The trailer that North Korea doesn’t want you to see! Too hot for Kim Jong-UnTV! Decadent, western nonsense that paints our glorious leader in a bad light and doesn’t show off his magnificent vocal range as he sing Katy Perry songs in a manner that would make the songstress give up her career immediately! I promise I don’t have a North Korean AK-47 aimed at my head!
In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport 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 two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
What can I say? I’m a fan of any film that pairs Seth Rogen with James Franco and makes me bust a gut laughing at puerile humour. And has tanks. And Katy Perry music. Please don’t tell our glorious leader I said that. The Interview on December 25.
