Watch new UK trailer for The Interview

THE-INTERVIEW

Seth Rogen and James Franco meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the new trailer for The Interview.  Following a short featurette that was released a few days ago, Sony have released a full trailer for the film, that is co-directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

The Interview tells the story of late-night TV reporter Dave Skylark (Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapport (Rogen).  They discover that Kim Jong-un is a big fan of their show, and wishes to have an interview with them in North Korea.  Wanting to establish themselves as serious journalists the two eagerly get set to travel to North Korea,  until the CIA get wind of the trip, and assign them an important mission: assassinate Kim Jong-un.

The trailer shows Kim Jong-un to actually be a pretty cool guy; gifting an adorable puppy to the visiting Skylark, and partying with underwear-clad women.  Despite this, the North Korean government have taken offence at the premise of the film, stating that it shows the desperation of the US government and American society”.

Also starring Lizzy Kaplan, Randall Park, Timothy Simons and Diana Bang, The Interview reaches UK cinemas on February 6th 2015.
