I’m a big fan of both Seth Rogen and James Franco. I’ll rarely pass on anything they do. Rogen and Goldberg’s directorial debut, This Is The End was a big success, and I’d imagine The Interview will be too. What I find intriguing about the film is how realistic and serious the subject matter is (the film isn’t going to be serious as it’s a comedy, but the subject matter is no joke in real life). Seth Rogen even tweeted upon the release of the trailer, “I am incredibly proud and a little bit frightened to present the first teaser for our next movie.”
Here’s why (the plot of the film):
From IMDB: Talk-show host Dave Skylark and his producer, Aaron Rapoport, score an interview with Kim Jong-Un, dictator of North Korea. But when the CIA asks them to kill Kim,they become the least qualified men to ever assassinate.
I’m sure there’s going to be tons of jokes about people who already hate the United States. It will be very interesting to see how the world reacts to a film like this.
Seth Rogen and James Franco have amazing chemistry with each other and that’s what makes the two so enjoyable to watch. From the short trailer, it looks like a mixture of Pineapple Express and This Is The End, and that can only lead to a good time.
