Trivia
The finale of the movie is completely foreshadowed by Dave Skylark (James Franco) early in the film when he's discussing his vision of how the assassination would go. He predicted that he would take a bullet in his bullet proof vest, they would escape into a secret tunnel, and eventually be brought home by "Seal team 6" on a zodiac, wrapped up in blankets.

The Russian text on the tank ("Pan ili propal") literally means "Lord or doomed", slavic saying with the meaning "All or Nothing".

When Skylark leaves the restaurant in Pyongyang after Kim's threats, a large, triangular building is visible in the background. This is the Ryugyong Hotel. Construction began in 1987, but was halted with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the hotel remained incomplete and was branded "the worst building in the world". In recent years the exterior has been completed, and the opening is mooted.

It would not be possible for the escaping Americans to reach the coast as quickly and easily as depicted in the movie. Pyongyang is 50 kilometers from the Yellow Sea. Kim's compound is depicted as being close to Pyongyang, but because it is in the mountains it must be further inland. It would be almost impossible for them and the Seals to reach the coast without crossing open country, as the coastal strip in North Korea is highly cultivated and cleared of trees, and Pyongyang is surrounded by the flood plain of the Taedong River. In the movie, by contrast, the Zodiac is only a relatively short walk away, and not even Rapoport seems fatigued.

The Koreans watching the interview in North Korea would not be able to understand what is going on since it is very likely they cannot speak English and there are no subtitles.

Ricin is not lethal if it comes in contact with skin, rather it only causes skin redness and pain. The plan would never have worked as intended.

Q
Is there a post-credit scene?

Q
Is "The Interview" the only movie to be cancelled?
A
No, and far from it.Because it was met with much controversy from the day it was announced to the public, The Interview has easily been put in the foreground as a modern-day banned film;. However, several other films have faced cancellation after being filmed or in the process of being produced:- Batman: Year One http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/LEVITIKUZsLOUNGE/news/?a=78800 - The Cornfield People http://geeksteronmovies.blogspot.com/p/the-cornfield-people.html - The Dark Tower http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Tower_(series)#Film.2FTelevision_adaptation - Godzilla vs. Frankenstein http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godzilla_vs._Frankenstein - LaBrava http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaBrava#Cancelled_Movie - Macbeth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbeth_(Olivier_film) - Newt http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Pixar_films#Canceled_projects - Pyongyang http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyongyang_(comics)#Film - Ripley's Believe It or Not! http://screenrant.com/riplys-believe-it-or-not-movie-jim-carrey-sandy-96140/ - Sprockets http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprockets_(Saturday_Night_Live)#Proposed_film_adaptationThe following article might also interest you: - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_entertainment_affected_by_the_September_11_attacks#Movies
Q
Is this film responsible for the Sony Pictures Entertainment hacking that caused the leaks of five films?
A
A group called Guardians of Peace claiming responsibility for the November 27 hack which leaked five Sony Pictures movies and personal data and emails from Sony computers. While the alleged hackers have claimed to be North Korea, there is no evidence that GOP are the hackers or that they are North Korean or that North Korea has any involvement in the hack. WIRED has made the case that the linking of North Korea to the hack is flimsy, and a former member of the hacktivist group Anonymous has expressed doubt that North Korea is behind the hacking or that the film The Interview would result in a hacking, stating, "Do you really think a bunch of nerds from North Korea are going to fly to New York and start blowing up movie theaters? No. It's not realistic. It's not about 'The Interview.' It's about money. It's a professional job."However, the FBI analysts have determined that the North Korean government is responsible for the hack attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment.-Technical analysis of the data deletion malware used in this attack revealed links to other malware that the FBI knows North Korean actors previously developed. For example, there were similarities in specific lines of code, encryption algorithms, data deletion methods, and compromised networks.-The FBI also observed significant overlap between the infrastructure used in this attack and other malicious cyber activity the U.S. government has previously linked directly to North Korea. For example, the FBI discovered that several Internet protocol (IP) addresses associated with known North Korean infrastructure communicated with IP addresses that were hardcoded into the data deletion malware used in this attack.-Separately, the tools used in the SPE attack have similarities to a cyber attack in March of last year against South Korean banks and media outlets, which was carried out by North Korea.Tech analysis http://krebsonsecurity.com/2014/12/fbi-north-korea-to-blame-for-sony-hack/-But now the FBI is identifying a Sony insider as the source of the hacking, suggesting that the Kim regime had nothing to do with the incident at all.
