James Franco and Seth Rogan vs Kim Jong Un?
I heard that North Korea will consider this an act of terrorism if this is released and they say they will retaliate of it does.
I'm really interested in seeing this. The concept is just so ridiculous, and I love how ballsy it is. Seth Rogen and James Franco work well as a comedic duo, and I do look forward to seeing their attempt to assassinate Kim Jong Un. No one is making North Korea watch this movie, so they should back off, get a sense of humor, not release it in their country, and most of all look at why people portray them as villains.
I wanna go see this with Bradders. It'd be an epic bro experience.
Sony Hack: Carmike Cinemas Drops 'The Interview'â€‚ - The Hollywood Reporter
Well this pisses me off. There are pretty much two theaters even close to me, and both of them are Carmike. If I go anywhere else, I would have to pay a crap ton for gas. I was planning to see this over my Christmas break too. I can understand why there is some controversy, but shouldn't people watch the movie first before people get upset about it. Given the reaction this has gotten, there is probably no way Charlie Chaplin could have released The Great Dictator nowadays. People are really overreacting about this.
Traveling probably won't matter now.
Source: Top Five Theater Circuits Drop 'The Interview' After Sony Hack - The Hollywood Reporter
That's every theater in my area now not showing this. I mean I avoid torrenting like the plague but it might be the only option at this point.
I don't really understand, are the people hacking Sony working for North Korea? Or are there Americans that are outraged about this movie for some reason?
Either way, since when do movie studios take internet threats seriously?
I doubt North Korea as spiteful as they can be will start an international incident over a film. There is controversy for sure, and they don't like, but I don't think they'll start WWIII over it when they haven't done it the other times they have threatened it.
Internet threats are taken pretty seriously nowadays, and the Aurora shooting wasn't that long ago.
I really would love to know just who the hell is behind these hacks. It seems unlikely that they're affiliated with North Korea, but since North Korea holds the only people in the world who would be pissed off at a negative portrayal of the country, I can't imagine anyone else caring enough about this movie to pull off this hack.
The hackers threatened to do a 9/11 style attack on any movie theater that showed this movie.
A scare tactic, but a damn good one. Weather if it's a bluff... We'll find out the hard way.
I can just see it fifteen years from now that there will probably be a movie about the making of this movie and the controversy of its release.
There have been numerous live-fire incidents between the North and South which are faaaaar more imminent war threats than this. If it is the North, then by comparison, this is cupcakes...
So to be a 9/11 attack, they'll have to hijack some planes and fly it into theaters. Hope they know what auditorium is showing it. Don't want to look stupid taking out the Hobbit by mistake.
This movie isn't being pulled from theaters because of any sort of credible threat to the movie-going public.
All of Sony's dirty laundry is being aired in public and all these other corporations are scared of being in similar situations. It's complete bullshit.
I also don't see how this movie could possibly be as big of an insult to North Korea as Team America: World Police was.
I like how the media is like "we don't know the source of these hacks"...
Is it wrong to say Chloe Grace Moretz is pretty hot?
Just wait until February then you're good.
Team America was puppets. This is live action where the whole point is to assassinate current living North Korea's ruler, whose people worship him. Easier more offensive to them.
