Featured Stories - on October 02, 2015 by BoxOffice Staff

Seth Rogen looks to rebound after The Interview fiasco last year with The Night Before, a raunchy new holiday flick. This week BoxOffice takes a closer look at the film's prospects. 

The Night Before
(Sony)

PROS:

- Reactions on Facebook and Twitter to the trailers are very encouraging. 
- The trio of Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie sounds like a winner to us.
- The holiday film genre is full of overly sappy entries. We think the notion of an R-rated raunch fest will appeal to people who still watch Christmas Vacation religiously. 

 

CONS:

- The amount of competition at this time of year won't be easy to overcome.
- Not counting The Interview, Rogen has had his share of misses.
