Fox Movies Releases Google Logo Look-a-Like “The Internship” Teaser Movie Poster

Last week, the marketing team at Twentieth Century Fox gave an exclusive teaser image of the official movie poster for “The Internship” – the film that features Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as interns working for Google.

The official movie poster smartly plays off the recognizable Google logo and search function:

Unfortunately, at press time, Google doesn’t yet have a search easter egg for “Hiring them was a brilliant mistake.” – perhaps that will change in coming months as the film studio and Google ramp up marketing efforts.

Meanwhile, the movie has already secured its brand page on Facebook and Twitter @TheInternship.

We already knew that “The Internship” movie was being shot on location at the Googleplex in MountainView and the Georgia Tech campus was Google-fied to act as a backdrop for scenes in the movie.

Now, the movie poster confirms a release date of June 7th, and IMDB has an updated credited cast list  that includes fellow “Wedding Crashers” co-star Will Ferrell, John Goodman, Rose Byrne, and Josh Gad, the actor who is also starring as Steve Wozniak, to counter Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs  in the biopic “jOBS“, set to premiere this weekend at Sundance.

As Barry Schwartz also reported at SERoundtable, Googlers are buzzing about the movie over on their personal Google+ accounts, but there’s also a verified Google+ page for the movie itself:

It will be interesting to see how much marketing support Google will lend to the movie release, between G+ and hangouts and of course official movie trailer promotion on YouTube. No word yet on when that trailer will drop, but you can be sure we’re watching for it. (Of course, in the meantime, you can always watch J.B. Smoove talk about it on I Heard.)

Google Featured In Other Film Project

In related Google movie news, the documentary, “Google and the World Brain” opened up this week at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival here in Utah. The documentary focuses on the Google book scanning project and the quest to focus on cataloging the world’s information.

Previously, the YouTube sourced project, “Life in a Day” premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
