'Team America: World Police' Showings Cancelled By Paramount After Sony Hack Threats
Paramount Pictures has now cancelled screenings of Team America: World Police in light of The Interview‘s cancellations due to the massive Sony hack.
Both movies’ plots rely heavily on North Korea and specifically the North Korean dictators Kim Jong-il and Kim Jong-un.
After this Texas theater made headlines for saying it was showing Team America: World Police in lieu of The Interview, the theater sent out a new tweet explaining that they no longer would be able to.
“Due to to circumstances beyond our control, the TEAM AMERICA 12/27 screening has been cancelled. We apologize & will provide refunds today,” the theater wrote. Another theater in Cleveland confirmed that Paramount was shutting down the viewings.
“Please note: Our Late Shift screening of Team America: World Police has been canceled by Paramount Pictures.” the Ohio theater tweeted.
Due to to circumstances beyond our control, the TEAM AMERICA 12/27 screening has been cancelled. We apologize & will provide refunds today.
