The mostly wordless YouTube upload offers a shift in tone in comparison to its previously-released clips and teasers

When Sony Pictures made The Interview available to VOD viewers on Christmas Eve, the studio also unveiled a new trailer for the film.

The latest YouTube upload offers a shift in tone in comparison to its previously-released clips and teasers, as the mostly wordless trailer for the controversial R-rated comedy introduces James Franco, Seth Rogen and Randall Park only visually, at first. After the montage, leave it to Lizzy Caplan to get the chatter going, specifically about talking to dolphins and using the bathroom.

And with so few lines spotlighted in the trailer, one of its latter jokes now gets more of a meta landing. "Kim must die — that's the American way," says Franco. But how many times can the U.S. make the same mistake — whether within the film itself or, possibly, of taunting the hackers who have advised against the film's release? "As many times as it takes!" asserts Franco.

Watch the latest trailer, which plays on YouTube's landing page for renting/buying the film, below.
