Chances are, if you’re in the target audience for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview, you’re not the type to be easily offended by a bit of nudity and some salty language. Still, maybe you prefer to keep things tamer while you’re at the office. Or maybe you just want to save the wildest jokes for the movie itself. So Sony has released a new The Interview green band trailer, which manages to be pretty funny even without the NSFW stuff. Watch it after the jump.
Rogen and James Franco star as longtime friends who work together on a popular celebrity tabloid TV show. When they discover that leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) is one of their fans, they plan a trip to North Korea for an exclusive interview.
Before they get there, though, the CIA (represented here by Lizzy Caplan) asks the boys to do the United States a solid and assassinate the dictator — despite the fact that these two bumbling fools really have no business trying to pull off such a sensitive mission.
Sony revealed the less revealing The Interview green band trailer on YouTube.
Goldberg and Rogen previously directed This Is the End, which managed to set itself apart from other R-rated movies by being a whole lot weirder than most of them. The apocalyptic comedy just kept going bigger and stranger, all the way up through that jaw-dropping finale. The Interview looks a bit more toned down in comparison, but hopefully Rogen and Goldberg haven’t lost their taste for insanity.
The Interview opens December 25.

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.
