'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.

    Can we stop bending over and taking it up the ass? We’re kowtowing to NORTH KOREA. Let’s think about this for a second. Now they can claim anything is an act of war and threaten us. Are we going to cancel anything and everything they find offensive?

    Thank goodness the middle east and Russia have a better sense of humour than North Korea, or we would never have had a single action movie or season of 24.

    Free speech isn’t free! There are laws that protect potential victims from the fallout from someone’s free speech and that’s what this is about. It’s basic constitutional law 101. Free speech is all free? No. Look up Bradenburg v. Ohio 1969 , it was then that the modern conception of limits on the First Amendment, namely the ‘imminent danger’ test, was articulated. Free speech must be directly responsible for inciting immediate violence for it to be criminalized. There are limits, this is why you have free speech but it’s unlawful to yell “fire!” In a crowded theatre just for fun.
