Corporate Animals (2019) : Lucy (Demi Moore) is the egotistical megalomaniac CEO of Incredible Edibles, America’s premier provider of edible cutlery. In her infinite wisdom, Lucy leads her staff including her long-suffering assistants, Freddie (Karan Soni) and Jess (Jessica Williams), on a corporate team-building caving weekend to New Mexico.
When disaster strikes, not even their useless guide, Brandon (Ed Helms), can save them. Trapped underground by a cave-in, this mismatched and disgruntled group must pull together in order to survive.
Corporate Animals’ Trailer: Get Ready For A Razzie-Worthy Demi Moore Performance
Screen Media has released a pair of trailers (red or green band, depending on your mood) for Corporate Animals, the horror comedy starring Demi Moore and Ed Helms that bowed in the Midnight section of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It hits theaters and on-demand September 20.
Moore plays Lucy, the delusional (OK, terrible) CEO of a struggling startup aimed at millennials. In her infinite wisdom, she leads her staff, including her long-suffering assistants Jess (Jessica Williams) and Freddie (Karan Soni), on a team-building retreat in the caves of New Mexico, led by an overeager guide (Ed Helms). When disaster strikes and the food runs out, mandatory office bonding becomes a lot more … appetizing.
Calum Worthy, Nasim Pedrad, Dan Bakkedahl, Martha Kelly, Isiah Whitlock Jr and Jennifer Kim co-star in the film, directed by Patrick Brice from Sam Bain’s screenplay. Helms and Mike Falbo of Pacific Electric Picture Co. produced with Jess Wu Calder and Keith Calder of Snoot Entertainment.
