The trailer for the Vancouver-filmed The Interview was released early last week and has already amassed 3 million views.
The action-comedy is about Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) who run the wildly popular celebrity talk show Skylark Tonight.
They discover that North Korean leader/dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show. They land an interview with Kim Jong-un but as they prepare to travel to Pyongyang, North Korea, their plans change.
The CIA has recruited Rogen and Franco’s characters to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
