Why You Should Go See Seth Rogen's "The Interview" On December 25th

A Seth Rogen movie about a Kim Jong-un assassination attempt?!

Posted on

Coming December 25th

Originally set to be released in the fall of 2014, due to negative feedback from none other than North Korea, the movie was pushed back until Christmas. Seth Rogen has been hosting surprise screenings in LA, New York and Washington DC and luckily I was able to attend the New York screening. Below I've listed some of the many things you have to look forward to if you decide to go check out the film.

The opening scene of "The Interview" includes a young North Korean girl singing nothing but insults to America in an angelic tone

That's right! If there wasn't sub titles provided and you didn't know the language you would think this little girl was singing nothing but sweet songs of candy and all that is good in the world. The sarcastic opening scene completely sets the tone for the movie.

President Kim is played by actor Randall Park

It turns out that the President of North Korea is a HUGE fan of Dave Skylark and his show Skylark Tonight! Who would've guessed?

James Franco plays Dave Skylark, the attractive tabloid news TV show host who desperately wants to be taken seriously

We get to see James Franco play the successful, yet air headed TV host and watch him score the ultimate live interview with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.

MTV aired "Dave Skylark's Very Special VMA Special" where Dave interviews Jason Derulo, Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj, you can watch it here.

Seth Rogen plays Aaron Rapaport, the producer for Skylark Tonight

You'll see plenty of familiar faces in this movie, one being Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe had a confession to make on Skylark Tonight...and it wasn't easy on the eyes.

You'll also get to see Anders Holm as Jake (A TV producer just like Aaron)

As described below, Anders Holm's character Jake is a bit of an asshole in "The Interview"

You'll also see the familiar face of Timothy Simons, best known from HBO's Veep

You can look forward to seeing Dave Skylark's love of fashion ruin their assassination plan

Dave is supposed to bring a bag with him to North Korea, given to him by the CIA, that includes what the guys need to carry out the assassination on Kim-Jong un. Unfortunately Dave insists on bringing his Gucci bag with him instead of the one the CIA gave him, causing a bit of a hiccup in their plan.

(Ironically James Franco *in real life* was signed in 2008 to be the face of Gucci's colognes)

Katy Perry's "Firework" is incorporated into the storyline

Lizzy Caplan plays CIA Agent Lacey

You'll get to see Agent Lacey ask Aaron & Dave to "take out" President Kim

There's plenty of action

Shutdown secret tunnels are used for escape plans!

You can see what happens when Dave realizes he's been betrayed by President Kim

Sadly, Dave Skylark was far too trusting of President Kim and realized the wool was being pulled over his eyes.

Aaron and Dave get to use high tech CIA gadgets!
