One of the films I’m really excited to see this June is director Shawn Levy’s The Internship. Starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, The Internship finds them playing 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 film also stars Rose Byrne, Dylan O’Brien, Max Minghella, Jessica Szohr, and a few very cool cameos.
Last summer, when the production was filming in Atlanta, I got to visit the set and watched some great improv between Vaughn and Wilson that had everyone in the room laughing as soon as Levy called cut. It was abundantly clear that even though Vaughn and Wilson hadn’t worked together since Wedding Crashers, they still had great chemistry. In addition, I got to talk with the cast as well as Levy, and closer to release I’ll be running the interviews. Until then, 20th Century Fox is letting us premiere the first teaser poster and it’s after the jump, along with more on the film. The Internship opens June 7.
Here’s the first poster from Levy’s The Internship. Click to enlarge:

Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention
