    Probably, unless the ad guy works for Sony.

    What liability could Sony or the theaters possibly have? In order for a threat to be credible there needs to be some indication of ability to carry it out. I mean, if North Korea had a history of blowing up movie theaters in foreign countries then maybe there would be cause to claim negligence but barring that I just don't see where there would be any basis for a liability claim.

    I can't imagine this won't be used against people in the future. South Park, you name it.

    Seemed like the only rational thing to do.

    I'm not for censorship either, but threats like these need to be taken seriously

    Well, now that everyone knows that a simple threat can get the movie industry to pull a movie I guarantee you this will happen again, and it could just be some troll with an anonymous internet connection.

    Maybe it is a bad movie,
    That being said, the two stars, Franco and Rogen are usually pretty funny.
    I will watch the soon-to-be-released DVD----just to spite North Korea---- and give you my review.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    i was posting a comment, but now i can't decide if i'm more annoyed by NK or ****ty, unfunny comedy movies.

    i guess it's probably NK. still probably not going to watch the piece of ****, though, unless someone else is buying the drinks.
