If it is December, chances are you will probably be invited to a Christmas Party to celebrate Yule Tides and Season’s Greetings. Of course, at these parties there’s bound to be some egg nog with a little alcoholic kick to it, which leads to some sort of drunken shenanigans, dumping one’s feelings over the office crush, and a nice hangover the next morning.
Now, a new comedy called Office Christmas Party will explore all those regrettable themes. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, and since this is a movie, things get seriously out of hand.

Watch out, WALL-E. There’s a new robot in the neighborhood to adore. Meet Baymax, the huggable and heroic star of Disney’s adaptation of a Marvel comic.
Big Hero 6 earns much respect and a high ranking in the canon of productions by Walt Disney Animation Studios. Disney is showing its studio competitors who remains boss in this business. Baymax, Hiro, and company prove that to be at the top of one’s game, you need to work hard and act with good intentions. They check off nearly every box in the book.
Moderator Chris Hardwick introduced the panel for Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6, their first animated feature based on Marvel Comics characters.
First up were directors Chris Williams and Don Hall, as well as producer Roy Conli. They started working on it and pitched it three years ago, right around the time of New York Comic-Con.
A clip is then shown. Set in San Fransokyo, a slightly futuristic city with a real feel to it, we find young genius Hiro not using his gifts in good ways. His brother, Tadashi, hoping to set him on a better path, lures him to his university lab. “Welcome to the Nerd Lab.” It is there that he is introduced to Baymax, a robotic healthcare companion (kinda resembles the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man), and the other nerds: Honey Lemon, Go-Go, Wasabi (“I spilled Wasabi on my shirt one time people!”), and Fred (who’s not really a student there, just a part-time mascot who thinks science is cool).
Over the weekend Dimension Films brought their all-star comic book noir sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill Forto the San Diego Comic-Con for a panel with director Robert Rodriguez, Sin City creator/writer/artist Frank Miller, and several of the film’s stars in attendance. In addition to the celebrity presence some new footage was screened, including an extended red band trailer.
That trailer is now online for all to behold. You can watch it here below.
Sin City represented the neo-noir styles of the comic book come to life. Black and white colors, with ultra violence, stylized sex scenes, and gritty imagery that can only come from Frank Miller and be visualized into real life by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.
While the latter won’t return for a guest directing vignette, Rodriguez returns to direct its sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, armed with a script written by Miller, some returning cast members like Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson, and some new additions like Josh Brolin replacing Clive Owen as Dwight, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Powers Boothe, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, and more.
Dimension Films has released a brand new trailer for the film, and it is only a glimpse into the dangerous world that is Sin City. Hit the jump to check it out.
