The Wedding Crashers are going to be crashing a different type of party this summer — the party at Google’s Headquarters in Silicon Valley. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn will be starring in “The Internship,” which hits theaters on June 7. And you guessed it, they play interns at Google.
The trailer released yesterday explains the premise of the film. Nick (Wilson) and Billy (Vaughn) are two successful salesmen, until their company closes because “everything is computerized now.” Although Nick says people have a “deep distrust of machines,” Billy suggests they apply for an internship at Google.
The rest is all about the blue, green, red and yellow logo. They play ping pong, eat the free food and try and survive the internship program at Google’s carefree campus. Sure, they are older than the rest of the college interns, but that’s the whole point of the comedy. Shawn Levy, who directed “Night at the Museum,” directed the movie, parts of which were shot at the actual Google campus.
In a Google Hangout yesterday, hosted by Conan O’Brien, Vaughn and Wilson shared their excitement about the movie and also revealed that Vaughn was Wilson’s intern when he first moved to California.
And for those wondering if the movie will be as funny as “Wedding Crashers,” Wilson and Vaughn did say their chemistry is back. “Takes a half a day to get those rhythms and chemistry percolating,” Wilson said. Vaughn added, “We kind of picked up where we left off.”
