Warner Bros. has released a new Horrible Bosses 2 trailer for the upcoming comedy sequel. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprise their roles from the first film, and this time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture. When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom. This trailer isn’t quite as funny as the previous one, but there are still some standout jokes thanks to the main trio. While comedy follow-ups are incredibly hard to pull off, the chemistry of Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis is fantastically infectious so I’m optimistic here. Moreover, between this and Stretch, Pine is proving himself to be quite the comedic talent.
Watch the new theatrical Horrible Bosses 2 trailer after the jump. Directed by Sean Anders, the film also stars Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey. Horrible Bosses 2 opens in theaters on November 26th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Horrible Bosses 2:
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.
