Some movies just have you at hello (and if they don’t, they probably won’t ever get you), and The Intern is one of those films. Warner Bros. has released a new set of images, and they actually clue you in to more detail than the trailer, but further marketing for this one is probably a lost cause. If Robert De Niro showing up to be Anne Hathaway‘s intern doesn’t suck you in, you’re immovable.
If the added information that this one is written and directed by Nancy Meyers still doesn’t do anything for you, I don’t think there’s the slightest hope of reaching you.
As I said, the images reveal a bit more of the story, especially in the sense of De Niro and Hathaway appearing with a cute kid, but I don’t think that’s going to be big reveal that suddenly changes anyone’s mind.
Check them out below, and get your tickets early for September 25th.
Academy Award winners Robert De Niro (“Raging Bull,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and Anne Hathaway (“Les Misérables,” “The Devil Wears Prada”) star together in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Intern.” Oscar-nominated and award-winning filmmaker Nancy Meyers (“It’s Complicated,” “Something’s Gotta Give,” “Private Benjamin”) is directing the comedy from her own screenplay.
In “The Intern,” De Niro stars as Ben Whittaker, a 70-year-old widower who has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Hathaway).
The film’s multi-generational cast also features Rene Russo (“Thor”), Anders Holm (“Workaholics”), Andrew Rannells (“Girls”), Adam Devine (“Pitch Perfect”), Celia Weston (“No Reservations”), Nat Wolff (“The Fault in Our Stars”), Linda Lavin (“Wanderlust”), Zack Pearlman (“The Inbetweeners”), newcomer Jason Orley, and Christina Scherer (“Living with Uncle Charlie”).
