Seth Rogen and James Franco’s ‘The Interview’ Moves to Christmas Day

By August 7, 2014

We were hoping to see Seth Rogen and James Franco’s ridiculous comedy The Interview – in which the guys play reporters hired to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un – in just a couple of months, as it was initially set for an October 10th release. But ComingSoon reports that Sony Pictures has just bumped it back to a December 25th release, so seeing the film will now be a nice Christmas present for fans of the two comedians.

Here’s the most recent trailer for the film:

And here’s the official synopsis:

In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator 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.
