Finally, a Christmas film that isn’t a Christmas film! The Night Before stars Seth Rogen (The Interview), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) as Isaac, Chris, and Ethan, three long-long best friends celebrating what might be their last Christmas together. The shenanigans begin to unfold after Ethan gets the trio into a huge Christmas party and Isaac is given shrooms and coke as a present by his wife (Workaholics‘ Jillian Bell).
The trailer starts off on a high note as the trio play Kanye West’s “Runaway” on a large toy piano, reminiscent of Tom Hanks’s 1988 film Big, then runs through a litany of jokes, such as Ethan telling Isaac’s unborn child that Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to fuck with at a family dinner, Isaac tripping on the drugs in a limo and weirding out Chris, and a cameo by Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project) and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) praising Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball.”
The Night Before reunites the trio of Rogen, Gordon-Levitt, and writer/director Jonathan Levine, who all worked together in 2011’s 50/50. The film should also give fans a chance to Mackie’s comedic side following his more recent Marvel film appearances. The Night Before will be coming to theaters on November 25th.
