By now you've likely heard of a forthcoming movie, The Internship, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson that sees Google at it's core. The trailer for the flick, set for release this summer, has debuted, and looks to be a hilarious take on life on the Mountain View complex. 

Vaughn and Wilson play 2 out of work salesmen who apply for internships at Google. It may be a comedy, but The Internship actually had many scenes shot on the actual Google campus, with full support from the company. 

Speaking to UK newspaper, The Sun, director Shawn Levy says that capturing the culture of working at Mountain View was very important, and that Google has been most co-operative:

It's been a really interesting partnership in my production and Google where... it's not like I have to do everything they want in the script, it's very much still a comedy and a narrative, but trying to get the culture of Google right has been a big part of the work we have done.

We've a little while to wait until release, set for June in the US, but for now enjoy the trailer as we all continue to wonder what working at Google is really like.

Huge chunk of this movie was shot here in Atlanta on Georgia Tech campus. They turned the new undergraduate studies building to a Google building, brought Google bikes, etc.

Me? Well, while everyone was trying to get a picture of the movie actors, I was trying to get pictures of the Google couches, umbrellas, screens, bikes...

I have several pictures of the Google stuff around campus, but no actors sadly. Anywhere in this preview that you see Google, like Google on the side of the big glass wall, all the interns on the big wooden "stairs", and the rubiks cube scene were all shot here at Georgia Tech campus.

ehhhhhh....not sure. Looks like all the other Vauhgn/Wilson buddy movies. Old guys not getting tech.

Unfortunately I have to agree :( those were my first thoughts as I watched the trailer; it's no different than what we have seen from them over and over again. However, being a Google fan and a comedy fan, I will most likely see this movie anyway.

A friend of mine used to work at Google as a temp and she never wanted to leave the company. She told me about all of the perks that they get while they are at the job. A dream job for just about anyone it sounds like.

Well.. for some people who like all sorts of comedy.. this will still be a hit...For those who are expecting so much.. like how we savor on The Social Network.. then this is a massive flop...

They have their first pictures here... http://mhgr.us/61.... I love the idea that Vince Vaughn even is curious about the Google workplace
