It's safe to say no threat should go unnoticed. Mainly because if anything were to happen to anyone heading to see Seth Rogen and James Franco's new comedy The Interview, well then it would be terrible if we didn't take this threat very seriously.
Earlier, reporters were contacted through reusable email addresses with a threat to any movie theater showing The Interview, and to anyone who seeks "fun in terror". The threat also notes that the attack could mimick the September 11th tragedy and that the premiere wouldn't be a safe place for anyone to attend either. The Sony emails were one thing, but now this is starting to get nuts.
Read the note here:
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places "The Interview" be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
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.
All the world will denounce the SONY.
North Korea, the setting for which Rogen's movie about assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, has denied any involvement but that's not to say that it's totally out of the question. I doubt our government knows about most people's involvement in anything here either. I picked my ear for a good 5 minutes yesterday. Doubt they knew that. Now they do.
Personally, I wasn't planning on seeing The Interview opening weekend, if at all, so I'm in the clear. Looks more like a Redbox rental. So I say we all buy twice as many tickets, go home, and read a book. Consider it a donation to the annoyance Sony has already gone through with this crap.
