There’s lots of raunchy business in first trailer for ‘Office Christmas Party’

Typical office holiday parties aren’t exactly the stuff that makes for good Hollywood fare, but Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks are mining that annual tradition for their latest big-screen comedy, the aptly titled Office Christmas Party.

The studios released the first trailer for the film this week, and it features just the sort of raunchy shenanigans one would expect from a film about a booze-fueled company party that goes horribly wrong — or right, depending on how you look at it.

Blades of Glory filmmakers Josh Gordon and Will Speck directed Office Christmas Party, which reunites the pair with Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston, who starred in the directing duo’s 2010 comedy The Switch.

The film follows an unpredictable exec played by T.J. Miller (Deadpool, Silicon Valley) and his chief technical officer, played by Bateman, who set out to save their company by throwing the greatest holiday party of all time in order to impress a client and win the contract that will keep them — and their staff — employed. Aniston plays the CEO of the company, who forces Miller and Bateman’s characters to close the deal or have their branch shut down.

The script for Office Christmas Party was penned by Bad Teacher writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, along with Hot in Cleveland writer Laura Solon.

The film also stars Ghostbusters actress Kate McKinnon and X-Men: Apocalypse actress Olivia Munn, as well as Vanessa Bayer, Jillian Bell, Jamie Chung, Rob Corddry, Abbey Lee, Karan Soni, Courtney B. Vance, and Matt Walsh.

Office Christmas Party hits theaters December 9 — just in time for the holiday season.

Flamin’ Hot cast on Eva Longoria’s direction, challenges of playing real people
A worker stands against the shelves in Flamin' Hot.

The creation of the spicy version of Cheetos is the subject of the new dramedy from Searchlight Pictures, Flamin' Hot. Yes, you read that correctly. Flamin' Hot Cheetos has a movie, but it's the people behind its creation where the story lies. At the center of Flamin' Hot is Richard Montañez (Jesse Garcia), a Mexican-American man who claims to have invented Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Originally hired as a janitor, Richard's ambitious ideas helped inspire the Flamin' Hot product line, and his drive led him to become a marketing executive at Frito-Lay. The film is inspired by Montañez's memoir A Boy, a Burrito and a Cookie: From Janitor to Executive. 

Directed by Eva Longoria, Flamin' Hot is a rags-to-riches tale about a Latino man who turned his life around and never stopped dreaming, no matter what life threw his way. Co-starring alongside Garcia is Annie Gonzalez as Judy, Richard's wife; Dennis Haysbert as Clarence C. Baker, a Frito-Lay employee and Richard's mentor; and Matt Walsh as Lonny, Richard's pessimistic boss. Though Montañez probably didn't invent the spicy snack, Flamin' Hot still provides a feel-good story with humor, family, and love.
