First Promo For The Night Before

Seth Rogen got into a spot of bother with North Korea over The Interview, so we can only imagine the possible consequences of vomiting in front of Jesus in the trailer for The Night Before.

Coming from the 50/50 team that also includes director Jonathan Levine and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the film adds Anthony Mackie for the story of three dudes who have a long-standing Christmas Eve tradition. The trio have headed out for the past 14 years on the night before Christmas for some drinking, dining and general debauchery.

But now they’re realising that things have changed – Mackie’s Chris has become famous and is recognised wherever they go, while Rogen’s Isaac is about to have a baby with wife Jillian Bell. So they decide to have one last night to remember, filled with drugs (supplied by Isaac’s other half) and access to New York’s hottest party. As you might expect, things go a little crazy…

Given how well 50/50 juggled its tone, we’re hoping for some real feeling behind the chaos from this one, which has a script by Levine, Ariel Shaffir, Kyle Hunter and Rogen’s writing/ producing partner Evan Goldberg. With Heléne Yorke, Lizzy Caplan and Aaron Hill in the cast, **The Night Before **hits US cinemas in November and is scheduled to arrive here on December 11.
