The Interview 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.

Sony Editing Seth Rogen's The Interview To Avoid Possible Political Conflicts Sony Editing Seth Rogen's The Interview To Avoid Possible Political Conflicts
One is the alteration of various buttons worn by the North Korean characters in the film, which apparently are accurate representation of what is worn by certain military officials in North Korea, a detail that seems unnecessarily blasphemous.

Seth Rogen's Bloody Hand Offers First Look At Action Comedy The Interview Seth Rogen's Bloody Hand Offers First Look At Action Comedy The Interview
Our first look at Seth Rogen’s next project has come via Rogen himself, and while one could feasibly assume he’s been crushing grapes to begin an excursion into wine bottling, it’s actually just fake blood on his hand. For The Interview, the second feature from This is the End’s Rogen and his creative partner Evan Goldberg, we're apparently we’re going to see the actor use his fists as well as his throaty voice in order to take the bad guys down.
