Watch: Seth Rogen Ruins Christmas in ‘The Night Before’ Redband Trailer

Sony Pictures is celebrating Christmas in July, releasing a redband trailer for holiday comedy “The Night Before,” starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie.

The film, which opens Nov. 25, centers on three longtime friends deciding to party one last time on Christmas Eve to mark the conclusion of their 14-year-old holiday tradition — started due to the death of the mother of Gordon-Leveitt’s character — since Rogen’s character is about to become a father and Mackie’s pro-athlete character is too famous.

Comic chaos ensues when Rogen’s wife, played by Jillian Bell, decides to give her husband magic mushrooms and cocaine. That leads to him barfing in a church while wearing a Star of David sweater and then declaring to the congregation, “We did not kill Jesus!”

Later on at a party, Mindy Kaling praises Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” which provides the soundtrack for the trailer: “You can cry to it, you can run to it, you can party to it.”

The Night Before” was directed by Jonathan Levine from his own script.
