New, 21 comments

What happens when a television personality and his best friend are recruited to assassinate North Korea's corpulent leader? The official teaser trailer for action-comedy The Interview is riddled with cringe-inducing moments, inexplicable situations, and an undercurrent of platonic male love. James Franco and Seth Rogen star as Dave Skylark and Aaron Rapoport, a talk show host and a producer who find themselves en route to Pyongyang for an interview with the notorious Kim Jong-un. Plans change, however, when the CIA tasks them with the execution of the dictator. The Interview is slated to release sometime this fall.
