Trailer: The Interview

It doesn’t look mind-blowingly funny, but I am weirdly intrigued by this trailer for The Interview.

Following last year’s surprisingly hilarious comedy, This is The End, writing and producing partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are back. The Interview follows Rogen and James Franco on a madcap quest to assassinate North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un. It certainly looks like it’ll feature that typical Franco/Rogen “best-stoner-buddies” silliness, but the actual subject matter for this movie seems pretty dark. I’m genuinely interested to see how this one plays out.

And hey, points for Rogen and Goldberg choosing a real dictator for the villain. We haven’t seen a ballsy cinematic move like  that since Team America: World Police.

The Interview will debut on October 10th.
