Watch James Franco in Malick-esque ‘The Color of Time’ trailer

8 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

James Franco stars as Pulitzer Prize winning poet C.K. Williams in The Color of Time. The film centers on the struggles of the real-life writer, from childhood throughout his career. The film has eleven credited directors, so the film could be a beautiful experiment or a wonderful mess. There is also a very Terrance Malick-esque quality to the trailer, which should be interesting to see how that style carries over into the full, given that no one can do Malick besides Malick (and even then it’s a little iffy sometimes). The Color of Time also stars Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Henry Hopper, and the always-fantastic Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead fame.

North Korea Blasts James Franco and Seth Rogen ... Again

18 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

North Korean government-controlled website Uriminzokkiri released a statement on Friday condemning The Interview, ahead of next month's opening of the film by James Franco and Seth Rogen. A statement, published under a pen name, denounces the film that depicts a farcical mission to assassinate Kim Jong Un, as an "evil act of provocation" that deserves "stern punishment."

Get High With Seth Rogen And Watch The Interview

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This might be one of the most bizarre article headlines ever, but one that’s totally true to who Seth Rogen is as a person.

The star of the upcoming action comedy, The Interview, is taking advantage of Colorado being the first state to legalize recreational marijuana by inviting fans to a special screening of the movie where he and the audience will get baked before the proceedings. While I personally don’t use drugs in any capacity, this sounds like a pretty crazy experience and one that I’d love to be a fly on the wall for.

Not too many celebrities would even admit to their liberal usage of marijuana, so the fact that Seth Rogen is going this far to embrace it speaks volumes of just how honest and down to earth he must be in real life. It’s also a really cool promotional stunt for the film, »

27 November 2014 7:46 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Franco and Zachary Quinto have filmed a threesome scene for their forthcoming film Michael.

The scene also features former Desperate Housewives star Charlie Carver, according to E! News.

Franco and Quinto play lovers in director Justin Kelly's debut feature.

The film is based on the true story of gay activist Michael Glatze (Franco), who renounced his sexuality after a health scare.

He leaves San Francisco and builds himself a new life as a pastor.

Emma Roberts and Chris Zylka will also feature in the movie.

Franco recently took on a series of bizarre activities after fielding requests from members of the public.

Seth Rogen and Franco's The Interview recently released its final trailer. Watch the promo below: »

Seth Rogen to Get Stoned with Colorado Audience Before Screening

26 November 2014 2:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seth Rogen is taking his stoner persona to an even higher level next month for a Colorado screening of his new movie, “The Interview.”

The actor, currently promoting the Sony film on the West Coast, apparently tweeted that he would “get baked” with the entire audience in Denver, Co. before watching the action-comedy together.

We are going to do a screening of #TheInterviewMovie in Colorado where I get baked with everyone first, and we can smoke weed in the theater

Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) November 26, 2014

Hey Denver! Wanna get baked with Me and then watch my new movie The Interview?! You can on Dec. 8th! Email RSVPTheInterviewDenver@gmail.com

Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) November 26, 2014

Colorado, of course, recently legalized marijuana but the state doesn’t allow recreational use of the drug in public places so, if true, the theater would likely have to be private and 21 and over.

Final trailer for The Interview

26 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a lot of promotional material for The Interview these past few weeks, and now we have what is being described as the “final” trailer for the upcoming comedy, which sees James Franco and Seth Rogen recruited by the CIA for an assassination attempt on North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Check it out below…

n the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

Also featuring in the cast of The Interview are Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex »

New UK Trailer For The Interview

25 November 2014 8:38 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It may not have the Red Band madness of the previous promo, but this new UK trailer for The Interview, starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, does at least feature a puppy and Rogen being menaced by a tiger. So, there’s that. Franco is Dave Skylark, the none-too-bright but very popular host of celebrity tabloid TV show Skylark Tonight. When he and producer/best pal Aaron Rapoport learn that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a huge fan of their work, they manage to land an interview with the tyrant, seeing it as their chance to establish themselves as legitimate journalists.But with their travel to Pyongyang booked, the CIA decides that Dave and Aaron are the best shot they have at assassinating Kim, and set about finding a way for the two least qualified men imaginable to off a world leader. Naturally, things do not go quite to plan. »

Franco & Rogen meet Kim Jong-Un in latest trailer for The Interview

25 November 2014 8:22 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Real life pals James Franco and Seth Rogen have navigated the halls of high school in “Freaks and Geeks,” thwarted drug dealers in Pineapple Express, and saw the end of the world in This Is the End.  Now, they face their greatest challenge to-date: they must assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in The Interview.

Franco stars as dim-witted pop culture tabloid TV show host David Skylark whose number one fan just happens to be Kim Jong-Un.  When the CIA gets wind that the dictator has granted Skylark an interview on his home soil, Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport (Rogen) are tapped with the unimaginable- they must “take out” the dictator.

The comedy, which hits theatres on Christmas Day, paints the 31-year-old Jong-Un as a Katy Perry-loving dictator.  And he’s none too happy about it in real life, threatening “merciless retaliation” against the U.S. calling the film an “act of war. »

Final Trailer for The Interview - “Meet Kim Jong-Un”

25 November 2014 7:25 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The final trailer has been released for the James Franco and Seth Rogen Kim Jong-Un assassination comedy, The Interview. The trailer is called “Meet Kim Jong-Un,” and it’s loaded with hilarious new footage from the movie. In an interview with Commingsoon.net, Rogen talked about their plan for shooting the film and what they were tying to accomplish.

“We actually based it more on political thrillers like Ridley Scott movies and Michael Mann movies. We tried to use a lot of long lenses and we probably played some of the scenes tighter than they generally would in these types of comedies. To us, the fact that it looks kind of serious and has this weight to it makes it funnier, because it really looks like we’re stuck in like a serious political thriller.”

You can tell from the trailers that they had a ton of fun making this flick. »

James Franco And Seth Rogen Bond With Kim Jong-Un In The Interview’s Raucous Final Trailer

25 November 2014 5:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Imagine you’re tasked with killing North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un by the CIA, only to fly to the rogue nation and discover that the Dear Leader is a friendly, Katy Perry-loving guy with a softness for adorable puppies. Who could kill a dude like that? Such is the improbable dilemma faced by James Franco’s airhead talk show host and his only slightly more level-headed producer (Seth Rogen) in The Interview.

Of course, all the mayhem is underscored by the same raunchy humor that has marked Franco and Rogen’s previous big-screen misadventures (including Pineapple Express and This is the End). The final trailer for The Interview, which you can check out above, looks to be a seriously funny treat for moviegoers this holiday season (and certainly a solid alternative to the glut of Oscar contenders arriving around the same time).

'The Interview' Trailer: James Franco and Seth Rogen Invade North Korea

25 November 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Seth Rogen and James Franco seem to have a pact to make ridiculous, yet funny, movies together. The "Pineapple Express" stars are reuniting in the Rogen-directed "The Interview," which might have the most ludicrous premise yet.

As a new trailer reveals, Franco is a talk show host, and Rogen is his producer. They land an interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, but their big moment becomes much more complicated when the CIA recruits them to take out Kim during the interview.

Yes, it's totally wacko, but in the hands of this duo, "The Interview" would be some hilarious fun. The movie opens in theaters December 25.
