‘The Night Before’ Trailer: Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Christmas Debauchery Goes Green Band
In keeping with the Christmas-y theme of Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s rowdy comedy The Night Before, we now have a green band trailer to go along with that raunchy red band trailer from last month. It’s not as debauched as that first trailer, but The Night Before still looks like high-larious fun (sorry).
The new trailer plays very similarly to the first one, with just a little less drug-addled shenanigans and much less profanity, of course. But it’s still got that great little opening scene from the red band trailer, with Rogen, Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie playing Kanye West’s “Runaway” on FAO Schwarz’s famous giant keyboard. The Night Before was directed by Jonathan Levine, best known for 50/50 (also starring Gordon-Levitt) and Warm Bodies, and written by Levine with longtime Rogen collaborator Evan Goldberg, along with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shiffir.
Ethan (Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (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.
