Seth Rogen stars, along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie, in The Night Before, a raunchy holiday comedy from Columbia Pictures, Good Universe and Point Grey Pictures, in theaters November 25th.

The guys play childhood buds whose annual Christmas Eve debauchery fest is coming to an end. The reason being a nasty little thing called adulthood.

To honor their longtime tradition, they decide to go out in typical embarrassing style.

The Night Before was written by Joseph Levine (who also directed), Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffier and Evan Goldberg (who also produced the movie with Seth Rogen. The two are creative partners).

Jillian Bell plays Seth Rogen’s wife, who facilitates the boys’ fun by supplying the controlled substances for the boys last wild night.

Lizzy Caplan, Mindy Kaling and Miley Cyrus feature in the large ladies’ cast.

Kanye West appears as himself in The Night Before.

Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon Levitt last worked together in the film 50/50.

The film was originally slated for release for the fall of 2014 but was pushed back almost a year.

The Night Before was filmed on location in New York City in August of last year. Imagine the heat strain and skin rashes from the tacky holiday sweaters in the “dog days of summer.”

Just saying…

Seth Rogen is currently reprising his role in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, which is due out in May, 2016.
