So ‘Horrible’

KC’s Jason Sudeikis taunts jailbird Kevin Spacey, tries to “do a super-cool slo-mo walk” — and fails — and gets into more trouble in the new trailer for his next big movie, “Horrible Bosses 2.” In the sequel to his 2011 comedy (which raked in more than $200 million worldwide), he rejoins Jason Bateman and Charlie Day to try to launch their own business. This time Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine get in the way. It’s due in theaters for Thanksgiving, Nov. 26. Warning: The trailer is so not G-rated.

Battle of the Bulger

Johnny Depp has already played gangster John Dillinger and, of course, pirate Jack Sparrow. So naturally he’s the man to play jailed Boston mobster Whitey Bulger in an upcoming biopic. The movie doesn’t have a title yet but it does have a release date now: Sept. 18, 2015, says Variety. Scott Cooper has been shooting in Boston with a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Bulger’s law-abiding brother and Joel Edgerton as the FBI agent who was sentenced to 40 years in prison for aiding the criminal.
