Disgraceful. They aren't even allowed out of the country so they aren't going to bomb movie theaters. I love how the famous independent movie theatre, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, played Team America instead. Take that you bastards.

Alamo also cancelled all showings of Team America. A Steve Carell North korean thriller has also been shut down prior to filming.

This whole event has been a crazy ride, but I don't think Sony is at fault. They were pretty damn committed to releasing this film UNTIL all of the theatre chains refused to play it. I give Sony mad props for how they have dealt with this situation.

Paramount pulled Team America so that the Alamo Drafthouse couldn't show. It I've always hated movie studios and they are showing why.

Yeah, I give zero props to Sony. First they blamed the theaters. Then tried to blame the government. Now that the government said they don't understand why they pulled it, they are back to blaming theaters.

In the meantime, I personally don't understand why this movie couldn't have been made with a fictional character. Wth did they expect would happen? If another country made a movie depicting the assassination of any of our leaders, most (not all of course, there are some that would cheer lol) would be pissed in this country... But of course we are 'murica, we are entitled.

In the meantime, Sony thinks the government should be protecting our internet against hackers better. Hey Sony, how about you don't store passwords in a folder called "passwords." That would be a good start don't you think?

You're saying that like having a "Passwords" folder is a bad thing. I thought everyone had one on their computer.

YES. While I hate Sony and think they are a bunch of wimps to do this, you hit the nail on the head. We are a bunch of entitled people in this country. IF they made a movie about Obama, we'd be screaming racism and bull shit from our part of the world too. NOW, I thin NK is piece of shit country to have done what they did and make the threats they made. I also think the movie studios are a bunch of pussy wimps (excuse my french). This whole thing is just so sad. At the end of the day, another dictator ruled the way our "freedom" should be. That's going to set a very, very bad precedent.

People have done things against the president of the US constantly and have for many decades. They just don't make movies in those places. But they do things like burn them in effigy constantly. I can see why North Korea was pissed but what they did in response is an act of war.
