The trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview is pretty insane. In the film, a famous entertainment journalist and his producer get an exclusive interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Before heading to the interview, the U.S. government asks the guys to assassinate the dictator.
So why the heck would this journalist, out of everyone, get this exclusive interview? Your first clue was on MTV over the weekend as James Franco‘s character, Dave Skylark, hosted a Very Special VMA Special featuring interviews with musicians Iggy Azalea, Jason Derulo and Nicki Minaj. Seth Rogen’s producer character, Aaron, also plays a huge role in the special.
Watching this special, which runs 20 minutes long, you’re sure not only to laugh, but totally get why the North Korean dictator of the film – which opens December 25 – would agree to the Interview. Watch The Interview MTV Special below. Read More »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s already controversial film, The Interview, was recently pushed back a few months but we’ll get a nice tease this weekend. Tied into the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, stars of the film James Franco and Rogen will do a full 30 minute special, in character, interviewing popular musicians Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo.
In the film, Franco plays Dave Skylark, the host of a popular entertainment interview show run by producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen). They’re then granted an exclusive interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, and are asked to kill him. There will be no killing on the MTV special, which airs Sunday August 17 at 9 p.m., but you’ll get a sense of the film’s tone and humor.

When North Korea started to kick up a fuss about The Interview — the film in which Seth Rogen and James Franco play TV news guys who are recruited to assassinate Kim Jong Un during an interview opportunity — Sony seemed to shrug. But as the country remains furious about the comedy, calling its release essentially an act of “sponsoring terrorism,” it looks like Sony is having second thoughts. Some digital changes are being made to The Interview. One change is relatively small, but there’s also a report of one graphic scene, which could have been one of the film’s big attention-getting moments, being tossed entirely. (A spoiler warning might be in order for details of that scene.) Read More »
Briefly: The Interview, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s follow up to This is the End, just got bumped back a few months. Originally scheduled for release October 18, it’ll now open Christmas Day.
The film stars Rogen and James Franco as entertainment journalists who land an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and are asked by the U.S. Government to kill him. You can watch the trailer here and read more about the film soon.
North Korea is mad at Seth Rogen and James Franco. The country’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, has denounced their upcoming film, The Interview. Which makes sense, really, given that The Interview is about a would-be journalist (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who are given the chance to interview the dictator. But a clandestine organization sees an opportunity there, and recruits the pair to assassinate Kim instead. Pretty easy to understand, then, why the leader wouldn’t be all that into the film.
