8.8 million. That's a horrible drop on par with notoriously front-loaded movies like Cloverfield (76 percent) and Ang »

In theaters Friday, May 23 2 1/2 stars (out of 4 stars) The carcasses left behind from Adam Sandler's movies aren't pretty. You Don’t Mess With The Zohan. That's My Boy. Grown Ups. Grown Ups 2. The one with Keri Russell. The one where he played fraternal twins. Photos: Costars reunited! But even those befuddled by the appeal of SNL's guitar-playing man-boy (now 47!) must admit that he’s never been more charming than when he flirts with Drew Barrymore in front of a camera. Whether he’s serenading her on an [...] »
Friday Am Update: Playing at 2,900 locations, X-Men: Days of Future Past opened to $8.1 million from late Thursday shows. That's lower than recent superhero movies Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($10.2 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($8.7 million). Still, it's twice as much as The Wolverine earned from similar 10 p.m. shows last Summer. For the four-day weekend, X-Men is still likely to wind up over $100 million.Forecast: Uniting the casts from the original series and the First Class reboot, X-Men: Days of Future Past is poised for one of the biggest openings of the year this weekend. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler comedy Blended targets family audiences over the long Memorial Day weekend.In some ways, the X-Men franchise kicked off the modern era of superhero blockbusters. The original movie arrived in Summer 2000, nearly two years before Sam Raimi's Spider-Man hit theaters, and spawned two very successful sequels. From there, the franchise »

The following is an open letter to the Hooters restaurant chain.
When you agreed to have the film's opening scene set in one of your restaurants -- and even allowed a monkey to be dressed as a Hooters waitress -- had you not gotten the memo that Blended isn't like Sandler's recent movies? Maybe you were expecting Blended to be the latest installment in Sandler's series of exceedingly raunchy and breathtakingly idiotic comedies. I expected it also, assuming that Blended would carry on the maturity-deficient tradition of Grown Ups, Jack and Jill, That's My Boy and the criminally unnecessary Grown Ups 2. Had this been the case, Hooters and Blended would have been a perfect marketing match, because Hooters and its fellow breastaurant chains are criminally unnecessary also. (Just kidding! Hooters may be the »
