The North Korean regime has unsurprisingly attacked a Hollywood comedy movie with James Franco and Seth Rogen as representing the “desperation” of American society. A spokesman for Kim Jong-Un said the dictator would probably watch The Interview, which sees two talk show host tasked with assassinating the controversial leader after being granted a rare face-to-face.

Kim Myong-choi, executive director of the Centre for North Korea-US Peace and an unofficial spokesman for the regime in Pyongyang was dismissive of the movie. "There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society," he told The Telegraph. "A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the US has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine," he added. "And let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans. "In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the US military wants to kill him as well," Kim Myong-chol said.

"James Bond is a good character and those films are much more enjoyable," he said.

Early reaction to The Interview – which surely boasts one of the finest movie posters of recent times – have delivered mixed responses with some suggesting it distasteful.

Nevertheless, Rogen recently scored a monster hit with comedy Neighbors, about a young couple who have a fraternity move in next door. It co-starred Zac Efron and talks for an immediate sequel are apparently well underway.
