America Bows To Purported North Korean Terror Threat

THEATERS WON’T SHOW COMEDY FILM AFTER HACKERS THREATEN VIOLENCE

By FITSNEWS || We love Seth Rogen.  And James Franco.  And comedies with political twists.

What do we not love?  Cowardice … which is exactly what America’s theater chains are demonstrating by their refusal to show Sony Pictures’ “The Interview.”

The movie – which depicts an attempted assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un – is being pulled from virtually every American theater due to an anonymous internet threat vowing to attack anyone who went to see the film.

“We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time,” the hackers stated.  “If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.”

Would-be movie-goers were also advised to “remember the 11th of September 2001.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicated there was nothing to suggest the threat was credible, but that didn’t stop AMC, Regal, Carmike, Cinemark, ArcLight, Bow Tie Cinemas and other chains from pulling the movie.

Ridiculous …

Now … if you’ve still got the money to see movies in theaters, more power to you.  We don’t … but these ridiculous threats (presumably coming from the same people who hacked Sony a few weeks ago) almost make us want to go see “The Interview.”

Almost …

“The Interview” – which Rogan and Franco have stopped promoting – was supposed to open on Christmas.

Scoreboard?  North Korea 1 – America 0.  Seriously, people … we just got punked by a country that photoshops its military.

UPDATE: This morning at the gym, our founding editor happened to catch an MSNBC host blaming the whole thing on Sony for producing a movie that contemplated the assassination of North Korea’s dictator.   Really?  It’s Seth Rogen.  And James Franco.  Dude.  Come on!

I cannot believe that everyone is scared of this two bit “punk”!! He is a lunatic period. I will gladly meet him on the field of battle anytime any day and take him out! He is a tyrant who has no respect for human life and is only concerned with himself. I spent two years in the far east in the US Army so I know his type very well. I do not know why anyone is scared of this punk! His father and grandfather were a@@holes and so is he.

Marty December 18, 2014 at 7:24 am

Tell me again how spending two years in the Army in the far east qualifies you to know “this type very well.” Why don’t you just slip on over to NK and “take him out?” You sure sound full of braggadocio. Sort of like Kim.

This issue can be settled very easily by adding 3 minutes to the ending of the film. Just let Lil’ Kim (playing himself) be “resurrected” by none other than Lil’ Barry (playing himself), and then together they can try (unsuccessfully) to resurrect Dennis Rodman (playing himself)..!?!?

hacking and threat is in the open, Sony and the movie theaters should
run this movie for free throughout the world while hacking North Korea
back by (HACKING) jamming all of their TV stations and internet to show
the movie to the North Koreans throughout the country for the next 48
hours nonstop so they can see the movie as well while making the point

A theater chain and an entertainment company folded, not the US. As a matter of fact, BHO said (just prior to the announcement of the fold) that Americans should “go to the
movies.” That’s a good answer. If Sony had balls they’d stream the stupid movie online or give it away, although they should still be able to figure out a way to make some money off of it eventually.

That’s one of the great ones. I learned my night driving from watching that movie.

When I was posted to a Greek island one night, pitch-black dark, I was bringing a girl back from a late night date on the coast on narrow, treacherous roads over a steep mountain. My car was a beautiful Morris Minor with stick shift and a purring motor and I was having a hoot driving like a maniac and showing off. She thought I was a cool dude, that is until we hit a crest and about five super-bright lights lit us up and I stopped just short of hitting the barbed wire blockade!

I’m confessing that I almost shit in my pants! It was a British Army group training for night-time blockades, and the commanding officer said I scared the shit out of them too because they didn’t hear me coming until the last curve. They hadn’t stopped anyone for several hours and they didn’t expect anyone would be on the road until morning. He said his men never moved faster!

I was pretty damn nervous staring into the barrels of those damn guns just about a foot from my face.

. Thanks for bringing this memory back for me – I’m adding this to my memoirs!
