"Sometimes the longshots pay off the biggest."
The 2005 comedy Wedding Crashers marked the first pairing of actors Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, which became a huge hit, earning $285 million in worldwide box office. Strangely, the two actors had yet to reunite until the upcoming The Internship, which posits the duo as as two unemployed 40-somethings that get internships at Google (which apparently did NOT fund the movie despite its presence in the poster, first image and, now, its first trailer).
Despite taking a break from appearing together, The Internship feels like familiar territory for Vaughn and Wilson, but that probably won't be a problem for their fans. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.13.13 by Ryan

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have a brand new boss and it's Rose Byrne.
Entertainment Weekly reports Byrne (Bridesmaids, X-Men: First Class) is in final negotiations to join the upcoming comedy The Internship, which will follow Vaughn and Wilson as two unemployed 40-somethings that decide to start their careers over by getting low-level positions at a Silicon Valley tech firm. Byrne will play a high-ranking executive who becomes Wilson's love interest. Joanna Garcia (Reba, Royal Pains) will play Vaughn's love interest, though whether it's another inter-office romance is unknown.
The Internship was written by Vaughn and will have Shawn Levy (Real Steel) in the director's chair when shooting begins on July 9th. The movie is the first reunion between Vaughn and Wilson since 2005's Wedding Crashers. Posted 06.30.12 by Ryan
This week has already brought a new international trailer for the upcoming comedy The Watch (formerly Neighborhood Watch), and now the first preview clip is also online via Yahoo!. The Watch follows four guys (Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, Vince Vaughn) who start a Neighborhood Watch group to help protect their suburban community and end up discovering an aline plot to take over the world.
In this first preview clip, the guys are on a nighttime stakeout in front of a CostCo and quickly learn that one of the biggest issues of a stakeout is having to use the bathroom. No surprise that it's Vaughn's character with the urge and, luckily, a soda can. watch the clip >> Posted 06.22.12 by Ryan
With each consecutive trailer, more is being revealed about what kind of movie the upcoming The Watch (formerly Neighborhood Watch) is hoping to be. The teaser trailer released in March seemed to set up a comedy about suburban dads playing tough in their Neighborhood watch group, while the subsequent red band and green band trailers revealed that the four guys (Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, Vince Vaughn) would also encounter a potential alien invasion.
The latest trailer is easily the funniest trailer yet, showing Evan (Stiller) bringing the group together. It also offers more looks at the other members of the group (surprise, Vaughn's character, Bob, is the obnoxiously enthusiastic one). Once the group runs over an alien with Stiller's minivan, the unlikely saviors of the planet have to find a way to stop the invasion. That's when the laughs really begin. watch the trailer and check out the new poster >> Posted 06.21.12 by Ryan
In March, the teaser trailer for the upcoming comedy The Watch (back when it was called Neighborhood Watch) was a simple affair, showing Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, and Vince Vaughn driving around their neighborhood in a minivan trying to look like badasses in their matching jackets. The teaser did little to promote the fact that the group would eventually stumble across a possible alien invasion, something that the work-unfriendly red band trailer released earlier this month addressed almost entirely.
Clearly, the alien subplot is a selling point of the movie. The latest, work-friendly trailer for The Watch further explores the alien invasion, even revealing what the aliens look like when Stiller, Hill, and Vaughn fight one in a CostCo and later take pictures with it. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.24.12 by Ryan
20th Century Fox dropped a new red-band trailer for the Ben Stiller comedy Neighborhood Watch but also announced it's renaming the movie to simply The Watch (the change is undoubtedly related to the controversial Trayvon Martin case).
Here's the official synopsis for The Watch:
Four everyday suburban guys come together to form a neighborhood watch group, but only as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood — and the world — from total extermination. watch the red-band trailer >> Posted 05.04.12 by Chris
Last year, Vince Vaughn had a dilemma: His buddy-comedy with Kevin James was one of his worst-reviewed in some time; in fact, The Dilemma just missed out on making back its $70 million budget.
In response, Vaughn seems to be making safer movie choices. First, he teamed with Jonah Hill and Ben Stiller for the upcoming comedy Neighborhood Watch. Then came the announcement he's re-teaming with his Wedding Crashers co-star Owen Wilson for the comedy The Internship (which starts shooting this summer).
Now comes news that Vaughn is looking to headline an adaptation of the TV series The Rockford Files, which originally ran from 1974-1980 on NBC and has remained in syndication ever since. Originally played by James Garner, the character of private investigator Jim Rockford seems like a great fit for Vaughn. A Korean War veteran (likely updated for the movie, if used at all), Rockford spent a few years in San Quentin for a falsely accused crime (but was later pardoned), and often used his charm to get himself out of trouble, though he wasn't opposed to the occasional fist fight and car chase. A movie would also open the door for a veteran actor to play Rockford's dad, Rocky — possibly Garner himself?
But there's no reason to get excited this soon, Vaughnnettes. Deadline reports that Universal has hired screenwriters David Levien and Brian Koppelman (Battleship, Ocean's Thirteen) to adapt the series into a movie after a couple attempts to reboot the TV series went bust. While a Rockford Files reboot has the potential to be a franchise for Vaughn, it'll be a while before Jim Rockford starts answering calls from his Malibu-based mobile home again.

20th Century Fox has released the teaser trailer for the upcoming comedy Neighborhood Watch, which stars Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, and Vince Vaughn as suburban dads who form a group to protect the neighborhood. While their intent is actually a thinly disguised excuse to hang out together, they inadvertently discover a plot to take over the world. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) wrote the script for the movie.
None of the alien conspiracy is in the teaser, however, which instead shows the three leads and Richard Ayoade rolling through the streets in their mini-van and matching jackets and tackling some of the pressing issues of suburban life. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.01.12 by Ryan
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are reuniting, but it's not for a Wedding Crashers sequel. According to Vulture, the pair will star together in the comedy Interns. Vaughn and Wilson will play two forty-something guys who are downsized and decide to take on a whole new career path. They wind up in internships at a large dot com where they are forced to compete against fresh-faced recent college grads in their efforts to climb a new corporate ladder. The script was written by Vaughn, who also wrote Couples Retreat, and will be directed by Shawn Levy.
The premise sounds like a mashup of a Friends rerun and an SNL skit about "the YouTube generation," but it also sounds pretty funny. Besides, any story on the big screen that's at least mostly original is a breath of fresh air with all of the remakes and sequels that have taken over the box office lately, and you can't beat the laughs that a Vaughn and Wilson comedy conjure.
