Not going to lie, I’m giddy with excitement about Seth Rogen and James Franco’s new comedy, The Interview. For starters, how can you not love a movie not only exists to make us laugh, but also to troll North Korea’s fancy cheese-eating dictator, Kim Jong-un. Rogen and Franco’s comedy has been called an “act of war” by Jung-Un. In fact, it ticked him off so much that he fired short-range missiles after its first trailer dropped, which revealed a plot where two American TV stars go to North Korea to “take out” the dictator for the CIA.
The red-band trailer for the flick hit the web over the weekend, which means (A. we get our first look at the wonderful Lizzy Caplan as a CIA agent and (B. we get to laugh at James Franco and Seth Rogen being raunchy again. In my opinion, Neighbors was pretty “meh,” so my expectations are off-the-charts on this being the one Rogen comedy I’ll actually laugh at this year.
The Interview hits theaters on December 25.
