Seth Rogen and James Franco Invade North Korea in Trailer for 'The Interview'

It was only last summer that Seth Rogen took his career to a whole new level with This Is the End, a hilarious apocalyptic comedy that marked his directorial debut alongside Evan Goldberg. The film turned out to be a smash, and Rogen got to hang out with his buddies for the entire thing. And while he's still riding high on his latest starring turn in Neighbors, Rogen has another ridiculous laugher on the way in The Interview, a spy comedy that reunites him with Goldberg and Pineapple Express's James Franco.

The "western capitalist pigs" have released the first trailer for The Interview along with a crazy new poster that has Rogen and Franco looking like a couple of James Bond-types. Rogen stars and co-directs the film, playing the producer and best friend of a celebrity talk show host (Franco) who scores a major sit-down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un (Randall Park), only to have the CIA ask them to assassinate him. So basically this is Rogen's take on Spies Like Us, only this looks a heck of a lot funnier.

Also starring Lizzy Caplan and Timothy Simons (Veep), The Interview opens October 10th.
