The Interview - Dave (James Franco) and Aaron (Seth Rogen) ©2013 CTMG

An action-comedy The Interview which follows celebrity tabloid star Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) in their plan to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

That’s right a really wacky plot that sounds like a follow up to Team America: World Police.
