SYNOPSIS. Nick (Owen Wilson) and Billy (Vince Vaughn) battle it out with the techies in The Internship as two old-school salesmen in their 40s who use old fashioned charm and brilliant sales technique to sell watches. On the night that they try to close a big sale with a client, to their shock, they find that their company has been shut down because kids don’t wear watches anymore. Suddenly, they find themselves unemployed as two dinosaurs in the digital world.
After an exhaustive job search online, Billy chanced upon an opportunity for them to reinvent themselves – an internship program with Google.
20th Century Fox now brings the latest trailer of The Internship tracking the misadventures of Wilson and Vaughn as they try to pass an internship interview at Google. As seen on the trailer, the interview is conducted via Google Hangout and the two being first-time online interviewees get too close to the camera and shout loudly into the microphone. As luck would have it, the two passes the internship interview through common sense, imagination and charm.
At Google, where it’s worlds away from anything they have experienced before, they find themselves in a sea of tech-savvy 20-year-olds who they need to compete against to win a full-time employment at Google.
They eventually team up with a sexually curious nerd, a mobile phone obsessed geek and Yoyo (Raphael) a genius Asian kid who lacks social and common life skills and Lyle who is an underdog who wants to fit in. Going through training and competing with kids half their age, they are hell-bent to prove that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself. The movie also stars Rose Byrne, John Goodman, Dylan O’Brien and Josh Gad.
The Internship will open on June 7 in Philippine cinemas, courtesy of 20th Century Fox.
