HACKERS WIN -

If the movie theater near you was showing this movie - would you go ahead and see it ? I am surprised that Sony just didn't pull a move and release this movie on On-demand, Netflix , or something ..or even have it on iTunes / Google Play.
I understand that the fear of someone getting hurt because of a film is not necessary. I salute the movie theaters by making this bold move. - Crunkatlanta
The Daily Mail Reported - The five largest theater chains in North America have announced that they are pulling The Interview from their schedules after hackers threatened 9/11-like terror attacks on cinemas showing the Sony Pictures film.
Combined - Regal, AMC, Cinemark, Cineplex and Carmike - operate more than half of the country's 40,000 cinemas.
In a statement, Regal said it was delaying any showings of The Interview because of 'the ambiguous nature of any real or perceived security threats.'
The Department of Homeland Security has said there was 'no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters,' but noted it was still analyzing messages from the group, dubbed GOP aka Guardians of Peace.
HACKERS' CHILLING WARNING THREATENS CINEMA ATTACKS
The Guardians of Peace threat released on Tuesday reads:
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.
