Some ideas just aren’t cut out for sequels. ‘The Hangover’ was ingenious and hilarious—for one movie. But another ‘Hangover’? With the same guys? That doesn’t make a ton of sense. ‘The Blue Lagoon’ was striking and exotic. But a ‘Return to the Blue Lagoon’? More castaways? On the exact same deserted island? Sorry, no thanks. To the list of concepts that could not support a sequel but got one anyway, we can now add ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ a flimsy retread of the 2011 comedy that had barely enough material to fill one film.
Horrible Bosses 2
If you thought we wouldn't get to take pleasure in seeing Kevin Spacey's hilarious jerk of a boss steal at least one scene in 'Horrible Bosses 2,' think again. Universal has released the first official clip from the upcoming sequel, featuring Spacey's Dave Harken, in prison, delivering a lovely verbal smackdown to his former would-be killers.
A new, full trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' has arrived, and in it we see just what it is that has driven our favorite bad co-workers/besties to such horrible lengths this time around: turns out, being an entrepreneur isn't as easy as you might think, and neither is kidnapping ... or, uh, "kidnaping." They're not so great at spelling, either.
The second full trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' is here, and it features some seriously amateur kidnapping maneuvers, as the guys try to put together a foolproof plan to help Chris Pine's character get revenge on his dear old dad, played by Christoph Waltz. If these guys can't even spell "kidnapping" correctly, we don't see this thing turning out very well.
The first teaser trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' has arrived online, and so have the naughty trio of Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis, who are all back and badder than ever for the upcoming sequel -- along with some familiar faces, of course.
Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are back in 'Horrible Bosses 2,' and these working stiffs have some new adversaries to face. As New Line Cinema announced the start of production in Los Angeles, California (from which we've obtained the first set photos), the studio also revealed the official plot synopsis and the full involvement of newcomers Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz.
Though it was recently reported that 'Django Unchained' star Christoph Waltz would not be starring in the upcoming sequel, we are pleased to share the news that 'Horrible Bosses 2' has managed to hire Waltz after all. Waltz will be playing a bad guy -- of course -- alongside Chris Pine, who will play his son in one of the most inspired casting choices in recent memory.
In the first 'Horrible Bosses' film, the team of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day faced down a trio of awful employers and rode the box office to the tune of $117 million. Since those bosses were played by Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell, the upcoming 'Horrible Bosses 2' will have to up the ante. With Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine being eyed for the sequel, consider the ante officially upped.
When 'Horrible Bosses' came out in 2011, it was one of a wave of comedies unleashed that summer (including 'Bridesmaids,' 'The Hangover Part II' and 'Bad Teacher'), but it was also one of the most successful, as it made over a hundred million at the box office on a smaller budget. Though it's hard to know how Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman could have new horrible bosses, all have signed on for a sequel.
