Seth Rogen and James Franco meet Kim Jong Un in updated trailer for The Interview
Seth Rogen and James Franco's upcoming comedy The Interview made headlines earlier this year when North Korea condemned the film, calling it an "act of war." After making some major edits to the movie, Sony has now released a new trailer that showcases a friendlier view of the central character, none other than North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
The Interview is about a television talk show host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen), who have an opportunity to interview Kim Jong Un, but the CIA asks them to assassinate him instead. After an uproar from North Korean representatives, Sony decided to make heavy cuts, including a scene where Kim Jong Un's face melts off in slow motion. The new trailer takes a more humorous and less critical approach to the North Korean leader, with Franco's character calling him "not a bad guy." Take a look:
