The trailer is just over one and a half minutes long, and features many of the original cast as well as newcomers Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine. Dale (Charlie Day), Nick (Jason Bateman), and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) are all now the bosses of their own businesses, but it's not going the way they had planned. They become entrepreneurs but an scam investor steals everything away. They need to return to their old ways when their new business venture is stolen out from under them.

The trailer features the trio going to visit Dave (Kevin Spacey) in jail, and he isn't exactly happy to see them. Next, the men go to see Motherf---er Jones (Jamie Foxx), who has a larger role on the team after helping Dave blackmail his boss Julia to stop harassing him at work. The group are now trying to kidnap one of their new bosses for ransom in order to steal back their business, and use their old methods to do so.

The trio are shown running around and trying to plan out their new adventure so they don't get caught again. They are shown looking in the trunk of a car and slow motion walking away from a bar until they decide that it's stupid. There are flashy cars, bags of money and swat teams searching abandon buildings as well as plenty of guns and dangerous situations for everyone involved.

On June 30 USA Today posted new information about the upcoming sequel, including that the trio will have to deal with their former bosses in order to destroy their new ones. Jennifer Aniston (Julia) make another appearance as Dale's horny boss and she is still as crazy as ever. Since they have her on blackmail, she can help them steal back their business and Dale won't have to work as a dental assistant anymore. It also marks the first time Aniston has ever appeared in a sequel, as well as the original film.

"Horrible Bosses 2" is expected to arrive in theaters on November 26. The screenplay for the film was written by Sean Anders, Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley, while John Morris and Michael Markowitz contributed to the characters. Sean Anders is also directing the project and has worked with several of the main cast members on previous films.
