Directed by Valeri Vaughn and produced/narrated by Vince Vaughn, the documentary Art of Conflict (available exclusive on Netflix on June 1st) is a fascinating look at the political murals that are so prevalent all over Northern Ireland, and that express the pain and conflict that the country has had to deal with, often in very provocative and striking ways. For the production, Valeri and Vince Vaughn spent long stretches of time in the North, interviewing politicians on all sides of the divide, to present these intriguing works of art.
During this conference call to promote their documentary, Valeri and Vince talked about growing up in the Chicago suburbs and embracing their Irish roots, what their first experience in Ireland was like, how much fun they had working on the film together, that the art is really the focal point of the documentary, the most difficult aspect of their research, how important it was to document all of these murals before they’re removed, what it was like to film in Northern Ireland, how the murals are viewed within the community, and what their favorite documentaries are. Check out what they had to say after the jump.
DreamWorks has released a brief first trailer for Delivery Man. The trailer quickly sets up the premise: Vince Vaughn plays a sperm donor who ended up being the biological father to 533 kids due to a mix up at the clinic. Those kids are now suing to find out his identity. The movie is based off the Ken Scott‘s 2011 Canadian film Starbuck, which I heard was pretty good. Here’s hoping that Scott, who is helming the remake, can repeat his success.

The first clip from director Shawn Levy’s corporate comedy The Internship features stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson participating in an online interview. As two out-of-work salesmen looking to reinvent themselves in a digital world, it’s immediately apparent that they’re out of touch with modern technology. The Wedding Crashers chemistry is on display so if you liked it before, it looks like you’re in for more of the same. Be sure to get caught up on Steve’s set visit, including interviews with Levy, Wilson and Vaughn.
Also starring Rose Byrne, B.J. Novak, John Goodman, Dylan O’Brien and Josh Gad, The Internship opens June 7th. Hit the jump to watch the clip.
20th Century Fox has provided us with a number of new images from director Shawn Levy‘s The Internship, and a few of them are exclusive. If you’re not familiar with The Internship, which opens June 7th, the film reteams Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn 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.
Last year I got to visit the set when they were filming in Atlanta, and I watched the cast film a very funny scene featuring everyone getting to know one another. In take after take, I saw the way Vaughn, Wilson and Levy would slightly adjust the dialogue and reactions so they’d have plenty of choices in the editing room. In addition, it was great to see the cast and crew try and hold it together until Levy called cut. As soon as he did, the room lit up with laughter. Based on what I saw and learned on set, I think The Internship is going to be a winner. Hit the jump for the images.
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.
When you visit the set of a movie, you’re lucky to get ten to fifteen minutes with the main cast. It’s not because they don’t want to talk to you; it’s usually because they’re in every shot and they have limited time in between set-ups. However, when I visited the Atlanta set of The Internship last year with two other reporters, I did something I’ve never done on any movie set: I had lunch with the stars and director. When the production took their lunch break, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, and director Shawn Levy came over to where we were sitting and for about thirty minutes talked about the movie, how it came together, improv, what it’s been like working with Google, script changes, and so much more. As a big fan of all three people, it was an awesome way to conduct the interview. Hit the jump for what they had to say.

20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for director Shawn Levy’s comedy The Internship. The film reteams Wedding Crashers stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two out-of-work salesmen who attempt to reinvent themselves by competing against young up-and-comers for an internship at Google. This trailer delves a bit deeper into the film’s plot, as we learn that those competing for the internship at Google are split up into teams and Vaughn and Wilson find themselves in the “misfit” group. There are a few new jokes here and there, but the highlight is the appearance of Book of Mormon star Josh Gad who has a nice bit in this trailer.

We have a couple of casting stories for you this morning. First up, Vince Vaughn is in talks to star in the comedy Business Trip written by Steven Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness). No director is currently attached, and THR reports that the vague logline is simply “the story centers on a man who flies to Europe for business. Travel mayhem ensues.” We also don’t know much about Vaughn’s character, but I’m willing to bet it’s the same one he almost always plays. He’ll probably keep playing it in the comedies he has coming later this year, The Internship (June 7th) and The Delivery Man (October 4th).

Steve is currently in Las Vegas for CinemaCon, a convention for theater owners, and he was able to snap a photo of a couple of new posters for director Shawn Levy’s (Night at the Museum) upcoming comedy The Internship. The film reteams Wedding Crashers stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two out-of-work salesmen who attempt to reinvent themselves by competing against young up-and-comers for an internship at Google. The new posters boast the faces of both Vaughn and Wilson while revealing the film’s tagline, “Crashing the System,” which is in keeping with the generation gap-centric theme of the comedy.

A new international trailer for Shawn Levy’s The Internship is now available. Starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, The Internship centers on two out-of-work salesmen who attempt to reinvent themselves by competing against young up-and-comers for a Google internship. The first trailer showcased the humor we expected from the Wedding Crashers duo and the new cut is almost identical except for one additional bit that shows just how out of touch these two really are.

Fresh off the show’s highest ratings in 14 months thanks to one Justin Timberlake, a couple of exciting new hosts have been announced for Saturday Night Live’s April episodes. Melissa McCarthy will return to host for her second time on April 6th with musical guest Phoenix, while Vince Vaughn is set to host again on April 13th with musical guest Miguel, marking his first time hosting since 1998. McCarthy’s episode of SNL last February was fantastic, so I’m really looking forward to seeing her back on the show. Hit the jump to garlic ranch blast me now.
