First Poster for 'The Internship' Drops, Borrowing A Familiar Theme

The first poster for The Internship has dropped, making a not-so-discrete reference to one of the most pervasive and all-encompassing enterprises in the world: Google.

Courtesy of Collider, the poster features the now classic duo of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson standing alongside an enormous computer arrow atop a search engine. The Internship reads across the bottom in an all too familiar color scheme, one comprised of  an inoffensive yellow, blue, green and red.

This makes perfect sense considering the plot of The Internship. Wilson and Vaughn star as two out-of-work salesmen who decide to attempt to land an internship at a highly profitable internet company. The duo are subsequently forced to compete with much younger men and women who are also trying to land the much coveted internships, thus ensuing hilarity (in theory). That’s right folks, Google culture now has it’s own movie (because it decided it hadn’t claimed enough).

The Internship was helmed by Shawn Levy, who also directed Real Steel, the Night at the Museum series, Date Night and 2006’s remake of The Pink Panther. While he’s managed to claim such young talent as Teen Wolf‘s Dylan O’Brien and Don’t Trust the B‘s Eric Andre, the likes of Rose Byrne, Max Minghella, John Goodman, Josh Lad, BJ Novak, and Will Ferrell are all set to make appearances varying in length.

The Internship is set to hit theaters on June 7th. The premise definitely sounds both relevant and comedic, and we’re sure it’ll do just fine at box offices. But what do you think? Excited? Hate it? Same old same old? Let us know and enjoy the poster below.
