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.

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.

The cast of MTV’s Teen Wolf stopped by WonderCon on Saturday to give fans a taste of what is to come in the show’s much anticipated third season. Before the panel, I was able to sit down for a roundtable interview with star Dylan O’Brien, who plays the much loved “Stiles” Stilinski on the show, to discuss what’s new in Beacon Hills. O’Brien hinted at a lot of secrets being revealed about Deaton and the Argents, as well has his new relationship with Lydia. He also talked about the possibility of collaborating with creator/executive producer Jeff Davis to write a full episode of the show sometime in the future. Hit the jump for what he had to say. Season three of MTV’s Teen Wolf premieres Monday, June 3rd.
MTV’s hit series Teen Wolf, originally based on the 1985 movie about high school student-turned-werewolf, has moved beyond its roots over its first two seasons to develop fascinating characters and an ever-growing mythology. Teen Wolf stars Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien and creator/executive producer Jeff Davis took the stage at WonderCon to give fans a closer look at the show’s third season.
Some highlights from the panel include a clip from an upcoming episode, details about the alpha pack, Stiles’ potential future as an FBI agent, and more. Check out the full panel recap after the jump. The new season of Teen Wolf premieres Monday, June 3rd on MTV.
The first trailer for director Shawn Levy’s upcoming comedy The Internship has been released online. The film stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two old school salesmen who haven’t kept up with the digital age. When they suddenly become unemployed, they attempt to remake themselves by interning at a major tech company. The trailer shows that the chemistry between Vaughn and Wilson is still strong and there are plenty of one-liners and laughs to be found without giving the whole movie away. A very promising start for The Internship.

The First Time is a modern and realistic look at the angst and excitement of young love. Dave (Dylan O’Brien) is a high school senior who meets Aubrey (Britt Robertson), a junior, one night at a party and a casual conversation sparks a connection that keeps drawing them back to each other. From writer/director Jonathan Kasdan, the film also stars Victoria Justice, Craig Robertson, Joshua Malina and Christine Taylor. For more on the film, here’s the trailer.
At the film’s press day, actor Dylan O’Brien spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what drew him to this story and role, how relieved he was with the positive response as the film started to screen at film festivals, really staying in the moment as an actor, and how memorable the entire experience was. He also talked about what it was like to make The Internship with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, and how director Shawn Levy is going for a more PG-13 family feel, that they’ll return to shoot Season 3 of his MTV series Teen Wolf in December, with 24 episodes now, how he has no idea what’s to come for Stiles, and that he has no idea what Stiles’ first name is. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
The first trailer is online for writer/director Jonathan Kasdan’s The First Time. The romantic comedy centers on a burgeoning romance between two high school teens. Unlike other films of this ilk, Kasdan’s take seems to be incredibly honest at capturing the awkwardness of the titular event. While the leads are unrealistically attractive, the chemistry is absolutely electric between the two of them. It’s looking like Sony made a good decision in picking the John Hughes-esque film up from Sundance.
The First Time stars Brittany Robertson, Dylan O’Brien, Craig Roberts, James Frecheville and Victoria Justice. Be sure to check out Steve’s interview with Kasdan here. Hit the jump to check out the trailer.
Three bits of casting additions to finish your week off. Here they are in brief:

One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was writer-director Jonathan Kasdan‘s (In the Land of Women) The First Time. The film stars Brittany Robertson, Dylan O’Brien, Craig Roberts, James Frecheville and Victoria Justice. Like Richard Linklater‘s Before Sunrise (one of my favorite films), The First Time is about watching two people fall in love, except instead of taking place over one night in Vienna, The First Time takes place over a weekend and it’s about two High School students. While I’ve seen many High School celluloid love stories crash and burn before the end credits, Kasdan pulled me in with believable dialogue, realistic situations, and he reminded me what it feels like to be seventeen and unsure of everything. While I saw a lot of films at this year’s Sundance, The First Time was one of my favorites.
Shortly after the Festival ended, I sat down with Kasdan for an extended interview. We talked about Sundance, the influence of Before Sunrise, how he used his own personal experiences in the script, casting, getting financing, the contrast between making studio movies versus smaller films, improv vs. sticking to the script, future projects, the irony of “discovering” talent such as Kristen Stewart before they are “box office gold,” and a lot more.

A trailer is now available for High Road, the fully-improvised comedy by director Matt Walsh (The Hangover). Cast with a ridiculous number of improv comedians at all different levels of fame, High Road stars relative unknowns in the principal roles. James F. Pumphrey (Players) is Fitz, a well-meaning drug-dealer who hits the road to escape his problems and encounters some strange characters along the way. The strong supporting cast features Ed Helms, Rob Riggle, Horatio Sans, Kyle Gass, Abby Elliott, Lizzy Caplan and Zach Woods. While it plays like a mash-up of Harold and Kumar and Pineapple Express, I can’t quite figure out if it’s destined to be a cult classic or a simple misfire. Hit the jump to check out the trailer for High Road.
