    “The Interview” stars Seth Rogen and James Franco have canceled all upcoming media appearances following the latest threats made against theaters showing the movie, Variety has confirmed.

    The duo has withdrawn from previously scheduled press appearances, including Rogen’s Thursday appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and an interview with both of them on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, leading up to “The Interview’s” Christmas Day release. They were also booked for an appearance on Buzzfeed Brews in New York on Tuesday.

    According to insiders, Rogen and Franco are still scheduled to appear at Thursday’s New York special screening of “The Interview.” The two were at the Los Angeles premiere last week, but didn’t do press interviews.

    The Sony cyber attack, which has been ongoing since Nov. 24, escalated to new levels on Tuesday, when a hacker group calling itself The Guardians of Peace threatened a 9/11-like attack on theaters showing “The Interview.”

    “The world will be full of fear,” the message from hackers reads. “Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.) Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.”

    There’s been suspicions that North Korea is behind the attack because of the nature of the plot of “The Interview,” in which Rogen and Franco play characters embarking on a mission to assassinate Kim Jong-un. North Korea has denied involved in the attacks, but called the hack a “righteous deed.”


    LOL! Like these faggots will do anything. I'm going to go and enjoy a quality comedy movie!

  2. What a bunch of babies. Just buy a damn Xbox One already.
  3. another 9/11 must happen
  4. LOL, these jerks won't do anything.
  5. I hope it is NK, then we can finally nuke the ****s.
  6. the quote sounds like mid 20's v for vendetta fanboys. Pure and absolute bullshit.
  7. Honestly, I think it's completely classless, even abhorrent, that Sony chose to make a movie, let alone a comedy, about the assassination of another nation's sovereign leader.
  8. Hopefully The Interview will go to straight to DVD, it looked pretty good.
  9. Sony is supposed to do a Video on Demand streaming thing with it... trying to get some of that $40 million back.
  10. I'm willing to bet that this is Microsoft trying to go after Sony for killing them in the console sales.:burns:
    It's no matter, you'll probably be able to find it on a stream site within the next week.

  11. These people are retarded. All they are doing is giving this movie 1 million X more exposure than it ever would have gotten otherwise lol. I guess you don't get into the business of terrorism if you are brimming with common sense doe

    Should just sell it on dvd and watch the money pour in.
  13. Assuming this is how the whole thing will play out..

    1) Released on Digital Video for a few months prior to anything else to get some funds back.
    2) Two months after that make the DVD/Blu-Ray released.
    3) Sign a deal with Netflix/Hulu/Crackle about 6 months after that.

    That $40 Mil will be back in Sony's pocket in no time..

    Was really looking forward to some of these celeb appearances.

    PS) I like how North Korea's Government is being blamed for the hacks.
  14. You guys see the new threat?

    Wow, what a bunch of arrogant assholes. This movie needs to be displayed on the biggest god damn movie screen we can find. Can we project it onto the atmosphere or something!? :boss1:
  15. inb4 The Interview becomes the most illegally streamed movie of all time...

    I say just let the movie play in every theater in the country and then see what happens. You must not let the terrorists win!

  16. Lol can't believe Sony's backing down.. most likely with pressure from the US Gov't but still, no reason to back out.. Do we really believe North Korea is going to do something of extreme measures?

    Let's send Dennis Rodman w/ a copy of the movie over there and have him get high on opium with Kim and then watch the movie with him.. I'm sure Kim will be like "i'm an idiot.."
