Seth Gordon's office place comedy, "Horrible Bosses," should be one of your most anticipated comedies of the summer because it boasts an impressive cast: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, SNL's Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen.

Jonathan Goldstein and ex-"Freaks and Geeks" star John Francis Daley penned the script, and Playlist members who read it last year raved. Gordon directed the outstanding documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" and then used the film's success as a calling card to parlay a career in directing feature-length comedies. He stumbled out of the gate with his first narrative comedy, "Four Christmases" — leads Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn apparently fought throughout — but Gordon seems acutely talented. We're hoping 'Bosses' is major redemption and it ranks high on our 2011's most anticipated films.

So what's it about? Well, simple, it's a black comedy focusing on three best friends (Bateman, Sudeikis, Day) who, fed up with abuse from their employers, enlist the help of a scam artist called Motherfucker Jones (Jamie Foxx) to help murder them. Who's the employer and who's the employees? Well, the posters tell the full story. Full versions, plus one new image, below.

"Horrible Bosses" hits theaters July 8. Make it a work function? Here's the trailer if you missed it.
