New Trailer For The Intern

The idea of older people going back to work – some by necessity, others to combat boredom in retirement – has become a big trend, and it’s something that writer/director Nancy Meyers is capitalizing on for The Intern, which just put out its full trailer.

Robert De Niro stars in this one as Ben Whittaker, a 70-year-old, retired widower whose life after work and wife is stifling. Nothing seems to fill the void in his days, so Ben, who was somewhat of a business whizz, decides to re-enter the job market as an intern. Which is where Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway) comes in. She’s busy running her own company, which has soared from its small beginnings just a year or two ago into a beast of a fashion site that employs more than 200 people.

And while Ben might seem out of place in the trendy office full of younglings, he quickly forms a friendly bond with Jules, as she navigates the various peaks and valleys of her own career. It all comes across as good natured, and while we doubt there will be much of a surprise in terms of plot, the banter and chemistry between De Niro and his younger co-stars is undeniable.

With Rene Russo, Andrew Rannells, Adam DeVine, Nat Wolff, Anders Holm and Reid Scott also clocking in, The Intern will be out on October 2.
