Over the past few years, I’ve been extremely lucky as I’ve been able to visit a lot of movies when they’ve been filming around the globe. However, no matter where you get to go, visiting a movie set is usually the same: you spend hours watching from a distance, during a break in shooting you conduct interviews, and the production is always careful what you get to see while on set. But when 20th Century Fox invited me to the set of director Shawn Levy‘s The Internship, it was a unique opportunity, because unlike most set visits that have a number of journalists visiting on the same day, I spent the day with only two other reporters, and we had a ton of freedom to watch what we wanted and take in the production on our own terms. It turned out to be the perfect way to watch Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn work on a very funny scene.
If you’re not familiar with The Internship, which opens June 7th, the film reteams the Wedding Crashers stars as two out-of-work salesmen who attempt to reinvent themselves by competing against young up-and-comers for an internship at Google. The film also stars Max Minghella, Rose Byrne, Dylan O’Brien, and Jessica Szohr. As you might imagine, there’s plenty of opportunity to showcase Vaughn and Wilson being ill equipped to handle modern technology in funny ways. Hit the jump for more.
