    Didn't think it was that serious. Apparently it is.

    When you endanger potentially millions of civilians lives and use 9/11 in your statement, then yeah it's serious. Sony acted professionally and smart. Good on them for being not selfish.

    Nope. Cineplex is one of the big movie theater chains that are also pulling it.

    And where the $#@! is Anonymous in all of this? Why aren't they helping to find these $#@!ing $#@!s? Not morally justifiable enough of a cause of them?

    Well they're a disjointed group aren't they? As in not one official unified entity.

    But yeah, I don't see how at least 1 from them didn't bother.

    Think it makes sense to pull it, it was a stupid idea in the first place.
    Imagine the uproar if it were Obama they were set to take down.
    There are some lines you shouldn't cross, dunno how this movie ever got the green light.

    This whole thing has divided people into two groups on the Internet: Rational and crazy. I've been called a coward for supporting Sony's smart and professional move from the very people who also hated George Bush, but used his exact words: we don't negotiate with terrorists.

    Bad move, sony. Now hackers will think they can do this any time they want. Releasing the movie would of sent a message to the hackers.

    They can still release the movie with VOD or Netflix. People will see it then even more, in the safety of their home.

    Dave Skylark and producer Aaron Rapoport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight." When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to turn their trip to Pyongyang into an assassination mission.

    An obnoxious TV talkshow host and his producer are informed Kim Jong Un likes their show and invites them to North Korea for an interview. Before they hop on the plane, the CIA stops the TV host and his producer and ask them to assassinate the president of North Korea.

    The following real life events are because of this movie. North Korea got seriously butthurt so they ordered a group of hackers to hack Sony. I'm surprised they weren't pissed off with Team America or any other time South Park rips on them. The 9/11 threats were not cool. I hope the president of North Korea actually gets assassinated even more now.

    Sony shouldn't have given in and as much as I think N.Korea are bat$#@! crazy I do think this movie was a stupid idea - even if I was looking forward to watching it myself.

    Imagine the fuss the U.S. would kick up about a film plotting to assassinate their current leader.

    Not much of a fuss, since it's been done before several times. It would only be bad if the villain in the movie was American himself. The US can get butthurt, but North Korea is on another dimension of butthurt. What a bunch of degenerate pansies. As if this movie would miraculously save the North Koreans from their dictatorship. Nothing would change.

    Yeah, no saving that brainwashed nation. I always think of this photo when I think of that country



    I'd love to go there though. If only for that surreal experience.

    It's very correct that Sony pulled this video, attacking our great and venerable leader, the mighty Kim-Jong Un! All hail Kim!

    Sucks they gave in, but looking from Sony's point of view I can understand it for sure. If they did screen it and stuff would happen, it'd cause great harm to them and everybody would've blamed Sony for not pulling the movie.
    Now they pulled it and people blame them for giving in.

    There's no proof that it has been pulled from release though..? All I read was that the movie might be set to a later screen-date (for cinemas). Curious if they'd do it or not.
    A little sad that a pair of hackers go this far though... I really thought that they wouldn't accomplish anything except release private info about the company etc. but this..?
    They should learn the definition between 'reality' and 'movie'... Yes, they laugh with Kim Jong Un, but who the hell in the world doesn't? The net's sprayed with KJU memes, they going to threaten all those people too? -.-

    Not much choice, 5 major cinema companies pulled it before sony...

    The hackers claimed they were going to blow up theatres who did show it. No choice but to cancel.

    I'd be nervous if I had anything to do with the making of that film.

    Sony of America is a subsidary of the main one in Japan. The decision most likely came from them. They probably want to minimize any lawsuits that would come if something did happen. The U.S. wouldn't pull a movie based on a threat that isn't even credible. No way. Too much money to be made. The movie will be released sooner or later.

    Yea, but Sony of Japan owns Sony of America and they oversee all tbose decisions. They aren't two separate companies. SOA is just a umbrella company under SOJ. Apple and MS have umbrella companies in other countries but they hire other people to manage them. Paramount was also threatened over their Team America movie.
