Looks unbearable...which is pretty standard for anything involving Rogen or Franco. Them together?...instant pass.

That looks really bad. The first teaser trailer you got posted here makes it seem at least look bearable to watch. This last one makes it just god awful looking.

No, that Red Band trailer does not inspire confidence.

That said This is the End was amazing, so that will earn The Interview at least an initial "I'll watch it on Cable/Netflix", if word of mouth about this is outstanding then maybe I'll see it at the theater.

It's been heavily implied that this film was responsible for Sony Pictures Entertainment's servers getting hacked late last month. The perpetrator was supposedly North Korea, as they've made threats over this film.

It certainly looks like it.

theater premiere was canceled and a number of theaters are deciding to not show due to the vague threats of guardians of peace. hypocritical much for the name?

It's now at 50% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Sony should release it online.

As much as I thought that movie looked like crap (and it does, I could feel my IQ going lower while the trailer for it was playing) I am disturbed that it was canceled due to terrorism or extortion (choose whichever description you think most appropriate)

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, The Room, and Invasion from Inner Earth have played in more movie theaters than The Interview will...

This incident should be taken more seriously, it's an act of war IMHO. If NK can do this to a huge corporation like Sony then our financial institutions, infrastructure and power grid are dangerously at risk too.

I've seen all the comments online about this and how people are upset or how we let the terrorists win. I agree with TangeldThomas, while its been mostly a massive hacking situation who knows how far they were truly willing to go. This is the safest move to do.

I appreciate you agreeing with me but we shouldn't cave into threats or extortion, even over what may be a crappy movie this is still a threat on our way of life.

All I'm seeing here is they just not gonna release it on Christmas....which was a horrible date to begin with.

But whatever, didn't wanna see the movie anyways, it's sony's loss but also shows that we can't protect ourselves without big brother stepping in : / bring on the government control.

I hope they release it in mid-January or something... letting the terrorists win seems like a really bad precedent to set.

I'm guessing this ruckus is all stemming from this scene.

The likelihood that just the sheer stupidity of this film would have been its demise, but gotta love NK for hyping this film up now. It won't have even made it to NK.

Wait, I thought their goal was to stop the movie from being released. Isn't the hack just making it more readily available on the Internet instead?

As well as raising its profile from "dumb. unfunny comedy that'll have maybe one good week at the box office" to "major political cause."

Dear Sony Pictures:

Good call cancelling the movie's release. It was the safe thing to do. Now put it up on YouTube, in full. Show the terrorists who REALLY won today.

Sincerely, JB

I honestly think nothing was going to happen. The "terrorists" were too grandiose in their claims. "If you live near a movie theater, leave"? Really? Are they going to nuke the movie?

That said... you can't bomb every computer in America.

What is to stop them from threatening Google who own Youtube? This is why we don't negotiate with terrorists.

The moral of the story is: Cyberterrorism works. This sets a ghastly precedent.

I honestly would have watched this, damn shame. Hopefully Sony will release it on demand somehow, if I remember right it had a 40 million dollar budget, and Sony's not doing great overall, so they gotta make some of that back somehow. I really don't get Kim Jong-un's problem, his father got it much worse in Team America World Police, but I guess, in the end, he was just a little lonely.

This event has certainly made the various cyber security companies more profits... though i just gotta ask: cant we just cut ALL their communication lines (outside of those in China) to the outside world. you cant hack if you cant get a dial-tone, right?
