Emma Roberts and Dave Franco Prank Journalists during ‘Nerve’ Press Junket

By Flora  /  21 Jul 2016 (Thursday)

In the upcoming thriller ‘Nerve’, it’s all about the (Truth or) ’Dare’ acts that one can accomplish in a limited amount of time. During the press junket, lead stars Emma Roberts and Dave Franco team up with YouTube prankster Casey Niestat to prank a pair of unsuspecting journalists.

With a tiny earbud in their ears, Casey and his team are in the room next to the stars where they will instruct the duo what to do… and things got pretty weird and funny! In a way, this prank is also a testament to the actors’ acting abilities for they totally nailed it with different scenarios and of course, holding back their laughter. 

From random ‘Meowing’ to beers and Emma planting a kiss on the two journalists, you’ve got to watch it. 

The journalists may not go back with much materials related to the movie, but with a viral video like this, it’s a thousand times better. 


Industrious high school senior, Vee Delmonico [Emma Roberts], has had it with living life on the sidelines. When pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee decides to sign up for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition partnered with a mysterious stranger [Dave Franco], the game begins to take a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading her into a high stakes finale that will determine her entire future.

Nerve opens InCinemas 11 August 2016!
