Three New Preview Clips for Horrible Bosses Get Their Murder On
06.29.11 by Ryan
The R–comedies of the summer season have found remarkable success so far, with The Hangover 2 edging out Bridesmaids for the top grosser with $527 million worldwide (though Bridesmaids' $168 million-and-counting worldwide take is also impressive). While Bad Teacher couldn't match up against the family–friendly 3-D of Cars 2, the Cameron Diaz comedy still fared well, opening to $31 million last weekend.
Warner Bros. is hoping to continue the success they had found with The Hangover Part II with director Seth Gordon's Horrible Bosses, which follows three friends (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis) who band together to kill their respective employers (Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston, and Kevin Spacey). The premise certainly seems like one audiences can get behind, since many are likely have the same fantasy. To help promote the movie, the studio has released three preview clips to Yahoo! to give audiences a taste of the movie before it opens next month.
In the first clip, Dale (Day) tells his boss, the sexually-harassing Dr. Harris (Aniston), of his engagement.
The second clip finds Nick (Bateman) learning that Dale and Kurt (Sudeikis) have already contacted a hitman via the Internet.
In the third clip, "murder consultant" M.F. Jones (Jamie Foxx) dispenses some critical advice to the three friends.
Horrible Bosses opens July 8th, and co-stars Donald Sutherland and Julie Bowen. To see another preview clip between Spacey and Bateman, head here, and to watch a clip of the three friends surveying Farrell's house, head here.
