    This pile of crap will be the highest watched movie in the history of film, because every american will see it as a protest against terrorism. MURICA!!! Genius marketing trick.

    In a way I’m glad it’s been canceled, the movie looked like it sucked anyway, especially with that Franco person he’s the worst.

  • Violet

    Never thought I would agree with Newt Gingrich.

  • Pretty Little Mars

    This movie is about two white boys going on a mission to assassinate a foreign President THAT IS ALSO A THREAT OF TERRORISM. Just saying.

  • Vy Nguyen

    Is this PR to a whole new level? No too far. Nevertheless, I’m no more interested in seeing it than before. I would love it if it were a PR stunt and they get called out for it though, oh man that would make my day.

  • Jacqueline Ravelle Bass Myers

    Really a bad idea to pull the movie to appease cyber terrorist..sets a dangerous precedent for sure. Having said that..the movie was also a bad idea.

  • Justin Aniston

    Everyone is talking of Freedom of Speech, but if it was the other way around, with North Korea making a movie with the same topic, America would react PRETTY crazy, too!

  • FuckWatYouThought

    oh stfu

  • Justin Aniston

    Classy.

  • Justin Aniston

    Not really.

  • FuckWatYouThought

    yup ;0)

  • Vy Nguyen

    Furthermore, I’m mildly disappointed at how people are aggressively lashing out and thinking it’s a battle. By cancelling is saying they’re giving in. I don’t see it that way.

    I think when threats like this are made, they need to be assessed, perhaps they have enough evidence to know that this should not be taken lightly hence their decision to take it down. Can you imagine if they ignored it and something bad happened? There would be no sympathy at all, just utter outrage. Additionally, it will reinforces eternal vigilance. But that’s too much to go into right now .

  • Jon Carey

    OK, but if the movie were about north Korean people trying to kill Obama, how will America and the government will react. Just saying. It’s about respect and common sense. Humanity. COMMON.

  • Revengefan0101

    Nah… You couldn’t pay me to watch a James Franco movie.

  • Revengefan0101

    They should just made up a fake country and fake leader for this movie instead.

  • Chris N.

    Agreed, it was a stupid idea from the get go. I’d rather chew glass than watch that crap.

  • Chris N.

    We agree with you. Ignore the troll below.

  • Justin Wimmer

    Do you seriously think America would go crazy if they made a movie about killing Obama? Personally i dont think we would care. it would be horribly low budget and it would never make it to theaters. And probably way more offensive too. We might talk about the movie maybe but i doubt the government would make terrorist threats about a movie. Thats just a crazy north korean thing.

  • smmy33

    A movie depicting the assassination of President Bush, while he was President was released , no one in the US or the government did anything to threaten the release of the movie

  • smmy33

    Are seriously retarded , do you have any idea of what society is like in North Korea, why don’t you inform yourself of how 90% of the people live in that country then talk about some moral equivalence .

    If you can’t call out a truly evil society or country your truly pathetic person and the idiots you green arrow dumb comment .
