Netflix set to begin streaming The Interview this weekend

Starting this Saturday, Netflix users will be able to stream The Interview as part of their standard subscription.

Since its tumultuous theatrical release, the controversial comedy has been available from many on-demand sources as well as across a limited number of theaters. Just like all other Netflix content, you’ll be able to stream The Interview on your favorite mobile device or media box.

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 leader 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 most unlikely candidates, to ‘take out’ Kim Jong-un.
