Sony Pictures has released a new, full-length The Interview red-band trailer for the upcoming comedy, and it’s kind of fantastic. The film marks the directorial follow-up of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg after the excellent This Is the End and sees James Franco playing a popular entertainment news interviewer who, along with his producer (Rogen), is tasked with assassinating Kim Jong Un in North Korea. While the first trailer was just a taste of what we could expect from the pic, this new one dives deep into the plot while also revealing a bevy of wonderful cameos from the likes of Rob Lowe, Timothy Simons (Veep), and Anders Holm (Workaholics). Not only does the movie look incredibly funny (and filthy), but the prospect of Lizzy Caplan as a CIA agent is highly promising.
Watch the new The Interview red-band trailer after the jump. The film opens in theaters on December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Interview:
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.
