Nothing says “The Holidays” like a night of debauchery — and Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.” As Mindy Kaling says in the new The Night Before trailer, you can cry, run, and party to it. There’s also no other song and artist that perfectly encapsulates the raunchy comedy that’ll ensue when Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie get together for one epic Christmas party.
There’s not that much new footage in the trailer, but it’s more about the track that’ll likely be a centerpiece for this film. After all, these three best buds came in like a holiday wrecking ball. From the Wu-Tang Clan onesie to Rogen losing his drug-addled mind in church and vomiting all over the aisle, The Night Before has that Evan Goldberg edge. The funny man and longtime Rogen collaborator penned the script along with director Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir. This combination has some kind of magic, as the latter two will be rejoining Rogen and Goldberg on their animated raunchfest Sausage Party and as producers on the Neighbors sequel.
Until then we have this story about one epic Christmas party that propels three friends into a night they’ll never forget. Watch the footage below. Cyrus even makes an appearance in the footage to belt her famous song. The Night Before will hit theaters on November 20th and also features Lizzy Caplan, Michael Shannon, Jillian Bell, and Kanye West.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for the film:
From Jonathan Levine, the acclaimed director of 50/50, comes the new comedy The Night Before. Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.
