The Interview

After extensively covered controversy and removal from major theater chains, Sony Pictures still released The Interview in theaters on Christmas Day, but only in over 300 independent theaters across the country. But the movie also got a boost from being made available on VOD outlets like YouTube, Xbox, Google Play and a site called Kernel that Sony used to make the movie available online. Since the release, Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg have been mostly quiet, with the exception of general hype and excitement, but a 23-minute interview with VICE from before the Los Angeles premiere of the film (which went off without a hitch) is now online featuring the filmmaking duo and co-star James Franco. Watch!

Here's an interview with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg & James Franco from VICE:

Here's the list of theaters you can catch The Interview at right now, right here. Go see it!

The Interview is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (of This is the End previously, and the co-writers of Superbad, The Green Hornet, Pineapple Express), with a story the duo wrote with "The Daily Show" scribe Dan Sterling. In the comedy, James Franco plays the handsome talk show host of "Skylark Tonight" who finds himself and his producer (Rogen) into a dangerous CIA organized plot to assassinate the leader of North Korea under the guise of a television interview. Columbia Pictures released Rogen & Goldberg's new comedy The Interview in limited theaters and VOD outlets on Christmas Day.

I dug the interview. My kind of humor. This discussion also shows who the real perpetrators are with regards to all the drama. It ain't the hackers or NK, its really the stupid stupid mass media. (not incl. Firstshowing of course :))

Well, let me tease you a bit here, Sascha. Someone who claims that they 'dug' the Interview and it's their kind of humor might not have much of a leg to stand on in labeling anything, anything, stupid, stupid; you know, seeings how said movie is pretty stupid itself? Righto cheerio? Just teasing you so take it easy and no getting upset..okay? Especially as I do agree with you that the mass media is pretty stupid, but it is what it is and it's ours...so to speak. And FirstShowing is part of the mass media which doesn't mean I think it stupid...just part of it all. And I'll pass on the movie for the reasons I stated. I've seen enough of it and Rogen's stuff to be able to ascertain that. I fear if I had to watch that kind of stuff for any length of time I'd look for the nearest window to jump out of...lol...glad you liked it though. Peace.

Please don't talk to me in a derogatory tone only to tell me you're just 'teasing'. Just because i like these kind of comedies doesn't make my other opinions on films any less valid. This movie is exactly what the makers say it is: A silly over the top comedy/satire. Still. Such movie can be done in a smart way or completely dumb ( see scary movie as an example). The interview isn't an Oscar contender but for its own genre, its pretty clever and outrages. If you already don't like that Rogen humor then, no this movie isn't for u. Which has zero to do with my own enjoyment of it.

True this Sascha.

DAVIDPD on Dec 27, 2014


Ah, Sascha...twice I suggested I was 'good-naturedly' teasing you and still you wish(ed) to see it as a 'derogatory tone'. That's on you, man. One could look at your labeling the mass media, which is only other people doing their jobs, as stupid, stupid as being a bit derogatory in tone also. Folks seem to perceive something being done to them that they themselves do to others? Well, let's not get too heavy here. Let me make it worse...or better?...and again...just teasing, man....here goes...: To use your terminology, I see it as the stupid, stupid media, urging stupid, stupid people to see a stupid, stupid movie and then stupid, stupid people (us?) commenting on the whole stupid, stupid affair. Hey, how about that? Better for ya, or worse? Up to you as it's all in your head, Sascha. They are your thoughts and yours alone and I, nor the media have nothing to do with what you think. It's your thoughts. Have a good one...and...peace, man! Glad you liked the movie...lol...

Your tone seemed derogatory to me as well. You may have explicitly suggested you were teasing in good nature, but everything else indicated unambiguous contempt. I think your comment would've been funnier if you left out the passive in the aggressive, so I'd suggest picking a nature and sticking with it.

Snev De la Fontaine on Dec 28, 2014


Ah, a perception from the peanut gallery. Well, thank you for your unsolicited suggestion Snev, but I, of course, shall pass. Your perceptions are subjective and therefore unimportant...except to you. All this labeling and judgment and desires to try to get other people to do as you wish and behave like you want them to. My, my. Hear me now... the truth of the words I wrote and how I wrote them are not important. Your reactions to them, however, are...important. Ah, the power of movies. Even stupid and infantile ones. Isn't it wonderful? Good day to you, Snev and peace be with you. Good luck with your attempts to control others.

Bo on Dec 29, 2014


You're trying way too hard to be funny at the expense of someone else who was just stating his/her personal opinion on a subjective thing. You may want to tone it down a little.

Ricardo_PT on Dec 28, 2014


LOL! These guys. Never could have they imagined this kind of press.

DAVIDPD on Dec 27, 2014


I don't really trust Vice, but that was quite funny. Possibly until Rogan is gunned down.

Carpola on Dec 28, 2014


I saw the movie yesterday. Hated the first half, Franco was horrible, way too exaggerated, but the movie ends on a surprisingly good note and manages to be funny in its own style. And it's a parody, it makes fun of North koreans as much as it makes fun of americans.

Ricardo_PT on Dec 28, 2014


I thought this movie flat out sucked and was not funny at all and I usually like what these guys make
