Free Screenings Of “The Internship” Offered Today For Interns (Or Anyone)

The Internship The Internship, the comedy movie where Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson become Google interns, has declared it "National Intern Day" in order to offer interns, or really anyone, a chance to attend a free screening of the film tonight. The screenings are happening in a variety of US cities and begin at 7:30pm local time. You don't have to prove your an intern in any way, with the film joking it's fine if you just know an intern or "can spell the word 'intern'," then you can get admitted. But admission is first come, first serve, so show up early. The Internship posted a list of cities with th [...]

Google Stands In For “The Emerald City” In The Internship Movie

Vaughn Wilson The Internship There's a scene near the climax of the film The Internship, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson (opening June 7), where they and their team of Google summer interns try to sell a local pizza restaurant on Google advertising (presumably AdWords). Many of the different Google tools and services are paraded out (i.e., search, Google Maps, Google Trends/Insights), while veteran sales guy Vaughn tells the restaurant owner that he, too, was once afraid of change. The scene could be cut out of the move and used as "sales collateral" in Google's effort to bring small businesses into the AdWord [...]

The Internship: A Fun Movie, But Also A Beautiful Google Commercial

internship-movie-featured The Internship is great, a  funny film by director Shawn Levy (screenplay by Vince Vaughn and Jared Stern) well-worth seeing by anyone who likes underdog stories. But one thing that wasn't an underdog was Google itself. It won throughout the movie. I got to view the film during a press screening on Thursday. It's easy to imagine that many will come away from the movie thinking that Google is the greatest place to work, produces fantastic products and is focused on making the world better. And if you didn't get that last point, without giving too much away, it'll be stated, at the end. F [...]

How Much Buzz Did ‘The Internship” Movie Trailer Get During Google+ Hangout?

In a nutshell... not that much. You'd think that a big promotional event like this would get a little more attention in social media channels right off the bat. But as with most online marketing and viral campaigns, it seems like it's going to be a slow roll to get people talking about the movie. With a nationwide opening date of June 7th, there's still time. As was announced last weekend (we first discovered it via Facebook), 'The Internship’ held a special Hangout On Air earlier today to debut the official movie trailer, featuring host Conan O'Brien and actors Vince Vaughn and Owen [...]

It's set to happen on Wednesday, February 13th at 11:00 am PT. TV's Conan O'Brien will host the hangout. The producers are also hoping to create some buzz across Google+ by encouraging users to submit questions for Vaughn and Wilson via video, using the hashtag #theinternship. They've also created a Google+ Pag [...]

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: [caption id="attachment_31325" align="aligncenter" width="300"] The Internship, official movie poster, via[/caption] Unfortunately, at press time, Google doesn't yet have a search easter egg for "Hiring them was a brilliant mistake." - perhaps that [...]

Now Filming At Google: “The Internship” With Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson

google-campus-featured We wrote earlier about a new movie, "The Internship," starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as slightly-older-than-normal Google interns. Some of the filming is now happening at Google itself. The comedy stars Vaughn and Wilson as 40-something salesmen who, after getting laid-off, begin anew as interns with Google. Filming began in August at the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta, where a pseudo-Google had been created. But now it's happening today at Google itself, with a set operating on the main campus: It's been filming here since at least Friday and still going today (I'm co [...]
