The first trailer for James Franco and Seth Rogen's new movie The Interview rolled out online on Wednesday night (June 11, 2014) giving fans their first look at the frankly bizarre comedy that sees a would-be interviewer and his producer buddy tasked with assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Rogen had tweeted out the stunning poster a couple of hours before.

Franco plays the clueless tabloid TV presenter who is informed that Jong-un is a fan of his low-brow show and wants him to become the first western journalist to quiz him. Before he and his pal head out to the east, they are contacted by the CIA who want to capitalize on the opportunity to get close to the fearsome leader. By the looks of the trailer, nothing goes to plan.

"People have the hypothetical discussion about how journalists have access to the world's most dangerous people, and they hypothetically would be in a good situation to assassinate them," said Rogen of The Interview.

Though we're probably guaranteed laughs from Rogen and Franco - who worked spendidly together in This is the End - more interesting is that The Interview represents Evan Goldberg's first time behind the camera.

Goldberg is the executive-producer supreme behind the likes of Knocked Up, Superbad, Pineapple Express, 50/50, This Is the End and the recent monster hit Neighbors. 

The Interview - also starring 'Masters of Sex' star Lizzy Caplan and Charles Rahi Chun as the dictator himself - is set to hit theaters in the U.S in early October, though we're still waiting to hear about a North Korean release.
