The Night Before Trailer

"Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the borough…" It's here! Sony has unwrapped the first official trailer for The Night Before, the hilarious new Christmas comedy from Jonathan Levine. The film is about three dudes, three bros, who get together on Christmas eve in New York City to throw the most epic Christmas party ever as friends. Seth Rogen stars with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie; plus appearances by Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, Kayne and others. This looks downright hilarious, I'm ready to laugh my ass off this holiday season with the wackest holiday comedy around. Rogen tweeted this out saying it "was made by Jews, is about Christmas, and opens on Thanksgiving." Sounds perfect. Have fun!

Here's the first red band trailer for Jonathan Levine's The Night Before, direct from Sony's YouTube:

The Night Before Poster

Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties. The Night Before, formerly titled just X-MAS, is directed by Jonathan Levine of The Wackness, 50/50 and Warm Bodies previously. The screenplay is by Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter, Jonathan Levine & Ariel Shaffir. Sony will release The Night Before in theaters starting November 25th, Thanksgiving week. Are you in?

Im sure it will have the same laughs his movies have.

Where's James Franco man!? I feel like this movie is missing some James Franco love. Like you can't make a Seth Rogen buddy comedy without James Franco that's insane.

Having my doubts but because nothing can beat this is the end! It is my favorite comedy besides spaceballs ever!

Rogen is going all in with this one. I am one of the few that doesn't care much for the Rogen/Franco show that usually occurs. Franco tends to phone it in and Rogen's performance always suffers for that.

Is the Nazi propaganda department still making movies? This is another film where fat ugly Jew Seth Rogen plays an explicitly Jewish character, while good-looking Jewish actors (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lizzy Caplan, this time) play non-Jews. As a matter of fact, despite being the son of two Jewish parents, Gordon-Levitt has never explicitly played his own ethnicity once in his entire 30 years of acting. Is there a problem, Joey? This is the same racist trick Rogen pulls every time. He always casts himself as an explicit Jewish character opposite non-Jewish characters played by good-looking Jews (Paul Rudd, James Franco, Dave Franco, Zac Efron, Halston Sage, etc.). And this new film is from the same studio, S.S.ony, that released last year’s Fury, about fighting Nazis during WWII. Fury starred no less than four Jews (Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs, and Shia LaBeouf), yet none of the characters were Jewish and Jews and the Holocaust were never mentioned. Gee, maybe they should have cast Seth Rogen as a “funny” Jewish soldier who died early on in the film. Actors of fully Jewish background: Logan Lerman, Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mila Kunis, Bar Refaeli, James Wolk, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Julian Morris, Adam Brody, Esti Ginzburg, Kat Dennings, Gabriel Macht, Erin Heatherton, Odeya Rush, Anton Yelchin, Paul Rudd, Scott Mechlowicz, Lisa Kudrow, Lizzy Caplan, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Gal Gadot, Debra Messing, Robert Kazinsky, Melanie Laurent, Shiri Appleby, Justin Bartha, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Margarita Levieva, Elizabeth Berkley, Halston Sage, Seth Gabel, Corey Stoll, Mia Kirshner, Alden Ehrenreich, Eric Balfour, Jason Isaacs, Jon Bernthal, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy. Andrew Garfield and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are Jewish, too (though I don’t know if both of their parents are). Actors with Jewish mothers and non-Jewish fathers: Jake Gyllenhaal, Dave Franco, James Franco, Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Radcliffe, Alison Brie, Eva Green, Joaquin Phoenix, River Phoenix, Emmy Rossum, Rashida Jones, Jennifer Connelly, Sofia Black D’Elia, Nora Arnezeder, Goldie Hawn, Ginnifer Goodwin, Amanda Peet, Eric Dane, Jeremy Jordan, Joel Kinnaman, Ben Barnes, Patricia Arquette, Kyra Sedgwick, Dave Annable, Ryan Potter. Actors with Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers, who themselves were either raised as Jews and/or identify as Jews: Ezra Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alexa Davalos, Nat Wolff, Nicola Peltz, James Maslow, Josh Bowman, Winona Ryder, Michael Douglas, Ben Foster, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nikki Reed, Zac Efron, Jonathan Keltz, Paul Newman. Oh, and Ansel Elgort’s father is Jewish, though I don’t know how Ansel was raised. Robert Downey, Jr. and Sean Penn were also born to Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers. Armie Hammer and Chris Pine are part Jewish. Actors with one Jewish-born parent and one parent who converted to Judaism: Dianna Agron, Sara Paxton (whose father converted, not her mother), Alicia Silverstone, Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

Yikes. Joseph Gordon Levitt has that look. The look of "what the fuck did I just sign to do?"

Cobra-la-la-la!!! I remember that face.

Not bad. These guys still have the ability to make great comedies. I like how they are not really going crazy either, a la early 2000s Will Ferrell. Mostly grounded.

Is someone going to tell Seth Rogan that he does not know how to make a stoner comedy? C'mon man. Back to the drawing board.

i don't get the point of this kind of stories. "we have to do the last party ever" to prove how much we actually value our lives. Sorry it doesn't work for me. Looks awful, all i get from the trailer was a big Red bull commercial.

Oh it's okay, i will not see it. As i say before: it doesn't work for me. Waste of money and time. You cannot asure me that my point of view will change after i see it so... better not take the risk.
