New UK Trailer For The Interview

14 hours ago | 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

14 hours ago | 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”

15 hours ago | 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. »

Meet Kim Jong-un in the Final Trailer for The Interview

15 hours ago | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

This supposedly final trailer for the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy The Interview is all about Kim Jong-un and a few things that might be considered spoilers (you’ve been warned, no really, you have). Kim Jong-un takes center stage in this new trailer and unfortunately they also spoil a new angle we didn’t know […]

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

17 hours ago | 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).

Seth Rogen and James Franco are recruited in the final Interview trailer

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview has released its final trailer.

Rogen reunited with his This Is the End partner Evan Goldberg to write and direct the comedy.

The Interview centres around television host Dave Skylark (Franco) and his producer (Rogen), who are invited for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

They are enlisted by the CIA to assassinate the dictator, but upon their arrival find that it is not as easy a task as they thought.

Franco and Rogen famously launched their careers together in the Judd Apatow-produced television series Freaks and Geeks, and later reunited in Pineapple Express.

Randall Park, Lizzy Caplan and Diana Bang also feature in the movie.

The Interview will open on December 25 in the Us and February 6 in the UK. »

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

21 hours ago | 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.

Sony Pictures has released the final trailer for Evan Goldberg's upcoming action comedy The Interview, and it contains a bunch of new footage featuring Randall Park's Kim Jong-un, who apparently really likes Katy Perry. The North Korean leader and James Franco's tabloid TV show host David Skylark bond over their love for the pop star in the trailer, and there's also a pretty funny joke about Miley Cyrus.

Best of Late Night TV: Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow's 'Celebrity Curse Off,' Tim Allen's Turkey Scooter Race (Video)

23 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jennifer Aniston was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night to promote the new "Horrible Bosses" movie, but she also took some time for a "Friends" reunion with Lisa Kudrow via the foul-mouthed game, "Celebrity Curse Off." Lisa's face is great when she's cursing. So much intensity! It's kind of sweet that they both get upset about the b-word, considering what they're Ok with saying.

In her sit-down interview, Jen - who looked amazing - talked about the press tour for "Horrible Bosses 2," which sounds fun but also pretty tiring. She's afraid of flying, so she hasn't been to a lot of beautiful places in the world because she's too scared to fly. »

New trailer for The Interview: Seth Rogen may be in trouble

24 November 2014 10:29 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Seth Rogen and James Franco star in The Interview. That's the film that North Korean complained to the Un about. Here's the new trailer.

We don't get the film until early next year in the UK, but come this Christmas, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's second film as directors, The Interview, will be out in Us cinemas. This is the film, as you may well recall, that's potentially going to start the end of the world as we know it.

It's a comedy about a television tabloid news reporter, played by James Franco, and his producer, played by Seth Rogen. And the pair just happen to land an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. An interview that the CIA learns about, and gives the pair the mission of, well, 'removing' the North Korean leader from power.

Since unpleasantness was threatened by the North Korean authorities - specifically including »

Watch: James Franco And Seth Rogen Are Burning Down The House In Final Trailer For 'The Interview'

24 November 2014 5:48 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Seth Rogen and James Franco have been on the run from drug dealers in "Pineapple Express," were the freaks in "Freaks & Geeks," faced the end of the world together in "This Is The End," and now, they're gonna kill someone. The pair have got "The Interview" arriving in just a few weeks, and the final trailer for the comedy is here. The premise is quite simple: Franco plays a dimwitted talk show host named Dave Skylark, with Rogen as his producer, and together they've managed to score an exclusive interview with North Korea's Kim Jong-Un. There's only one problem though: they've been asked to assassinate him on behalf of the CIA, with Lizzy Caplan as their liaison. The other problem? Kim Jong-Un seems like a nice guy, gives Skylark a puppy, loves to party, and he even likes Katy Perry. How could you kill a guy like that? Basically, this »
