Following both Red Band and Green Band versions of the first trailer, The Interview, the second directorial feature from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, has just released its final trailer! Check it out in the player below.
Also written by Goldberg and Rogen, the action-comedy follows Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen), who run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean leader 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 most unlikely candidates, to ‘take out’ Kim Jong-un.
“We actually based it more on political thrillers,” Rogen told ComingSoon.net when we visited the Canadian set of The Interview late last year, “like Ridley Scott movies and Michael Mann movies. We tried to use a lot of long lenses and we probably played some of the scenes tighter than they generally would in these types of comedies. To us, the fact that it looks kind of serious and has this weight to it makes it funnier, because it really looks like we’re stuck in like a serious political thriller.”
Also starring Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park and Diana Bang, The Interview hits theaters on December 25. Click here to check out our full set visit report.
