    Default Sony Pictures, The Interview

    So now the "Guardians of the Peace" have threatened violence in movie theatres showing this film (how ironic is that)

    I figured that if Sony didn't pull this movie, that threats would escalate, but now all kinds of things are happening.

    They've pulled the promotional appearances of Seth Rogen and James Franco..... even Howard Stern has been dragged into the thing by 9-11 protesters as he called for a bigger reaction to the Sony hacking comparing it to the 9-11 attack While he was over stating the point somewhat, I think his point that this kind of industrial terrorism shouldn't be taken lightly and he's not the only one who thinks this

    http://www.businessinsider.com/sony-...of-war-2014-12

    . and now Sony employees are suing Sony in the US based upon the criminal actions of these ?N Koreans? or whomever

    my thought is that this is a Japanese owned company based i the US so why aren't we hearing more from Japan's government about this terrorism?

    Sony Is saying..."yeah we thought this might happen" So why didn't they do the responsible thing and make the character a generic foreign dictator?

    Not that I would have seen it anyhow, but this pisses me off that we can't track these hackers and send them a gift in the form of a smart bomb because they are threateing Americans in our own country. This is the very definition of terrorism and this administration insn't doing fuck all about it. I think everyone in the country should now go see this movie in theaters across the country as a big FUCK YOU to North Korea.

    From someone in the space, the administration through the multiple agencies in the IC space is doing more than anyone can possibly know to prevent terrorist acts on US soil. With many more foiled than what makes it onto the news.

    Since it's probably already leaked online, Sony should just say fuck it and release it for free streaming. That way even more people will see this movie that NC is so butthurt about.

    there's a trend to release movies on the on demand services at the same time they are released in theatres.

    I think that's what they will ultimately do with this...I think it;s supposed to be their big Christmas release tho...they delayed it from October, so any theatre this plays in as well as the neighboring theatres would be packed

    not worth the risk IMO

    Okay, so here we have a film that may actually upset people, cause a riot or some other form of national security issue, will the Hussein Obama administration put the film maker in prison?

    I guess it's also okay to make a movie about the assassination of President Bush but not this communist whacko fuck job.

    I see what you did there.

    Yeah this is all a little silly. There were movies made about Adolf Hitler (including a three stooges skit) making fun of him. I guess Kim Jong Il didn't see Team America: World Police?

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    The more I think about this the more I think Sony are the biggest pussies for cancelling the premier and all showings for this, you just cowered to terrorism. These little fucking North Koreans aren't going to do jack shit and now investors who put in millions aren't going to be able to recoup because you are a bunch of pussies. Postpone and get security guards and up the vigilance, don't put your tail between your legs amd retreat, fucking cowards.
    Fuck Sony.

    I think Sony is a bunch of geniuses. They have a movie coming out they need big returns on. They fucked up Spider-Man so bad, they pushed back the third one to 2018 and asked marvel to save them. Big stars like Angelina don't want to work with them so

    Leak all this shit, gets people talking about the movie raising tickets
    Bring Marvel back to the table so it can go from being a 200 mil bomb to a billion dollar entity that try would receive 600 million on

    And leak stuff about Angelina because just fuck her.

    I think Sony figured everything out

    I was thinking about this scenario yesterday.

    Sony has orchestrated their very own clusterfuck that paints themselves as the victim. It's all so 2014 savvy.

    Yeah, I mean it's conspiracy theory, but Sony is bleeding so much money, it seems to me this whole leak thing could net them a ton of cash.
    We know Marvel tried to get the Spider-Man rights for the 3 CA and talks broke down. We also know Sony has no idea what to do with him. I mean a sinister six, venom, spider woman all sound hideous. Talks broke down because Sony wanted creative control. If they are backing off of that, this whole thing could get Marvel back to the table. If the cN keep a good chunk of the studio cash and retain distribution
    Finally a positive cash flow for Sony

    Sony is desperate as they are reeling

    Oh I do not think they're faking it, I just think perhaps they let their security fall little on the weak side and made it a little easier to be hacked

    The US government is ready to announce that North Korea was behind this.

    Sony actually handled this the best they could if they were going to be big pussies about it. Leave it up to the theaters, let the theater owners balk, then cancel it because theaters won't run it.

    If they had just pulled it, they're damned. If they had let it run and even one act of violence occurred injuring even one American, they're damned.

    If we know North Korea did this, then it is state-sponsored cyber terrorism with terrorist threats. So what is the response going to be from our government? We can't just allow nation-states to this.

    I'm hearing they will release this as a premium on demand title. But Guardians of the Peace are just going to threaten any provider that broadcasts the film, so what happens when they threaten 9-11-style attacks on, say, a DirecTV office?
