THE NIGHT BEFORE (previously known as X-Mas) is an upcoming Christmas comedy film written and directed by Jonathan Levine, which reunites Levine with his 50/50 stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen, along with Anthony Mackie, as three childhood best friends. Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, Michael Shannon, and Mindy Kaling also star in the film.
Ethan (Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Rogen) and Chris (Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.
