The film The Intern opens this weekend, and the dramedy marks the director Nancy Meyers’ first return to film since 2009. The movie stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, with Robert playing the intern, and Anne playing his boss.
Robert’s character ends up at the bottom of the corporate food chain after becoming a widower and reentering the work force post retirement. Looking for a way to make his life a little more interesting, he jumps on the opportunity to take the internship position at an online fashion site. The company is run by Anne’s character, who means business.
The film is suspected to pull in somewhere between $15 and 20 million this weekend, however the rest of the box office openers are skewed in the action in adventure genre so The Intern doesn’t have as much competition in its genre and is expected to do well with women. For that reason it might actually end up doing better than projected.
Some previews of the movie were shown on Thursday night, and Warner Bros has reported that the film pulled in $650,000 on those.
The Intern only has a 50 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, but it’s ranking third on fan anticipation on Fandango’s “fanticipation” meter.
The film is rated PG-13 and has a two-hour run time. It opened everywhere this Friday.
