  • The follow-up to the 2011 hit comedy “Horrible Bosses” reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone’s favorite working stiffs: Nick, Dale and Kurt.  Jennifer Aniston (“We’re the Millers”), and Oscar® winners Jamie Foxx (“Ray”) and Kevin Spacey (“American Beauty,” “The Usual Suspects”) also reprise their “Horrible Bosses” starring roles, while Chris Pine (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”) and Oscar® winner Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained,” “Inglourious Basterds”) star as new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success.

    Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.”  But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them.  Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.  

  • The dramatic comedy "This is Where I Leave You" is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper.  It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman ("Arrested Development"); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey ("30 Rock"); and two-time Oscar® winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and 2013 Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda ("Klute," "Coming Home," HBO's "The Newsroom").  

    When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens.  Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humour, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.  

    Levy, who helmed the blockbuster "Night at the Museum" films, as well as "Date Night" and "Real Steel," directs from a screenplay by Jonathan Tropper.  

    The film also stars Adam Driver (HBO's "Girls"), Rose Byrne ("Bridesmaids," "X-Men: First Class"), Corey Stoll ("House of Cards," "Midnight in Paris"), Kathryn Hahn (NBC's "Parks and Recreation").

  • For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. 

    Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few too many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers... permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best-laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
