Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn debut ‘The Internship’ official trailer (Video)

We previously told you about an upcoming movie called “The Internship” starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, where the two compete for an internship at Google. The two stars sat with Conan O’Brien on Wednesday in a live hangout to promote the film and début the official trailer. As you can see from the full-length trailer above, it appears the majority of the movie will take place at Google’s campus. The Internship hits theatres on June 7.

Google-related ‘The Internship’ movie now calling for extras in San Francisco area

We first reported in July about an upcoming movie called “The Internship,” starring Hollywood actors Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two 40-something Google interns attempting to find success.

BetaBeat (via AllThingsD) noted today that the film posted casting calls recently for extras and a stand-in for Wilson. According to Casting Networks, the stand-in gig calls for a 25- to 45-year-old Wilson look-a-like in the San Francisco area, and whoever lands the gig, whether SAG or non-union, will get $160.

OnLocationVacation further reported that the flick is filming at Stanford University today, while the final weeks of shooting wrap up in San Francisco.

According to IMDb, as seen in the image atop, Vaughn wrote the movie’s screenplay. Director Shawn Levy is also signed-on, while Vaughn, Wilson, and Rose Byrne take up the top three roles. Oh, and 21 Laps Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, and Wild West Picture Show Productions are just a few of the production houses on board.

“The Internship” is currently slated for a June 2013 premiere.

An interesting post appeared on Reddit today about an upcoming movie on two 40-something interns trying to become successful at an Internet company, but, more intriguingly, the film’s plot supposedly has Google ties.

The Reddit poster claimed his college transformed into a “Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson movie called ‘The Internship’ where they play Google interns.” A quick glimpse at the comments revealed the picture is shooting at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Ga.

According to the college’s website, set preparations for the movie will begin this week, “with production scheduled to wrap up on Aug. 24.” Adam Carlson of Creative Loafing, an Atlanta-based entertainment blog, reported earlier this month that he also spotted the film crew in town with Google:

  • As it turns out, I showed up as the crew was beginning prep on an outdoor sequence across the street from the Studios, which would include both a fire hydrant specially painted red and a Google bus.
  • The scenes indoors probably had a Google connection, too, […] a Coke machine had been installed on a top floor with a Google banner across it, covering the logo.
  • Maybe Owen and Vince — who play out-of-work salesmen reinventing themselves with a tech firm internship — were meant to be at Google? No one would confirm, but the very humid, very Atlanta weather didn’t feel much like California.
