This threat is based off of the fact that the movie “The Interview” shows the assassination of North Korea’s current leader Kim Jong Un being assassinated. The threat also mentions that it could be reminiscent of what happened on September 11th, 2001. Guardians Of Peace released a statement saying “Remember the 11th of September 2001.”
Sony has cancelled every single one of their releases for “The Interview” included the New York City premier. All press appearances and releases have also been cancelled. Regal Cinemas, AMC, Carmike and Cinemark all elected to pull the film from their release list as well.
