That doesn't mean Kim Jong-un won't watch the comedy. A spokesperson for the dictator confirms that the dictator will be first in line when the movie opens in October.
This is what Kim Myong-chol, executive director of The Centre for North Korea-US Peace and an unofficial spokesman for the regime in Pyongyanghad, to say about the delicate situation.
Kim Myong-chol went onto accuse Hollywood movies of being full of 'assassinations and executions', and claimed that British films are far more superior and realistic. He also sites Korea's affinity for the James Bond franchise, except for the 2002 entry Die Another Day, which pitted 007 Pierce Brosnan against the North Koreans.
The Interview isn't the first movie to go after a North Korean dictator. Team America: World Police, from the creators of South Park, featured a storyline that revolved around the assassination of Kim Jong-un's real-life father, Kim Jong-il.

The Interview comes to theaters December 25th, 2014 and stars James Franco, Seth Rogen, Randall Park, Lizzy Caplan, Diana Bang, Tommy Chang, Charles Chun, Dominique Lalonde. The film is directed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen.
