James Franco And Seth Rogen Do It The American Way In Nsfw Trailer For The Interview

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

We’re three months away from the release of the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy, The Interview, and the controversy surrounding its content continues to mount. Thankfully, it’s all in the name of jocularity. However, quite a lot of the humour is already lost on North Korea. Specifically, Kim Jong-Un, who is characterized in the movie and subjected to some horrific Indiana Jones-style face melting.

Directed by Rogen and his long-time collaborator Evan Goldberg, The Interview is what Rogen himself termed “3 Days Of The Condor with idiots in it.” Franco stars as a tabloid journalist for hit TV show Skylark Tonight, who is sent along with his producer, Rogen, to visit North Korea. Why? Because they discover that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un loves the show, and figure that landing an interview with such an infamous figure will add a touch of class to the show. The »

'The Interview' Red Band Trailer Proves Killing Kim Jong-un Is Filthy, Hilarious Work (Video)

18 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A new red band trailer for "The Interview," in which Seth Rogen and James Franco are recruited to assassinate Kim Jong-un, takes advantage of its opportunity to show off the flick's dirtiest, most vulgar jokes -- and makes the high-concept comedy appear even more appealing.

The clip is packed with filthy quips about a bald-headed Rob Lowe resembling a certain member of the male anatomy, and an extended scene in which Franco enjoys sniffing ... well, something we can't print here. But suffice it to say, it got our attention.

But "The Interview" is more than gross-out humor and sight gags -- though it does offer plenty of those -- thanks to its screwball plot to have Rogen and Franco take out the North Korean leader, by way of instruction from a CIA agent played by Lizzy Caplan. What begins with Rogen pleading with Franco to cover real news on their »

Red-Band Trailer for Franco and Rogen's The Interview

19 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got a funny red-band trailer for you to check out for James Franco and Seth Rogen's new action-comedy The Interview. This is the movie that could help start a war with North Korea. The studio tried altering certain aspects of the movie to prevent that from happening though.

In the film, the two actors run a popular tabloid TV show, and they score an interview with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park). In the process of planning everything, they find themselves being recruited by the CIA to assassinate him. The trailer is Nsfw as it contains some nudity and a lot of vulgar language. Here's the synopsis:

In 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, »

Red-band 'Interview' trailer promises North Korea trip, bald Rob Lowe

20 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The first trailer for James Franco and Seth Rogen’s The Interview set up the pair’s government-funded trip to North Korea to assassinate Kim Jong Un. But why were the two chosen for such a mission? The film’s first red-band trailer explains why, and the answer is expectedly absurd.

Franco plays tabloid TV show host Dave Skylark, of whom Kim is a fan in the film. Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen) are invited to interview Kim Jong Un in Korea, but their trip is co-opted and turned into an assassination mission by the United States government. »

People Are People: Genz’s English Debut a Satisfactory B-Grade Noir

Expectations may a bet set a bit too high for Danish filmmaker Henrik Ruben Genz’s descent into the English language with his adaptation of Markus Sakey’s novel, Good People. Considering that 2008’s Terribly Happy, the director’s last film to play stateside, drew comparisons to the Coen Bros. and David Lynch, this latest effort pales severely in comparison, resembling more of a kitchen sink noir drowning in its own sea of dirty dishwater. Bereft of any vicious underpinnings or subversive class commentaries that would have at least presented something to chew on, we’re treated to the kind of deceptive web that doesn’t seem altogether probable from all its various angles.

Tom and Anna Reed (James Franco, Kate Hudson) are struggling to make ends meet after migrating to London to claim a sizeable home they’ve inherited. »

‘The Interview’ Red Band Trailer: Rogen & Franco Serve Their Country

21 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The premise alone for the raunch-comedy The Interview was enough for North Korea to denounce the film, several months before its theatrical debut.

Of course, if the movie’s newly-released red band trailer is any indicator, then any sort of political aspirations that The Interview has are going to be a secondary concern (if even that) behind serving up R-Rated irreverent humor. According to the latest preview, that includes James Franco questioning Seth Rogen’s love for “brown sugar” and the latter sticking government equipment into his rectum, among other scenes that blend pop culture references with lewd gags.

Rogen, in addition to starring with Franco, co-directed The Interview along with his trusted collaborator Evan Goldberg (This Is the End), drawing from a script that the pair co-penned with former Daily Show executive producer and South Park writer, Dan Sterling. Beyond taking down the low-hanging fruit that ...

See Rob Lowe remove wig in trailer for Seth Rogen's The Interview

21 September 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Interview has been given a new Red Band trailer by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The upcoming comedy film sees a tabloid talkshow host (James Franco) travel to North Korea with his producer (Seth Rogen) to assassinate Kim Jong-un during an interview.

Warning: The video below contains adult language:

The Nsfw trailer begins with Rob Lowe sharing a troubling secret as he removes his wig and ends with Rogen hiding a weapon of "ass destruction".

There is also a tongue-in-cheek allegation involving Matthew McConaughey and his favourite farm animal.

Columbia Pictures recently confirmed that The Interview is being edited to remove certain scenes that could be viewed as offensive to North Koreans.

The country's government had previously promised "merciless" retaliation if the film is released.

Rogen and co-director Evan Goldberg will release The Interview on Christmas Day (December 25) in the Us and on February 6, 2015 in the UK.

'The Interview' red-band: F-bombs, Seth Rogen's butt and Rob Lowe's horrifying secret

21 September 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you're playing this on your computer at work, a word to the wise: put your damn earbuds in first. Seth Rogen and James Franco go on a mission to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in the new red-band trailer for "The Interview," which features more f-bombs, gratuitous doofus humor and bare-assed Seth Rogens than you can shake a stick at. Also: what is Rob Lowe's horrifying secret? Find out here. This looks about as ribald and loopy as Rogen and Evan Goldberg's fans have come to expect (screenwriter Dan Sterling wrote the script from a story concocted by the creative duo). So what do you think? After watching the trailer above, let us know in the comments. "The Interview" hits theaters on December 25. »

Watch: Red Band Trailer for James Franco, Seth Rogen’s ‘The Interview’

21 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony has released the official Red Band for the upcoming James Franco and Seth Rogen comedy “The Interview,” and it includes a lot more sex jokes (Matthew McConaughey and a goat?), nudity and Rob Lowe than the original cut released in June.

Rogen and Franco star as the producer and anchor for a celebrity tabloid TV show. Eager to cover more hard news, the duo scores an interview with Kim Jong-un, but the CIA requests that they assassinate the North Korean despot.

The raunchy trailer comes after Sony moved the movie from its Oct. 10, 2014, release date to Christmas Day 2014 last month. North Korea apparently didn’t find the film’s plot funny — an unofficial spokesman for the country said the movie “shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society.”

Rogen co-directed “The Interview” with Evan Goldberg from a script they wrote with David Sterling. Lizzy Caplan also stars in the comedy. »

Raunchier Trailer for James Franco and Seth Rogen’s The Interview Is Funnier Than the Kid-Friendly Version

20 September 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The dictator-poking movie The Interview starring James Franco and Seth Rogen has a longer, raunchier, "red band" trailer that is far superior to the kid-friendly version released back in June. It's worth watching because it is (a) much funnier than the other one, (b) better at giving a sense of plot, and (c) starts off with a delightful cameo of Rob Lowe revealing his "true" self. Franco and Rogen work at a TMZ-like organization before getting recruited by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jong-un. Sony delayed the release of the film to Christmas Day so they could work on an edit that didn't provoke as much ire from his supreme leader. Check it out below.  »

'The Interview' Red Band Trailer: Sex Jokes Galore in Seth Rogen-James Franco Comedy

Seth Rogen and James Franco have a very unusual conversation about Matthew McConaughey and a goat in the red band trailer for the controversial comedy The Interview. The latest trailer offers a new look at Rogen and Franco's characters' hijinks before they get sent to North Korea to assassinate Kim Jong Un. This apparently involves the repeated smelling of their fingers. Rob Lowe also shows up in a cameo, looking quite different than the way he typically does.  The film was co-directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, based on a script they wrote with David Sterling (Girls).
