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 looks like it lands right down the middle of the plate of Franco/Rogen fare. If you’ve enjoyed their stuff in the past, it seems like “The Interview” will deliver what you’re looking for. Watch the trailer (featuring Talking Heads‘ “Burning Down The House”) and a new featurette below. “The Interview” opens on Christmas day. Update 11/25: New UK trailer with even more footage below too.
