Anne Hathaway is Robert De Niro's Boss in First 'The Intern' Trailer
"It's moments like this you know you need someone you can count on." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for The Intern, a comedy about a young CEO who takes on an old intern. Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro star, with Hathaway playing the CEO and De Niro playing the intern at her company. In addition: Adam DeVine, Rene Russo, Anders Holm and Andrew Rannells pop up here and there, too. As cheesy as this sounds, I actually think it looks pretty good, it's charming. It's not overly snarky about the "old dude doesn't get young modern world" stuff, and it has some sentimentality to it that seems to work well. I saw even more footage at CinemaCon, and I might say don't completely ignore this one. Give it a shot.
Here's the first official trailer for Nancy Meyers' The Intern, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube:
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, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam Devine, Celia Weston, Nat Wolff, Linda Lavin, Zack Pearlman, newcomer Jason Orley, and Christina Scherer. The Intern is both written and directed by Nancy Meyers, of the films It's Complicated, The Holiday, Something's Gotta Give, What Women Want and The Parent Trap previously.. Warner Bros will release the film in theaters September 25th later this fall.
