Update: Trailer and poster for The Interview with Seth Rogen & James Franco

1 year agoby:

Update: The first trailer has landed for THE INTERVIEW and it's pretty damn funny. It's great to see Franco and Rogen together again; it's always a guaranteed laugh. The first trailer does a great job at setting up the story and surprisingly shows off a lot of anticipated action. The boys are attempting to assassinate Kim Jong-un, I say bring it on!

The first poster for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s new film THE INTERVIEW has been released. There is anticipation of a trailer this week so keep it here to check that out as well. THE INTERVIEW is an action-comedy starring James Franco and Rogen; the pair is delightfully at attention in the poster below along with a great credit line at the top.

Here’s the official synopsis for THE INTERVIEW:

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, 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.

They nailed the North Korea setting here and something already tells me this movie might stir up some controversy for the players involved before it's even released. I don’t think they appreciate satire and irony in East Asia as much as we do, but I could be totally wrong. As far as dictatorial propaganda posters go though, this one is great!

THE INTERVIEW opens October 10th 2014.

Yes! This looks as great as I was hoping when they first announced it. I have a feeling that the Kim Jong-un character is going to have some hilarious scenes.

controversy

knowing the N. Korea supreme leaders and their fascination with Western culture, the main controversy will be that Kim Jong Un will have wanted to play himself.

This looks pretty funny. I hope it does cause some controversy. It's always great to see Lizzy Caplan in a big movie.

This movie is probably going to cause some controversy when it releases but the premise sounds very original. Sounds like Frost/Nixon meets Team America: World Police.

I really like the premise for this, gotta say it's pretty original. The trailer was excellent, great editing and some unexpectedly beautiful camerawork. Getting a bit of a The Dictator vibe and I did enjoy that film.

If Kim Jong-Un puts a price on their heads it will be great free promotion for the movie.

These two being in any film/show together is a good thing. Pineapple Express, This is the End, and Freaks and Geeks being prime examples.

I do hope we get a sequel to Pineapple Express though. Would be kind of funny since they brought to the idea in This is the End.

Fucking stupid.

This does absolutely nothing for me. I guess I'm not the target audience.
