Wedding Crashers stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have reteamed for The Internship, a comedy about two unemployed salesman who land an internship at Google. The first trailer for the film has debuted on, you guessed it, Google+ hangout.
Google really seems to be quite involved with the film, as it was shot on the Google campus, and they seem to be heavily involved in the marketing. Hopefully the film can offer more than just an expensive marketing scheme for Google, as Vaughn and Wilson have charisma to spare.
Take a look at the trailer below, via Google+:
It looks like the film is packed with younger comedians playing Google employees, such as Aasif Mandvi, Josh Gad, B.J. Novak, Dylan O’Brien, Rose Byrne and Max Minghella. Will Farrell is already confirmed for a cameo in the film, similar to his appearance in Wedding Crashers. The film is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum). Vaughn co-wrote the screenplay with Jared Stern (The Watch).
Take a look at the Google-influenced poster below:
The filmmakers have stressed that Google in no way funded the film, but if marketing continues in this fashion leading up to its June 7, 2013 release, this will be a discussion worth having.
