Every Christmas offers a heartwarming, milk chocolate-coated tale to get us in the mood for the holiday cheer, and that’s what we look forward to. But here’s a warning for this year: things are really getting shaken up and might never be the same again, because Jonathan Levine‘s The Night Before is adding an unhealthy amount of debauchery to our lovely-jubbly Christmas.

This warped adventure stars a slew of our favorite funnymen — Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anthony Mackie — as lifelong pals trying to find the Holy Grail of Christmas festivities (all while wearing godawful Christmas sweaters). And now you can watch the first three minutes just to get an idea of the merry mayhem that awaits you.
