Motion Picture "The Interview" Scheduled Release Cancelled Due To Terrorists Threats


Quote:
LOS ANGELES — Sony Pictures Entertainment on Wednesday dropped plans for its Christmas Day release of “The Interview,” a movie that depicts the assassination of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, after receiving a terror threat against theaters.

Before that, the four largest theater chains in the United States said they would not show the movie, which has been at the center of a devastating hacking attack on Sony over the last several weeks. In a statement, Sony said: “We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theatergoers.”

American intelligence officials on Wednesday concluded that the North Korean government was centrally involved with the attacks on Sony’s computers. That determination and the cancellation of the film were new twists in a series of developments that has found a major studio fighting for its art, and perhaps life, against forces driven by a foreign government.
Sony Pictures just got publically punked and conceded to demands.... there is officially no longer "freedom of expression in Hollywood anymore....

Sony is just playing this WINDFALL GODSEND publicity for all it's worth.

Mark my words. That movie will play and it will be huge. Much bigger than if NK had just ignored it.

Streisand effect. People never learn.

FBI connects hack to North Korea


The FBI has connected North Korea to the Sony Pictures cyberattack, a federal law enforcement source told Fox News on Wednesday. The administration is expected to call out North Korea on its role Thursday, though North Korea has publicly denied its involvement.

The source also told Fox the hacking attack did not necessarily come from inside the borders of North Korea.


Until Wednesday, the Obama administration had said it was not clear who might have been responsible for the hack.

Actors cancel appearances

The film's two main actors James Franco and Seth Rogen have canceled all promotional appearances.

It was obviously NK. With the exception of some kind of false flag scheme they are the only org that cares enough to go to this much work over the release of the film.

Let's not forget that KJU is literally supreme dictator for life there. His people are among the most poverty stricken in the world, in some part because he hoards the nation's domestic product for himself. It's absolutely in line with his prior actions to train or obtain some talented hackers and have them break into Sony and issue threats simply because he feels that his image is being damaged. All of his power is built around ensuring that his people consider him tantamount to a living god.
