In The Interview, James Franco and Seth Rogen's characters are recruited by the CIA to kill Kim Jong Un after landing an interview with him.

The spokesman said if Sony Pictures does release the film in October, as planned, there will be "merciless" retaliation against the U.S.
But it's hardly the first satire of Kim Jong Un. Watch USA NOW for other parodies of North Korea's leader.
