Set for December 25th in the US and February 6th in the UK, ‘The Interview’ revolves around a talk show host (James Franco) and his producer (Seth Rogen) as they find themselves in way over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea. Directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, the likes of Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park, Timothy Simons and Charles Rahi Chun also star in the action comedy.
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.

With the first trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ arriving online this past Tuesday, director Colin Trevorrow took some time out of his post-production schedule to talk to Empire about the film’s trailer. First up, on why ‘Jurassic World’ is introducing a new lab-designed dinosaur (rumoured to be called the “D-Rex”), Trevorrow says, “There is no shortage of awesome [real] dinosaurs. We could have populated this entire story with new species that haven’t been in any of these movies. But this new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. We’re always hungry for the next thing, and those who profit from it are always looking to feed that hunger. The focus groups want something bigger than a T-Rex. And that’s what they get.”
