Seth Rogen and James Franco attempt to kill Kim Jong-un in ‘The Interview’ – watch

First trailer for new comedy film revealed

Seth Rogen and James Franco star in the first trailer for their new movie, The Interview. See below to watch now.

The film sees Rogen and Franco play a television host named Dave Skylark (Franco) and his producer (Rogen), best friends who are enlisted by the CIA to travel to North Korea and assassinate Kim Jong-un.

The Interview is written and produced by Seth Rogen and his comedy partner Evan Goldberg. Most recently the pair have enjoyed success with the Zac Efron starring Bad Neighbours and zombie apocalypse comedy, This Is The End, which also starred Franco.

Rogen and Franco previously did their own version of Kanye West’s ‘Bound 2’ video, with their own take titled ‘Bound 3’ which featured Rogen topless on a motorbike while Franco mouthed along to West’s rap. Kim Kardashian said later that Kanye “loved” the spoof.

The Interview also stars Randall Park (Veep) as Kim Jong-un and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex, Mean Girls). The film opens in the UK on October 29.
