A few days ago, we got the red-band trailer for The Interview, and it was painfully funny. All the jokes were landing, and it helps that they’ve got a great premise: James Franco plays Dave Skylark, a vapid talk show host who, along with his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen), land an interview with Kim Jong-un (Randall Park). But their attempt at hard news gets upended when the CIA asks the duo to assassinate the North Korean leader. If you’re worried that the movie can’t work without R-rated jokes, this green-band trailer should put your mind at ease. This could easily be one of the funniest films of the year.
Hit the jump to watch the new trailer for The Interview. The film opens December 25th, and also stars Lizzy Caplan.

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.
