Robert De Niro stars as Anne Hathaway’s intern in Nancy Meyers’ upcoming comedy, which premiered its official trailer this week.
The trailer opens with a job interview: ‘Where do you see yourself in ten years time?’ asks a youthful Nat Wolff to De Niro’s character Ben. ‘Ten years time?’ responds Ben, raising an eyebrow ‘When I’m eighty?’
The Intern looks set to be a fun, comic and heart-warming movie, due to be released in the UK on 2 October of this year.

Could love be used as a weapon? This is the question behind intriguing new spy thriller Captcha, starring former Doctor Who actor Arthur Darvill, alongside Amy Beth Hayes, Kayvan Novak, Nigel Lindsay and Zoe Wanamaker.
The atmospheric, intense trailer is notable for its cinematographically stunning graphics and moody music, expertly channelling the ‘film noir’ genre and promising a high-octane thriller with a moving love story at its centre.
Darvill is having a career high of late. Following successful turns on the London theatre scene in The Globe’s Doctor Faustus, musical Once and the National Theatre’s Treasure Island, the actor has been cast as DC Comics character Rip Hunter in upcoming US TV series Legends of Tomorrow, as a time-traveller who assembles a team of heroes and villains to defend time itself.
Set Fire to the Stars:
Another visually intriguing trailer comes in the form of the first official preview for Set Fire to the Stars, an upcoming movie which stars Elijah Wood as John Malcolm Brinnin, the New York academic who brought Dylan Thomas to America. The film’s co-writer, Celyn Jones, plays the famous Welsh poet.
‘How much trouble can one poet be?’ questions John, but soon he finds himself answering his own question, as Dylan Thomas scandalises 1950s America. John decides the only choice is to take Thomas to a private retreat and there the two have a life-changing experience.
Intriguingly shot in black-and-white and evoking the Manhattan literary world of the fifties, the film’s official synopsis describes the movie as ‘Part literary biopic and part love-letter to the American B-movies of the Forties and Fifties’. The movie was directed by Andy Goddard, in his directorial debut and will premiere in the US in June, following a UK premiere at last year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival.
