‘The Interview’ Video: James Franco is a Terrible Talk Show Host

19 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Writer/directing duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s The Interview – the pair’s upcoming sophomore directorial effort after their apocalypse/Hollywood satire This Is the End – is a comedy that stars James Franco as Dave Skylark, the star of a popular celebrity tabloid TV show called “Skylark Tonight”.

The latest piece of marketing for The Interview is the faux-mtv special titled “Dave Skylark’s Very Special MTV Special” (watch it above). It features “The Franco” in character as the eponymous host and Rogen as Skylark’s often-flustered producer, Aaron Rapoport, alongside other recognizable folk. (Jean-Ralphio! Also known as actor Ben Schwartz.) No doubt, this MTV video is even more loosely-structured and spur of the moment in its design than the actual movie it’s promoting.

Still, Rogen and Goldberg’s well-established improvisatory style - to mention nothing of the general irreverence of their films – is on display here, as »

Lol: ‘The Interview’ MTV Special With James Franco and Seth Rogen

19 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview is pretty insane. In the film, a famous entertainment journalist and his producer get an exclusive interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Before heading to the interview, the U.S. government asks the guys to assassinate the dictator. So why the heck would this journalist, […]

Now you can watch the full MTV special introducing us to Skylark and Rapoport as they conduct a "very special Vma special" speaking with Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo. Watch it below!

Watch a 20 Minute MTV Special for The Interview Introduce James Franco and Seth Rogen’s Characters

18 August 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Interview is one of my most anticipated movies of the year (though it did inch down half a notch on the list when they decided to censor it to appease a military dictator), and I can’t wait to see it at Christmas.  The release date delay was probably made after Sony and MTV had agreed to air this special (this is now a bit of a long lead for such specific awareness), but it’s here and it’s hilarious. The Dave Skylark Very Special Vma Special aired last night on MTV and very nicely introduces the newsman and producer characters James Franco and Seth Rogen play in the film (along with roasting celebrity guests Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea, and Jason Derulo).  It’s about 20 minutes long, so unfortunately it actually has commercial breaks, but you should give it a whirl regardless.  Hit the jump for The Interview character introduction. »

Sony altering The Interview to appease North Korea

13 August 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in June, Sony Pictures almost kicked off an international incident with the release of the first trailer for The Interview, the upcoming comedy from This Is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg which sees Rogen and James Franco’s TV journalists recruited by the CIA for an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un.

Unsurprisingly, North Korea wasn’t too impressed on a film poking fun at its illustrious leader and demonstrating “the desperation of the U.S. government and American society”, and now it seems that Sony is looking to try and calm the tension by digitally altering thousands of military decorations worn by characters in the film, as well as potentially cutting a scene where Kim Jong-un’s face “is melted off graphically in slow motion.”

The Interview is set for release on October 10th in the States and October 29th in the UK… assuming North Korea »

Sony making changes to The Interview, may avert war

13 August 2014 10:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

North Korea may yet call off war threats, as Sony makes lots of small amends to the upcoming comedy, The Interview...

The story so far. For their follow up to This Is The End, co-writers and directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been putting together The Interview. This is a comedy starring Rogen and James Franco, recently pushed back to December, that follows a fictional assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's life.

The North Korean authorities did not take this news very well, declaring it an "act of war". A complaint to the United Nations was lodged.

As it turns out, Sony is now making alterations to the movie, presumably in an attempt to avoid World War III breaking out. It also saves putting out a call to Matthew Broderick and his games of tic-tac-toe.

Push Start: Jeremy Snead talks Video Games: The Movie

13 August 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen sits down to talk with Jeremy Snead about Video Games: The Movie

Lo: Tell me about Video Games: The Movie

Js: It all goes back to… you know, you ask directors ‘why did you want to make that movie?’ and their answer is usually the same. And it was the same for me. It was a film I wanted to see, so that’s why I did it. The medium, the history, the culture, you know it really deserved a feature length documentary. I was also in a place in my career, you know and I have worked in the game industry – in case you didn’t know, we at Mediajuice cut together game trailers. So it all came from a combination of all of those things. It took around three years in total.

The movie was partly funded by Kickstarter, how to did that come about?

Yeah, »

Seth Rogen's 'The Interview' Digitally Altered to Appease North Korea

13 August 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One week removed from Sony Pictures pushing its controversial comedy The Interview from October 10 to December 25, the studio is making a few minor changes to the film, in hopes of easing tensions rising from North Korea.

Sony will digitally alter thousands of buttons worn by cast members, because they depict actual hardware worn by the North Korean army to honor their leader Kim Jong Un and his late father Kim Jong Il. Showing these military decorations would be considered "blasphemous" in North Korea, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The comedy follows a popular American talk-show host (James Franco) and his producer (Seth Rogen) who learn that Kim Jong Un (Randall Park) is a big fan of their show. They make plans to interview the dictator in North Korea, when the CIA tasks them with actually assassinating him.

Sources reveal the studio is also considering cutting a scene where the dictator's »

Sony to Digitally Alter The Interview to Remove Military Buttons; May also Cut Face-Melting Scene

13 August 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week, Sony moved Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's comedy The Interview from October 10th to December 25th.  It seemed like a savvy bit of counter-programming where the R-rated comedy, which is about a TV interviewer (James Franco) and his producer (Rogen) being tasked with assassinating Kim Jong Un, would play against family films and dramas.  However, it now looks like the delay is due to technical reasons.  According to THR, Sony "is digitally altering thousands of buttons worn by characters in the film because they depict the actual hardware worn by the North Korean military to honor the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, 31, and his late father, Kim Jong Il (showcasing military decorations would be considered blasphemous to the nuclear-armed nation)."  That's how crazy you can be when you have nukes: You can make people spend time and money in order to hide buttons. There's also concern over a face-melting scene, »

Sony Editing Seth Rogen's The Interview To Avoid Possible Political Conflicts

13 August 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It really feels like a hornet's nest is being kicked with the upcoming The Interview. The Christmas Day comedy has already sparked talk of being an "act of war" on the part of America against Korea, and now we're getting pretty nervous re-writes. It looks like directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's vision is not making it onto the screen intact. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Sony is considering several digital alterations to the material that will soften the blow. One is the alteration of various buttons worn by the North Korean characters in the film, which apparently are accurate representations of buttons worn by certain military officials in North Korea, a detail that the trade says would be "considered blasphemous to the nuclear-armed nation." But another planned change stems from the third act, which is why we'll be moving into spoiler territory here. Apparently, The Interview includes »

Sony is Digitally Altering Rogen and Franco's Kim Jong-un Assassination Comedy 'The Interview'

13 August 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Upon the release of the trailer for Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview, a film in which the duo play tabloid journalists who land an interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un only to have the CIA recruit them to assassinate him, North Korea's foreign ministry spokesperson responded brusquely: "The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership... is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable." At the time the trailer was released and that comment (and others) was made the film was set for an October 10 release. Now, it has moved to Christmas Day and new word from The Hollywood Reporter says Sony is digitally altering the film in a couple of key ways. First off, sources tell the trade the studio is digitally altering thousands of buttons worn by characters in »
