Seth Rogen and James Franco

North Korea Seth Rogen James Franco MovieThe North Korean government is pleading with the United Nations to help block the release of Seth Rogen and James Franco's new movie "The Interview" ... calling the flick an act of war.

Ja Song Nam -- the North’s Ambassador to the United Nations -- filed a formal complaint with the U.N. saying the U.S. government should squash the film's release ... because the central storyline involves assassinating Kim Jong-un.

Nam explains, "To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent Head of a sovereign State should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war."

So far, no response from Rogen ... but earlier this month when North Korea first complained, he tweeted, "People don't usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they've paid 12 bucks for it."
