"Sony 'was warned by Department of Homeland Security' that film about assassination attempt on Kim Jong Un could provoke retaliation " - Daily Mail
Would this lead to a war with North Korea over a movie ?
The cyber attack will take a toll of Sony's revenue it was seeking from those films. When movies leak on the net, the boot leg/ pirate movie market is in full speed. Many people can't help to fall into the love of something free.
With the potential cost of jail time that many don't believe it could happen to them.
*Federal officials have not yet been able to identify the culprits responsible for a $100million cyber attack on Sony despite claims that North Korea targeted the company due to a film about Kim Jong Un.
In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show "Skylark Tonight." When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
