The upcoming comedy, The Interview, with James Franco and Seth Rogen has already stirred-up plenty of controversy before it’s even reached it’s release date. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, went so far as to declare the movie’s public release an “act of war,” and a group of hackers called the Guardians of Peace have released several Sony Pictures corporate documents that they attained after hacking the company’s computer database last month in an effort to stop the release. But thus far Sony has given no public statement saying that they will pull the film from theaters, so as far as we all know, it is still scheduled for release this Christmas Day. The plot of the movie revolves around a pair of reporters who are recruited by the CIA to infiltrate North Korea under the guise of interviewing Kim Jong Un, and then assassinate Un at their first opportunity. Seth Rogen co-directed the movie with Evan Goldberg (This Is The End, Neighbors), and the film also stars Lizzy Caplan (127 Hours, Hot Tub Time Machine) and Randall Park (Dinner For Schmucks, Sex Tape). Screenwriter Dan Sterling (The Sarah Silverman Project, The Office) wrote the screenplay with Rogen and Goldberg. You can watch the trailer here on MADE, and if going to the movies on Christmas Day is a family thing (or just your thing!) then by all means, go and see it this December 25th.
Tomorrow, Niles Miller will be LIVE at Cause on Lake & Lyndale so it’s only right that we throw up his last project.

This was definitely one of the more solid projects that came out of Minneapolis in 2013, check it out above and make sure to catch Niles LIVE at Cause tomorrow.
We posted this video awhile back but I like it so much that I decided to throw it up again. The homie Cody DeCamry just celebrated a birthday so we decided to post one of his best (our opinion). Set in the party filled, drugged induced 80s; the video is dope with plenty of room for comedy. Take a look at the video and stay tuned for more.
