MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF/CNET) – “The Internship” is Hollywood’s latest stab at life in Silicon Valley. In the movie’s newly released trailer, the two “Wedding Crashers” stars ham it up on the Web’s giant’s famous campus.
To their shock and horror, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn realize that by landing an internship at Google, they are actually “looking at some sort of mental ‘Hunger Games’ against a bunch of genius kids for just a handful of jobs.”

This scene is shown in the recently-released trailer (see below) for the upcoming movie titled “The Internship.” The film features the two “Wedding Crashers” stars as they try to make it in the world of Google’s high-tech interns. The only catch is that they’re “so old” and aren’t exactly tech savvy.
The trailer shows the two friends as they try to make sense of a Rubik’s cube contest, a see-through dry-erase wall, and how to “debug the code” on Google’s famous campus.
According to The Sun, Google has been very supportive about the use of its campus and facilities for the film. “We’re excited that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson chose the Google campus as a backdrop for their first film together since Wedding Crashers,” Google told The Sun. “We’re sure they’ll have a humorous take on life in Silicon Valley and look forward to seeing the result.”
“The Internship” is one of many tech world-focused movies to grace the silver screen in the last couple of years. Aaron Sorkin’s “The Social Network” showed the inside world of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, and two movies on Steve Jobs are in the works. One called “Jobs” is starring Ashton Kutcher and the other directed by Aaron Sorkin is based on the bestselling book by Walter Isaacson called “Steve Jobs.”
“The Internship” is set to premiere this June.
