This post contains a few video treats from two of this summer’s R-rated comedies with two-word titles. Firstly, Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Horrible Bosses, led by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day. There is enough in common with the first trailer that I was initially unable to distinguish between the two, but there is enough new footage to be worth a look. Even better, the new trailer is accompanied by a Horrible Bosses clip (approximately 97% new footage) which features the three stars on a stakeout. Horrible Bosses opens July 8.
To accommodate my theme, Columbia has released the first two clips for Bad Teacher starring Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, and Jason Segel. I found one of the clips quite funny — the other less so. Let’s see how well you know me in the comments! Bad Teacher opens June 24. Watch the whole shebang after the break.

For Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Spacey, Farrell, Aniston) 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 (Foxx), 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.
Click here for all our Bad Teacher coverage. L’official synopsis:
Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz). She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch). When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
