Sony Pictures has cancelled the planned release on 25 December of the film The Interview, after major cinema chains decided not to screen it.

The film is about a fictional plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Hackers have already carried out a cyber attack on Sony and warned the public to stay away from cinemas screening the film.

Sony hacked, documents released, theatres and Sony threatened by terrorists, and now, the film in question cancelled.

This is a superb PR stunt! And most of the people will uncritically believe it. Long live naiveté.

Besides, just for the info, if somebody sends an email to the White House threatening the president or just writes about killing him on the Internet, preferably before some foreign visit, he will be interrogated as a potential terrorist. Now, try making a movie about killing him, sit back and observe the reactions.
